Dear esteemed members,

Does anybody has any information regarding who Mrs. ‘Isabel de Ortíz’ was? Thanks in advance for any information regarding the origin or provenience of this unique name for such a unique rose.

Warmest regards.
Mariano.

No certain information. A Mrs Isabel de Ortiz Martin was member of the Costa Rican Delegation to the United Nations in 1961. Was she a rose aficionado?

Mariano, you could try contacting Kordes and asking them.

I see the fat hips of Rosa dumalis on your photo. In a garden I have recently seen a Rosa canina growing together with another which I think is Rosa dumalis. The hips are 3cm long and 7 cm in diameter. This is quite a variable rose, but are the photos similar to your plant?

It certainly looks like it. Persistent calyxes and vicious sharp hooked prickles. It is similar to rubiginosa with flowers much darker than Rosa canina but lacks apple scented new shoots. In spring and summer the leaves have a blueish look, a bit like an alba rose.

Why is this rose listed as a sport of 'New Dawn' when it is actually a hybrid?

According to "Modern Roses" it is a hybrid between 'V for Victory' and apparently a pollen mix between two sports of 'New Dawn' and 'Copper Glow'. Difficult to say more without having access to the patent.

Doesn't that make 'Lourdes' a hybrid and not a sport?

It is listed as a sport on the 'New Dawn' profile along with 'Probuzení' and 'Weisse New Dawn'. 'Lourdes' is listed as a Hybrid-Tea whilst the other two are sports and listed as Hybrid Wichuranas, like 'New Dawn'.

I am not sure why 'Lourdes' is listed as a sport on the 'New Dawn' profile. It should be a hybrid. Perhaps Admin might like to take a look.

It is interesting because of the discussion about the repeat flowering ability of 'New Dawn'. The two sports of 'New Dawn', 'Probuzení' and 'Weisse New Dawn' only have "Occasional repeat later in the season" whilst 'New Dawn' itself is supposed to, "Blooms in flushes throughout the season".
