With rose-pink flowers there is the pretty R. Willmottiae which is an erect-growing shrub with arching branches, small gray-green leaves and flowers in pairs or singly, and the allied R. multibracteata with larger and greener leaves and clusters of numerous rose-colored flowers.

A HelpMeFind member in Members Journals, has said that
Brothers Grimm KORbrogri <2009 as sold by Ludwig Roses in South Africa, is the same rose as
Gebrüder Grimm KORassenet 2002.

I have put this question to Kordes and they have replied that they are different roses, but they did not elaborate in how they are different.

Hi Kim,

Great article!

Quick question: have you ever had an example of a grafted rootstock growing from a rose that had turned completely white and hasn't affected the rose that's grafted to it?

We were asked to evaluate a bush that had this particular anomaly. In all our years of growing roses, we have never seen this happen before. At this time, we are still unsure of what hybrid tea variety the rose is. However, we do know that this has been an ongoing issue with this specific bush for a period of about five years. Because we've done some DNA studies on roses, we know about rose mutation and rootstock diseases; but we're a bit surprised that the hybrid tea emanating from this rootstock is completely healthy. Any help you can give would be much appreciated!

Can I ask for clarification please Sherry and Julie.
Is it the rootstock leaves, stem and bloom that turned white?

Lorraine Lee is sometimes confused with the climbing form. The shrub can reach 3 metres high but the climbing form is very vigorous. 6-7 metres here in SW France

I would agree with that John. I once saw the climber at an old spot mill south-west of Bridgetown, Western Australia. The property had been burnt so long ago that it had all reverted to bush. In the midst was a Lorraine Lee of such a size that I thought I had better not take a cutting of that monster. I regret that now.
I’ve increased the sizes.
