Thank you for this photo! I didn't realize you had grown this, but I am not surprised. This is not in many gardens now.

Just a few years ago Heirloom carried her now I think she is Davis only and tick tock, eh? I miss her. She's more of a shrub to me than any other class and she doesn't like too much food so she's tough to pamper. I don't have the space for her now but I would like to see her more widely grown. She's a good, solid rose.

Attention Marcir and Jean Harrison. You have posted photos of 'Lady Ursula' on Helpmefind in the past. Do you recall whether this rose sets hips?

My 'Lady Ursula' is a young band from Vintage and it only had a couple of blooms last year. No chance for hips yet. I shall leave some blooms on the plant this year to see.

Thank you so much Marcir. Someone has said that the foundling "Pippie's Pottery Pink" (pictures on Helpmefind) may be 'Lady Ursula' and there is nothing in the literature about whether this rose does or doesn't set hips. "Pippies Pottery Pink" doesn't as a rule, but it has been known to set one or two.

Marcir, Diane, AmiRoses, Calif Sue, Jean Harrison, anyone - does anyone have a picture or two of the whole plant of 'Lady Ursula'?

I have this rose, own root, that I purchased from Vintage Gardens some years ago. It thrives in this climate even with lows slightly below zero some years. My understanding when I bought it was that it was an Ophelia sport, and that seems consistent with Ophelia and Madame Butterfly that I also grow, so I would love to know if that is an erroneous understanding. I will make a point of posting some good photos of the entire plant this year.

Dianne - did you ever get around to taking a photo of the entire plant?
Marcir and Jean Harrison - have you noted any information about hips on ‘Lady Ursula’?
Does anybody have a photo of the San Jose ‘Lady Ursula’ entire bush?

Marcir writes to me that her 'Lady Ursula' is unfortunately dead, and it had no hips.

Thank you Jedmar. Unfortunate indeed.

Patricia, my plant is still alive and healthy, but I forgot to take a good photo. It is winter here now. I will look to see if there are hips.

This is a gorgeous rose. Mine has a strong, sweet scent, and I am the first to admit that I don't smell as well as I would like to. I am sad that this rose is not widely available.

I have grown this for a number of years now, and I have concluded that the blooms are practically immortal. They could be used in dried flower arrangements.
