Hi Beth,

That is horrible! I can only imagine how heartbreaking that can be. I don't have many roses right now, but whatever I have, I will gladly send you cuttings or root some for you. Let me know.

Shocking! Beth's photos were always treasured.

I am so sorry Beth, and hope you are OK.
It IS unfathomable.
It will be so special to see what does rise from the ashes.

I am quite sure ‘Souvenir de Mme. Leonie Viennot’ will be one of those to rise from the ashes for you. The 1998 Page 29 Australian Rose Annual reference for that rose shows it can certainly survive fires.

Beth, I have been noticing your photos of the many roses captioned “a survivor of the Camp fire”. I see your garden listing has 896 roses. May I ask, how did you know which survivor rose was which? Memory, metal labels, the HelpMeFind listing?

From where may I purchase this rose. I noticed someone near me grows it, but I don't find a source. Thank you for any updated info.

Thank you! I wish Paul Barden's roses were available in Europe, too!

ESPRESSO and MAMA AFRICA are not the same rose. ESPRESSO is a florist rose with the codename of SPEresso, not Spebrown. Unfortunately, I no longer have the original ESPRESSO. But the photos should be move under a new listing with the correct codename. I'm not even sure if MAMA AFRICA has an alternate name of ESPRESSO. Not sure how these got mixed up.

Ludwig's Roses is selling SPEbrown as 'Mama Africa'. SPEbrown has the breeder code of SPE13/0186-06 and trade name 'Espresso', so it cannot be the florists rose from 2005. We seem to have a repeated use of the trade names.
