The correct spelling is 'Ricordo ...' etc. I know this seems pedantic but when I tried at first looking it up on hmf I couldn't find it because I was spelling it correctly. I don't know how Jaeger's Rosenlexicon spells it; the GroenlooF site spells it with two "c" and, in consequence, at Sangerhausen the spelling error is repeated (as with all other varieties beginning with Ricordo.

Rosenlexikon spells it with cc, Sangerhausen and Groenloof follow Jäger. We can add 'Ricordo...' if there is a reference with one c only. Yes, correct spelling of the word is 'Ricordo' but we have to follow references, too.

I understand that, but at present hmf does not recognise the correct spelling at all - as if such a rose didn't exist. Sangerhausen lists several other roses whose names begin with the same word as 'Riccordo...' rather than 'Ricordo...'. The trouble is that such errors begin to have a life of their on; the result of this is that looking, for instance, for 'Ricordo de Giosue' Carducci' in the index you would conclude wrongly that they don't have it.

Dynamite Bam!™ Rose
Just blooms and blooms and blooms and….

When you work with breeders, plant nuts and passionate gardeners every day, it's easy to get jaded by the claims of every new introduction. Bred in Europe, this rose turned our heads when we first heard of it and it's proving in trials to be worthy of the hype. Of 1,500 contenders, this rose was originally selected for commercial container rose growers' use, because the breeding focused in part on a "quick finish." In other words, it blooms profusely at an early age and keeps blooming right up to frost. This is great news for the grower and retailer, but what does it do for you? It means that you're going to experience loads of blooms, all summer long, and you can plant this flower machine wherever you want vivid color without fuss. Think annuals without the expense of replacing every year. Add extremely clean, disease resistant foliage, hybrid-tea shaped magenta-red blossoms and a compact habit, and you have a solution for walkways, containers and low hedges that can't be beat. Rosa 'Dynamite Bam!™'

Celestial Night™ Floribunda Rose
Disease-resistant purple rose with amazing flower power



Introducing a newcomer that is sure to make a name for itself in the gardening world—Celestial Night™. This fabulous Floribunda type was bred from Ebb Tide, that wonderfully productive purple rose that is still popular today. But what Ebb Tide lacked in disease resistance, Celestial Night has in spades. Very rare in a purple variety, it displays resistance to the diseases that can plague rose growers and cause reduced flower production and shorter blooming periods. With Celestial Night, you get an abundance of big, double ruffled blooms of deep plum-purple on a hardy, rounded plant. In fact, the roses are so full and vibrant, they can easily be seen from a distance. Its pleasing, subtle fragrance makes it an exceptional landscape rose. Also makes a superb addition to fresh arrangements. Bred by Christian Bedard. Rosa cv. 'WEKebtigrad' PPAF
