I remember Souvenir du Docteur Jamain as a dark red, "velvet', thick-petaled rose that turned violet, medium size, well-scented, with tall arching canes that I pegged halfway down to get more flowers. A very lovely rose (mine from Roses of Yesterday and Today), but it needed spraying, and was finally killed by a combination of blackspot and tree roots from a giant tulip poplar that just loved the water I gave the Dr. Also, it bloomed once, never more. Fondly recalled.

Dear all,

I would like to know how to "open" the articles published on HMF, there is no link
for me save "authors".
Best wishes,
Pierre Lauwers

En principe, vous devriez avoir à gauche la liste des rubriques, la première du haut est "welcome" et la quatrième en partant du bas est "articles & publications".

Merci Madame Hiemann,

C'est une fois sur la bonne page que je ne trouve pas
de liens pour ouvrir les fichiers des articles. Je n'ai accès
qu'aux titres.

Merci et bien à vous,
Pierre Lauwers

Hi, Pierre.
Is there a particular article that interests you? I have a few available electronically that I may be able to provide.

Thanks, Cass !

I was interested with:

-"Phylogeny and polyploidy in Roses", Macfarlane 1938

-"Rosa Chinensis spontanea", Curtis's botanical magazine, 2005

Best wishes,

I have both, Pierre. Please email me privately using the link for my HMF garden address.

I will then email you the URL of a service where you may download the files.

The articles in the "Articles & Publications" section are only referenced and cannot be read. The articles published on HMF are in the "Ezine" section. There, you can search by month, by author, or by a word or word combination.

I had several Mail contacts with Mel, about Roses, and also about the plants he dealt with previously. He will be much regretted. Condolences to all from Belgium.

I particularly chose this rose for its colouring, but its growth habit has become almost wild. It is only about 3 years old, was pruned heavily last July (I am in Australia), and now has about 20 stems, each at least 4-5 feet long - but no flowers! Does anyone have any ideas?

Many vigorous roses will make growth at the expense of making flowers, as there is no energy left over to grow and also produce flowers. Pruning will activate new growth in a rose plant so not pruning as hard and not giving the bush any fertilizer should make it bloom.

Mine is a big climber -I already discussed it on the Web- about 10 feet in a tree, with
partial shade.
Two years ago the tree died.
Deprived of the tree's foliage protection, the rose lost its vigor and is now a bush, while
its cuttings grow happily in others trees.
For rebloom you have to wait some years, like with any other HPs -and indeed climbing
Hybrid Teas as well-. After five years you may expect good results.
