The Firestar series, silky> There are three in the series, and all benefit the CFA of your choosing. Available at Knight's online. Nice-looking roses, they are, too ;-))

The first Firestar in the series is the re-branded Harkness's Easy Does It. Fab creature.

Yes betsy, Firestar was the one I was thinking about. I forgot there was a series of them. I knew someone would know.

I managed to get 'Firestar' (HARpageant) to strike as cuttings easy enough. Great rose.

i really want Firestar/Easy Does It. I baulk at the $26 price tag when the Budget mallet may pulverise the pension.

Oh gawd, I hate to introduce politics, but I HATE the term pension. Paid a lotta tax, 38 cents on the dollar for 25 years, and now I suspect roses are the "middies".

Oh don't get me started. Just joined the PUP party.

yup, and don't look to scientists in Australia for solutions to control new plant diseases, issues with soil health, plant breeding for drought resistance, etc.,  because that budget has been slashed to bits too... but don't get me started....(heh, that could be a name for a new rose, i have one that i have bred that i could use this name on, it changes its colours every day)

How clever you are, Neptune!@ What a great spin on the acronym. PUP is in fact Clive Palmer's Palmer United Party. Never did I think that a corpulent WA billionaire could be a champion, but it turns out he is not unlike the Rockefellers of old, and Warren Buffet and other gazillionaires who take up the banner for the battlers. I love his Rolls Royce, too. I like my champions to be filthy rich ;-)

Clive needs a rose named for him. Something flashy and indestructible.
