I have derived great pleasure from breeding this rose and giving it to DR Graham 'A E Coupland's' widow Robyn.
The seed parent is 'CHEWfragbabe' also known as 'Brindabella Bouquet'. The unknown found pollen parent resembled 'Roundelay' . This is a very healthy rose suitable for no spray gardens

May I double check that parentage please Bruce? The 2016 reference shows the registered parentage as being the reverse.

Hi Patricia, the seed parent is 'CHEWfragbabe' or 'Brindabella Bouquet' , The pollen parent is a found HT that looks very much like Roundelay. " Roundelay" ? never produced a hip during the 3 years I grew it.

Robyn Coupland visited our property, liked the rose so much I gifted it to her.

Cute flower with obvious mossing.
I would say the fragrance doesn't make me think of lemon, not typical moss scent but also not lemon.

I have had this rose for at least 6 years. It was one of the original regular roses I purchased as I used to be strictly into minis. It has been growing in a partially shady area (shade tolerant) with very little care. I am not on a strict fertilizing schedule and Honey Bouquet just carries on as a very healthy rose regardless. Very pest resistant (aphids and earwigs seem to ignore). Honey Bouquet can be surrounded by other plants suffering from rust and blackspot and for whatever reason, she is impervious. Blooms are generous in a brightly delicious butter with more of a golden honey centre. Foliage is thick and nice dark green. Fragrance is strong and delightful. Makes an excellent cut rose, easily lasting a week or more. It is BY FAR one of my all-time favourites. (One of Zary's best, I think).

Thank you for your review of Honey Bouquet. It's very helpful to hear of people's experiences with a particular rose. This one is going on the "wish list". I don't know where I'd put it at this time, but we'll see...

Got it this year and it just had it's first bloom today so may be a bit premature but it does seem the BS resistance is pretty high here as it's around quite a lot of it and unaffected (so far anyway).

It's interesting this rose is rated excellent for disease resistance...it's not, at least not here, around half the plant is covered in blackspot.

Having said that, the plant is a bit bigger than the listed size, more 1m by 1m, fairly common for here in Australia though.
