Help, my rose bush looks unhappy. Has several new buds, but only opening 1/2 way and then turns brown. It has lots of water and I put the Rose granules down. They smell really good, but I"m afraid it might be dieing. Any suggestions.

There is a new line of Kordes Roses being offered by Palatine and Northland Rosarium. These roses are not listed anywhere. Not on Koreds website, help me find, google, ect. In conversations with both nurseries neither can supply plant info. Carol at Northland contacted her suppier who was unable to help. Carol was kind enough to offer 4 Flower Circus varieties free of charge as test plants to gather information on them. I was curious about diease resistance, possible balling of many petaled rose, ect. The only info found was that a sister company in USA working with Kordes may be growing them for release in states to compete with Radlers Knock Outs ect. Would anyone know of these roses. Thankyou so much Pat W

Hi, Pat W.
Flower Circus Roses can be viewed on the Kordes Rosen website in German. There are about 25 varieties. They are not Standard roses, however. This is the Kordes line of patio roses for growing in pots. I'm not sure they compete with Knock Out. They are described as "vigorous" and "compact" and are shown growing in about 7 gallon containers.

They will be added to HMF in the next day or so. Thanks for pointing them out!

Hi Andrew. I am not sure what the average lifespan of a rose is, I think it depends on the class of rose. According to Guinness Book of Records, the world's oldest rose is in Tombstone AZ. It is a Lady Banksiae which is 122 years old and 8600 sq feet. I personally have a Rosa Wichuraiana which is over 30 years. Jody

My father-in-law has a Peace and Mr. Lincoln which are nearly fifty years old. Given good growing conditions, and nothing terrible befalling them (severe cold, disease, etc) I think 10-20 years is not uncommon. I've got a couple which are 13 years old and going strong, and they've been moved all over creation as I've moved three times.

I've documented a rose that is about 100 years old, planted in the garden of a family home that remains in the same family. The plant is enormous, at least 15 feet wide and 12 feet tall, the variety we call 'Le VĂ©suve.'
