This file needs to be merged with the real Alpengruss, or Alpengruß. The dots on the "u" are just a typo apparently commonly made.

Sorry, I don't understand. What real Alpengruss?

I understand, from what Puns writes, that Alpengruss/Alpengruß IS the real name for this rose. When the plant-name was in plural, it would be Alpengrüsse, with the two dots on the "u".
I called Noack and they asked me to send an email about this, so I did so.
See, how they will react.
Mr. Charles Quest Ritson already wrote about this issue. See comments for this rose.

Ah yes, thanks Jay-Jay for making it clear. I just assumed HMF to have another file for Alpengruß or Alpengruss based on the previous comments. I should have searched first. Sorry.

We'll just have to wait and see, how the company Noack reacts.
And if the admin. allows to correct the name.

No reaction at all (until now) from Noack, after I wrote them this message at 2017-11-9:

"Guten Morgen,
Es läuft eine Diskussion auf die Rosenwebseite Help Me Find, ob die Die Name einer (in der Vergangenheit von Werner Noack gezüchteten) Rose sich schreibt als:
- A: 'Alpengrüss'
- B: 'Alpengruss'
- C: 'Alpengruß'
Der link zu dieser Diskussion ist:
Sehen Sie bitte auch, was Herr Charles Quest Ritson schrieb.
Gerne Ihre Reaktion... vielleicht am besten auf die Webseite selber?

Mit freundlichem Gruß, ......."

I enclosed name, telephone-number and email-address.

Is this Noack's 'Alpengruss' of 1974? If so, I have some pictures that I would like to upload. But first you will have to add a fuller description. Please could you let me know?

Added as much as I can find. Your photos will be welcome

'Alpengrüss' is wrong and makes no sense.
It is correctly 'Alpengruß'

Reply #3 of 5 posted 17 JUL 15 by Charles Quest-Ritson
Agreed, but for an English-speaking website it would be best described as 'Alpengruss'. CQ-R.

I have now uploaded a couple of pictures. Would it be a good idea, now, to close this correspondence please? It seems to have run its course. CQ-R.

Bernard - I tried adding Alpengruß as a synonym but the database said it was already listed.

Charles - Comments are never actually "closed". One may reply to a comment added years ago if more data comes to light on the subject in question.
I like to start my day with a coffee and the Q and A forum (under RESOURCES in the left hand column). All recent comments and questions are there for the world to see and replies are often generated sharing insights and expertise.

Later edit. NEW/RECENT > REVIEWS/COMMENTS is an easier way to access the daily Q and A forum.
