    I’m also done ordering from HR. i ordered quite a bit in 2022, mainly to get Spirit of Freedom and then got the other 2 roses for free shipment, but one rose died, Beverly is the surviving rose beside Spirit of Freedom.

    i think some of these nurseries have to be careful, if not people will not order from them. i already decided not to order from Raintree Nursery for fruit trees, what used to be $20-30 a tree is now $99 a tree. it seems like a rip off to me.

    i finally found a source of roses that are cheaper than Regan nursery and i would order from Regan again too.

    I'm glad to report my Comte de Chambord is finally putting out a new shoot, yay, i didnt kill it.

    I'd like to put in a good word for Tradescant. Not sure if I can say it's my favorite, but I wouldn't be without it. I can't seem to figure out how to post pics, but I know Patrick (my enabler on that one) has some incredible pics of it that might be nice to add to this thread. General Jacqueminot might actually be my fave - at any rate, every time I see it I say that. Trouble is, it is very prone to BS. But, oh, the perfection of color (whitish-bluish blush backing) and nodding, full blooms... Celeste - love your pic of General Washington. It has long been on my wish list, but I have hesitated to get it, since so many HPs have disease problems and (to me) awkward plant habits. Is it a lot of trouble?... Souv. du Dr. Jamain is the second most remarked upon rose in my garden the first being Jude the Obscure). Smoldering, saturated, and trouble-free. I call it my Dr. Huey substitute. Am I the only one who actually really likes the old doctor? They are in bloom all around town right now, and I can't go anywhere in the car without taking long detours just to see them all. I know they'll look like hell in a few weeks, after bloom, but gosh, so will some of my HPs! :) Call me a simpleton, but Dr. Huey was actually the rose responsible for my interest in old roses. Since childhood I loved that mysterious, arching old rose that graced so many of the older houses around here. If I could only have one, I thought... Well, when I grew up and moved back to my small hometown, I went searching on the web for that old thing. Couldn't find it anywhere. But, I found lots of other gorgeous, smelly old roses and lovely specialty nurseries and this wonderful, helpful forum. And it was here that I finally learned the identity of my first rose obsession. And nobody likes it. Why? I still don't have one (nearly acquired one a couple of weeks ago, but that's another long story...), but sometimes when I drive about town, looking at all the spectacular Dr. Hueys, I think just for a moment that maybe my grand, elaborate rose show is still not the equal of a single mature specimen of the reviled old doctor. Am I just crazy? Over-romanticizing my first rose love? Or are there others who appreciate this rose too? With humble pleas for tolerance of my heretical views, robiniaquest (or should it be Dr. Hueyquest?)

    Your roses, flowers garden structures, and garden beds are extraordinary. Your videography is extraordinary. I will point out for others that I lived in Tallahassee 40-years ago. It is a challenging area in which to grow roses because of the high risk of fungal diseases which makes Hoang's results truly impressive, and greatly appreciated from this distance.

    March 7, 2023, I repotted 2 Brugmansias yesterday, after growing all winter inside home, into 12” pots still growing in bay window. They have been turned toward sun to straighten out leaves. Pots & Brugs are actually twice as big as photos Jan. 27 above. (They will be moved to bigger pots when it’s warm for outside.) Fruit Salad Brugmansia Angel Sweet Summer Brugmansia March 7, 2023: 3 PASSIFLORAS in bay window of home all doing well, filling out more leaves, BIG inside pots. Possum Purple Passiflora , in second season now, grows the best-it has the most hardy big glossy leaves-overgrowing it’s pot/obelisk & I just don’t want to cut it back-so beautiful & green-little gangly, Lol! ! May Pop, in 3rd season now, sprouted 5 new shoots & has many new long stems filling out obelisk, again. Victoria, in second season now, is nice & green, very full in obelisk! Daily watering makes them all most happy inside/outside! MORE TROPICALS: I’ll add a new African Violet, Orchid, Mandevilla and begonias as warmer weather comes. Anyone adding tropicals to their rose gardens this spring? Love to see photos?

    Kitty, I'm fascinated by roses like Yolande d'Aragon, which I never would have considered for my hot and dry location, where I used to grow mainly teas, Chinas and small Bourbons. However, I now have Grandmother's Hat, which is a HP, and it seems very happy in the heat. What I love about the old roses is the variety of leaves, flowers and growth habit which gives them their unique charm. Some of the modern roses have really beautiful flowers but the whole package is very similar to the rose next to it and the one next to that. I know I'm being a bit unfair in that generalization, but for what it's worth the antique roses have my heart, and what better reason to grow them?

    Edited: How could I forget fragrance, and there again the moderns have that too, but still........

