I got this rose this spring 2016. Yet it won't bloom. The leaves are flawless and the plant is as tall as I am. I have fertilized it yet no buds?

Any ideas anybody?

Maybe hold off water. It works for citrus trees.

Maybe try a high potash low nitrogen fertilizer?

Not sure but it's a theory: Mine went nuts both in height and number of blooms and my garden is one of those strange "very alkaline" soils. I think there is limestone mixed in. Hydrangeas always pink, etc etc. Maybe this rose wants alkaline?

did it repeat bloom for you? For me after the initial lenghty spring bloom which ended in July..It had scanty blooms. compared to 100's of blooms there were 3 or 4 blooms here and there. I am curious as the description states blooms in flushes, that has not been my experience

started really blooming after year 3 of planting, own root. extremely vigorous. I am curious about its repeat blooming potential

Yes after the initial slow start Madame Anisette is doing great. Beautiful clusters of roses that bloom in flushes. It did take 2 years.

Too much nitrogen in the soil will cause too much foliage growth, but no blooms, apparently. Glad it's sorted now though.

Basyes Blueberry needs full sun for quick repeat. This rose is always healthy, I don't spray, and we get week-long rain. My own-root from Burlington is 100% smooth. The leaves are pretty in my alkaline soil. The scent is intense wild rose, smells good in any weather, and better than my 15 Austins. The color really shines from a distance. It's a no work, and plenty of enjoyment rose. I hope more breeding will come out of this rose to perpetute its delightful scent. The bees love this bush.

Thank you, I always look for your feed back, its always spot on. I just got Basye's and getting ready to plant her. Thinking of putting her in the front, your picture helped make the decision. It looks like peonies

Root of Basye' is different, it's one thick & long strand of rope, rather than woody like other roses. It's drought-tolerant since the root is very deep. I gave it to a friend in CA and he loves it. I'm into cutting roses for the vase and it's harder to cut Basyes' than other roses, that's why I gave it away.

Thank you, StrawChicago. I am mostly looking for Rose's that provide color in the front yard with abundant blooms. I have these single petal peonies, which are much larger with yellow stamen in the middle, basye reminds me of them. I have plenty of HTs, but need some prolific bloomers, the only rose that blooms non stop is madame Anisette, followed by poseidon and savannah. So far out of the 100+ none match madame Anisette. Please let me know, if you have any that bloom well for you. I am tired of miserly bloomers. But this year I have fiund some good plants but they were recently planted red so will take time to acclimate. Black cherry, jubilee celebration, daybreaker, poets wife. Distant drums, florentina, gene boerner, lady ashe and Beverly. Hope to add Auguste renoir, Yves piaget, and more in the next year or so. Another one that looks very promising and has super bright yellow flowers is Sol Desire, not much written about it. Hmf has some trial photos. I got it as a cheap body bag, which usually takes time to strengthen. But sol desire has lush foliage and loaded with buds- mine was planted in mid april

I would love to know how the new plants you acquired this year doing. Thank you. I find that own-root shrubs improve with blooming as they mature, except for some wimpy hybrid-teas that got weaker through my zone 5a. It sounds like you have neutral pH clay with Savannah, Madame Anisette doing well. Savannah refused to bloom in my rock-hard clay (pH 7.7) until I moved it next to the rain-spout dumping acidic rain water. The ones that bloom non-stop for me have vigorous roots and like my heavy clay .. these also have glossy & dark green foliage (such as peonies which love my dense clay). Right now my prettiest roses which bloom easily & nice-looking shrubs are: Amber queen (very glossy), Princess Ann (light green & glossy), Orchid Romance & Evelyn & Tchaikosky (all dark-green and glossy), Poseidon (glossy leaves), Bolero & Pat Austin (glossy) Prairie Harvest (glossy light green foliage), Savannah (glossy dark green), and Twilight Zone (lighter glossy leaves), Betty White (dark & glossy leaves), Princesse Charlene De Monaco (lighter green glossy leaves). The glossier the leaves, the more they can take poor-drainage clay and won't blackspot. I have a soaking wet & poor drainage clay bed that nothing lives (all the spring bulbs rot in there), but Kordes FlowerCarpet with shiny & glossy foliage thrive in that bed for 20 years with zero diseases ... Bayes blueberry also thrived with zero blackspots in that poor-drainage bed.

Please have pity on anyone in the future seeking information specifically on ‘Basye’s Blueberry.‘ Both of you might like to investigate Q AND A FORUM / POSTS BY CATEGORY/ BUYING AND SELECTING etc. if you feel you need to blather on.

I think this rose needs an Excellent ++. Out of about 200 Rose's, this is the only truly disease resistant rose I have. Foliage beautiful, and lush. Was an own root, that did not flower much until it hit year 3. Then flowered like it was on steroids. Plant gets very tall and needs support, mine is close 7ft. It Is surrounded with Rose's that have blackspot, not a spot on this plant. Only downside is flowers are so densely petaled that it can ball if rains continuously. Fragrance for me is moderate, soft and smells like anise. Colors start of peach, turns pink and then becomes creamy. Best rose plant I have ever had. Very happy with it

The captions on your photos say "Sugar Moon", but you've posted them under 'Madame Anisette'. You might want to double check the photos. :)

Thank you! :) corrected it

Tend to agree that the only issue for most will be the balling.

If from an area that get's extreme heat (44c/110f) the leaves will pretty much all scorch...but that temp is an extreme that the vast majority of people won't have to deal with.

Possibly also height and how it's fairly vertical/column in shape but that's nitpicky and depends on intended use.

Seedlings from it are better than average for health but often have a some spotting dependent on other parent.

Thank you! We can get close to 100 degrees here. But I am just so happy that it does not get any black spot. All my Rose's have black spot. I suppose balling and height is easier to put I up with as it is out weighed by vigor, continous blooming, fragrance and excellent rose form
