 the tag said Mother's Day and it's now lost...but there isn't anything that I can find that matches it on these pages...the unique cluster is huge and has the pinkish rose in the middle surrounded by yellow...any guesses?

Need your help...where would I find the "David Austin page"?  And...I'm confused by the idea about the parent throwing a yellow blossom...explain to a novice...pretty please? :)  ...here's more photos to maybe help...and yes there is a fragrance...


(...found the site      http://www.davidaustinroses.com/american/) ...but not the flower...

This is a most unusual rose. The center bloom would be the oldest in the spray. If it is a phototropic rose all of them should age to the same pink. Is it doing that?


The yellow roses look like Peace to me. The problem is Peace isn't a floribunda, which this one seems to be.  So odd.  From the rose search page you could do a search for  'ARS' Yellow blend, Floribunda or Grandiflora and see what pops up.


I wish I could be of more help. I'd be very interested in knowing what this little rose is.


I think Jody was refering to the rose bush throwing a 'Sport'.  A sport is a natural mutation. Chicago Peace is a Sport of Peace. Most sports aren't stable, but some are. You would have the different rose budded on it's own root stock and watch it to see if it stayed the same or went back to the orginal variety.


Best of Luck

OK...you've taught me some very important things to watch...including the entire process from bloom to dead-heading!  Turns out we usually cut the clusters and bring them inside when the middle one is pink and the others are yellow...and we've never just left a whole lot outside in the sun to see what happens...and since doing all this I did just that and below you will see what happened.  Exactly what you asked about...all the flowers "aged" to the same pink!  I'm headed over to the ARS pages to see what else I can learn...but thank you for teaching me this important way to observe the blooms!

You are most assuredly welcome.  Intriqued by your blooms I did a search for yellow blend, floribundas and Summer Fashion came up. I wonder if this might be what you have.


I don't grow Summer Fashion, so it's just a guess.

Wow...I was going alphabetically down the list of over 200...and I was on Arc De Triomphe ..which after viewing the variety of photos I could swear that was pretty close to mine...and then I checked your suggestion of Summer Fashion...HAHAH...they are the same!   I guess great minds think alike!  :) Thanks ...I think I'm going to continue taking photos, counting petals and doing more to see if indeed this is it...but it sure is close!
REPLY
Reply #11 of 24 posted 7 JUL 06 by Sandymento
Well, I've found another possibility...take a look at French Perfume...some of the photos look very close too!  I've counted the petals just to be sure and there are about 30...and the ones that have been brought inside are turning almost white with the pink slowly disappearing...so I'm wondering if that's something French Perfume would do too?  And since Summer Fashion says it only has 20 petals, how strict is that count...should I rule it out because of petal count?
REPLY
Reply #12 of 24 posted 10 JUL 06 by Wendy C.

Your rose could very well be French Perfume. I would compare information on both roses. Examine pictures which include foliage and make your decision from that.


I don't grow either, so I can't be much more help... though it certainly looks as if I should grow them both! smile

To find the David Austin page, go to "Breeders" on the navigation bar on the left of the Welcome page and then enter "Austin" in the search field.  A page for the breeder will come up and there will be tabs near the top.  Just click on the "Roses Bred" tab and you will have an alphabetical listing of all of the roses he has bred that are included in our database.

Hi Penny...your buds look different than the early stages of mine...yours look totally pink, where mine are almost totally yellow, then turn pink as the "age"...however mine does have a very slight hint of a fragrance which I couldn't smell as good outside, but indoors you can sense some.   Also, one branch will pop with about 6 buds, the middle one goes pink first while the others catch up going from yellow to pink...is yours a single bloom per branch?-SANDY

Hello.How interesting!    Yes, mine is all pink.  I know roses of different colours could, theoretically, be grafted together, but it's more like to be a sport, don't you think?  I'll do some looking, too.  Good luck with the search.   Bye,Penny.

Hello yet again.I've just found a site that states that roses can change colour palette (on the same bush) so that they are often not recognisable as being the same rose.  I can't seem to paste the link, so I've typed it for you.     http://www.ars.org/About_Roses/propagating-colour-palette.htmThe paragraph is roughly half-way down the page.      Bye,Penny.  :)

Penny, I might not be 100% sure but I think it's narrowed down to Summer Fashion...and everything that I learned in order to guess should help me figure out the next one!  I've got about 14 unknowns and/or ones that aren't behaving like what we thought they were!  Although I'm still comforted knowing a dear friend gave me all these to start our garden, I  will always be grateful that she shared her roses with us before she lost her battle to breast cancer.   Thanks for all the help, suggestions and clues!