    Carol - My Reine des Violettes came with no root system ! I've never received a rose in that condition before so it's likely growing much slower than normal. This is it's second year; it's still pretty small, maybe a foot and a half tall after the last roses were trimmed down. It puts out around a dozen blooms and then takes a rest. What makes it most worth growing is no thorns or prickles, no nothing but beautiful dark pink/purple flowers. I have it planted by the hose reel - it does get bonked on occasion but is safe for me and the neighbors to hose around by it.

    Kitty - I was really distressed over Amara's teeth, her fangs were getting brown at the gum line. Dental problems lead to all kinds of health problems and can affect their heart. Our old dog had to have teeth pulled, it was a terrible ordeal.

    Someone suggested getting Amara an antler chew; it works great to remove plaque and now she won't have to get a dental cleaning.

    At least RVR still keep the same prices and they are in Oregon. i like to buy from nurseries in California, so far i had very good luck with Huntington Library rose sale. I tend to over buy when things are cheap, so when they raise prices i know I dont have to buy anything, however i really like to look at online catalog. years ago, i like to look at seed catalog every year.

    Anyway, i did more digging today and it looks like i may need to move my favorite reliable bloomer, Violet’s Pride, it has buds, but if i dont move this rose, i cant dig and remove more of the palm roots, the heatwave is coming.

    Thanks @Sheila, i just moved Heirloom and I put it in the shade, it seems to do fine, I need to dig all the bad roots out, it drives me nuts not doing anything, maybe i’ll try again tomorrow. It does concern me.

    Edit to add, well maybe not, i will dig around this rose for now. My husband said next Sunday will be cooler, in the mid 80s, so I’ll wait until then.

    GardenNut - good to hear that your Comte de Chambord is still alive. :) :) Mine is building larger buds right now. I love your philosophy. Gardening makes us all happy. What more can we want from life. :) :)


    Kitty - ooooh...what a beautiful Yolande d'Aragon!!! What is the fragrance like so far?


    Ingrid - yeah, OGRs have the market on charm, that's for sure. :) :)


    Berrypie - No root system? Poor thing. It's got a big job growing new roots and trying to thrive. No wonder it's still small. No thorns or prickles...safe for kids, dogs and those trying to grab the hose. :) :)


    Berrypie and Kitty - I've always been afraid that antlers will break my dogs' teeth. Have you had any problems like that?

    Carol, Thank you! Yolanda d’ Aragon rose, dated at 1843, bred by Jean Pierre, is a wonderful breathtakingly strong old rose fragrance of raspberry violets. She has a first flush & repeats. Her blooms will be big & voluptous! She has been called a Damask Perpetual, Hybrid Perpetual, & Portland…. having roots in these categories. I call her an HP. her history is marvelous! Read about Yolande d’ Aragon , born a princess of the small state of Aragon, married Louix II of Anjou, she became a committed supporter of the French royal family w w/ 5 children. Her son Charles became heir to the French throne. She supported Joannof Arc to fight against the English, so Charles became King of France.

    She quelled many squabbles in the French aristocracy as a wonderful diplomat. It’s understandable to give her nsme to a very outstanding rose!

    SolCalGardenNut, Your deseite to clear out the roots is wonderful! Very good that you are waiting until it’s cooler. And the opportunity to buy roses at the Huntington sounds wonderful! I would stick-up, too! However, for me now… I only hunt out very unique roses as I should not add many more. I fin’r mind whete I get it from if I find the perfect rose now.,

    Ingrid , Our love for old garden roses is certainly worthy! Grandmothers Hat dounds truly wonderful-glad she enjoys your sunshine! Their intense fragrance is unmatched in my garden of 140 roses! Their unmatched natural voluptous beauty breathtakiing! Their history-Oh, My My-live it! Their names are intriging! Simply subline!

    rosecanadian you're right , I forgot about that possibility the antler could break our dog's teeth, especially old Zephyr might be more inclined. Weighing it out , Amara's gums were always inflamed , I know that can be a dangerous condition. She happily chews her antlers and it keeps her gums healthy so it's worth the risk for now. Just thinking of the sound she makes chewing is euphoric to me too. No wonder I'm building her an antler collection.

    The OGRs do hold an undeniable attraction, we all know what reading about them leads to.

    I've come to the conclusion I'm moody. Thankful for what is growing and for it's health, there's something still missing in the garden. The dinosaur is still sitting on a shelf , today is his big day to go out . I'll gratefully count my flower blessings, and do a little more seed shopping...

    Today i removed boat loads of big roots again, however i didnt have to touch Violet’s Pride, but i think it‘s a good thing I’m doing this, i can see it improves my growing area and that means I can grow more things.

    Once I’m done wth this area then i know what OGR roses i can order. Right now i think this soil even chokes my 2 newly added Japanese roses and they are planted very far away from the palm tree.

    Kitty - I loved reading your comments on Yolande d'Aragon!! Having OGRs really involves a bit of history each time you look at a bloom.


