I moved the pot this year into dappled shade to see if the yellow flowers held out better than direct sun. It's shade tolerant in that it doesn't die back but it also isn't blooming at all despite being the beginning of summer now, Magic Carousel on the other hand is blooming prolifically in the same conditions.

Has put on a few new blooms here...approx 3 months after the initial spring flush. Maybe it's not strictly once blooming?

So this rose blooms in flushes. So far, it had a heavy bloom at the beginning of spring, now almost summer and no repeat yet? Is this normal? Is the repeat not til autumn? It might just be settling in (it's not putting on new growth either), just trying to figure out if this is normal for it or not.

Hello Plazbo,
'Baby Faurax' does indeed flower in flushes right through until the first frosts in autumn, in fact I don't think there was a time from May to October when there wasn't a bloom open somewhere on the plant.

I guess mines just settling in then given the lack of blooms after the early spring bloom.

My garden is cool and damp during the summer maybe the growing conditions are different to yours, my 'Baby Faurax' also suffers from die back each winter. Patricia grows it, maybe her experience would be in a climate more appropriate to yours.

I have a couple of plants in my acid soil heavy loam. But they are both miniscule. However I do grow it well in a verandah pot where it is watered and fed well with chopped lucerne hay and sheep manure. About twice a year I add about a quarter of a teaspoon of sulphate of potash to the pot. I don't really deadhead it as I am seeking the seeds but am quite sure 'Baby Faurax' would repeat if I did. I get a huge amount of enjoyment out of growing a few seeds each year and they are all, so far, making small shrubs. Last year the rosella parrots heard me thinking that I must pick that wonderful crop of seeds. Later I swept up their crumbs and named the only two I got up 'Baby Parrot Pick' and 'Baby Parrot Reject'. I'll add some photos.

I like the Baby Tooth best of all.

My plant is about 75cm high, my soil is well drained acid loam. Each shoot that it throws up has flower buds which is typical of these dwarf sports. Multiflora hybrids like 'Veilchenblau' and 'Bleu Magenta', to which it is related, grow very well in my cool damp climate too.

Listed as fragrant foliage but I can't find any references or any comments to that effect? Can anyone confirm and if so of what does the foliage smell of?

I certainly can't confirm that. I have a note that this file for 'Roundelay Climbing' was in existence with no breeder or date at the time when I added the discoverer of Langbecker. Peter Cox (1999 ref) says leathery foliage, and I have just gone out and smelled and crushed a leathery leaf of the bush 'Roundelay'. Not a sausage or a whiff of anything. I will change fragrant foliage to fragrant bloom.

It's what I suspected, an error along the way, but given this is a sport it wasn't out of the realm of possibility given unusual sports that have happened in rose history.

Thank you

An Aus sport that apparently reached Spain and Italy, judging by the photos. Maybe sports occurred in Europe too.
