I can't do any good with the Delbards at all . Have four..... Belle de Seigneur, Chartreuse de Parma , Souvenier de Marcel Proust and Grimaldi . The Grimaldi does get a few blooms on it but the others do next to nothing. This is their third season and they have grown only very little . They don't seem able to take our summer heat either :roll:

Something different, a Peony tree flower called Corsair.


I'm waiting for my Imperatice Farah rose to bloom, bought as a barerooted rose this year but damaged by workers while they were doing some renovation this year in the backyard. The rose is recovering now, but may take a while to grow and bloom. I can't wait and will post a picture when it blooms.

Thank you 'The Estate'.
That's what the climbing rose is called. I only remember the 'Jean' part in the name.
By the way, the roses in your photo look great!

Dear Ed3n
Your Ebb Tide photos make them look quite lilac coloured. My first Ebb Tide blooms showed up yesterday and they are dark, dark red like Mr Lincoln, with purple undertones... what they'll do in a day or two, wait & see. Also, the fragrance on mine is very disappointing. How are yours for fragrance? Thx.
God created us to work in a garden!

Dear Needsweeding,

If you look at my picture closely, you will see that there are two tones of colours with the Ebb Tide rose. When the Ebb tide rose first opens, its color is much more lighter in purple, abit red (but I wouldn't compare it to Mr Lincoln's red). As the flower ages, it becomes much more purplish lilac in colour and eventually it becomes ashy purple before the flower drops off. As for the fragrance, I'll have to say it's definitely one of the more fragrant roses I have ever encountered. It's obviously very fragrant if you stick your nose to the flower, but there have been a day or two when I wonder where is that wonderful fragrant comes from and I traced it to the Ebb Tide rose. So in saying this, the fragrant can 'waft' in the air for a few metre, depending on the weather. When I compare the Ebb Tide to my Diorescense rose, I find the Diorescense has much more delicate fragrant whereas the Ebb Tide's is much more musky in scent. But I have yet to detect the fragrant of diorescense rose to waft in the air, maybe not enough flower production. The weather has been in the mid 30s all this week.

:( :( must have got a hit of poison or there may be something nasty happening underground (flow of seepage from somewhere), hard to believe a rose that large would suddenly turn up it's toes- very sad.

Oh yes, its so dissapointing.
Very mysterious. :?
We have looked at everything....roots and all.

Now I am going to remove what is left and plant another one!
I will not be beaten by this. :wink:
It will take another 3 years to get where it was ,
but I know it will come back with a new plant.

I will leave the soil for a while and build it up with cow manure etc compost
and have a go with another one.

Meanwhile, we have a bare wall!!
