Responding to Nadene’s photo of ‘Etoile de Hollande Cl.’ at the Rex Hazlewood Garden.
Nadene, do you see any difference at all between the bush, and the climber?
Billy has mentioned that Ross Roses supplied many of the roses for the Old Parliament House rose garden.
I have a rose that Ross Roses presented to Rose Marsh (the founder of Heritage Roses in Western Australia) in 1994. My climber, a 2001 cutting of this rose, blues. ‘Etoile de Hollande’ is not supposed to blue. I would love to hear of your observations on both the bush and climber.

Hi Patricia, Sorry I missed this post. I will be returning to the gardens soon and will visit the two roses for comparison. Is either the bush or climber known for rootstock suckers. The two climbers in this garden are notorious for this.

Update: The first three photos are of the climber. The last three are of the bush HT. At the moment there is not too many flowers and they are all up the very top of the pillars. I was unable to see any colour change amongst the few that are there. There are not many new canes except the root stock that has snuck through. I will have to keep watching it for you.

For me Étoile de Hollande Cl. blues inside the house. Not in the garden.

That would make sense because I believe the pH of the water in the vase affects the amount of bluing.

The soil in our garden has a higher pH than our tap-water.

I would say NOT 'Alexander' which is distinctly vermilion.

No worries, I thought something didn't seem quite right.

Looks a bit like 'Diamond Jubilee' to me, as it has that unattractive unopened bud but opens up to a well-shaped flower. The colour is about right too. DJ has a wonderful strong scent.
