Get your best "rose" brain working on this problem.

Post by helenmargaret on 9th April 2013, 16:41

I have seen Rosa 'Rosarium Uetersen' in a rose book. WOW. It is also called 'Seminole Wind'. It is a vigorous coral pink climbing rose from Kordes I believe. Does anyone stock this rose in Australia? And if not, what is the nearest thing to it for planting in Canberra (-7C to 40C). I want lots of flowers, like a wall of flowers, preferably repeating. Planting will be at the back of an 'orchard' garden space so it needs to be a strong "look after myself" rose rather than a "hold my hand" rose. Thanks in anticipation. Helenmargaret.

Helen, "google" it and see what comes up. It might show nurseries which have it in Australia.

There are so many roses in the world; if you don't find that one you really want, you can substitute it with half a dozen others. But also, don't forget that roses are tricky things; a rose may look beautiful in the book, but is something else in real life.
A tip: buy that what you see in person, in a real garden. I often wanted roses based on the book info, but when I came into a nursery, I almost always changed my mind because there I saw roses that do grow well in my own climate.

Good point about seeing them in person! Tried to google but absolutely no luck. Thanks for the advice.
