After talking to people from the east coast to west, this rose doesn't perform very well for any of them. Pretty blooms, but doesn't want to grow, and had constant black spot for me, even after spraying. One person in Texas gave up after three plants died. I can't recommend this to anyone, but maybe someone will get lucky with it.

I would prefer first-hand experience from people who grow this rose to hear-say. In the description of the plant it says "very compact". So maybe what you call a bug is actually a feature? I don't know the rose, I 'm just not convinced quoting other people's opinion accounts for much information. No offense.

I do grow the rose. I posted the comment after I had problems, and found out other people did too. I wouldn't have said anything about a rose I don't grow.

There are many people looking for disease resistant roses that will appreciate your thoughts, Witchy. You acknowledged that it might do well for someone, so your comment is A-Okay.

This rose might do well in my area of Southern California where black spot is not an issue and roses are usually super sized here, so the compact nature might be useful in a small garden. We all have different issues. I always look for comments regarding heat and drought tolerance. But sometimes a rose just won't do well in my garden no matter how much research I did before choosing it. My friend a block away from me often has a completely different experience with a rose than I do. Go figure. Recommendations are useful, but should be taken with a grain of salt.

does anybody know, if this rose is already in commerce or will be soon?

You'll have to ask Rogue Valley Roses, since they now have the only stock of this variety.

Thanks for your answer.
I already asked Rogue Valley a few months ago, don't remember exactly if it was concerning this variety or another purple one. Their answer was that they work with it and try to offer it soon...
Are there now new varieties bred by you added to HMF? Some names sound so new to me...
Anyway, I'd like to buy the repeat blommers in dark purple, dark red an lilac, if they are sold in Europe one day. I hope so...

At last, Rogue Valley Roses has this in stock.

Thank you! I've sent them an e-mail right now, if they deliver to germany too. Perhaps a german nursery orders a lot of roses for clients in germany, There were such actions in the past...

Did you ever get your rose? We will be traveling to Berlin this summer if that makes it possible. I don't know what sorts of rules there are about bringing plant material internationally. If it's feasible I'm happy to help. I don't have this rose yet but it's on my list of things to get and could bring a cutting if laws make that workable.

Thank you Joan,
but I think, it is forbidden, just to take cuttings from the US to Europe. You would need several certificats, and they aren't cheap. That's why nurseries from Europe order bigger numbers of plants....
Perhaps a european nursery will import that variety some day.

I ordered a very hard to find rose from the Rogue Valley Roses website and was very pleased with the healthy plant I received. I'm now a repeat customer. They had a bit of trouble filling my second order, because as they explained, it was in stock when I ordered it, but when they went to pull the plant there was an issue that they were previously unaware of. I understand that roses are by nature, unpredictable. I appreciate that Rogue Valley Roses wouldn't mail me a rose that didn't meet their standards. What I didn't expect was a personal call from the manager, offering me the rose from their own garden collection, so that I wouldn't have to wait until they could propagate more. I was really touched by the generosity and professionalism of this nursery.

that's great! I ordered a very unique rose from them a week ago and still have no confirmation of my order. I even emailed and haven't heard anything. Does it take them a bit to respond and/or confirm an order?
I decided to just call to confirm and spoke with a woman on the phone who could not have been nicer. In this day and age I get impatient and expect everyone to be available with rapid response. It's nice to be reminded to slow down and try speaking to a real person for a change!
