I have tried to get Jaune Dezprez from all these sellers. None of them have it.
One offered twice to grow it. Going on two years and still no rose.
I had this rose growing in my garden in southern california and it was such a delight.
I don't understand why no one grows it.

You might grow it Yourselves from cuttings.
One of the members in The States offers it for cuttings.

Marigold - are you saying that you have tried to buy it from all the twenty U.S. nurseries that HelpMeFind shows as carrying this rose?

The Antique Rose Emporium has it and I have purchased one from them.

Jay-Jay your pictures capture durandii's matt powder-blue colour perfectly, if only a rose could be bred that colour...

This is a rewarding Clematis, it flowers for months on a row till it gets to cold. Easy to maintain, it only doesn't grab other plants to stay upright or climb. Sometimes gets some mildew, but survives that. Doesn't freeze to death. As for colour, it combines/matches with a complete palette of (climbing- and/or shrub-) roses.
I'm not particularly waiting for such a rose (probably only possible with gen-tech) I like the roses how they are naturally and crafted by hand-pollinating. I really like Hulthemia persica ( ) but detest its offspring in combination with roses. Than I would rather take a Hibiscus to have blotches on flower-petals.

It is always interesting to see what can be bred that pushes the limits of shape or colour or fragrance etc. I remember at Wisley in the mid 1980's they were breeding red Delphiniums.

Andrew, look at Blue for You and Rhapsody in Blue. Both are related and both can often express nearly the color you point out.

Thank you Kim. I really like these blue roses a lot but they are always in the purple/pink spectrum apart from genetically manipulated varieties like 'Applause'. Personally I think 'Baby Faurax', 'Bleu Magenta' and 'Reine des Violettes' have some of the bluest tints of any rose. I remember as a very young child my grandmother growing 'Blue Moon' and all the adults looking excitedly at this "blue" rose. It was still quite a new variety. I could not understand what all the fuss was about, like the emperor's new clothes.

You're welcome! Thankfully, here they are sufficiently variable that they honestly do generate the tints you see in Baby Faurax, Reine des Violettes and Bleu Magenta. Ironically, Reine des Violettes is very often pink-lavender to nearly white here due to our heat, brilliant UV and alkalinity.

well I'm lucky sometimes to have the opposite, coldness, low UV and acidity!

Beautiful Jay-Jay! I’m considering purchasing this one. How do you think it would do in my So California heat? I’m interested in it for its long blooming period and short, nonclimbing habit. I could provide it with afternoon shade, by planting it in front of my Annie Laurie McDowell rose, but I’m wondering if that would affect Durandii’s blooming. Thanks, Elizabeth

I can't comment on how it would behave in Your region/climate.
It is a climber and wouldn't call it short, but doesn't grasp the normal way. It needs support of some kind and partially tied to anything that climbs or supports.
