can you tell me how Lens' Focus does in your garden? I have been told that the foliage is very ratty, but that was about a rose growing in the southland, I am on an island in Puget Sound, so think your conditions might be much closer to mine.
thank you

Hello The Old Rosarian:
If you receive this message that I sent from the Help Me Find site, could you please, if you still have Goldfassade, tell me how tall it grows, how fragrant (ie. very fragrant, some fragrance, no fragrance) is it an unfading dark yellow? I just bought a Goldfassade from Vintage Gardens and Gregg Lowery did not have any photos of this rose. Thank you. Margaret Lamb

Hi Lyn ! I always enjoy your photos and rose bushes. I am searching now to fill one spot in rose flower bed and would like to ask your advice . i have a small garden and try to choose fragrant and long bloomers.
Unfortunately, my Zephirine Drouhin boubon Bizot 1868 turned to be a once bloomer after 4 years.
But I miss her fragrance allure the whole season till next spring. Can you recommend a rose which looks and extremely fragrant like Madame Isaac Pereire rose (Zepherine Drouhin)but has good repeat at least 3 flashes for a season. I need to add it as a contract next to Cotillion Zary 1999

Thanks a lot,

I tried to go to the link for Old Rosarian ( and was taken to a photo of a baby polar bear. Upon scrolling down, the script was in an oriental language.

I've been to this site before, so I know it exists.

Yes, it may have existed at one time but that same web address is now pointing to the different web site shown. This is not a HelpMeFind error. We'll contact this member to see if they know.

The Old Rosarian said on The Garden Web on October 19, 2010:

"I have taken my website off the Internet to re-design it and to also make a section which will feature mainly the disease free roses that are coming on the market from the States and Europe. Many countries in Europe have banned cosmetic spraying and breeders are doing an excellent job of introducing roses which have far superior resistance to black spot than the older ones. The States also has breeders which are concentrating on disease resistant roses. "

It seems the new website is not yet on stream.

It appears she let her domain name registration expire and someone else scooped it up.
