This is my first Hulthemia hybrid, bought in 2018. The foliage is simply luscious. I think I'd grow it for this alone but the flowers are quite charming. The scent reminds me of wild roses with a little added spice. I've since bought another three varieties. Oh dear! Just what I needed - another collection.

This rose is as tough as old boots! It's survived drought, snow and the depredations of possums. It's never been sprayed nor has it been fertilised often & it's still going strong. A truly great performer here in Tasmania.

Saw this rose for sale today in a garden centre. The lower foliage of all three plants was significantly infected with black spot, as was another variety of the same "Cleanleaf" range whose name I didn't get. Growing conditions were obviously less than optimum as the plants are in containers & very much more crowded than they would be in a garden & were subject to overhead watering only. Perhaps they perform better when planted out?

Simply the most black-spotty thing I've ever grown. It looked like someone had tipped a bottle of Indian Ink over the plant. Although I sprayed regularly, it succumbed in very short order. A pity as the flowers were quite sweet although the scent was rather slight. Perhaps it does better in climates other than cool temperate?
