Rosa roxburghii: the species, its forms and hybrids
Graham Stuart Thomas
During his experimental work with the parentage of roses at Cambridge in the second quarter of this century, Dr C.C. Hurst raised seedlings of this cross [micrugosa], one of which was named R. x micrugosa 'Alba'. Apart from being of rather more upright habit, it is in other respects a replica of the original but of important garden value because the white flowers are produced not only at midsummer, but onwards throughout the growing season. They are, moreover, very fragrant. This might prove to to be a fertile parent and thus bring both species into today's hybrids. They would be very hardy.

I won so many awards with this rose. I'm not even fond of minis, but the color is super cool, and it produces a lot of tiny "florist roses". The color also looked really good underneath the Lloyd Center skyroof, that reflects light into the ice arena where the roses are shown. It does blackspot. But there really is no such thing as a perfect garden specimen in this rare color range. It grows better than many minis from that era, which either lacked vigor, flopped on the ground, or were insanely huge.

When you open the BUY FROM tab, make sure United States is shown, and not other countries.

Having grown this rose for only 11 months now, I am very pleased with it. It has beautiful growth habit, lots of foliage (the description says "medium green" but to my eye it's darker, with bronze new growth and stems that stay a mahogany color - most attractive) and bushy habit. It does send out some longer shoots, but where I have it planted it is not an "octopus". Its flowers are very fragrant and produced with regularity. After the experience of these past 11 months - I liked Young Lycidas so much that I ordered more bare root plants to put in this season as well. A very nice rose.

Still doing well? I bought a Barbara Streisand own root hybrid tea for the lovely purple color and fragrance but in the photos on here some look more silvery than I like. Wondering if I should gift it to someone and plant Young Lycidas in that spot (Bright morning and afternoon sun but full shade from about 2 pm onward in my warm zone 10 Pasadena garden.

Barbra Streisand as own-root gives me a hard-time in hot & dry weather. The color is dull-gray-purple. Leaves fried in full-sun at mid 80 F. So I moved Barbra to 4 hours of morning sun .. bloomed well with tons of acidic rain & flash flood. Then we got into hot & dry and I watered with my alkaline-tap water for only 4 days, and Barbra immediately broke out in blackspot (so wimpy as own-root). In contrast, folks report about Young Lycidas: 1) good for the vase 2) can take full-sun 3) leaves are similar to Sharifa Asma, and Sharifa Asma behaves well in hot & dry as own-root for me.

How big is it in your garden? I have a small spot that I could fit a smallish rose in (3x3 ideally but 4x4 could work) and I know that Austins are notorious for growing to gargantuan proportions in Southern California. Does she stay petite or perhaps pruning to keep her under control?

I'd say it would be easily maintainable at 4 x 4 or even smaller. At least that's been the experience here at the abbey.
