New Kordes releases for 2014 in Oz

Post by betsyw on 26th January 2014, 16:00

Well, folks, here they are. (mostly Kordes, I think) Sad to say there is only one among them with decent scent, and it looks ho-hum. In fact, this batch all looks like we've been-there-done-that. What do you think? Have I missed soemthing special? Anyone interested in any of these new creatures?

Yeah, maree, the only one touted as having great scent is "Addictive Lure" (Will no one help Kordes with their English language names? )

Nothing in the new release bag jumped out at me last year, either, and the year before that I fell into the scenic trap and bought Perfume Passion - a million medals, and not one thing aboiut it I liked, in reality.

roseman, I'm not sure I can figure otu what we might be getting from teh Kordes site

BTW: can anyone identify the Kordes rose on the cover of the company's official Jubilee "biography?[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just checked out those new releases and I see what you mean. Nothing there that lights my fire, that's for sure. Then again I generally steer clear of new releases until I hear great things. Exception being Ebb Tide. Wished I'd waited and invested in a rose I can love.
Now that rose on the cover of Kordes' book, maybe it's just me and I am weird but that makes me feel bilious, sort of mouldering balls of yuck. Sorry.

Silky , i'm with you now , i have bought so many new releases and been dissapointed in them , that why this forum is so good , you've got a opportunity to ask and find out if a rose is a dud .  Blackberry Nip i am definately not happy with the fragrance and Black Caviar has had about three blooms , first year though ..  I too bought Ebb Tide and that was a flop too ...

Okay Jordan , you buy it and let us all know how it goes .  Can i ask Jordan do you ever chuck any of your roses out or give them away ?   I'm starting to think that you are a rose magician who pulls them out of his hat lol

I"m sure it would make life much easier for you Dan if you had enough space to grow at least some in the ground. Have you thought of any designs for your dream garden?

Betsy, I was trying to show what Kordes are releasing in Germany. Some or none of these might get to OZ, the one's being trialed by Treloars could be totally different. Not all releases are fragrant, IMO they should be, but it comes down the the breeder and agent what is released after trials.

BTW: can anyone identify the Kordes rose on the cover of the company's official Jubilee "biography?[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

To the best of my knowledge the names of them is listed in the book, I have not got mine at present as I sent it to Diane(Dimity Cottage) to read whilst recovering.

Love your plans, jordan71. Many worthwhile ventures started with a dream!!! If you haven't already ... You could always put it on paper first - draw up a plan, write out lists of roses...
