Does anybody know if Peggy Martin has found her way to Europe? I'm also wondering if she's some sort of Noisette.

Is there any reason why "Peggy Martin" has not been merged with 'Pinkie Cl.'?

Do we have conclusive proof they are the same? At least one HMF guest growing both does not think so. Other opinions are welcome.

They are not the same rose. Really. Order one each from Antique Rose Emporium. Plant them, and you will see the difference eventually, if not right away.

I've also grown both and agree that they are quite different. To a casual observer, they may seem quite similar but to someone growing them who is hands on with their roses, you can definitely see the differences.

But I will tell you that friends who saw my old Pinkie and remember it (it does make quite an impression on people) at my former home and have come to visit us at our current home in Newburyport and see our Peggy often ask if I dug her up and brought her with me when I moved here.

Just wanted to say that the official description here from Chamblee's says that this rose is fragrant and produces hips, but that really is not the case, at least not in my experience. We got ours from Antique Rose Emporium and they list it as having no scent or hips and that is essentially what we have found. This is, however, the ultimate vigorous, hardy rose, but definitely prone to fungus in the rain - although it seems to simply shake it off, never loses a leaf, and new growth is unaffected.

Ours blooms heavily in the spring, lightly in the fall, and so far, nothing in between, but this is only our third season with it. That, however, is what we have expected based on the descriptions from the commercial growers and the Peggy Martin website.

Also, I've grown Pinkie in the past - had an enormous Pinkie climber at my former home, and I definitely agree, they may look the same to the casual observer but they are very different to someone who knows their own roses..... I can tell the difference immediately, but I can't tell you how many people have seen our new Peggy and have asked, oh did you dig that up and bring it with you when you moved???? (No, we didn't!)
