My favourite "pink". Wish that Austin roses would reintroduce this and Chianti. Even though they are spring flowering only they are well worth it. I had both Constance and Chianti side by side at my last house and they thrived on neglect and grew enormous. Everyone in our street commented on them in spring. And the fragrance as you walked down our driveway was a knock out.

I was just looking up the parentage of Prospero, and found Chianti there. One of Prospero's other parents, The Knight, has also been discontinued and not recommended except for collectors. Shame, I'd have been tempted.

My Salita has always been troublesome. Very stiff, inflexible canes...like, extremely. I wonder if mine wouldn't be better off grown as a large shrub. Has been very difficult to train. Only puts out one bloom, or if I am lucky two, each bloom cycle. I have had non-stop issues with black spot almost since the minute I first put her in the ground. She is planted in full sun on the south side of my house. Have tried everything...you name it and I have tried it, but nothing has fazed the black spot one bit. Thinking of maybe gifting it to my neighbor. Maybe she'll have better luck with it. For me, she is a lot more trouble than she is worth. I do have to say though, the blooms are an extremely bright combo of orange and red mixed together, and the form is very nice, but the black spot is out-of-control and creates an eyesore, distracting from the one or two blooms at a time that she does have. Zone 6a.

The plants sold as climbers should, I think, be labelled with the info on flexibility and diameter of canes. As a new rose grower myself (5 years) I have discovered Blossomtime and Queen Elizabeth to be beastly beauties. Have to catch the canes early to train, or forget it. I suppose the sellers dont much care about the end result as long as they sell plants, just lucky I have enough space for them to run wild if they want.

Modern Roses 12 says "Pulmonaire - See La Maculee, HGal"; what is the difference between the two; are they closely related or as MR12 implies they are one and the same?

For OGRs we base our listings on references from the period, not on modern publications. If there is proof from the early 19th century that 'Pulomaire' by Noisette is identical to 'La Maculée' by Dupont, we will merge the listings, but only then. We have currently at least 6 different "maculés" and 2 "maculatas" listed from the 1820/30s.

Thanks. Have I therefore posted the photograph of Pulmonaire in the right spot or is there a need for a new listing for Pulmonaire Boughton Blue?

I think there is an error in the labelling. Pulmonaria 'Boughton Blue' is a lungwort cultivar. The label therefore was for a herbaceous plant near the rose, not the rose itself.

Many thanks Jedmar. I have deleted the photograph and checked the original camera stream but cannot get any hints on the identity of the rose.

Hi Again!
I can't find any information about the repeat on this rose. Neither Hortico nor HMF say anything about it, and you are the only one posting pics of this rose. It looks lovely, though...how does it repeat for you, Beth?

I am not the person that you asked about this rose, but I am going to say that I think it probably blooms repeatedly through the season. All of my once-bloomers got hit by the freeze in April and did not bloom this year, but my repeat bloomers are now blooming along with The Nightwatch, so my guess is that it repeats through the season.

Thank you for taking time to reply to my question. This looks like a lovely and unusual rose, but it is nice to find out a bit about a rose before ordering.

Regards,
sally
