A couple of visiting rosarians from the US don't think "B L Sydney Linton" is Paul Neyron. Wrong colour, opens too flat. I note too that Paul Neyron has descendants as seed parent, but I haven't seen viable hips on my "B L S L".

Then they are in accord with Hillary who has always dismissed PN as an identity.

Has Hillary publicised her concerns? - I might have missed a reference.

No - you haven't missed a reference Patricia. Hillary doesn't have a plant of "B.L. Sydney Linton" and I'm referring to informal conversations we've had standing next to my plant.

Margaret – Seven seed descendants from 1869-2018. That is not a lot. I haven’t seen any hips at all (that I recall) on my HP’s. ‘Paul Neyron’ was mentioned as having a flat form in a 1936 reference.

Billy – thank you. My “Sydney Linton” died by 2015. I sent you up an own-root plant in Nov 5, 2004 and presumably this is the one you are now growing. My ‘Paul Neyron’ (currently quite sick) came from Zephyr Brook 1-5 and undoubtedly Hillary will know this rose well. In peak busy season here, I am most unwilling to relook at “Sydney Linton” as we discussed it ad infinitum in 2003-2006. It is probably not right that “Sydney Linton” and Paul Neyron’ are in the same file, but it would take a lot of untangling to separate them.

Yes - you are right - The "B.L. Sydney Linton" growing here is the one you sent up (is it that long ago?)
HPs are not really happy here. I think they are more comfortable in places where they get at least a bit of frost in the winter and not so much heat in the summer, so it has always looked a bit tenuous. A very modest plant and the amount of spent wood equalling the amount of new wood each year. But when it blooms in a mild spring, it is a most lovely thing and I will always remember David Ruston's magnificent and deceptively simple arrangement of it in its home town at the Hay Conference in 2003.
'Dr Hogg' is the only other HP that has survived here. Even' Frau Karl Druschki' lost the will to keep trying last year.

"Bishop's Lodge Sydney Linton" doesn't appear to set viable hips in my garden.

Is this rose shade-tolerant?

Hi Jay-Jay: Paul Neyron prefers some shade if your summer is hot and humid like mine. Paul Neyron is notorious for blackspots and diseases. I bought him as OWN-ROOT in March to do experiments: 1) in alkaline clay soil with alfalfa meal: lots of blooms 2) watered with acidic rain water, he broke out in blackspots 3) moved him to clay soil made acidic with peatmoss, he had the worse blackspots 4) moved him to Ball's potting soil with 55% composted fine pine bark with lime, Paul Neyron is 100% clean after 2 weeks of rain, 70% humidity and hot weather. The tannin in the composted pine acts as fungicide, plus lime is a natural fungicide. He's healthy at last.

Fascinating. No wonder why he spots badly here...

Mine died after a few years. The plant was small and grafted, when I got it and in a very cold winter it froze back. It started all over, but didn't thrive at all at that shady spot... except for Black-spot!

My Paul Neyron died as own-root after a few winters. Roots are so wimpy that it can't go deep enough for my zone 5a winter survival. La Reine smells better and is more healthy & winter-hardy.
