So far I've given this rose two years. I live in Oregon, so it's not a particularlly hot sun, but the blooms seem to be very short lived and bleach as soon as they come out. The pictures of this rose are so beautiful though, that I just keep hoping that it will be so prolific, I won't care.

A lot of Hybrid Musk roses can take a surprising amount of shade and/or partial sun, and this may be one of them. I have mine planted in a place where it gets 1/2 day of sun in the morning, and it's very happy and doesn't fade. That's in Northern California.

There are two roses in commerce that go by the name Excellenz von Schubert: a non-fragrant Polyantha (P) and a fragrant Hybrid Musk (HM). The former is smaller and more shrub-like in growth habit. The later has longer, gracefully arching canes characteristic of the HM class.

I believe the non-fragrant Polyantha is the real 'Excellenz', as early references do not mention any fragrance. But what is the Musk?

It is possible that the non-fragrant polyantha is the true 'Excellenz von Schubert', but in the USA, I think that some nurseries have been selling the wonderful 'Gartendirecktor Otto Linne' under the name 'Excellenz von Schubert.'

Vintage Gardens lists the fragrant, HM, more purple than pink version as EVS. Until someone can disprove it, I think we should accept their version as the standard.

Does the non-fragrant polyantha set hips? I note that no descendants are listed for EvS. George Thomson is using EvS for breeding, and I'm wondering which version we have in Oz.

The description of the fragrance as 'none-to mild' is possibly untrue. There may be two different roses around, one masquerading as Excellenz with little fragrance. The Excellenz we have is extremely fragrant.

Or it is the other way round. Older literature does not mention fragrance. The rose which is commercialised in USA seems to be a found rose, identified as Excellenz von Schubert.

Very interesting since these both look much like the same rose. I have met other people who have grown the non-fragrant one and were convinced that they were the same. I've never been able to compare them. Has someone done so?

We will try to find out more about how Excellenz was identified; might take some time though.

Wow! That'd be wonderful. I just never get the time for such as this.
