It was worth waiting...Crown Princess Margareta

Post by hariet~rose on 19th May 2014, 19:47

hello Rosarians, I have had this plant against an east facing verandah pillar for about 5 years. It has piddled along and I have been too lazy to pull it out.. glad i didn't... this year it woke up and has been awarded my most delightful rose for 2013-2014..what do you reckon about its flowers?

thank you one and all,
I am not noted for my forward planning, perserverance or patience.. but now i am learning that 'slow gardens' are as good as 'slow food' (mind you it will still be 'off with their heads' for the Dr Huey community in my garden)..

I have never been a fan of roses that have an informal form so normally I wouldn't have a place for Crown Princess Marguerite in my garden.

I looked up both Modern Roses 12  and Help Me Find and couldn't find the rose. Are we sure the rose isn't the George Thomson rose Crown Princess Mary it looks very much like it.

Actually I spelt it wrong, it is Crown Princess Margareta and it is an Austin Rose = Auswinter (from 1991). Mind you, the one i have is less orange than CPM. The internet has both CP Marguerite (which the plant was labelled as) and CP Margareta but I checked an Austin book and it is Crown Princess Margareta (named for the granddaughter of Queen Victoria)

I was able to find a rose in "Help Me Find" when I used the Margareta spelling. There is certainly a big difference in the colour of the rose pasted in this thread and the one in "Help Me Find".  I would go as far to say they are different roses. The different  spelling on the label suggests to me I may be on the right track. It isn't unusual for roses to be misnamed on labels.

On the subject of David Austin Roses I have compiled a six page article in the Australian Rose Annual on David Austin Roses in which the most popular DA's in Australia are listed and described.The ARA is due to come out next month.

John I went to the history section of websites on my computer and found I looked Margareta and came with the orange David Austin rose. Margarita was a typo when I related what I had looked up. I don't whether the old timers disease is worse than I though but I could have sworn the originally posted rose was quite different to the one in the first thread now..

Doug, I have to agree, the photo which hariet posted has changed, unless we have the same 'old timers' disease. I nearly commented on it yesterday. hariets photo had me stumped, I had thought the soil pH might have something to do with it or a totally mislabeled rose. We will have to wait and see if hariet posts again shortly.

John , two of us can't be wrong ?

alrighty, some gremlin changed my photo, but it is back on stage now, the real Crown Princess Margareta from Armidale is at the first post..[how did it get swapped, Roseman I suspect you have been up to no good and trickery?  Witch Doctor ]
i don't own the other image which i recognise though from the web  ..

So why is the colour different?. it never has that consistent all over orange that the interloper photo has.. so a mislabel probably.. my soil pH is high here , about 8.25, but then Abraham Darby is spot on for its colour?

so now i don't know whose posts to answer as everyone may have been saying very nice things about the interloper photo

This is a photo of Crown Princess Mary (Thomson)

I can see a similarity remembering one photo was taken in shade and the other one in sunlight.

That looks very much like my rose ! Is it a pillar rose? Very clever Aurose and thank you so much. I just have to look back over my notes to see if the dates match up.. 2006 was the release date for your rose..that is about right for when i planted mine i think ..  Roses
