Hi Nancy, It hasn't bloomed yet. It is a young plant that I received this spring. There's buds and I will post a photo to HMF when it blooms. I can tell you that it is vigorous and hasn't shown any disease.

Hi Pam,
Thanks for writing back. Where did you buy this, please? I will wait to see your pictures - hopefully you can show the bud, blossom and fade stages. Wishing you masses of blooms and lots of eye-candy in your lovely garden.
Thanks,
Nancy

Hi Nancy,

I bought it from Rogue Valley roses in Oregon. It does look like a nice rose!

Hi Nancy, Danny Boy bloomed and I took photos. At first I hesitated to upload them. I will this morning. After reading the description in The Vintage Gardens Book of Roses I thought what I had must be mis-labeled. After looking at the photos on HMF I do see something closer to what I have. The buds were darker than the blooms. I think perhaps they fade quickly into an orange-pink. It's a young plant too, flowering on a hot day. I guess we'll keep an eye on it as it matures.

Hi Pamela,
Thanks so much for following through and posting the pictures - your Danny Boy truly looks wonderful. I am sorry for such a late response - I got sick right after our series of messages and spent the summer going through multiple rounds of strep. My husband's layoff the next summer put me solely in charge of providing for the family and I could not keep up with HMF.
I read about your life in your description and it is wonderful how therapeutic you have found roses to be, just as I find mine. Like you, I am expecting a move as well and don't want to leave my plants behind. I feel pressured to order Danny Boy anyway (available after a long break at Rogue Valley - and will buy now since you confirm it is the right plant, though the San Jose Heritage Gardens' pic looked like orange red, and this blooms pink) and also because it is not so easily available.
Right now, I am trying to recover from my stupid boo-boo of overpruning - pruned Floribundas and Grandiflora (1) as hard as the old garden roses, and no roses this summer for me. The only one who came through okay was Souvenir de la Malmaison. Sharifa, Camelot and Iceberg (Iceberg, imagine that? Takes special skills to bomb at growing Iceberg). New to me last Fall - mini bands of Tropical Sun, Walking on Sunshine, Miss Behavin' and Black Cherry that will most likely not make it ( I have no idea why Jackson & Perkins would ship like that to 6b - it was a gift from family and they did not know this won't work). The last straggler from the gift, Honey Perfume, came in a few weeks ago and is nice and healthy. Right along with a very healthy Zephirine Drouhin.
With a 1000 roses, you probably have all of these varieties but let me know if you need anything and I can try to make a cutting and root it.
Have a great day, Pamela. And thanks again for the follow-through!

Nancy

Hi! I noticed you have a donau...I'm desperately searching for one but there isn't anyone selling this. Can you tell me more about it? Is it worth the effort to keep looking? Where did you find her? Are there any other good purples you could recommend? I love your garden- Amazing!
