hi paul, growing blue river and osiria this year both are very good roses blue river is very fragrant and osiria is one of the best old classic bi-color rose that never fades out.

My father-in-law had a magnificent bush of Mon Cheri. It was about 6ft tall and covered in flowers.

The blooms on Mon Cheri are beautiful. Our bush is only young but seems pretty sturdy (in a very tough spot).

Maree, there are some pix on HMF but not enough info to tempt me to want any of them. The first two are high centered blooms with strong fragrance but there is no health statis in any of them. Based on this I would need to see them growing.

bruce the beauty of HMF is, it shows photographs of roses grown all around the world, in a vast array of growing conditions. When I am choosing parent roses to use in breeding programmes, I always look at the state of the foliage in the photographs, many a time I have knocked back using certain roses using this method of elimination. The roses in question look reasonably clean, but mind you, there is spray residue on the foliage of a few. It may indicate a slight problem with their health

Paul, I initially wanted Mon Cheri, having seen it at Magic Gardens. However the boys there suggested Joy of Life (my alternative pick) as being a better, stronger rose with more flowers.

Paulh, you are in a dry climate so they may be OK.

Thomas sell bareroot at $12ea so $36 plus postage is cheap fun. If they work out, fine, if not then you will enlighten us here on Rosetalk.

Ozroz, gave us a really good tip re health. If they don't mention Very Disease Resistant on HMF then I consider them unsuitable for me to purchase. Gardening can be a lot of work without buying unhealthy roses.

Mentioning (Very Disease Resistant) on HMF does not mean anything these days Bruce, alot of people tell fibs you know and if there is money to be made the fibs can become larger. The best way is to go through if possible the pics on HMF and see for your self.

Warren, the best method I have testing for disease is to go around Swanes in March before they cut everything to get new growth. That really sorts out the duds. I must have been lucky with HMF for most work out OK. I'll pay more attention to the leaves and see how that works for me.

Would appear I have 3 very nice seedlings from last season,
can't wait for them to bloom again when more mature.
It's quite exciting waiting for the first bloom, just like an expectant father. Can understand what has kept you breeding roses for a large part of your life. I've grown roses for 35 years and started breeding 7 years ago, should have been breeding for 35 years as well.

Having been involved in roses for over 25 years I am yet to find a modern rose that doesn't get blackspot in the Sydney Basin if it isn't sprayed.

Fair point there ozeboy, something one should always keep in mind.
