Seems to do well as a cut flower indoors....also "blue's" up a lot more than compared to outdoors (at least in this cooler autumn weather). From just opening bud to indoor seems to develop to around an N82b (Purple-Violet) in the RHS colour chart, outdoors it develops far more towards the pink side. Possibly of interest to anyone flowering arranging with it.

It's a 6.5' x 6.5' Floribunda??!

I don't know that rose at all, but my Apricot Nectar, which is classed as floribunda, is that big with minimal pruning.

My Birthday Girl is 6'T x 4'W, but its an unusual rose, so I'm sort of surprised a modern commercial floribunda would be that large.

While Ludwig Roses claim two metres, Treloar Roses website state 1.2 metres. While only two years old the plants in the Adelaide Trial Garden are around the one metre in height. They are behaving more like a floribunda than Apricot Nectar does with its tendency to send out strong long stems

Ludwig recently posted this image on facebook

Granted no context for size but roughly 25 flower diameters tall, after a quick run through photoshop for pixel measurements. So if flower size is roughly 7cm/3in then that's around 175cm tall....but it's all rough estimations

On a separate note, nice to see the fade isn't horrid like is often the case (in my opinion) with orange roses.

Impressive photograph by Ludwig. I guess 1.2 metres sounds better than 2 metres to the buying public, just as I need to rethink placement of the rose on order. The rose does fade but only after the stale stamens stage as one of the posted images show.

I image so...I've learnt to take height of new releases with a grain of salt, eg Adorable 0.8m....currently blooming at the end of a cane above the 1.8m fence it's next to. Possibly just an abnormally vigorous cane, will see what happens next season and as it matures.

Funny I mentioned Birthday Girl, because mine grew just like in the photo by Johno. It was such a great rose, but I got tired of pruning it every winter. It got yeeted when I got a nice, short seedling from BG. That photo is at Treloar? I imagine it has more light than the PNW (of USA), and it looks about 15% shorter than Birthday Girl here, so I imagine its about 2/3 the size of Birthday Girl in most climates.

Rose Listing Omission

Pink Illusion

Looks like another new intro from Treloars by Kordes

Checked through the various existing Kordes bred roses and nothing matched.

Anyone with it able to comment on fragrance?

Noticed it got an award for fragrance in Glasgow and the German Kordes site list it as fragrant....but listed on here as mild, most of the Australian retail sites list it as light fragrance, the Adelaide rose trial site list at as moderate in he 2017 results.

None of the current comments on here mention fragrance. Thank you.