    Berrypie - And being a Staffy, I think that Amara has stronger jaws and teeth than a Standard Poodle would have. Awwww...I love how much you love Amara. :) :) Our dogs are so special to us. :) Something is missing in your garden...seed shopping is definitely called for. I'm also searching for more seeds. :) :)

I need some flowers in my new flower bed for August…. Hmmmmm maybe seed shopping for me, too? What flowers shall I grow? You could reply in the new summer thread….?

    @rosecanadian

    , I love reading about history of the OGRs!

    I could get lost in reading about the English, French, and Spanish crowns, conquests, and their families!

    OGRs History:

    I am thinking sonetime of having a thread complete with history & photos of each of my OGRs. It is just sooooo interesting.

    Yolande of Aragon, lived first in NE Spain (Aragon) & united this Aragon state with the state of Anjou in France. Later, after her marriage to Louis II she became Queen of Sicily, Naples & Jeruselem. She was so actively involved in politics and helping Charles Vii to become King, that her name is even in many documents with Charles VII in the 1400s. She was nearly a coruler in influence with Charles. In addition, Yolande de Aragon also raised her granddaughter, Margaret , and taught her political maneuvering, who married King Henry Vi of England, who became insane at times. Margaret ruled for Henry at these times. Margaret was a principal figure in the War of the Rose. Thence we have the:

    White Rose of York, Rosa Alba

    &

    The Red Rose of Lancaster

    The Apothecary Rose (Rosa Gallica Officinalis)

    When the War of Roses ended Henry united both houses, he combined the red & white roses later to become: the Red/White Tutor rose emblem. There is no Tutor rose in our plant world, that represents this emblem some say., but maybe it’s time to name one? The Tutor Emblem rose has a red outline & white inside-which rose shall we name for it? I knda like to think of Rosa Mundi being red (pink) & white & a sport of the Apothecary Rose as if it came from the red & white roses.

    If I had a gardener to care for my roses & more yard space I’d add these historic roses, too!

I already knew a lot about her from my daughter (another history buff, like you). In fact, she got me a Tudor Rose Christmas ornament. It's velvet with the two roses. Maybe this Christmas I'll take a picture of it and post it. Plus I have a really cool puzzle about the Tudor Rose...and I bought her one too. :) :) Look at this! This only shows part of the puzzle.

    Salmon sounds so good - think I will open a can of salmon for dinner to share with Amara. On a hot day a sandwich with icy lettuce is about my favorite. As long as Amara gets a taste of what I have on top of her kibbles, she's satisfied.

    My La Reine from Heirloom Roses is an aggressive grower ! At this rate by next year she's going to get claustrophobic in her small space between Carding Mill and Abe Darby. Especially now that La Reine had a baby, somebody has to move.

    The three overgrown Cosmos will be pulled out a few weeks from now . I need to find a source for cow manure to beef up the dirt for planting new roses in Spring.

    There is $ 10 reward waiting on my account with Heirloom . I am already birthday shopping, although mine is December. It's a tough decision between Madame Isaac and M Dubost.

    Kitty , do you remember which is the thornier of the two ?

    Berry, I think they both have a few thorns, not unusually that many. don’t even notice their thorns. The photos by HR are good respresenting Mme Dubost & Mme Isaac Pereire. Mme Dubost can get 5ft and Mme Isaac P can climb 8ft, their height may be of interest to you? With Mme Isaac Pereire you may eventually have more blooms with a taller rose, another consideration. Both amazing fragrances & beautiful voluptuous blooms!

    Salmon sandwiches sounds yummy! Amara should be very happy! Anastasia loves salmon, too!

    How tall is your La Reine? How many blooms? I think I have to plant her in the ground next spring to see max growth & blooms! Your Ka Reine sounds sensational!

    Kitty- La Reine is far better than I hoped . It's interesting to see her undergo her shape shifting and color changing , totally charming - I take that back, her thorns are not charming. I can put up with that flaw in her character , possessing so many positive attributes.

    Mine was newly planted in Spring, there have been a handful of blooms. None are open presently , there are green buds gaining strength. La Reine is approaching 4 feet I think. I should measure the height tomorrow. The baby sucker is even growing fast ! I really love the plants i receive from Heirloom Roses, all have been exceptional.

    Carol - it thrills me to know your Fama White seed traveled all that distance to grow in your yard ! You might get a bunch of seeds off it too . I'm anxious to know if it crossed with the Black Knight or if it stayed pure.

    Thanks Kitty and Carol. Today i found out i have a few Chandos Beauty buds, I’ll see if i can take a picture when it’s fully open. when i got back, it had a long stick but no blooms, so i cut it down, it must put the energy into making flowers.

    I also discovered my white hydrangea is alive, I’m so glad, it’s in a clay pot and not planted down.

    But I’m moving a lot of things today. One of my Fuji Goromo, a rare tree peony that i purchased last year didnt even come up. I have to move something there, but it’s frustrating, i’ll stick to roses, much easier to get some satisfaction.
