Is this rose better than Reve d'or?
repeat flowering?
Reply #1 of 3 posted 8 APR by Nastarana
I consider this an excellent landscape rose for a suitable climate. The blooms are tiny but come in huge clusters and they look well against the healthy green foliage. For me, this was an absolutely no care rose. Every once in a while I would cut off the big pannicles of old flowers because I tend to get obsessive about dead heading.

I have not grown 'Reve d'Or'. It does have a much more spectacular flower than Aimee.

Charles Quest-Ritson in Climbing Roses of the World, p 88, gives a parentage of "'William Allen Richardson' X 'Mme Pierre Guillot'".

Dear Lynn,
please let me know the possibilities/ conditions for Sponsorship.
Money is short everywhere, but I really estimate your work, estimate the whole HMF!

Yours, Werner

Please see the Sponsorship section of the site - green menu item in the navigation column on the left. We hope you will join our growing list of sponsors. Please note we currently have special promotional pricing but it only lasts a few more days.

Thanks for the inquiry.

Warum eigentlich? Die Rose hiess niemals so. Esther scheint mir eine Verballhornung von Alister zu sein. Wollen Sie den Namen im Katalog nicht korrigieren?
Reply #4 of 8 posted 10 MAR 09 by Unregistered Guest
Das wäre wohl sinnvoll, zumindest beide Namen aufzuführen. Was mich daran noch gehindert hat ist, daß ich aus Sangerhausen eine ganz andere, großblumige orangefarbene Rose als Alister habe!

Versteh ich Sie richtig, dass Sie
- die echte Alister als 'Esther Stella Gray'
- die grossblumige SGH-Version als 'Alister Stella Gray' im Sortiment haben?
Oder umgekehrt?
Reply #8 of 8 posted 11 MAR 09 by Rosenschule Ruf
Genau so ist es, bis jetzt ist bei mir die SGH- Version Alister. werde Sie wohl aus dem Sortiment nehmen.
Reply #9 of 8 posted 11 MAR 09 by jedmar
Wie wäre es, wenn wir die SGH-Version als Fundrose "Alister Stella Gray (version Sangerhausen)" aufführen würden, mit Euren Bildern? Dann kann Sie evtl. identifiziert werden.
Noch etwas: Ist die ASG in SGH gleich wie die orangefarbene grossblumige, oder hat man Euch diese als ASG geliefert? Es gibt nämlich leider viele Fälle von Falschlieferungen von SGH in den vergangenen Jahren.
