Rose jacqueline du pre Does not appear to be available for purchase anywhere in the US.
Would love to have a cutting at least.

Update: Heirloom Roses has it now.

'Jacqueline du Pré' was one of my biggest disappointments in rose growing. I purchased this rose from Vintage Gardens in 1999 and 2002 and from Heirloom Roses in 2007. Every one failed to thrive and died. I only persisted in purchasing this rose since it was considered "the future of shrub roses" in some book to which I gave credence (maybe Harkness or Austin). Perhaps the clone in the USA was weak and not representative of the mother plant and died out for those vendors that sold it.

Jay-Jay, I was just thinking that myself. Considering its ancestry on both sides, I really think it should be considered a Hybrid Spin!

I've added Hyb Spinosissima. Thanks to you both.

In the description of this rose it is stated that the flowers are abut 1.5 in. in diameter. I does go on to describe the blooms as "large". I have seen this rose in bloom and the flowers are more like 3" to 4" in diameter..

Thank you. The blooms are large. I have removed the bloom size from the rose page.

Thank you--I so enjoy HMF! Don't know what I would do without this wonderful source of information on roses.
