We are shown as selling this rose as "Belfield". Although we sell "Belfield" we consider the R. Indica Semperflorens ex Fineschi/Cavriglia as being a better example

So this rose blooms in flushes. So far, it had a heavy bloom at the beginning of spring, now almost summer and no repeat yet? Is this normal? Is the repeat not til autumn? It might just be settling in (it's not putting on new growth either), just trying to figure out if this is normal for it or not.

Hello Plazbo,
'Baby Faurax' does indeed flower in flushes right through until the first frosts in autumn, in fact I don't think there was a time from May to October when there wasn't a bloom open somewhere on the plant.

I guess mines just settling in then given the lack of blooms after the early spring bloom.

My garden is cool and damp during the summer maybe the growing conditions are different to yours, my 'Baby Faurax' also suffers from die back each winter. Patricia grows it, maybe her experience would be in a climate more appropriate to yours.

I have a couple of plants in my acid soil heavy loam. But they are both miniscule. However I do grow it well in a verandah pot where it is watered and fed well with chopped lucerne hay and sheep manure. About twice a year I add about a quarter of a teaspoon of sulphate of potash to the pot. I don't really deadhead it as I am seeking the seeds but am quite sure 'Baby Faurax' would repeat if I did. I get a huge amount of enjoyment out of growing a few seeds each year and they are all, so far, making small shrubs. Last year the rosella parrots heard me thinking that I must pick that wonderful crop of seeds. Later I swept up their crumbs and named the only two I got up 'Baby Parrot Pick' and 'Baby Parrot Reject'. I'll add some photos.

I like the Baby Tooth best of all.

My plant is about 75cm high, my soil is well drained acid loam. Each shoot that it throws up has flower buds which is typical of these dwarf sports. Multiflora hybrids like 'Veilchenblau' and 'Bleu Magenta', to which it is related, grow very well in my cool damp climate too.

I am quite sure that this is the same rose grown elsewhere under the name " Annapurna".

Unless there is some plant mislabelled as Annapurna somewhere out there, I'm not convinced. The Annapurnas I saw were of the purest white at a time when lots of other white or light pink roses in that park had pink flecks on the petals from the rain. Magnificent blooms, the most impressive ones in the huge park. Spotless, brilliant. I was so thrilled.

The blooms of 'Coeur de Neige' in my garden glow with the purest white in the midday sun. On Delbard's French website , " Les Rosiers Delbard" there are only three white roses: Annapurna (Dorblan) ,Grand Nord (Delgrard) and Sweet Love (Harmisty).

Many rose breeders introduce roses which are specifically for a different part of the world. There are Delbard roses which can be found only in Japan, for example. It is definitely not 'Annapurna', as the breeder code is distinct. If it is a regional variety, it would not be on the Delbard site. Same applies to breeders like Kordes, Tantau and Meilland.

I could have sworn I had responded to Evesmos' initial comment.

Jedmar, the Delbard website (for me) gave only the same three white roses as Evosmos has mentioned:
Annapurna (Dorblan) ,Grand Nord (Delgrard) and Sweet Love (Harmisty).

The linky you have quoted is not the Delbard site, but the Australian nursery Rankins Roses, the agent for Delbard roses. The only code name I could find is contained in the HMF main page linky for Diana Sargeant's Silkies Rose Farm & Rosesalesonline in Clonbinane, Victoria, Australia.

You're not mad, Patricia, I read your comment, too. It appeared in the same instant as my comment above. Maybe that's why it does not show up now?

Maybe that is the answer. Thanks anyway Puns 'n' Roses - am glad you responded.
There is a lot of renaming that goes on in Australia, but I think that might be the case for many countries.
