This is a really GOOD rose! And probably in the mix when it has been discussed who/what did/didn't get an AARS accolade.................THAT being said, I do think it is odd that THIS rose---a pink-to-coral Floribunda---is what was named for Bill Warriner! Because unlike Gene Boerner (and HIS namesake is a PERECT tribute!), Warriner really specialized in Hybrid Teas and he rammed into our rose history that "color change" fad of the 70's.............when I think of Warriner I think BIG and LUSTY as much as color change---he used South Seas extensively for that FAT bloom and think Tampico, Spellbinder, Antigua,Color Magic, Medallion, Pristine, Headliner and so on----he maybe got a little scattered (Red Reflection?! How and moreover WHY?!!!!)................he got a little over-rated at the end (Cherish?!)..............but he was a Hybrid Tea man! DREAM COME TRUE-----the Gr.from Dr. Potterschmidt----THAT is what I would see as carrying Warriner's name, soomething like that...............or just a big fat coral that fades red or something, but a Hybrid Tea, a BIG rose...............

The rose's parents 'Sun Flare' and 'Impatient' were both bred by Bill Warriner.

I guess the funny part is that Dream Come True descended from NZ and UK bred roses.

Bill Warriner was my FAVORITE floribunda ever. But it defoliated religiously here.

If someone were to re-create it, but with Knock Out's foliage... they could take over the world :]

I haven't grown this one in years and have toyed with ordering one from Jackson & Perkins. I just remember it being a very small, short bush...but I also remember it being COVERED in blooms. Was that your experience too?

Yes. Perfect little salmon-coral-peach HT blooms in tight bunches on a short plant.

I loved it. Couldn't deal with a naked plant though.

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.
Reply #2 of 6 posted 21 OCT 14 by Rosentrost
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.
