There's a bit of a muddle here. Three distinct roses seem to have been lumped together. Each should have a separate entry on the HMF database. They are [1] Clos Fleuri Jaune [Delbard, 1988] [2] 'Deljaune' Centenaire de Lourdes® Jaune [Delbard, 2010] and [3] 'Delmarie' Rose de Lourdes® [Delbard, 2016]. Please could one of HMF's experts sort this out? You'll have to sort out the pictures, too.

The flowers should be semi-double.

A newer photo on the website does show more petals than the original photo. Semi-double seems a more accurate description.The photo posted here was supplied by Poulsen. The current Poulsen's website describes the flower as single but the number of petals as less than 15.

Wrong colour. I'll upload a correct picture.

Would it be possible, please, for one of the HMF bigwigs to go through the Welt-der-Rosen website and ensure that all roses that it lists are represented on HMF?

And, if possible, it would be helpful to know the contact details of the HMF person to whom I should suggest other roses be added to the database.

I hear that the hmf volunteers are few in number and overstretched. It would be preferable for you to suggest to the nursery that they establish and maintain their plant list on hmf.
Anyone can add new roses to hmf, via Rose listing omission, but I gather it makes it easier for the volunteers if descriptions, breeder codes and photos are supplied.
Best wishes.

Thank you Margaret. Well said.

Thank you - that's helpful, at least for nurseries. But what nurseries that no longer exist? And sites like Welt der Rosen that are maintained by knowledgeable individuals? And roses raised by amateurs that find their way into commerce? I suggest that HMF should consider where the weaknesses in its coverage are most conspicuous and try to priorise the options for action.

Roses can be added via the Missing Plant option, under Plants on the left-hand menu of the main screen.

.....But what nurseries that no longer exist?

That is one other way you could help, Charles. We could add a listing for something like
Joe Bloggs Nursery – 1930 Historic Archive

We could then link you with this Nursery file and you could either
Add their roses, one by one.
Or add their roses in one typed listing . There are more instructions for adding a listing here:
See the white box, somewhere near the top-right HOW DO I
