Rose Listing Omission

Heike Gianotti

At the garden of the Chateau du Rivau, I saw a plant of this rose bred by Lens (according to the label). Although no date was stated, the rose has to be rather new, since Heike Gianotti herself is not an old Lady - I suspect her between 30 and 40.

The rose flowers in a light yellow with apricot shades and it is a typical Lens style Hybrid Musk.

There is terrible confusion of the smaller single hybrid spinosissimas.

I would rather suspect this to be a picture of 'Staffa'.

Hi HMFers,

I think that all roses that are attributed to Christoph Weigang actually "belong" to his son Ludwig. Christoph Weigand died in 1909. In 1904 already Ludwig took over the nursery. There are no references to be found that Christoph actually bred roses, only Ludwig started to breed as a hobby. The main occupation of the Weigand nursery, however, stayed the growing and selling of flowers.

Greetings

Giuseppe

Giuseppe,

Yes, most all of these roses are after his death. Can you provide a reference we can cite regarding Christoph Weigand's history. Thank you.

The contemporary references seem to refer to Christoph Weigand as the breeder of the wichurana hybrids. These were all commercialized until 1911. The later roses are HTs, HPs etc which would be Ludwig Weigand's field.
There is an article in the Rosenzeitung 1904, p. 106, of which I see only a fragment, which will tell us more.
