I'm in contact with Don H & he is trying to get 'Rem. Michael' available for sale---contact me if you are still interested in this rose.

Hello Larry,
Don't know if you are still connected to WIRoses but I am trying to source Remembering Michael in memory of my recently deceased relative who lived in Sacramento. I have tried most places but seem to be drawing a blank.

Anyone else notice that the flower buds seem like they have some moss rose in them?
Reply #1 of 1 posted 17 FEB 18 by Michael Garhart
It's not true moss. It's a relic of some species roses, but could probably be easily bred into moss roses. I wouldn't recommend it, however, because moss roses tend to be more mildew prone, and RKO isn't a rose like Baby Love, for example, that tends to pass on mildew resistance easily.

According to Ping Lim's Face Book page the name 'Double 10' comes from....."October 10 is "Double10", the rose to celebrate the birth of first republic nation (ROC) in Asia!"

Ping Lim answered, “Double 10 means October 10, which is the birthday of the Republic of China,” Ping explained. “It was revealed at a ceremony by the Taiwan Consulate in Houston last October.”


And I don't know who thought this was a red rose. It's a clear dark orange.

Lovely pic.

How did this one overwinter for you?

Thanks, Robert

Planted 5 of them & all 5 came back. Being in z4, most of the canes died back to ground level for me. One of them was very slow to come back & failed to thrive, so I replaced it.....I guess I'm probably as far north as they like to grow. I really like the flowers as they provide a nice contrast to some Jackmanii clematis behind them.

Thanks for your reply.

That's not bad at all considering it wasn't bred for cold hardiness.

I wish more rosarians appreciated single roses. They give a lot of bang for the buck.

Happy Roses, Robert
