We are shown as selling this rose as "Belfield". Although we sell "Belfield" we consider the R. Indica Semperflorens ex Fineschi/Cavriglia as being a better example

So this rose blooms in flushes. So far, it had a heavy bloom at the beginning of spring, now almost summer and no repeat yet? Is this normal? Is the repeat not til autumn? It might just be settling in (it's not putting on new growth either), just trying to figure out if this is normal for it or not.

Hello Plazbo,
'Baby Faurax' does indeed flower in flushes right through until the first frosts in autumn, in fact I don't think there was a time from May to October when there wasn't a bloom open somewhere on the plant.

I guess mines just settling in then given the lack of blooms after the early spring bloom.

My garden is cool and damp during the summer maybe the growing conditions are different to yours, my 'Baby Faurax' also suffers from die back each winter. Patricia grows it, maybe her experience would be in a climate more appropriate to yours.

I have a couple of plants in my acid soil heavy loam. But they are both miniscule. However I do grow it well in a verandah pot where it is watered and fed well with chopped lucerne hay and sheep manure. About twice a year I add about a quarter of a teaspoon of sulphate of potash to the pot. I don't really deadhead it as I am seeking the seeds but am quite sure 'Baby Faurax' would repeat if I did. I get a huge amount of enjoyment out of growing a few seeds each year and they are all, so far, making small shrubs. Last year the rosella parrots heard me thinking that I must pick that wonderful crop of seeds. Later I swept up their crumbs and named the only two I got up 'Baby Parrot Pick' and 'Baby Parrot Reject'. I'll add some photos.

My plant is about 75cm high, my soil is well drained acid loam. Each shoot that it throws up has flower buds which is typical of these dwarf sports. Multiflora hybrids like 'Veilchenblau' and 'Bleu Magenta', to which it is related, grow very well in my cool damp climate too.
