After more than 7 years growing them side-by-side, "Ferndale Red China"; and "Korbel Canyon Red China" are the same variety, in my opinion, or so alike that that there is virtually no difference between them. Both have a light cherry scent, from time to time. Both grow very tall here, at least 8' with support.

I always found this cultivar highly under rated.

Where did you acquire it?

Thanks, Robert

It is glorious, and nearly always in bloom -- so many flushes over the season. Great as a cut flower, too. This plant came as a band from Vintage Gardens in 2010.

It looks like you got a really nice clone.

I used to grow the climbing version. I loved it but the repeat was much slower than the bush version.


Thank you

Deborah, following a hunch here, could you serve us up a plate of petals from an average bloom of “San Leandro Dark Red HT” - (much as I have done with the Australian foundling “Ebenezer Cemetery Miniature China”). I would like to confirm the petal shape and number of petals for “San Leandro Dark Red HT”.

Patricia, the rose isn't in bloom at this time, but should start a fall flush sometime soon. When it blooms again, I can certainly post a plate of petals for you.

Thank you.

I've just posted some photos of blooms and dissections in "fall mode", Patricia. They are generally a little smaller, maybe a few less petals, and not as intensely black as the blooms in cooler spring weather, but typical for this time of year.

Thanks Deborah. A couple of weeks ago I passed one of my tiny bushes of ‘Crimson Glory’ and it seemed to have “sage green” foliage. That and the intense fragrance seemed a possibility. So then I read the patent for ‘Crimson Glory’ and I wanted to see how big the white nub was in the “San Leandro Dark Red HT”. My bushes are not yet blooming but the Patent indicates a bigger white nub in ‘Crimson Glory’. I would guess that your foundling is not C.G. Yes, yes - I know you could have told me that. Anyway, I’ll keep my eye out for other possibilities.

Good to know, Patricia. I don't know 'Crimson Glory' "personally" and was interested to see that some of its blooms can at times resemble those on this rose, looking at photos on HMF. In any case, it was good to get some dissected flower photos up for future reference!
