Just further commentary/experience.

I have gotten it to set one hip so far. Its a bit disfigured though, wide plump on the sides but more flat in the middle, kind of like a behind. So may not be anything in it but its developing rather than falling off.
Wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be a triploid.
Now towards the end of autumn here and it is getting a fair bit of black spots and some yellowing of these leaves, whether its just getting cold enough to go to sleep or a weakness I'm not sure yet, the George Best next to it is still producing new flowers without sign of infection.

The main good things about the plant are its vivid orange flowers that darken in UV instead of fade like most anything with yellow, that it flowers a lot and its dark foliage and bush shape.

Other than that it has a lot of faults. Would assume it was selected purely on flower colour since it does significantly out compete other orange roses ive seen in colour.

I noticed the lack of official naming as's odd

With some of them I assume it's because there's a "similar" plant with more international fame (although often had a lower medal or no medal at all) and that's having a big influence on our market here rather than the better performers becoming the new "standard".

Seems like such a waste when a gold medal or most disease resistant plant isn't released.

I like the look of it but the "does not like temps above 30" troubles me being in Australia (where this was bred...) makes me wonder why the breeders kept it given it likely isn't a super performer in their own conditions.

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.
Reply #2 of 7 posted 24 NOV by Plazbo
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.

It was either a settling in issue or a too hot issue because now in autum/fall (where temps are between 20c and 30c instead of mid 30's to mid 40's celcius) it's producing multiple bloom clusters. Guess I'll find out next year.
