In January my daughter and I went to order our species bulbs from Glenbrook Bulb Farm. Rod Barwick took us to see an old rose which he said had been growing in Claremont for at least 70 years. His mother remembered it growing over the fence as she passed along the road to school when she was six years old. He thought it must have been a newish rose then as “The Rusts had everything – they were rich, you know!” (A wonderful childhood memory which I am sure the Rusts would love; they are still around.)
So we worked out that allowing for importation and a few inaccuracies of memory we were looking for something around the turn of the century up to 1920. I took home a couple of flowers of what we agreed to call “Rust’s Rose” pro tem. And I started going through the books looking for an apricot climber of the right vintage. With the help of other rosarians we came up with some possibilities but nothing really fitted. We went back to pick up the bulbs and get cuttings of this delicious rose with its delicate perfume. This time two more flowers were given and immediately upon opening Peter Beales’ Classic Roses there was a portrait of one of these roses! As the rose opened the more it looked like Mme Jules Gravereaux!
This rose was introduced by Soupert and Notting in 1901. ‘Reve d’Or’ x Vicountess Folkestone. Peter Beales description fits perfectly and it is obviously quite hardy in this part of Tasmania as its provenance shows.
I would that all our searches could have such a speedy conclusion.
