Lovely rose! Do you find that you get a pinker color in cooler temperatures? Mine have never been quite as apricot as yours in the photo, but I get more apricot tones in the summer heat, and more pink in the cooler spring and fall temps. Lisa

Very nice, Beth! I’m looking at this rose today at Heirloom’s sight. Do you know how it performs in heat and as a cut flower? Thanks, Elizabeth ( AKA Lisa Adams)

I grow The Faun in S CA on my hot dry slope, in full sun. I am delighted with this rose. It makes a pleasing ground cover and now, in it’s third year, is beginning to stand up a little more. It blooms in flushes, with about 4 weeks between them. The blooms look antique and hold their color surprisingly well. The color does last longer in cooler temps. Mine only receives about a once a week deep soaking, during our very dry 90F-100F summers. I have alkaline clay soil. A very low maintenance rose with beautiful blooms.

Awesome shot, Cori Ann! What a great rose SI seems to be. I wish I had as much space as you do, and as much energy! Lisa

Thanks. My SI is grafted on multiflora from Palatine, which seem to do REALLY well in my acidic clay soil. I’m not sure if it would grow as large own root, but it is a really wonderful rose and I’m glad I have it. :-)

From what I can see, the only place offering it is Palatine, so I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to get it own root. I’m almost certain I saw Schon Ingeborg at the silent auction a few weeks ago. I could be mistaken though. I wonder if that one was ownroot? I should have jumped on it, if it was. I’d love to find one on its own roots, in the hopes that it would stay smaller. Just like you’re experiencing, so many of my roses behave as climbers, and I end up training them laterally. I’d love a nice tidy, compact bush. Did you see the photo by Horst Peters of the 3 compact bushes? It’s on the next HMF photo page from this one. Now THAT’S what I’ talking about! Of course they get winter there and we don’t. I get even less than you do. I’m guessing that has something to do with those nice compact bushes, and maybe those are ownroot. Lisa
