I am listed as a breeder. But if one were to click on my name it does not seem to allow anyone to send me private messages.

I would like anyone to have the ability to send me a message.

Am I missing something here?

What makes you think HMF guests can not send you a private message. It's true unregistered guests can't, but that because unless they are registered and we have contact information we have no way to alert them to your potential response.

Registering on HMF is purely about utilizing the website properly and has nothing to do with marketing.

I clicked on Send PM on your page, and there was nothing to say it wouldn't work.

Dense climber to 11 feet in my eastern Carolina zone 7 garden. Will get black spot. Flowers are small and sparsely produced for such a large plant.

Contracted black-spot soon after planting. The flowers were attractive but lost almost all scent in the North Carolina heat. I was not impressed. I will not regret finding a replacement for this rose.

In my zone 7 eastern North Carolina garden my summers are long and hot with high humidity. Every Austin rose I have ever tried contracted overwhelming black-spot. This variety was no different. The flowers are fragrant in cooler temperatures, but lost most of their scent in the heat. In most cases I will not judge a rose for black spot resistance until it has been in the ground in the same spot for at least three years. This allows the pathogen to establish itself in the soil and debris around the rose. Roses that appear resistant during the first two years often begin contracting the fungal disease in the third year. Young Lycidas began showing signs of black-spot almost immediately.
