Initial post yesterday by a_carl76
I have access to add references but while trying to add in the Buck Rose information listed on the Iowa State University website, the popup window will not accept the publication. This is despite already being in the system for Country Music and Country Song. Can something be done so I can add in all the information please.

Thanks

I don't know where they got the flower diameter of 2 inches but my flowers' diameters are about 4 to 5 inches.

There is something reminiscent of Rosa majalis in Rosa x suionum (pubescence on young shoots, brownich red wood...). In my opinion, it doesn't look like an alba, neither a centifolia, so my guess is that the rose currently known as 'Minette' might not be the original or (as it oftens happens so) the original classification was a bit loose, if i may say.

What this rose does resemble is 'Jeremiah Pink' from High Country Roses. JP is a found rose from Fairmont Cemetery in Denver. It could surely have been brought to North America from Scandinavia and found its way to Denver. JP in my view also does not resemble an alba. It does give one profuse flowering in spring and makes a rather attractive shrub the rest of the season. I have it planted along the property line which in my view is the best use of it.

You're lucky if it makes an attractive shrub! in my climate (french Jura) the blooms, indeed, ball to the point where you only get a few flowers to open each year and as for the shrub, it doesn't do well enough to be of ornamental value out of blooming time: the growth is rather stiff, not really dense nor of elegant habit and the foliage too scarce in my opinion.

Photos of 'Single Cherry' seem to be the same as R. pimpinellifolia 'Rubra'.
Compare Celestialrose December 5, 2009 photo No. 137267 of 'Single Cherry'
with Jedmar's May 7, 2011 photo No. 181471 of 'R. pimpinellifolia 'Rubra' in Switzerland.

Has anyone grown them side by side?

I've been growing the two of them next to each other for two or three years (R. pimpinellifolia 'Rubra' is older) and so far I have noticed no difference at all. Nor in blooms neither in prickles or leaves or growth habit. I don't know if the two roses are the same but at least the two clones that i have are identical.
