Does anyone know where I might buy this rose in the U.K.?

No selling nursery listed in the UK, but You might buy a plant of it at one of the 5 listed nurseries in the rest of Europe. Most do ship to the UK.

Thanks Jay-Jay, I just ordered one from Denmark for forty quid! I can't believe no one in the U.K. sells this rose. Also I can't believe that there are no growers here specialising in miniature roses and I have had to order 'Erinnerung an Brod' from Germany.

Hi Andrew,
The recession urged quite a few nurseries to downsize their stocks and/or number of varieties.
Quite a few didn't make it through the recession.
And a lot of nurseries do not update the content of their stock-list, or even bother to list themselves or their stock on HMF.
Sometimes one needs to go way further from home, to collect the roses of one's liking.
Best Regards, Jay-Jay.

The Century 12: 435 (July 1876)
Science explains and classifies; its flowers are always in rows, as at a greenhouse. Poetry comes along, selects a rose-tree, takes it home, and sees it blossom in the front yard.

Poetry, in the disguise of a friend of the present writer, did this very thing the other day. It or he—the friend—bought a Gloire de Rosaméne from a sordid city greenhouse and planted it in the little strip of earth that runs between brick-walk on one side, and high brick-wall on the other, along the whole length of a certain long and narrow front yard in this very city. Do you know the Gloire de Rosaméne? It is first cousin to the wild rose. It has the grace of culture, but it has not lost the charm of nature and of the country. “It is an abundant bloomer, and its flowers are cupped, large, semi-double, and of a brilliant deep scarlet.” One dewy morning we saw it open its deep eyes and put to shame, with its intense, and penetrating, and reticent gaze, the shallow classification of the mere man of science.

The Gardeners’ Monthly and Horticulturist 2(7): 195 (July 1860)
Among hybrid Bourbons Souvenier d’Anselme proves particularly hardy, and will drive Gloire de Rosamene entirely out of cultivation as a pillar rose. We call attention to this matter at this season because now is the time to take notes of such as grow strong and vigorously.

Thank you! What a perfect description of 'Gloire des Rosomanes': "....the grace of culture, but it has not lost the charm of nature."
I am so glad to have this rose in my garden. Rarely without a bloom, it adds that charm and liveliness to the garden and to any vase or posy. The buds and hips and red stamens and leaves that look as though they have been cut out with pinking shears are all delightful.

I just wish I could grow it here. But our winters are too harsh, I think, for this fine old rose.

It hasn't been the easiest rose to grow here Karl - took quite a few years to begin to grow happily in hot summerland. As a young plant, the stems were more susceptible to sunburn than other roses and that set them back quite badly each summer. Lost the first plant to sunburn and the second one was given a bit of protection - I used dried grass to loosely cover the stems in the summer. After about five years it began to look comfortable and to grow more strongly.
I wonder whether it would be worth persevering in a colder climate as well?

Is it rootstock? like hybrid tea
or not need ?

'Ragged Robin' was certainly used as a rootstock in warm and dryish climates.

"....or not need?"
Sorry I don't understand your question.

Thank you.

If I make a cutting bud(Vegetative) from 'Ragged Robin'
Without rootstock
Is that okay?

hybrid tea must to be rootstock
Otherwise they are weak....

I grow 'Ragged Robin' on its own roots on a heavy acid soil. I know of a lady who also grows it on its own roots on sandy soil. Both plants took some years to settle in. The sandy soil one suffered sunburn for a while there but now delights the owner. My heavy soil one gives promise but not much else at the moment although I do see spring blooms.

שלום מדרום-קליפורניה,

באמת זה לא נכון שה"הייבריד תה" לא יתפתח בסדר בשורשים שלהם. חוץ משניים או שלושה, כל הוורדים שלי מגדלים בשורשים שלהם.

The Florist, 1: 37 (1848)
Mr. Rivers
At present I know of only one other variety equal to the above as a Christmas Rose, the Hybrid Perpetual, Comte d'Eu: this as a border Rose is superior to Gloire de Rosamène, its flowers are more double, of a finer shape, and nearly as brilliant in colour; it forms a dwarf bush, and may have the same treatment as the above; it will not, however, give so abundant a crop of winter flowers. In fact, at present I know of no Rose equal to Gloire de Rosamène for blooming in winter. In addition to this valuable quality, I had almost forgotten to add that its flowers, although almost odourless under the bright sun of June, in winter exhale a delicate and agreeable perfume.
