Dear Mr, Mrs, There is a mistake with the rose Rosa x kokanica 'Vácrátót', mensioned on HMF as 'Vácrátót'. It's a rose introduced by Lens Roses in 2012. A long time ago we received seed by the University of Luik (Belgium). Seed from different Arboreta and Universities all over the world. As in Luik they didn't do anything with this seed they send us during 2 years a lot of different hips of lots of sorts and varieties. In one of the bags there was seed from Rosa kokanica coming from the Vácrátót Botanical Garden, Hungaria, We named this very interesting white seedling after the Botanical Garden were it came from. It has white simple flowers, whit 6 petals, flowers 5-6 cm. The little mat foliage is similar to the foliage of pimpinellifolia/spinossisima. It flowers early in May and during summer often a branch with flowers appear. In August plenty of black hips appear.Height: 200 cm, large 120 cm. Upright growing. I will place some extra photos of this rose. Best regards Ann Velle-Boudolf, Lens Roses.

Many thanks Ann. We have added this additional information to the file for Vácrátót. Would you please check all is OK now please.
In the future, it would help if you place your comment in the Members Comments for the actual rose. Sometimes it is hard to link up where we obtained the information from when it is in Website Errors.
