I'm really concerned as to why a rose that is introduced in 2017 has already developed crown gall and is showing severe markings of Mosaic Virus. From my understanding, the growers 'Certified Roses' is the one who bred and introduced this rose. Did they really bud it onto virused stock and distribute their rose to the masses like that? Is it just me, or is that REALLY negligent for a rose introduced in 2017??!!

Maybe they could have tried to keep it own-root and maybe up the price a little to keep it clean? I'm no expert, but there surely are growers out there taking an initiative to only distribute virus free roses, and UCD sells virus free root stocks of all sorts.

I got this rose and potted it in a large tub with a fresh bag of potting soil. So far the blooms are pretty but scarce. I can't really give this rose a fair review because it came to me virused and with crown gall in its roots that developed to the size of a baseball.

Dear all,

This is a summary of the message I received from KORDES ROSEN, regarding HT ‘Isabel de Ortíz’ (Reimer Kordes, Germany, 1962).

“Isabel de Ortiz is the beautiful family member of the head gardener Ramón Ortiz Ferré, who takes care of the urban facilities such as the Parque del Oeste in Madrid with effort and much enthusiasm.
That is why it was the desire of the leading circles in the International Competition for New Roses of the City of Madrid (CONCURSO INTERNACIONAL ROSAS NUEVAS VILLA DE MADRID) that she should be godmother for this new breed.”

Thank you Mariano. I just can’t bring myself to add this “godmother” tripe, but have added the basic details of who the lady was to the main page.

Does anyone know anything about this foundling? Who found it, who named it, in what part of the world was it discovered, and why is it a "False Bon Silène"?

The San Jose 2005 catalogue lists it at site K-12-20 with the notation [= Mrs. B. R. Cant?]

It may not surprise you to learn that I came across this listing because I found a reference to 'Minnie Francis' that called her an "improved 'Bon Silène'". So I was looking to remind myself of what 'Bon Silène' looked like, and stumbled across this foundling.

So many (too many) pink Teas to choose from...

Thanks for the info,

For Gary Wootton.
You have entered your seeding 'Our Kiera' and noted:
"Parentage for this rose is White Spray by Dr Bruce Chapman".
We have three White Sprays, and I think you might mean the rose that Dr. Bruce Chapman bred and for a good while was known as (Kardinal x White Spray), but now known as 'Dr. Bruce Chapman'.
It was never specified which 'White Spray' he used in his parentage. We have three named as such:

White Spray (shrub, Lens, 1980)
White Spray (unknown, McGredy 1990)
White Spray ® (floribunda, LeGrice, 1968) the parentage for 'Our Kiera' (Dr. Bruce Chapman x unknown)?
Later edit - on the other hand you may mean pollen or seed from the same White Spray bush that Bruce Chapman grew and used in his breeding. If so, does any other Australian know which one that was?

The hip I used was from the same White Spray bush (or a cutting from that same bush) that Bruce Chapman grew and used in his breeding. I shall check if the owners (Glynis and Doug Haine) of the bush that I received the hip from can help with the parentage question.

Great. Thank you Gary. That will clear up the parentage of two roses with the one question.
