I received our Marie Daly as a transplant last spring, even though we had a much warmer than normal winter in 2011, Marie Daly lost only a few leaves, and even in the warmest part of the winter-when it was in the 80F range, we had a bloom or two.

The rose is very healthy even in hot humid conditions, or cool humid conditions, it did show a slight bit of blackspot, but I just I just hosed the plant off, and then drier sunnier weather conditons took care of the rest. It does have a few prickles underneath some of the leaves, but I would say it is thornless. In cooler weather the blooms look more like miniature hybrid tea blooms, wonderful fragrance, it has a nice tidy habit, and looks good by the kitchen door.

This rose lost about 2/3 of it's canes in the Winter of 2013, "the coldest ever", really a zone 4b. We have had very little snow, and lots of cold wind.

Grntrz5: My Marie Daly died one winter .. it was in wet clay. Since Marie Daly is an Earth Kind-drought tolerant rose, I suspect it prefers loamier soil. I'm ordering Marie Daly again, and would like to know what's the best soil to ensure zone 5a winter survival. Is your soil sandy, loamy, or clay? Thank you.

Previous years I private-messaged a zone 5b person, she also reported Marie Daly dying through her winter. And a friend of my daughter also said her Marie Pavie survived our zone 5a winter, but Mary Daly died through our -20 F winter.

From a salvia site,

Salvia, Henry Duelberg
Greg Grant

"One of this year's promotions, the Duelberg sage (Salvia 'Henry Duelberg') happens to be a plant that I found and introduced to the Texas nursery trade. I'm a decent plant breeder but my forte seems to be stumbling across improved plants in unlikely places. For instance, the Gold Star esperanza came from a yard in an impoverished neighborhood in San Antonio. The Marie Daly rose was a sport in my mom's backyard in the Pineywoods of East Texas. And the VIP petunia came from a flower bed in front of a pay toilet in Stuttgart, Germany!"

Last year I purchased Marie Daly (own root) from a nursery that is now no longer in business. It has been blooming continuously for 3 months now and has healthy foliage. My question is regarding the color of the blooms. The blooms (and buds) on my plant are white. When I look on the web, the blooms are pink. Does anyone who grows Marie Daly see white blooms and buds?

Could your plant have been mislabeled and be in fact a Marie Pavie? Marie Daley is a sport of Marie Pavie, which is white/very light pink.

Thanks for the input. I too concluded that it was Mare Pavie as the rose had no thorns and looked exactly like my 7 Marie Pavies.

Marie Daly came through an average 6a winter (with lows bottoming out at -3) with minimal dieback.
