Marina, Wondering if you would like to trade cuttings. I would love to have some cuttings of Sandra Renaissance. I have many roses to choose from. Let me know, Thanks, Pam

Do you know where I could find an Abracadabra rose? I saw you posted a picture and just wondering if you know of a grower that sells them. Thanks for your help.

Dear Brian,
Unfortunately, I don't know where to buy 'Abracadabra' rose and I don't have it in my garden.
I would suggest to check eBay periodically - this rose is listed there from time to time.

Hi Marina! I like your roses and bouquets a lot. You have a lot of creativity.
I noticed you grow Siren's Keep Barden 2003 and very interested if you describe me the fragrance of this one. RVR says that you can detect the smell at a few feet away. Is it similar to Zepherine Drouhin bourbon rose? I have one but it is one time bloomer and I miss the fragrance the whole season. Now I am trying to add wafting roses to my garden that blooms 3-4 full flashes either as a bush or climbers.Zone 6b If you can recommend one I appreciate it.
Does Siren's Keep blooms in flashes 3-4 for a season or only once in spring with sporadic rebloom?
Will it work as a climber 6-8 feet?

Thanks a lot,

Dear Oxana,
Yes, I do have Siren's Keep in my garden, but it is planted in less than favorable conditions (poor soil, weeds, no supplemental water). In it's third year it is no taller than 3'. It definitely needs more attention to show it's full potential. So far, my Siren's Keep blooms really sparsely and I had never checked it for fragrance.
I am sorry, I am not of much help for you.

Oh, I forgot to answer your question about 'wafting' roses.
For some reason only one rose comes to my mind - Jacques Cartier - you definitely will smell it from a few feet away.
Lots of roses are fragrant but only Jacques Cartier's fragrance can 'travel' through the garden (to my nose, of course).

Hi Marina ! Thanks for your response. I appreciate it.Your information was very helpfull.
I will research more on Siren's Keep . I like Jacques Cartier rose. Almost every rose of mine is pink color.
Post more photos in spring and happy gardening.
Best wishes,

Most of my roses don't last long in a vase, but there are a few that work fine for the bouquets.
Frederic Mistral (light pink with wonderful fragrance), Bolero (white fragrant rose with old-fashioned blooms),
Yves Piaget, Rouge Royale, Auguste Renoir. It looks like all these roses are from Meilland's 'Romantica' series.
All these roses also make a very attractive bush in the garden.

Thank you, Marina. Thank you for the pictures of Francis Blaise that you posted as cut flowers. Very nice.
