After three years I am removing my Gabriel Oak. It's planted in full sun, but it might be the floppiest rose I've ever seen. Maybe you could train it into a climber even, I am not sure. But I am tired of waiting for stems to bulk up that never do, and even though it blooms profusely with heavily fragrant blooms, it just isn't worth it to have a sprawling thorny octopus in the garden.

I'm hoping this one just takes a little time to ramp up. It does seem healthy, but the bloom size and quantity is lacking. I will try to remember to update next year. Hopefully the blooms will eventually be more than 3".

This rose which is said to be a hybrid perpetual, has really surprised me where winter hardiness is concerned. Whereas its company, a gigantic Alberic Barbier, suffered considerably from the last harsh winter, this one showed practically no freezing back at all. The plant has now reached almost 2meters. The large, double to densely filled flowers have a strong scent.They have a peculiar sort of fairytalelike beauty which is hard to discribe and even harder to capture with a digital camera. They look a bit like Mme Isaac Pereire. The plant however seems to be of a more easy to grow variety so far. (My Mme Isaac Pereire died some years ago.) Urdh seems to have the necessary qualities to become one of my favourites. Time will show.

I have had a similar experience with 'Urdh'. Indeed, it has all the good qualities of 'Madame Isaac Pereire' -- similar color and form, and nearly as wonderful of scent -- with much better health, a tidier growth habit, and winter hardiness (it's cane-hardy here). For rose growers struggling to keep Mme Isaac alive in a humid Zone 5 climate, I would highly recommend trying 'Urdh' instead. (And one more thing -- it's also surprisingly shade-tolerant. Mine get five hours of morning sun, with the rest of the day in the bright shade of mature black walnut trees, and bloom just fine.)

Why is it marked “ Miscellaneous OGR”?
