Cool. I must email T4R again and see if they managed to get one going for this year. The previous year's budding season was a disaster for them. Too much heat and not enough rain.

Let me know if you need cuttings.
It's interesting that you say T4Roses had a terrible budding season last year and put it down to heat and dryness. Something similar happened here - an unprecedented failure with many of the roses budded in January. In this case, the nursery people were scratching heads and ended up assuming it must have had something to do with the unusual, and unusually heavy, rain at that time.

Speaking of cuttings: what have you found is the best way to get the buggers going? Method, time of year, etc.

That 'Restless' that I rescued when it blew off its rootstock is still going, but I haven't had any luck striking other roses so I must be doing something wrong.

On a non-Tea note: I'm going to have to try 'Aotearoa' as cuttings, because I'm not having much joy with it on multiflora. The rootstock is suckering like crazy and is very rampant if I take my eyes off it for a while, while the scion is healthy enough but not keeping up.

Funnily enough, this is the only one that is doing this. Rootstocks under the rest of the roses are behaving just fine. Beats me why.

Have a look at
I do best with the doggybag (ziplock bag) method when I'm likely to get 6 weeks of warm weather.
In May in the southern states, in-ground is usually considered the best option (I don't like it because digging them up over a year later can be very hard work). If you're in the subtropics, you may get away with the doggybag method even this late in the year. A few modifications: the kittylitter formula has apparently changed, and I can't find a suitable replacement, so I'm using Perlite as an aerator instead. If you use ziplock bags with a double zip, they may be re-usable.

Might this be Sunbright, released by J&P in 84? The pics look similar with that white-cream edge.

Sunbright is a possibility I am still considering. There is something that made me hesitate, but I am still comparing.

Sunbright is thorny, hates cold or wet winters, and is stiffer.

Yes, it definitely is not Sunblest. I grow most of the yellows in my garden and have compared them in detail. This is a mystery!

Do you have any photos of your "bluish pink" sport of 'Scabrosa'? I really love lilac/lavender/mauve colors and I love rugosas, so that sounds like a real winning combination!
