China Roses
W. L. Carter
R. chinensis mutabilis to which Mr. Marriott refers is identical with the Tipo Ideale and R. mutabilis I mentioned in my article. Another of its synonyms is R. turkestanica, although its association with Turkestan is obscure. I believe very little is known of its history. The late E. A. Bunyard said a drawing of it by Redouts was in the Jardin des Plantes in Paris, which gives it well over a century. Apart from that, I cannot recall any early reference to this undeniably attractive rose. It has been suggested that Tipo Ideale is of Italian origin, and it is a fact that around the beginning of last century Villaresi, who was superintendent of the Archducal gardens at Monza in Northern Italy, was much interested in China roses, and raised about two dozen new varieties. With me it was not nearly so hardy as other China roses this winter and was badly cut, although the bushes have made fair new growth during the spring and summer.

Dermalogica Passion DELludfra (N) An exceptional rose with incredibly big, glossy leaves, long straight stems and huge, full petalled blooms with an exuberant fragrance. An individual plant will make a statement, so much more when planted in groups or rows. ‘Dermalogica’ is passionate about healing skin and is driven by education and research and so deserves a rose that speaks its language.

Born-2-Care KORakucap. A modern antique-looking rose producing long stems with mostly three medium sized, firm petalled blooms incurved in the centre displaying the nostalgic shape of the olden days. The colouring is a blend of silver and pink. They make superb cut owers. The bush grows rigidly upright and mixes well in beds of hybrid tea roses.

Addo Heritage POUdotage Green-pink guard petals protect round buds which unfold into a symmetrical egg shaped bloom; coral pink intensifies as bloom exposes layers of narrow petals until open rosette shape of an old fashioned rose is reached. Huge open blooms will outlast all other cut roses; vigorous, tall, loosely spreading shrub; long stemmed blooms; plant as a hedge.

March 2011 marked the 40th anniversary of Ludwig’s Roses and to celebrate it we have selected a rose to commemorate our four decades of rose growing. At a brunch held for the editors of magazines and newspapers who have supported us through the years, they suggested the name ‘Our Anniversary’ and we thought that was a really good name!
‘Our Anniversary’ is an Eco-Chic disease resistant rose with large, full, strong pink blooms in the old fashioned shape of our Antico Moderno rose range. The flowers are fragrant and are carried on nice pickable stems. They last well in the vase as well as on the bush. It is particularly suitable for growing in a container because of its spreading, arching growth.