If you have that many unidentified roses, I strongly suggest you learn how to use the advanced search feature on the HelpMeFind site.  It's a wonderful tool and you don't have to wait for someone to respond.


I have written several posts with step-by-step instructions, so go to "Search Posts"; enter "Advanced Search"; then click to match the phrase exactly.  You will find the instructions easy to follow and may be able to help others in their searches for identifications of their roses after you have used this tool yourself.


Good Luck !

LYN....Yes, I've been trying to learn all the steps to using that and need some guidance so I will go do a search for your posts, thanks.  I think the best thing I'm doing now is just soaking up every little detail involved with each rose bush.  I've even started a spreadsheet and given each one a code so I don't get mixed up.   There are so many things to learn...we just appreciate the effort on this site to help those of us who are "new" to doing more than just viewing or smelling our roses.  However I did cut some beauties just today and brought them inside...the weather is suppose to heat up by the weekend into the 100+ degrees and I prefer to view the blooms INDOORS! :)  ...hmmmmm...love those fragrant ones! :)  I'm headed over to search posts...THANKS!! -Sandy in Sacramento

I am glad you are going to try to use the HelpMeFind tools on your own.  If you have problems, please let me know.  We want the site to be easy for all users, no matter how experienced they are in using computers or growing roses.


By the way, if you contact the volunteer group that maintains the rose garden at the Sacramento Cemetery, you will meet up with some very experienced and generous rosarians.  They are always looking for new volunteers AND they love teaching what they know about roses.  If I lived anywhere near there, I would grovel to have the opportunity to work with these people.

From the photos, I would almost bet money that your rose is 'Summer Fashion'.  I have grown the rose for several years and have finally given it away.  To me, it seemed to be a weak plant that produced incredible blooms.  Almost anything seems to stress the plant.  (This year, it has looked absolutely wonderful...maybe because it knew it was leaving my garden.)


The bloom form, the foliage and how the bloom ages are what tends to make me believe you have identified your rose.

Lyn, thanks for the extra confidence of it's name...I'm going to be watching it very closely to see if I can get more clues.  This bush is well established, like many that we started our garden with and haven't given us any trouble.   We started buying from a grower in Petaluma whenever we visit our favorite get-away...Bodega Bay!  He's always got the exact rose we want, they always bloom as expected ... sometimes we just "window shop" around the grounds to see which one we will be buying another day!   Thanks for helping me get EDUCATED about identifying roses!

For us ...her gift has multiplied...my husband has always taken care of ours at home and then at his High School we started to care for a rose garden there that was once established, but neglected.  We go in regularly (even over summer) to weed, mulch and fertilize and since it's right by their office...ALL the staff appreciates it!  Plus, we've planted a couple new bushes in honor of our sons, working in education and the Army.  (Hot Cocoa and Honor)  The original roses there were given by another Rosarian years ago and so it's only fitting that we carry on tradition.  My father and grandfather worked in a Nursery many years ago and I'm just blessed to have a spouse that will dead-head and fret over aphids!   :)  SANDY

I love roses and put 12 in just because it was convenient...but soon learned to love care for them daily. I now have 22 beautiful roses and all my beds are free of any weeds but are well mulched with black mulch. Absolutely beautiful and so is my table with freshly cut roses daily. I am eager to learn more about roses.

Hello.I'ts me again, with another unknown rose.  I think I planted a small cutting a couple of years ago and this is the result.  It's a lovely ivory colour with pale yellow buds and doesn't have much of a scent and they hang down.   I wondered whether it was "Iceberg" but I think she's whiter than this.Hope you enjoy seeing her whether or not you know her name.     Bye,     Penny.

Reply #1 of 22 posted 8 JUL 06 by Wendy C.

It could be Iceberg. Your blooms appear to have some water, thrip or some other damage. The damage will cause a white rose to appear more ivory.


How does this one grow? Is it spreading on slender canes? Iceberg is spreading, free flowering and when small has slender canes.

Hello and thanks for your help.. We had a fall of heavy rain over two days and the roses were affected.  They've also all got, or had, blackspot - it's been rife this year.  I've got "something" munching on leaves, too, there are big swathes eaten  out of another rose's leaves.   There aren't many canes yet but what there are are quite slim.  I photographed it this morning and it shows the beautiful peach colour inside.  I've attached a photo in which you can see canes.  I though "Iceberg" was much whiter than this rose but I'm sure there are variations, as you suggest.     Bye,Penny.

