apparently this rose is known as mint julep and emerald mist. I posted in one folder and it showed up in both.

Yes. You are correct. We do have 'Emerald Mist' listed as a synonym for 'Mint Julip', so your photo would go to the same rose page in the database. We no longer have a nursery listed as selling the rose as 'Emerald Mist'. Can you tell us where you purchased your rose ? Also, just by chance, do you have a reference ... possibly a catalog or website ... that lists the rose as 'Emerald Mist' that we can add to HMF as a reference ?

Thank you for taking the time to point out that this is the same rose as 'Mint Julip'.

Smiles,
Lyn

I purchased it years ago from Cottage farms. They sell them from time to time. None are on the website right now.

Thank you so much for getting back to us. Cottage Farms makes a practice of selling roses that are out of patent protection and re-naming them. They are not the only nursery who does this. It does makes things difficult to truly identify the rose consumers are purchasing.

Your rose was introduced into commerce as 'Mint Julip'.

Smiles,
Lyn

This is a beautiful pink with a peach blush in my garden. It is vigorous growing. However, it is a mildew magnet. I am willing to fight the mildew because it is so pretty.

What an interesting mottling effect. Did the blooms during the rest of the year appear this way?

No, just that one. I thought it was kinda cool. It was the very first bloom after I bought the plant.

It is very cool! I'll have to keep an eye on the one I just got and see if it does the same thing.
