I recently asked help in deciding between Margo Koster and Boscobel roses. I'm so thankful to find this forum and I will tell you why. Before posing this ? on help me find, I had contacted a rosarian that was listed online. Her response was "simply choose a rose you like, it's trial and error and we learn from our mistakes". I needed some direction and I'm so thankful for the replies I got from this forum. You gave me details and bonefided experience. Your the real rosarians!

To help a little further, Charles and Brigid Quest-Ritson's book The Royal Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Roses, page 119 has a very good entry on some of the Koster roses including 'Anneke Koster', 'Dick Koster', 'Margo Koster', 'Morsdag', 'Vatertag', 'Orange Morsdag'. They are mostly fairly similar, only a variation in colour.

I certainly will look it up, I've gotten so interested in Koster and I've googled all I can find. Thank you!
Update; This must be the motherlode encyclopedia on roses. I see it for sale (yikes) but don't think I can be privy to peek inside lol. Maybe somehow I can get access through a library. Worth a try, cause I know it's intriguing.

They bred some very good Rhododendrons too.