Hello Jody.Hope you and your roses are well. :) It's fun, but frustrating, to have unknown roses.    Not sure yet what the rose is.  I've just posted another photo.  The "Iceberg" I see at the garden centre where I clean the cafe on a Saturday evening, and help out with watering when needed, is much whiter.  I'll probably never know but it is a pretty rose, and as it came from a cutting I took from a garden, is a "freebie".                Bye, Penny.

Hi Penny, how are you? Yes having a mystery rose can be fun (and frustrating) I have bought most of my roses from clearance sales, garden club grab bags, and Church sales. and in most cases the people didn't know what they were. I have been very lucky to get quality, beautiful, healthy (if mystery) roses. The only roses not well right now are ones I bought from a Nursery where I paid full price,  a Midnight Blue and a Rugelda. The Midnight Blue wilted in our recent  heat wave and the Rugelda has never thrived even with TLC. I even tried Messenger on it. So anyway, I look at the mystery part of it as fun. Only one of my dollar roses didn't make it and my Apothecary Rose I only paid $1.00 so I feel lucky. Your free rose is really pretty whatever it is.!!!  Jody

Excellent, Jody.  I suppose the "give-away" freebies must be hardy in the first instance to survive without much care, whereas "proper" bought roses are rather refined!  :)Your  "Midnight Blue" sounds interesting, even though it decided to give up, and "Regelda".  I don't know either of them and will look them up.Bye,Penny.

Hi Penny, how are all your roses doing???? My Midnight Blue is actually coming back and looking much better but we are getting hit with another heat wave, so I have it protected from the hot aft sun with an old beach umbrella. It does better with only getting morning sun, so I may move it this Fall.The Rugelda, I have about given up on it. but will give it til next Spring and see what it does. I think some plants just don't thrive no matter what. Right now I am interested in a climber called Hamburger Phoenix, (odd name isn't it.) a beautiful red climber to plant to climb up an apple tree. just daydreaming. Getting good roses from these sales is really luck but I don't buy them from stores , only Church and garden club sales and so far, so good. This last weekend, I got a pot of Rosa Rugosa for $5 at a Church sale and there were 3 starts in it. so we will see how they do. Check out Hamburger Phoenix and also www.oldladyofoldroses.ca.  You have prob run across her on this site and she has gorgeous roses and photos. Hope you and all your roses are doing well?!!  Jody

Hello Jody.We are all, including the plants, sizzling.  Thanks for asking.  The temperature is 104 degrees Farenheit today, hot enough to fry an egg on the paving stones.  I can't walk on them with bare feet!  I'm having to watering the roses in tubs morning and evening, and sometimes in between.  The ones planted against the trellis are being watered every few days as they're newly planted.  I see they are putting out shoots. I think I could have chosen a more vigourous specimen of "Schoolgirl", there are better looking ones in the garden centre, but I'll see how she does.  I'm helping at a local Garden Centre Fete in August, on the book stall.  Hoping for some books on roses.  Good idea of yours, to buy plants at those sorts of places.  I hope there are some roses for sale.  The dogs (four of them) are all feeling like "hot-dogs" and don't want to do much but sleep in this heat.  I wish our normal wet weather would come back.  I like the rain.  :)  I'm having to water the bonsai three, or more, times a day.  Hope your climate is more temperate and that you're well.  I'll go and take a look at "Hamburger Pheonix" (people from Hamburg are called  Hamburgers, so that's probably something to do with the name).  Sounds interesting.  I didn't like red roses much to begin with, but they are growing on me (excuse the pun)!Bye.

Hi Penny, sorry it is so hot there. It is much cooler where I am (70) though it is supposed to be 90 by Sat. Most of the US is in a heat wave. My father- in- law lives in Phoenix, AZ and it's 115. he just doesn't go outside much. So is Schoolgirl not liking the heat or just not thriving or what?? you mention the roses in tubs. so you have alot of your roses in pots? Kim suggested I do that with the Rugelda, put it in a pot, feed it and try to get it to do better that way. So I think I am going to do that. I only have in pots a couple miniature roses and a baby Sitka rose (Rosa Rugosa) a friend in AK started from seed. But I think that's a good idea to pot it and leave it the pot for winter.I  hope your Garden Fete turns out well. I am anxiously awaiting a book I ordered from Amazon for 1.99 . The Random House Book of Old Roses. I have their main book of Rose but this is old roses. re the Hamburger Phoenix, if you went to the site you know it says the name symbolizes Hamburg rising from the ashes of post war Germany. She has some gorgeous roses on that site. I also like Topaz Jewel. well nice chatting with you. I sure have learned alot from people on this site. I'd like to hear more about you keeping your roses in tubs and how they do. are these young roses or? and which ones? Hope it cools down for you and the roses...   Jody

