Looks like this is being released in Australia (some available in Bunnings currently) in the "Showpiece" series by Tesselaar

as Showpiece Champagne

others in the series:
NOA1811108 = Showpiece Blush
NOA38121 = Showpiece Berry
NOA16071 = Showpiece Lipstick

Same images used to market in other countries as on the Tesselaar site.

I see them on the Tesselaar site, but nothing to link those code names with the rose name.
Do you have a reference we can quote please Plazbo?

When you do a google image search of the individual plants images from tesselar site the same images on multiple sites come up (although sometimes with "adjustments")

If you look at the second image on this

It's the same image of Showpiece Blush...just with the saturation up and rotated clockwise 90 degrees (ie note the torn petal at the bottom on tesselar is now on the left)

that's probably not the best example, it does also have the same full bush image from the tesselar site (again with saturation changes). but then even RHS site is doing increased saturation like on

Showpiece lipstick image on tesselar same as on

An uncropped image of Showpiece Champagne (4th image in the slider/carousel)

Has the Showpiece Berry image, but again saturation has been increased.
another same image (without increased saturation)

There's a bunch of other sites but none of them are perfect, some don't have the breeder code and the other new Timeless series name (Cream, Pink, Red, Purple). It's a bit of piecing things together work. Still early in it's release cycle though so more conclusive evidence is likely to turn on in the next year or so.

Thank you Plazbo. You have gone to some trouble and I appreciate it. All synonyms added except for Timeless Red. I couldn’t find that one.

It was that or do work...procrastination won :)

You were right not to add timeless red, I somehow imagined/assumed? It's meant to be Timeless Charisma, breeder code and name on this page

There's a bug with this rose. Possibly in the name? (vaguely remember it happened before with something else)

Currently showing the below before the page content on the lineage/comments/photos page but fine on the main page.

Do not have this problem here. Do you still have it? and only with this rose?
Reply #2 of 3 posted 23 SEP by Plazbo
It's gone/fixed now. I do note the name has changed from

Rosa X "Nitiponensis"
Rosa X 'Nitiponensis'

so someone may have edited that

I had. It seems that double apostrophs have this effect (HMF Admin?)

When it gets adequate moisture, this is among my favorite roses because of the color of its rather informal blooms. The foliage sets them off perfectly. The growth habit, being rangy and awkward, requires more management than I'd like. Its worst problem is that it seems to be more adversely affected by drought than just about any other rose in my collection of over 200 cultivars. I've lost two, almost three, to dry conditions. Lesser roses I would have given up on long ago. It seems happier in clay than in very light soils if it is to endure long dry periods.

Thank you for that fantastic info. In my experience, yellow and orange rose need lots of moisture, and clay holds moisture better than sand. How's the scent on South Africa? Is it very light, or is it noticeable? Thank you.

I cannot say the scent is notable. Certainly Graham Thomas and Golden Celebration do better in this area. Also, the flowers are not very durable; it's certainly not a cutting rose. Still, it's a wonderful thing to behold when it is at the peak of bloom and enjoying ideal conditions.

Two surprises: 1) planted near Day Breaker, Lady Pamela Carol, and Graham Thomas it sets hips that turn a wonderful pumpkin orange. 2) given adequate moisture and light, it sports an occasional bloom right up until frost.

Thank you for your thorough answers. I appreciate that !!

My first one is blooming right now, I just planted this as a standard in February. The fragrance is the part that I’m most interested about because it does have fragrance and it’s unusual. I am so surprised that nobody else said anything about the fragrance. I wouldn’t say it’s strong but it is notably unique

First flower for me here in Australia.

Kind of a medium strength for me in the middle of the day and direct sun, not a wafter but obvious if you go and sniff the flower. I can detect sweet lemon/citrus but that's the most common smell I detect in most moderns so I'm possibly not the best sniffer.

Being sold in Australia (Bunnings) as "Funky Rose", seems distributor would be Landsdale Rose Gardens. Mentioned by someone in an Australian Rose facebook group.

Sorry Plazbo. I can’t find it. I’d need confirmation somehow that the rose that Bunnings carry is
Old Dutch SPEfunky and not
Funky (floribunda, Carruth 1999) syn ‘Betty Boop’.

testing if url with a . will work

-edit- it did, copy that ^ into a new window url and it'll have a pic of the plant label with the SPEfunky breeder code under the syn name and Landsdale Rose Gardens (assume their logo) on it also
Reply #3 of 5 posted 5 SEP by Patricia Routley
Nope. Not on my iPad. Can you handle this one please Jedmar?

Photo of label and synonym added. Introducer link to Lansdale Rose Gardens does not work

T’was Landsdale. One way or another we get there. Thanks everybody.
