Are you sure this is Manipur Magic? It looks more like 'Evergreen Gene' to me :) - just another wonderful rose.

That's what the tag said from the vendor. I don't know if Evergreen Gene is available here in the US;)

It could be possible that they received budwood of EG rather than MMagic. Have a look at the pictures of EG and compare them with your rose :)

Maurizio,

I supplied material for both these varieties to U.S. nurseries.

They are both wonderful. I'm not sure myself but you could be correct.

Best wishes, Robert

Thank you Robert! Just looking at Manipur Magic pictures because I want to plant it in my garden, and noticed that the rose in two of the pictures looked familiar :)

Yes, they are similar. Manipur Magic tend to be more double, more quartered. I think if we could get a better look at the buds up close it might be easier to make a determination. Of course we could ask Viru.

I saw the second, close-up picture and noticed that the outer petals have a coppery/pink shade which is typical of EG. The leaves of EG are not tipically Gigantea, much rounded in shape and coarser in texture.

It's starting to grow in my garden too. It takes some time to establish.

Nice! This came from my house. What vendor did you use when you purchased it?

Thanks, Robert

Hi Robert,

I got it from Roses Unlimited 4 years ago. It is a great rose for me, like a yellow Belle of Portugal but with reblooming qualities and not so huge.

Thanks,
Izzy

When I grew 'Manipur Magic' I thought it would be a great replacement for 'Marechal Niel'. For whatever reason it seems to have lost vigor over the years.

I gave Manipur to Roses Unlimited and also sent it to Nelson's Roses in Florida where they supposedly budded it to fortuniana.

I haven't heard a word about it in years. I'm glad it's serving you well. It deserves to be more popular.

Viru did a lovely job with this one.

Thanks, Robert
