Austin site says "Light fragrance". I was curious and checked, because this seems to be a common case when the rose is a rugosa x "indica type".

I don't recall offhand. If it were really fragrant I would likely remember. My plant doesn't have any open flowers right now, but it does have buds. Will try to remember to sniff once these open and post my opinion.

Ok, I checked the fragrance today, and I would say definitely moderate and quite sweet, old rose scent. Not one of my most fragrant roses but certainly not "light" either. Perhaps temperature has something to do with it. It is 81 degrees at present. With heat more scent is released than where Austin checked it?????

Yeah, many are like that. Some are the opposite, but less are that way.

Hello! You may not visit your wonderful site here very often these days, but if you do see this question I would like to ask how the wire structures you placed in the ground around your rosebushes have served you over the years?

Thank you,

You make my northern hemisphere winter solstice of holly and ivy look extremely dull and pedestrian. The nights will be drawing out for you for the next six months now.

This is true - and by Summer solstice there should be some nice crispy blooms to arrange.

Hello:
I am still trying to get cuttings of Grandmere Jenny. Would members of the Coastal Rose Society be willing to sell cuttings to me instead of only selling their cuttings at their auction? I need five cuttings of Grandmere Jenny and will pay $17.00 for each cutting and also pay for shipping. Thank you. Margaret Lamb

Margaret, we advised you a good while back that this type of comment is better suited as a Private Message, rather than a public Comment.

No we do not sell cuttings. Also, I tried to root a Grandmere Jenny a few months ago, unsuccessfully. It seems to be a hard one to get to take from a cutting, and I have a whole system of misting and lights and when needed, underheat. So I would not recommend what you are trying to do here as it appears you are likely to spend the money and not get your rose.

Also, for those of you that follow California Coastal Rose Society's annual auction of rare roses, our list of roses we will be selling at this year's auction (October 28, 2018) has just been posted at www.ccrsauction.com.

Could you not just graft it?

I could. But I only had the couple of cuttings that I tried to root from a person who grows it in the desert, and he had asked me to try to start a new plant for him, as his efforts had also been unsuccessful, and that was a sentimental favorite of his. His plant was on last legs when I took what I thought it could spare. And I am usually better at rooting than grafting, which is a whole different skill set.

I see. It was just a thought because it seemed a difficult rose to root and budding might have been easier.
