Last year Meryl sent me cuttings of 'Sweet Chariot' and 'Lady Hillingdon'. I've just planted out a small plant of it that took a week ago and hope it will look this good one day within my lifetime. It's a triploid too (most teas are diploids) and it fertile (a lot of triploids show limited fertility) and worthwhile using as a parent. This is why I acquired it too.

What is a 'triploid" ? Good luck with your little rose plants.

I really like that phot of Lady Hillingdon Rosemeadow. It is the best specimen I have seen and it is nice to know that it can grow that large.
So often successive house owners rip out the old garden so I am surprised this rose has been kept for so long.
I moved my LH this winter to a sunnier spot because she is very slow growing. I hope she does better in her new spot.
