Brittie, I feel very sorry for you and other Texans who had to endure such abnormal freezing temperatures. I hope your roses recover. Were they own-root? Let us know how they go.

Yes, they are own root and have been planted for seven years now. Hopefully they pull through! I've never seen them look so bad though. :(

Fingers crossed. I think 'Maman Cochet' has a reputation of withstanding more cold than other Teas. I don't know about the others. Hopefully being own-root they'll reshoot from the base.

Thanks, an extraordinary rose quite disease free. It grows in a sidewalk's crack in front of the house (Northen side, no air circulation and only few sun hours before the sunset from March to October). It never had any kind of fertilisation nor any kind of watering (since it is impossible to do : the plant growing from a crack.......)

How often does it bloom for you during the growing season?

My young Isabella Ducrot looks exactly the same as yours, and I've also been wondering if it's the correct rose. I'm a little disappointed at the pale pink color, honestly. Mine was also purchased from Rose Petals Nursery.

When I read your comment from 2018 I knew we had the same plant. You mentioned pale pink and weak neck, we have the same plant and mine was ordered in 2017, I think the same year you ordered yours. That was my first (and last) order from Rose Petals as the other Rose I ordered from them was wrong too. If it weren't for this website I wouldn't have known about your experience, and the fact we both received the wrong rose. Thank you for your posts!

Does this pale rose have any prickles on its stems?
Reply #3 of 3 posted 4 JUN 19 by Camieux
No. I just checked the plant. It has 3 small blooms with no prickles on their stems. The other prickles on the plant aren't many or very big. The whole plant is only about 6" high, 8" wide. All the blooms flop over due to the weak stems. I will post a photo of plant if you would like.
