Hello everyone!

Does anybody have any picture/ drawing of the long lost sports of ‘Tzigane’: ‘GOLDEN TZIGANE’, 'VALERIE BOUGHEY’, 'NELL GWYN’, 'DUNTON GOLD’ and ‘RITA JACKSON’?

I have been looking for them everywhere but could not find anything so far.
Thanks in advane for any contribution!

Mariano (Buenos Aires, Argentina).

Hello Mariano,
I have had a fairly decent search for any photos, but found nothing. However, I have added the few references that cropped up in my search. I can't help noting that four of these roses originated in the U.K., and the fifth,'Rita Jackson', was a sport from Western Australia. It is most unlikely that 'Rita Jackson' ever made it to Argentina.

Hello Patricia,

Thank you so much for your reply, your interest and your always valuable contributions. I think we have already been in touch previously (probably a couple of years ago) here and by e-mail, regarding HTs 'Chantré', and 'Admiral Dewey', but I have been absent for several reasons, but now I think I will start to participate here quite more often, once again.
I have seen there is a single picture of 'Nell Gwyn' by "AmyRoses" (EB), but after contacting him, he told me this morning it is the only picture he could manage to take in the "Roseraie de la Ville de Montauban", unfortunately.

Thank you, once again and we stay in touch.

p/s: btw, I have contacted Ross Roses this afternoon regarding 'Pink Perfecta' (A. Ross & Son/Ross Roses (Australia, 1962)). Are you familiar with this rose or this nursery in Australia? As far as I know it is said to be the Australian form of 'Kordes Perfecta Superior'.

Tropicana is still loaded in blooms after an extended period of 110 temperatures (not including the heat index). I don't know if it's the weather because she's new here, but she's been a lovely shade of peach, rather than the orange I see in so many pictures. Completely clean foliage and growing like a weed. Fragrant Cloud beside her does have a stronger fragrance and less fading, but a significantly smaller number of blooms

Wow, what a glorious picture Andrew! I adore those shades!

Thanks Lavenderlace, they both flower at exactly the same time, but I've quite a job ahead in a few weeks cutting them back and tying the new canes in.

I can't say that I envy the headheading chores ahead of you either but it certainly looks worth it!

Pruned, 22/7/18. All set for next year now, just a quick extra tying-in in autumn and that's it.
