Initial post 13 AUG 18 by happymaryellen
I planted my new dawn in March 2016. It has grown like crazy! Last year in spring I got a full flush of blooms. This year I got a full flush blooms in spring. But it doesn’t seem to continue blooming. I am deadheading it, and doing so properly down to five leaves. I also have gotten a Normas amount of growth coming off of it, it’s extremely leggy. So the question I have is, is it too soon for me to expect to bloom all season long?
It is extremely healthy and happy and green, almost no disease, just a little bit of mildew lately. I live in Northern California I am in 100% full sun, and I’ve been fertilizing every three weeks with Max sea 16 1616 Any thoughts?

I have only been getting a big spring flush also! I've had several people tell me that they might have reverted back to Dr. W. Van Fleet. But I have a total of 16 from two vendors so that seems like a lot to all revert back. I'm very curious to see if this fall will have any blooms from the second vendor's, which are younger.

There is usually a good spring flush here then another scat of flower from August into September. This year was unusually hot and dry and so far there have been no second flush although it has put on plenty of new growth. Maybe extra watering could be the answer.

Tell me about it.... my history with this perplexing rose here in England goes back 20 years... I bought 2 in the 1990's, the first grew 20 foot with no rebloom... I then bought a 2nd rose during September one year, from a garden centre, where it was in bloom, so I knew I had the repeat type, but in the garden it once again grew 20 foot and didn't repeat... 10 years ago I bought yet another for my current garden, from Peter Beales… no rebloom... I met the late Mr Beales a year or so before he died and told him about it, that all these ND's seem to revert to Dr Van Fleet when you plant them... he couldn't understand it and offered to replace my rose, but I gave up by then, and I'm now finished with New Dawn...

I can only hope you get some rebloom at some point.. I found it too frustrating...

Isn't 'Dr. W. Van Fleet' larger flowering than 'New Dawn'? My plant is only 5 years old growing 4M up into a cut leaved elder tree. If they revert surely that would happen gradually, not the whole plant change at once?

I wouldn't know about that Andrew, as far as I know, if it's a once bloomer it's Van Fleet but if it repeats it's New Dawn... If one buys it as New Dawn, and if it's to do with time or watering, then how many years do you have to wait before it gets into a rebloom cycle? that's what I would like to know... to be honest, I probably didn't go beyond 3 seasons with any of mine... I felt that was long enough, and I only deadheaded... let's see if Lavender Lace's roses rebloom this year...

Everything rebloomed immediately after all the rain a month ago but not a single bud on the New Dawns. We can have blooms to early December though so will report back if anything changes.

Thanks for keeping in touch about this.... I feel I'm shouting through a loud hailer, but if there's anyone in the world out there, who has a New Dawn that repeats... please sign in and tell us about it, because I'm dying to know ….

I'm going to check out a couple I know of in my local area, and see what they're doing...

There are photos on the hmf file taken in September, October, November in the northern hemisphere; so their plants re-bloom. I donated mine elsewhere because it was so prickly, and I can't recall what it did. It's a survivor rose in our Mediterranean climate.

Yes Margaret it's certainly tough, I moved a fair sized plant a few years ago and never cut it back at all, planted it to grow in an elder tree, it didn't turn a hair just kept on growing. I used to get flowers in September but haven't for the last few years.
Some of the northern hemisphere pictures have been posted in the winter months, some members might not have posted them at the actual time of flowering.

Hi Marlorena, assuming this is still of interest to you, I got a top-grafted weeping standard plant of New Dawn from Beales in 2014. I garden in containers on a patio and quickly realised it was not suitable (in fact, it was a hazard!) in that space. So after it bloomed I planted it in the ground, on an island that belongs to the river-side building where I live. The soil is poor, hard and gravelly; I never fed it and it was really planted too close to an ash tree. The stake also did not hold, so it spent much of its life on the island leaning on one side. I hardly ever watered it, pruned it, or dead-headed it. Mostly I forgot about it, being half hidden by the ash. In those conditions it never has spectacular blooming in spring/early summer, but it's always had some flowers in the autumn. Nothing to write home about, but still. My conclusion is either that top grafted specimens of New Dawn rebloom more readily, or that poor soil restrains green, vigorous growth, and encourages rebloom. I have just potted this up again and am training it over the arbour of a bench, as the flooding this winter washed the soil away and left it with almost entirely exposed roots and lying completely flat. We'll see what rebloom I'll get in the conditions (being positioned close to a north-facing wall, probably not much).
PS: I have just checked some past HMF comments on this rose and I gather that not deadheading might have helped with the second flush; this is because in wichurana roses 'new buds grow very closely behind the spent flowers', so one should be 'Careful not to prune off the not yet fully developed buds immediately behind the just bloomed flowers' when deadheading. This was advice from the now passed away owner of Azalea House Flowering Shrub Farm (NY).

Hamanasu…. thanks for getting back about this.. always interesting to me... at least you know your rose reblooms somewhat.. and you've confirmed something to me that I noticed in 'Alexandre Girault'... I found that when I deadheaded it immediately after flowering and pruned it back, ready for next season, I did not get any rebloom whatsoever... one year I decided not to touch it after flowering, and it continued reblooming into autumn... not huge amounts but more than just sporadic.. the downside is that the plant looks a huge untidy mess...
So it seems you have confirmed, via the late owner of Azalea House, that it's best not to prune back the laterals too hard at midsummer... something that I was all too inclined to do...

This is good to know... thanks again Hamanasu… let us hope we have a good year for our roses... whatever happened to winter?...

My first ten grew to twenty feet extremely fast too, but has since slowed down. Andrew might have a good point about the extra watering as we are usually hot, humid, but quite dry. However, we just received seven inches of rain after our usual drought conditions. So hopefully that will be the push that it needs for a fall bloom!

A plant growing in the village in a very dry position has put on hardly any growth and isn't re-flowering. My own 'New Dawn' put on a lot of new growth thanks to some irrigation during the hot dry summer, it shows no sign of re-flowering either. Others have had a good second flush, 'Rose de Rescht', 'Agnes', 'Jacques Cartier' and 'Quatre Saisons Blanc Mousseux' have all done well although 'Duchess of Portland' hasn't even tried. Others, Rosa cinnamomea Plena and the Dunwich Rosa are unexpectedly having another go.

Sounds like you have lots of blooms today also Andrew! I should have mentioned that I do irrigate, so it wasn't like mine were totally neglected to begin with. Though I do think that New Dawn can certainly tolerate neglect! Blooming seems to be another matter.

Beautiful picture. I was wondering if you remember what the scent of this rose is like. Is it like old roses, fruit, tea, or something else?

you're welcome. Sadly, this looks to be one of so many that will not be available anywhere in the US after Vintage Gardens closes up shop.

It may not even be available now in the US. I bought one from Vintage, but the provenance is sadly lacking. The id seems to be no more than a guess. From what I've seen so far it does not seem to fit the historical descriptions. For one thing it would be quite a stretch to call any of its flowers lemon yellow. The blooms look white with perhaps a touch of creme, but there ain't no yellow! Not even when the flowers first open, whether in full sun or shade.

The roses named Alberic Barbier, La perle and Francois Foucard I bought or I have seen somewhere else seem to be the same roses - in my Rosenpark Reinhausen they ARE the same.

I have the version of François Foucard that Vintage sold. It has red stamens. They are yellow on my version of La Perle.
