Does anyone know if there is a pink sport of Dr. Huey?  I have a pink,  once blooming own root, found rose that keeps throwing red blooming shoots that look to me like Dr. Huey.  It was stable for many years and then they just started appearing.  Thanks for your help.

My Dr Huey was very pink when I first moved into this house. It was also covered in BS and aphids. I got rid of the aphids and most of the BS and fed it and this year the blooms were much redder and truer to Dr Huey. It's just a guess but it might be health or food related?

I have a photo taken of a Dr. Huey with a pink flower along with the mostly red ones. I will post it under Dr. Huey for you to see.

It will defoliate from blackspot in humidity but a well-established plant, fresh and green in the spring, is capable of punching out such lush bloom it is breathtaking. Knocks out Knock-Out in the spring and has similar form and equally garish magenta (albeit deeper) color. Insanely hardy. Has gotten a bad reputation as "just an understock" when it is a decent, colorful, hardy, spring blooming rambler quite worthy of a place in a casual/cottage garden.................

So I am not the only one who has this strange attraction to Huey! It can be beautiful its practically naturalized here (NYC)

It is very common to find Dr. Huey growing in older Carolina gardens. My guess is that it has survived and grown from root stock in many cases. It is a very lovely rose in its own right. I've only seen occasional powdery mildew issues but here in the south, every untended example I have ever seen is at least partially if not significantly affected by black spot.
