Hi There,

My name is John, I'm searching for a Cleopatra Rose. It's reddish pink in color with white accents. I've called around 50 growers and had to luck finding one.

We lost our cat, Fuzz Face, whom we often called Fuzzopatra. We're hoping to bury her ashes with a Cleopatra rose as a tribute.

Do any of you have a Cleopatra rose in your garden? If not, do you know anyone who might?

I thank you for any of your time and efforts with this. Have a great day!

Hi John,

I did see that Heirloom Roses in Oregon and Hortico of Canada may have it. They are selling Cleopatra under a different name, Peace of Vereeniging. Seems odd! If you found it though you could re label it Cleopatra.
Good Luck,
PS I understand about kitties . I have two roses that I raised myself, Madame Zazu and Jenny that I named for my kitties.

Would you please share a picture of your Danny Boy Sam McGredy climber?

Hi Nancy, It hasn't bloomed yet. It is a young plant that I received this spring. There's buds and I will post a photo to HMF when it blooms. I can tell you that it is vigorous and hasn't shown any disease.

Hi Pam,
Thanks for writing back. Where did you buy this, please? I will wait to see your pictures - hopefully you can show the bud, blossom and fade stages. Wishing you masses of blooms and lots of eye-candy in your lovely garden.

Hi Nancy,

I bought it from Rogue Valley roses in Oregon. It does look like a nice rose!

Hi Nancy, Danny Boy bloomed and I took photos. At first I hesitated to upload them. I will this morning. After reading the description in The Vintage Gardens Book of Roses I thought what I had must be mis-labeled. After looking at the photos on HMF I do see something closer to what I have. The buds were darker than the blooms. I think perhaps they fade quickly into an orange-pink. It's a young plant too, flowering on a hot day. I guess we'll keep an eye on it as it matures.

Gregg Lowery thinks this might possibly be Souvinier du Dr. Jamain.

I obtained my 'Souvenir du Dr. Jamain' from Vintage Gardens, and my plant is definitely NOT "Pulich Children". What I have is mostly thornless, throws long, climber-like canes with short laterals, and the blooms have far fewer petals. I do, however, have something else which strongly resembles pictures I see of "Pulich Children", and that's 'Monsieur Boncenne'. Another possibility could be 'Baron de Bonstetten'. According to lineage information on here for both, they're siblings. And Vintage Gardens maintained that they're mixed up in commerce, but claimed to have obtained correct examples of both before they closed. I'd be tempted to try "Pulich Children" just to compare, but as it is, 'Monsieur Boncenne' really struggles against blackspot here. And I'm thinking the same would happen with "Pulich Children".

How large does Pulich Children get? I've just ordered it, but need to know how much space to give it.
