Hi,

Firstly, your garden is gorgeous! Your Gruss an Aachen is just beautiful, but I cannot believe how enormous your Jean Ducher is!

I was wondering where you got your "Irish Fireflame". I have been looking for one for a while, and there don't seem to be any stockists that I can locate it from. Do you remember where you got it? If you could tell me, I would be terribly grateful.

kind regards

Kate Rose

Hi Kate,

My Irish Fireflame was one of those lucky finds - at a small plant stand outside of the hardware store in Toodyay, WA.

I believe their supplier may have been Carmel Rose Farm.

Regards
Amanda

PS I just dashed outside for a look - it has no flowers at the moment - just and a few buds - I'll add a photo as soon as there's one to be taken!

Kate,

If you enter 'Irish Fireflame' in the search field for "Roses", the page for IF will appear. Then, if you click on the "Available At" tab at the top of the page, you will find a list of sponsoring nurseries which carry this rose in their inventory.

Smiles,

Hi Lyn,

Thanks for your help, I have already looked at the where to find page - but you will notice that all the stockists are located in the United States, and because Australia has the most stringent quarantine restrictions in the world, all the stockists I have contacted thus far are unwilling to go through the hassle of getting it shipped here. Although I am willing to pay the AU$200 plus in custom and inspection fees, people are unwilling to get their stock treated with methyl bromide to send it here.

I thought that by asking Briardale's owners, they may have a recommendation about a grower down under. (The 15 Australian stockists I have emailed have all responded that they do not grow it. However, I suspect that Briardale's version must have come from somewhere.)

kind regards
Kate

Hi Lyn

Thanks for the advice - I have already looked in the where to find tab, only to find that they are only available in the United States. The quarantine and inspection requirements for bringing plants into Australia is pretty onerous, and the nurseries I have contacted overseas are universally reluctant to take the bother of sending a plant to Australia. [Having to treat the plant with methyl bromide would seem to be a deterrent especially.]

I was hoping that Briardale owner would be able to tell me where they got their plant - as Western Australia is only a plane flight away. The 15 or so local growers I have contacted do not stock it, and most have not even heard of it. I figure if someone HAS heard of it, it may be a step in the right direction to get it locally. [The customs and inspections fees for importing a plant alone would be $200, so it makes financial sense to find a local distributor.]

regards

Kate

Kate........

Thank you for checking the site for a nursery that carries your rose. I am sorry we do not have a sponsoring nursery that can help you. Good luck in your search.

Smiles,

Lyn

Kate, I didn't see where you live, but if you're in the United States, Sequoia Nursery sells four inch pots of Irish Fireflame. I saw it there last month when I last visited them. This came from my plant which I propagated from cuttings Gregg Lowery and Philip Robinson gave me of the old plant in the old Korbel Winery Rose Garden, quite a few years ago. You'll love the rose! I hope you are in the US so you can order from Sequoia. They're a great nursery! Kim
