Grown in Mississippi around 20 years ago, my mom and I purchased a Lady-X rose from a local Greers grocery store. My mom wasn't a fan of washed out, pale lavender color, but I thought it was pretty in a delicate way. As noted by others, the petals were thin and had a tendency to burn on the edges. The plant was not a pretty plant, as ours always grew unevenly. However, Lady-X would produce some of the most beautiful, high-centered blooms. In the spring and fall especially, the bush could be counted on for some classically beautiful roses in a unique color.

I enjoyed the comments in 'Sterling Silver' so much that I thought I might have to re-look at the identification of one of my foundlings. I had come to the conclusion that my rose was 'Lady X' and I have put a few more references on for this rose. There are three different parentages that I have found on a quick search:
1969: Seedling x 'Simone'
1969: (‘Pigatelle’ x Tristesse) x (‘Prelude’ x ‘Simone’)
2003: (‘Pigalle’ x Tristeza’) x ‘Prélude’.

I believe the 1986 reference to “very thorny” might be incorrect as almost all other references call it “almost thornless”.

Now I need to look closely at 'Blue Nile', but that exercise will be a few weeks off now.

Lady X is not for hot conditions. As beautiful as she is, her petals are like tissue paper and burns in the sun very easily. Must be watched for rust and requires winter protection in Zone 6. Still, I will not be without her ephemeral beauty and a late season bloom flush is amazing.

I had to shovel prune my Lady X as she is a rust magnet. She is the first to be diseased and spreads it to others down wind. Too bad as the flowers are beautiful.
