I need help changing a photo listing and also deleting some photos of roses I do not have anymore. I just cannot find where to do this. As an example I just uploaded a photo of Blueberry Hill but forgot to put the name in the right place and it shows Barbara NZ instead. Thanks

I noticed that the rose "Harriet Shepherd does not have a picture or information. Trinity Roses in New Zealand is selling that rose and has a good picture on their web site. It is from the breeder Ken Nobbs who has died and he was one of the founders of Heritage Roses New Zealand. The new owner of Trinity is Karen Piercy and if you contact her she should be able to help out with the picture and her information on Ken. Regards, Barbara

This is another rose that is so easy to grow. I have it running up an old apple tree in a garden in New Zealand. It is a late bloomer for me and needs very little care. It's canes get very long and as a rambler it can be pruned after flowering. Can you imagine the small cerise red flowers up in this old apple tree? In a few years it will be a magical sight!

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience - that's what HMF is all about. Please also know you need not include your entire name for your "HMF name" if you prefer some anonymity. It's up to you, we just wanted to make sure you were aware of the option.

I never saw your reply oh so long ago and thank you. I am not too worried about people knowing who or where I am but do appreciate you telling me of the option. Now all of these years later I have moved the rose to another garden and am starting over so that magical sight never evenuated. I love this rose and am thinking of putting it in the middle of two Cerise Bouquet that I have that is also a very gorgeous bloomer for me. Cerise Bouquet gets huge and so the rambler in the middle on a very tall pole will make a nice sight as well. Jedmar's picture of Crimson Showers is wonderful and gave me the idea that I might be able to put all of these roses together. Anything we want to do works really as it is not fashion or trends that I like, but the creative side of what we can do. Barbara

I wanted to up load a photo of "Zola" that I took at the RHS Garden at Wisley many years ago. The problem I have is the description of what you have listed for Zola. It says it is deep yellow and my picture is of a shrub rose by that name but it is white and apricot and very little yellow. Is there a possiblility that the description is incorrect and that is why no one has come forward with a picture? Thank you, Barbara in New Zealand.

Everything is possible in the rose world: Descriptions are incorrect, roses are mislabeled. In this case, the only description from MR speaks about a golden-yellow semi-double rose. Why don't you upload your picture with the remark 'Zola' at Wisley gardens and that might result in some discussion?

Thanks Jedmar for the suggestion as I did not want to upload an incorrect photo. But Wisley is not usually wrong in their labels and I have been making my slides into digital pictures and found this unknown rose to me. I will probably upload it after I make it smaller as I have been making big files for journals. Barbara
