Modern Roses 12 shows both Registered Name and Exhibition Name as Fellemberg with Fellenberg as a synonym.

They too, like all the others for umpteen decades, have chopped and changed their minds over this one. Not only the name, but the class as well. I have put my second plant out into some sunlight and it will be interesting to watch. At this stage I think it is closer to Noisette, than China

I have never seen it in person, but it looks like china and synstylae (which noisettes are, as well). But I don't think it is moschata like noisettes, or if it is, it's diluted. This one is a real mystery.

I wonder if it is something like ...(multiflora type x tea type) x old blush type.

I believe there are various clones or even roses in commerce under the 'Fellemberg' name. The name comes from Philipp Emanuel von Fellenberg (1771-1844), renowned Swiss agronomist and educationalist. However, the French insisted on calling him Fellemberg.

I feel the pain. I like saying y'all. I'm not even Southern :D

No, I'm kidding. I did see the argument about the name. I figured there were mixed clones. Business as usual with the old cultivars.

I wonder which clone was tested as triploid. Maybe a little China/Bourbon snuck in for a quicky somewhere along the lineage.

The Swiss gentle man Fellenburg as that is the correct sow spelling of his name and that of this rose was a Swiss of German extraction. This rose is a creation of his without any doubt.

Ah, you're the same as me - don't touch-type, and sometimes forget to check what has appeared on the screen when we've finished.

I stand by what I said earlier about Mr. Fellenburg . In German burg is never spelt with an e. It is always spelt burg which means hill or mountain Patricia. This mistake has bean around for along time and unless one has a linguistic or philogical background one doesn't appreciate the subtle nuances of any given language or its spelling. There are spellings of words which have crept into English here and in the us and Canada which though popular still make them silly or theoretically incorrect ie; The american use of dove instead of dived for the past tense of diving.
I once mentioned the spelling of Fellemburg to David Euston.He like me grew up in South Australia surrounded by people of German extraction. He accepted like me that the correct spelling for fellemburg is with the u and not eunles Herr Fellemburg was English which he certainly wasn't.

I wonder if the rose was named after:
There was a prune in the Riverland in the 1920s 'Fellemberg' according to TROVE

There are quite a few Germanic words spelt e-r-g, Battenberg for example. Burg = Castle, Berg = Mountain.

Aussie Rose Lover - I wonder if you wouldn't mind using the EDIT facility to correct the incorrect spellings in your postings.

There are 60 or so references to this rose dating back to 1836, all using the berg spelling. The only point of contention is that whether the name was spelt with an N or a M.

In the digitised copies available online of the German periodical Rosenzeitung there are 22 references to Fellemberg, only one to Fellenberg and none at all to either Fellenburg or Fellemburg.

Like Professor Higgins said, we Americans haven't spoken English in years.
