This is a tough one over summer. Has held foliage better than most.

Not a lot of growth yet. It seems to want to flower a lot more than is good for it at this stage, and I've been letting it largely do its own thing. Probably should have disbudded it for the first year.

Lady Roberts--An elegant new Hardy Tea Rose just recently imported, has proved a most beautiful and valuable variety of excellent form and substance, reddish apricot passing to deep coppery red with orange shading, a good healthy grower and profuse bloomer.

I wonder if any of you Australians who are familiar with Lady Roberts has an opportunity to study the rose sold by Vintage Gardens as "Mme Charles." The bloom color seems close to me, apricot, very floriferous, handsome plant, well-armed with prickles.

Cass - is this the rose VG say they received as "Comtesse Riza du Parc"?
If so, it is the same as what we have as "Not Comtesse Riza du Parc".
The main distinguishing features are the tendency to carry many prickles - often right up to the bracts - and the way it sets lots of big hips if not dead headed. It also has a lovely bud that often shows the slightest asymmetry when you look at it side-on.

Yes, that's the one, Billy. Thanks.

It's not the same as Anna Olivier/ Lady Roberts - but that rose does seem to be the same as one of the roses known as 'Dr Grill' in Europe and resembles early portraits of Dr Grill.
