Hi, I was wondering if anyone would be able to please help me identify this rose. It is growing in the location of SG56 C09 Rex Hazlewood Rose Garden. It is meant to be the rose Hansa. I have been able to identify a couple of true Hansa Canes (picture on rose page) which have been completely swamped by this rose. This rose has spread an easy 5 to 7m within the garden bed. It shares the garden bed with, R. rugosa alba, Schneezwerg, Blanc Double de Courbert, F.J. Grrotendorst, Fimbriata, Sarah van Fleet, Belle Poitevine, Roseraie de l'Hay and Fru Dagmar Hartopp. Does any one recognise this rose, or is it also possible it has self seeded / reverted to a parent rose etc.
If I am unable to identify it, is it acceptable to use Rugosa species, Unknown for a sign.
Thankyou.

Edit, could it be R. rugosa? That suckers like mad.

Veilchenblau’s thought of R. rugosa is good.
The sign. I don’t know. But it could be a seedling of a rugosa hybrid - there are so many of the single purple rugosas out there. I would be inclined to use.....Rugosa, unknown.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I do like this rose and its hips even though it has invaded the garden. Thankyou.

Have you identified this Nadene, or shall I make a “study file” for it?

Hi Patricia, That would be great if you could create a study file. I have not yet entered any data for a plaque for this rose. Rex Hazlewood SG56 C09. Any information / feedback would be wonderful. Thanks, Nadene

Study file "Hazlewood SG56 C09" added and photos moved. Unfortunately I am unable to move the comments. If there is any information above that would help in the identification, just copy and paste and do a comment in the new file.

Beginner question here: As a first time rose-grower, I'm looking for a good rose to quickly ascend a north-facing wall in St. Louis, and was pretty taken with the description of 'Rambling Rector'. However, I haven't had any luck finding this in stock in any US nursery. I was wondering if this is just a seasonal thing, or if perhaps I happen to be trying to find a particularly rare or unobtainable variety.

[edit: of course, if anyone wants to recommend something better for this situation, I'm happy to take suggestions]

Thanks!
Robbie

I think it is seasonal, as you say, for many of the older varieties you have to pre order them to be sent in winter.
But hopefully someone in your neck of the woods will chime in and confirm that. (I'm in Australia)
I did have rambling rector and wedding day climbing up an old pine tree, in a shady grove, and they both grew and flowered well in the part shade. So did Silver Moon. And Veilchenblau, which has the advantage of being (mostly) thornless .
The Cherokee Rose grew well, but didn't flower too often. I think it needs full sun to really flower well. (and is St Louis too cold for that one anyway?)
edit, Alberic Barbier, Albertine and Mme Alfred Carriere might be ones to consider as well. I did grow those, not in part shade myself, but they are very tough. And I have read others say they have some shade tolerance.
Hope some of that helps.

It comes down to whether you want a rose that has only one flowering season, like Rambling Rector, or repeat-flowers. Mme Alfed Carriere, as suggested by Delaney, is a nice scented repeat-flowerer. You could contact a Heritage Roses group in your area, to ask what does well in your climate.

Thank you both for the wonderfully helpful and productive responses!

Another thing that I like to do is go through the photos of individual roses and find someone in my region, and go to their garden page and see what they are growing. that is a great resource and really helpful.
Each description page for each rose tells you what zone it will grow in, so I hope that I've given you some useful suggestions there.
Cheers.

It happened to me recently too.
I'm starting over too. A new garden in a new place. Just a handful of plants at a time. And it's amazing to see how quickly the birds have returned.
Cheers.
Later edit, for smytsm, I'm sorry if my comments caused problems on your garden page and wish you well in the future. Good luck with your new garden.

Yep, same here. It's been a conscious decision both times. Some superstitious primal brain remnant doesn't want me to tempt fate by mentioning how long I've been at new place, but it's coming along. Almost a complete blank slate, also in great need of rehabilitation. It's painful ultimately, bit I'd rather foster life than not. It's a kind of devotion, and of the deepest importance.

You've changed your name again...

Yes, and it's not a rose name (which I think more appropriate), so it may just stick this time....or not...:P

...and thanks for your interest in my name. Not sure what you're saying is more appropriate. Not sure it's appropriate to opine on the appropriateness of names (unless obviously offensive). They're the remit of the user.

Sorry for the confusion Smtysm. I was talking about my name. I changed my online name recently from Veilchenblau to Delaney. As I thought it not a good idea to have an online name that was a rose name - when people search for a rose i didn't want my profile page (or comments) to come up.

Ah, I see :)
Thank you very much for the clarification. Phew :P

Regardless, I hope things are going well for you in your new garden. I'm planting olive trees today to hide the water tanks from the road. And finding a new spot for Souvenir de la Malmaison.

Thanks. It's a slow, gradual process but always fulfilling. Latest, native violets into a side bed and attempting to help a Valencia orange by repotting. Thinking of renouncing custodianship so it can go into the ground somewhere and flourish. :'(
Truth is, the grief resounds down through time, mostly dormant, occasionally acute. From day to day, lots to enjoy. Heaps of bulbs! And a lavender that's gangbusters and chockas with bees. Thinking of expanding on that.
Wish I had space for big roses and olives! Good on you.

I wish we could grow oranges, it's too cold here. Plums, cherries and stone fruits do well. We have a peach tree that is doing amazingly well.
Olives will grow in our soil. Tough as old boots, and bush fire resistant.

PS.what lavender and bulbs?

Reply #14 of 15 posted 30 MAR by Patricia Routley
May I kindly remind you both that this is a roses, clematis and peonies website. We haven’t yet branched out into lavender and bulbs.
You might like to take a look at the DONATIONS box sometime - on the left, near the top.

I think Margaret was talking to me about my recent name change. (I thought her comment went to me in the thread, and I had just changed my name)

You can't control what people are going to do that come after you. All any of us can do is what makes us happy and what we think is right. Good luck with your new garden.
