Seedlings of Silver Jubilee tend to be dense and bushy. But not particularly disease resistant.

Silver Jubilee does well here in zone 9B in a no spray garden. It shows no tendency toward disease.

Which varieties of roses do you grow there that appear free of disease? And how long have they been in place?
Roses often do not show diseases until they have been in the same spot in the garden for 2 or 3 years. I think the pathogens need to get established in the soil around them.

I have over 3000 rose plants of all kinds. Most of the roses are HT (many of which are Florist Roses) and FL. The weather here is 90 to over 100 degrees for most of the summer. The only time I have any sign of fungus in my garden is in the spring. When it gets hot, the leaves affected fall off and new growth appears fungus free. All of the roses in the main garden have been there more than 10 year. When I first planted my garden, I used fungicides. Then one year I didn't spray and the roses did better than ever. I now have a spray free garden except for the Fusilade II that I spray to prevent grasses and a pre-emergent that we spray once in the winter.

It appears you live in southern California. Here in North Carolina the air much more humid and rain a problem. We had 2 hurricanes blow through there this year and had a stretch of heavy rain seven days in a row.

Fungus was a problem for us.

3000 roses it a lot. How did you acquire so many??

I looked at some of your photos. Gypsy Curiosa for example.

Do you have this rose growing in your garden?

Do you have a computerized list of the roses in your possession?

If so, I'd be interested in checking it out.

But if it not already compiled I can't imagine trying to run down the names of so many roses.

I acquired so many because I have been growing roses for a long time----and I had a lot of great resources for these roses. Unfortunately many of these resources no longer exist. I got a lot of florist roses from Carlton's ---and a lot of great and hard to find roses from Cliff Orent's Eurodesert Roses and Vintage Roses. Yes I do have Gypsy Curiosa and Blue Curiosa---Which is quite lovely too. HMF has a list of my roses.
A good source for hard to find roses now is the CCRS auction. I bid online ---and they ship them to me.
I live in the San Francisco Bay area---inland about 40 miles. It is a very hot and mild climate with low humidity most of the time.

This is the first time I have ever heard of the CCRS auction.

I live in North Carolina.

What is the standard bid for these roses??

What is a normal price range??

I reviewed the list and there are a few I'd like to have
Reply #10 of 13 posted 23 OCT by jmile
From past experience they range anywhere. I know that is no help, but I just bid what I think that it is worth to me and wait to see what it is worth to someone else. The online rep only goes up to your bid. If you bid $30 and the other top bid is $20, You only pay a $1 more at $21. If I am wrong, please someone correct me.

OK thanks.

I put in a bid for a rose and I suppose I'll hear if I won by the end of the month.

Are you bidding on any?

Nice flower, some scent. Offspring tend to be fragrant. However there is too much bush for the size and quantity of the flowers. Plant grows 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide. Decent bloom in spring and then intermittent blooms later in the year. Requires spraying. Fertile as both a seed and pollen parent.

I have a no spray garden---this rose is fungus free. My rose is continuously in bloom as long as I dead head it.

The plant grew slowly for me. The flowers were small, well formed, and had little scent. It was not particularly disease resistant; the plant seemed to sprawl. I've since parted with it.

Your roses look wonderful.

I particularly like the photos of "Treasures."

I wish I could get it here in the States.

Keep up the good work.

Dear Steve,
Thank you for your positive comments about my roses and my work.

But who gives it to me! I looked at your roses and left without words. I admire you the masses of flowers, mostly large, which give a great beautiful visual effect to the garden. And as I see you also have those who are "always in bloom". The mass of flowers and long flowering is one of my next goals, which I still have to conquer. Some of them do, but not enough.
Your pictures say everything, you are excellent breeder.
The Treasures Rose, along with the Predicate of Wine, Proteus Anguinus Rose, The Healing Codes, the Dekani and Good Day are in the test field in the Netherland, on a 2-year trial.

Treasure is still a small rose with tinny branches, I think it will take some time to finally develop, as it is still young.
I also wish you many successes.

Kind regards, Irena Fabjan, Slovenia