Hello Jody.I've two climbers in big tubs against trellis on the wall ouside the kitchen window and they do very well.  Some labels on roses do state whether they are suitable for tubs.   You are able to control their watering and feeding and give them extra care if needed.  One of them is "Gloire d' Dijon", the other is the one we think is "Abraham Darby", which I grew from a cutting planted in a much smaller pot.  They were put in the big tubs last year and this is the first year of them flowering.The six new climbers are in the ground, one being "Schoogirl".  I think she's just a lesser-developed one than the others I saw at the Garden Centre, and will be all right once she's settled, though her label did say she likes full sun and she's in a position where it's shady around 2 p.m. each day.  Next spring will tell whether she wants moving.  :)What a lovely idea for the name of "Hamburger Pheonix".  Your book sounds good.  I'll certainly look up that site and "Topaz Jewel", thanks a lot.  I like knowing about rose sites.  It's still extremely hot and the plants are being watered morning and evening and sometimes in between.  I'm about to go out and do a Rain-Dance!!  The weather is supposed ot break over the next couple of days, but we will have to wait and see.Bye,Penny.

Hi Penny, we are sweltering here too, with 90 degree weather. very unusual for the Pacific Northwest. At least we have power. Some cities like New York are having black outs. Thanks for the info on your tub roses. I finally dug up the Rugelda and put in a tub in a different location. I have given it two years and as Lyn so aptly put it, then I could make more room in the "rose real estate". So now I will have fun next Spring choosing a new healthy plant. I will probably go with another Rugosa. Maybe that Topaz Jewel. I have mostly pink and would like to go with another color. Interestingly that Mystery Rose I have is still blooming like crazy and the buds have now changed to a deep red. Must be the heat I guess. I can spend all winter pouring over the site and books choosing which NEW rose to get.. such fun!!!! well I think I will go turn the hose on some plants and maybe myself too!!!!  Take Care  Jody

Hi Penny,


Iceberg is the most planted rose in Australia so I am very familiar with it as I have several. I am sure that your rose is not iceberg. It is very beautiful though. As well as fine stems Iceberg has quite distinctive leaves of  very light green. As I look through my rose books I will keep an eye out for a rose similar to yours, regards Lulu

Reply #14 of 22 posted 19 JUL 06 by Meschuee
Thanks very much, Lulu.I do like "Iceberg".  Is it grown so much in Australia because of its hardiness?  There are specimens in the Garden Centre, even a climbing one, I believe, and it is much whiter than my "ivory" coloured rose.  Hope we do come across one like,ome some time.  The stems are patchy with lightish green and then reddish-green markings. It's not very thorny and there's a main bud with clusters of three buds slightly further down the stem and it's fairly compact, at present anyway.For interest, I bought a T-Shirt in a charity shop this morning, the one with a small clematis design had gone, with aboriginal art on it.  I found the painting on the net as it's by J. W. Eastwood - "Balance of Nature".  It makes a lovely design on a burgandy colour material.  The T-Shirt was obviously bought in Australia and brought back here, and is most likely an unwanted, or wrong-sized, present.  :)An on-line friend in British Columbia sent me a photo of their apricot-coloured rose and thinks it's New Dawn".  She's going to find out for me.  Here's the photo, for interest.Bye,Penny.

Hi Penny,


I think Iceberg is so popular because it is so easy to grow and almost never without flowers. It makes a great show. I have climbing Iceberg in also but as it was young last year I haven't had many flowers on it yet, this year it should be good. Iceberg will also grow in a bit of shade so that is handy. It is a spreading open bush rather than compact as yours is. If you can get a cutting of it or the climber it is relatively easy to strike which is why I have a few.


My book describes New Dawn as a wichuraiana rambler of silver-pink with moderate fragrance so we will have to try again for your friends rose. regards Lulu

Reply #19 of 22 posted 21 JUL 06 by Meschuee
Thanks, Lulu.  I'm still waiting to hear from Carole in British Columbia as to whether she can remember what the rose was.  If she can, I'll let you all know.I mentioned to the Manager of the GardenCentre (where I clean and help with the watering)  you saying that "Iceberg" is planted so widely in Australia and he says it's because it's so hardy and will grow anywhere.  I must get one.  I'd love a climbing "Iceberg" and there is one at the Centre that I hanker after each time I pass it.  :DVery hot still - praying that the weather breaks soon.One of the ladies in the shop at the Garden Centre asked me to go out and choose a rose shrub to give to her mother, I took two in to show her and she chose the lovely "Natlie Nypels".  It was covered in flowers.:)
