Does anyone else feel like this rose is WAY taller than the desription? Mine is pushing 6 feet tall, I thought it was mislabelled but the flowers are unmistakable. It is like a climber over a path which I had planted towards the front so it wouldn't "block" the things behind it! It's ok, I don't mind! I felt like it is an improved Souvenir De La Malmaison, way more vigorous, not prone to balling, but with the same romance and sumptuousness of SDLM. And is way more hardy in my zone 5 garden. A rose fit for a queen

Siiiii, a mí me pasa también. Mi rosal tiene poco más de 2 años y ahora mismo mide más de 2 m, parece un escalador, y puse un esqueje y mide lo mismo, sobrepasa los 2 m. Pero no me importa, es un rosal precioso y espectacular, robusto, muy perfumado, muy florífero y sano .Recuerda las rosas antiguas y sirve para poner las flores en un jarrón, duran mucho en agua. Es uno de mis rosales más queridos, lo recomiendo.

Perdón por escribir en español, pero el inglés se me resiste, espero que me entendais, yo con el traductor no tengo problemas.

No problema! Fui profesora de espanol y lo estudie en universidad. No se como utilizar los accentos. Pense que el rootstock hace la rosa asi grande, pero ahora pienso que es probablamente in las geneticas de la rosa.

Vaya, me alegro de que fueras profesora de español!!! Los acentos son un problema para todos jajaja, así que no te preocupes por eso, se te entiende estupéndamente.

Tal vez tengas razón y tenga que ver con la genética del rosal, pues tengo más variedades de Kordes que tienden a crecer mucho más de lo que se indica en los catálogos, son demasiado vigorosos diría yo.

Un abrazo.

I got it a month or so ago and its just turned spring, a few buds on the way. Being in Australia though should be able to weigh in on the height in a few months....but most roses are a fair bit taller than listed in this climate. At the moment though its still fairly short and round.

Hi, I am having a hard time getting the site to renew my sponsorship. Please call me at 352-359-1133. It wants to renew my premium membership for $24 but I want to pay the $168. Please advise, i wrote an email to you a week ago but got no reply. Thanks, Pam

We'll get you help Pam. Perhaps the coffer Admin had been coughing lately and hoping that the flu would fly away.

Hi Pam,

Finally back to the keyboard...

Lisa in sales said she contacted you about this; do you need further assistance? And thank you again for your many years of support to our efforts. It is appreciated... and needed.

Hello ! Concerning the variety 'Heike Giannotti' there are two errors : the most important is the name of the breeder. It's not Velle, the breeder is Gérard Heubrecq from Belgium. The second error is about the correct spelling which your find above ! Thank you very much for your great work ! Friendliest Heike

PS I'd like to get full membership but I don't want to go through PayPal, and it doesn't work !!

Can you provide a reference for this rose that we can cite.

I'm sorry but for now we are only able to process payments through PayPal. Please be aware we use PayPal for credit card payment processing and you do NOT have to have, or open, a PayPal account.

The reference is the breeder himself, obviously he is mentioned in one of the pictures

Hello there, I want to let you know there are 157 cultivars of mine growing in the Roseraie Warren Millington and not just 50. I was wondering if I can update or HMF staff do it?

cheers Warren Millington

I am sure we can arrange for you to update the list Warren. Will let you know details.
I am afraid HelpMeFind has no staff on tap. Rather there are a meagre few people who volunteer their time and energies to maintaining and updating this wonderful website. Just at the moment, this particular volunteer has a bit too much on her spade to help right now - see today's photos. Otherwise I would happily do it for you.

ok thanks Pat I will send the list soon

Mr. Millington,

We're happy to help. First though, a clarification - Are all you cultivars listed on HMF or are you aware of some missing from our website?
Reply #4 of 8 posted 11 AUG by Warren Millington
all of my cultivars are listed here, but only 157 are in the Roseraie Warren Millington

cheers Warren

Hi HMF Admin
All my roses are released through the HMF listed nursery of Daniel Schmitz under (Introductions years 13,14 and 16). All these roses are now growing in the Roseraie Warren Millington in La Glanerie, Belgium.

Cheers Warren

Warren, I note there are still only 50 of your roses listed at the RoserIe Warren Millington, whereas you have said there should be 157.
You are now listed as the Garden administrator in HelpMeFind so you should be able to add the rest of your roses to this Belgium garden.
