Sight Saver rose

Post by betsyw on 23rd February 2013, 10:09

Anyone ever tried this rose? Yes, I know it's a baby pink :gag: but the perfume is reputed to be excellent honeysuckle, and the blurbs say it is a good cutting rose, good repeater and very healthy. (but they would, wouldn't they>) It's a Fryer rose. HMF doesn't ahve a whole lot of independent info on it.

Betsy, is that it's name or charity name. Have you looked at Fryer's site.
On HMF did you look at the comments and reference listings of it.

I have alreay checked , and couldn't find it on the Fryer's site.

Its formal name is Fryaffair,. In the USA it was called "The Oregonian", a promotional name marking the 150th anniversay of the eponymous Portland newspaper ( Hardly designed to catch on in the wider US)

Here, it's the rose that benefits charities like Fred Hollows, I understand, hence the name.

Best I can find is it is listed at Treloars, but might be discontinued because of it's age

Swane's has it too. Must be something salesworthy about it. It was bred no that long ago - 1998.
