Ying Doon Moy passed away in the Autumn of 2012. As well as several rose varieties he created the Red Dragon hibiscus, Moy ginger, and Pretty Papaya . He will probably be best known for creating the Moy Grande Hibiscus which features 12 inch flowers.

An excellent rose that will tolerate a shaded situation. Very hardy, no disease. Continuous flowering.

My Wisely2008 is about two years old and is a nice healthy arching shrub, but has only had a very few blooms on the ends of its long stems throughout its lifespan.. Did you, or anyone else, find this variety to be a slow starter, or did I get a dud? I live in SW Texas. It's hot and dry here, but the rose in planted in good soil and gets plenty of water.

Thank you for posting this photo ! It certainly shows how determined roses are to live. I am looking forward to the photos you'll be posting from the roses you get from your cuttings.

Smiles,
Lyn

Oh Lyn, this photo surely deserves the vote at the worst rose photo on the site! It is so bad that I've been considering deleting it. Do you think I should? But like the old cemetery roses this rose has proven that it will survive and bloom and keep its leaves in the heat and drought of August under the most adverse of conditions. And it even rooted in Aug/Sept.! For these reasons it certainly sparked my interest. I've noticed that a couple of Florida nurseries offer it as well as its pink sport so they must know that it is one that will bloom in the heat.

Roselee........

Please don't delete the photo. It truly is informative and may inspire other site users to take a second look at a distressed rose and look beyond it's current condition and see it's possibilities.

I've rescued a few roses myself and know that if I didn't know what I was looking for, I might have missed an opportunity to rescue a good plant.

Smiles,
Lyn
