Not a showy rose, but one of the best in my garden. It makes a lovely, though very large, shrub. It has reached 7' high and 12' wide, and still seems to be going. Unlike most Teas I have, it is clothed to the ground, being arching. The shrub in Spring, is particularly lovely, with a tapestry of darkish green and russet leaves, dotted with, pale yellow and clotted cream blooms that turn pink with warmth.

I have derived great pleasure from breeding this rose and giving it to DR Graham 'A E Coupland's' widow Robyn.
The seed parent is 'CHEWfragbabe' also known as 'Brindabella Bouquet'. The unknown found pollen parent resembled 'Roundelay' . This is a very healthy rose suitable for no spray gardens

Looks very nice.

May I double check that parentage please Bruce? The 2016 reference shows the registered parentage as being the reverse.

Hi Patricia, the seed parent is 'CHEWfragbabe' or 'Brindabella Bouquet' , The pollen parent is a found HT that looks very much like Roundelay. " Roundelay" ? never produced a hip during the 3 years I grew it.

Robyn Coupland visited our property, liked the rose so much I gifted it to her.

Seedlings of Silver Jubilee tend to be dense and bushy. But not particularly disease resistant.

Silver Jubilee does well here in zone 9B in a no spray garden. It shows no tendency toward disease.
Reply #2 of 11 posted 2 days ago by steve fritz
Which varieties of roses do you grow there that appear free of disease? And how long have they been in place?
Roses often do not show diseases until they have been in the same spot in the garden for 2 or 3 years. I think the pathogens need to get established in the soil around them.

I have over 3000 rose plants of all kinds. Most of the roses are HT (many of which are Florist Roses) and FL. The weather here is 90 to over 100 degrees for most of the summer. The only time I have any sign of fungus in my garden is in the spring. When it gets hot, the leaves affected fall off and new growth appears fungus free. All of the roses in the main garden have been there more than 10 year. When I first planted my garden, I used fungicides. Then one year I didn't spray and the roses did better than ever. I now have a spray free garden except for the Fusilade II that I spray to prevent grasses and a pre-emergent that we spray once in the winter.

It appears you live in southern California. Here in North Carolina the air much more humid and rain a problem. We had 2 hurricanes blow through there this year and had a stretch of heavy rain seven days in a row.

Fungus was a problem for us.

3000 roses it a lot. How did you acquire so many??

I looked at some of your photos. Gypsy Curiosa for example.

Do you have this rose growing in your garden?

Do you have a computerized list of the roses in your possession?

If so, I'd be interested in checking it out.

But if it not already compiled I can't imagine trying to run down the names of so many roses.

I acquired so many because I have been growing roses for a long time----and I had a lot of great resources for these roses. Unfortunately many of these resources no longer exist. I got a lot of florist roses from Carlton's ---and a lot of great and hard to find roses from Cliff Orent's Eurodesert Roses and Vintage Roses. Yes I do have Gypsy Curiosa and Blue Curiosa---Which is quite lovely too. HMF has a list of my roses.
A good source for hard to find roses now is the CCRS auction. I bid online ---and they ship them to me.
I live in the San Francisco Bay area---inland about 40 miles. It is a very hot and mild climate with low humidity most of the time.

This is the first time I have ever heard of the CCRS auction.

I live in North Carolina.

What is the standard bid for these roses??

What is a normal price range??

I reviewed the list and there are a few I'd like to have
Reply #10 of 11 posted today by jmile
From past experience they range anywhere. I know that is no help, but I just bid what I think that it is worth to me and wait to see what it is worth to someone else. The online rep only goes up to your bid. If you bid $30 and the other top bid is $20, You only pay a $1 more at $21. If I am wrong, please someone correct me.

OK thanks.

I put in a bid for a rose and I suppose I'll hear if I won by the end of the month.

Are you bidding on any?
