Seems everyone is taking photos at the moment. Even I got time today to get out and snap a few. Only taken with my little point-and-shoot though.. not the good camera.

My very own; Kindred Ice (soon to be renamed as 'Rose Tutu'... my daughter, Eliza, came up with this. It's both a play on words and descriptive. It plays on the 80's Aussie soft rock band 'Rose Tattoo' and it looks like little frilly ballerina's tutus Smile )

Great photos Simon! Very Happy

Wow! I might have to try "Sweet Chariot" again. Mine always had BS but the pic of yours makes me think it might be worthwhile giving it another go; it's a pretty little thing as is "Alice Amos" !!!

Eliza has done well Simon. "Rose Tutu" is a great name! I love this rose of yours!

"Just Joey" love

As mentioned earlier I am excited about your "Altissimo" x "Euphrates" too!

I think it's funny that I also use the very same bags (in varying colours) as you do Simon! I never saw them used by anyone else but the moment I found them I knew I was onto a winner! Hahaha...

OK better load my dogs into the car & drive up to Mittaging for my 4 days away! I have been putting it off long enough & now that the rain has stopped I have no excuse! LOL

Keep enjoying the roses...

Simon, your Rose Tutu is such a pretty rose. How is it looking as a bush now ?.
I like the look of Star Light and Wild Rover. can you tell me about them. All you other photos were great , Just Joey, Altissimo, Sweet Chariot, Christopher Marlowe, Alice Amos, and Ann Endt being my favorites.
Is there a White version of Duchesse de Brabant ? Your one of it is certainly is white. Yes I had my once blooming roses bloom again for a bit. My weeper Excelsia had its best blooming yet.
I hope you have a good trip Damo. What type of dogs do you have ?

'Alice Amos' is not a good doer here for some reason. Maybe I just need to give it a few more years. It suffered lots of dieback and now has only one healthy stem... and even this is leafless at the moment. So much for polyantha health Rolling Eyes I was hoping it would be a much healthier plant than it appears to be (though to be fair it is gratfed onto Dr Phooey Suspect ... I will try and strike some cuttings of it and grow it own root to see how that goes... polys always seemt o go better on their own roots for me). Most polys do seem to do really well here so I was expecting good things. I have quite a few polys now ('Mrs Alston's Rose', 'The Fairy', Sweet Chariot', etc) and they all seem to be great doers.

'Wild Rover' is a relatively new release from Dickson in the UK. It is sold through Treloars. It is an amaxing rose down here. Always covered in flowers and it is THE best seed parent I've used this year. One of its parents is 'Rhapsody in Blue' (which I also have), however, 'Wild Rover' does not seem to have inherited 'RiB's dislike of the heat. I forget the other parent to 'Wild Rover', however, Mr Dickson did tell me and I added the information to 'Wild Rover's HMF page if you care to check it out.

'Starlight Rose' is a miniature being sold here as a fund raising rose for the Starlight Foundation. It seems to be pretty good so far and is also a great seed parent if you like splashing around modern rose pollen. I put a few species and OGR pollen on it and they failed. Every flower left unpollinated formed OP hips so my guess is that it loves modern tetraploid pollen.

There is a rose called 'White Duchesse de Brabant' (also known as 'Madame Joseph Schwartz': [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] which is a seedling of 'Comtesse de Labarthe' and this IS available here in Australia, however, I did buy it as 'Duchesse De Brabant'... so who knows huh Dunno It behaves exactly as 'Comtesse de Labarthe' should and it is an excellent seed parent. I've used it extensively this year with pollen ranging from 'Abraham Darby' to 'Scabrosa'.

Beautiful pics, Simon.
...and gorgeous roses.

Good name choice for Rose Tutu. Well done, Eliza

Tell me more about Ann Endt. I'm in love with Scabrosa and plan to buy one this season. How does Ann endt perform in comparison, foliage, disease resistance etc.?

I have a mystery rose that I thought was a groundcover, but it looks very much like Heritage. Can you describe heritage to me?

I would post some pics but I'm still struggling with the "copy" button . I keep having a little trial from time to time. i'll get it eventually! Hmmmm

Hmmm... started well, grew fast, gets mildew prett bad, flowers don't last long and noticed today that the plant has collapsed in the middle, which was weird.. maybe it was all the rain we had recently. Kind of untidy growth after a while. Scabrosa is definately the pick of the two.

Thanks Simon. I will buy Scabrosa.
btw...your Violette is doing well, and phylis de Bide is sending out long strong canes after flowering well. Also the cuttings from your double red groundcover are flowering now.

I also struck Leonardo da vinci, Just Joey and Sally Holmes, and all have flowered. An addict in the making? This is how novices like me get hooked, isn't it? Very Happy

Two I snapped today.. pretty proud of 'Monsieur Tillier'. This is my 'phoenix rose'; it rose from the ashes! The cuttings I put in looked good then died off above ground (pretty typical for me LOL). I left them (well.. more correctly forgot them Rolling Eyes) and from the base of one of the black stems, from below the ground, comes two or three little shoots. These little shoots keeps growing and growing and now the plant is 2ft tall and wide and starting to flower Cool Even going to try a late pollination on it with Rosa bracteata today I think.

'Comtesse de Labarthe' is trying to be pink for me... without a huge amount of success mind you Rolling Eyes

This is 'Rose Tutu' today (trying saying that quickly LOL). I nearly lost it a few months back because some heavy footed animal decided to tap dance on it and smash it to pieces. I dug it up (mid-summer) and mived it to a more secure location and it came back from just a few little stems to this. Pretty happy with this. All the pieces that broke off were struck and now i have a few more plants around in case anything else happens to the original plant.

Nice new leaves... note the leaf cutter bees handiwork Rolling Eyes

Great photos Simon! And your hips are looking great too LOL!!
Good to see Monsieur Tillier in such fine form after his near-death experience... I've just put in some more cuttings.
Sorry I've been a bit slack here- have had a hectic round of 8 am lectures which finish just after Easter.
