Hi Marlorena! Could you tell me if this rose has a strong fragrance?
Reply #1 of 5 posted yesterday by Marlorena
Hi Erebus,
I was disappointed a little... I found it no better than medium and did not get the ''strong'' fragrance promised.. but it may have improved with age,... my rose suckered too often for my liking, so I no longer have it..

Thank you for your reply! I've read here on HMF that the old rose fragrance needs more than a year to fully develop so maybe that's the case. Anyway, thanks again for replying! I don't have a lot of space left in the garden, so I only take roses with a strong fragrance into consideration! I ordered Gabriel Oak after seeing yours (I planted it in december) because your comments about the fragrance were really helpful!
Greetings from Italy!

I hope it does well for you, I think it's a fabulous rose..

..incidentally Erebus, if you are wanting another type like Sir Walter Scott, - Scots rose hybrid - DA have just released one bred on similar lines called The Country Parson... I'm getting it next week... its fragrance sounds rather nice, so I shall take a chance on that one.. the blooms look to be larger than on Sir Walter... wishes...

I was interested in Sir Walter Scott because of the strong old rose fragrance, growth habit (2.5 ft x 2.5 ft according to DA website) and the central button eye. I only have roses with fruity fragrances (except The generous gardener but I can't detect the musk/myrrh/old rose notes....It smells like lemons to me...) so I was considering Sir Walter Scott for that reason. The Country Parson and Silas Marner are not available yet on the European site (On the DA's instagram page there's a contest for winning these new varieties but it's open to UK applicants only) so I'll wait for your review! :)

The reference "Rosenjahrbuch, Book (2017) Page(s) 25". is not correct. Baby Château is not mentioned in that book!

Wrong year, the reference is taken from a Google snippet which states 1968, but could well be an adjacent year.

Available from - Tree of Life Nursery

I bought one there several years ago, to be planted at a house in Venice CA. Looking at their catalog just now (02/25/20), it is still listed there.

It's an endangered species, so anyone who lives in the right climate would be doing a service by planting one....

Suncrest Nurseries, a wholesale nursery selling to nurseries across California, also lists it. I would imagine if you wanted one and did business with a nursery selling Suncrest plants, they could order it for you.
