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.

I also did research on Simsalabim. I have wanted it forever and could never get my hands on it.
The word is Scandinavian in origin. Appeared in a America in the 1900 used in a magic show, by a magician named Dante.
And yes Sim Sala Bim = Abracadabra.

Funny I had some thought about how much Simsalabim pictures looked like my Abracadabra!
Thank you Kim for bringing this up.

AzRose Lady,
Thank you so much for this its really helpful.
I visited the site and found similar roses but I couldn't find the Abracadabra.

It is under Floribunda. That is its current classification.

Hi all,
The roses I bought a while back are now giving nice roses. The colors are great, I've never seen anything like that before (Abracadabra).
The one thing I didn't know was the size of the roses, they are tiny. I am a bit disappointed about that.
Can you guys refer me to a place where I can get the Abracadabra roses??
But, bigger size, normal size I would say. The ones I have are like inch and a half across, at the most.
Thanks in advance,

I love Abracadabra. She has the most amazing colors. Unfortunately, the size you are describing is normal for this rose. She was re-classified as a floribunda for this reason.. Just enjoy her as she is!!

This is also a synonym of Rosa cymosa Tratt.
Reply #2 of 2 posted today by CybeRose
Retzius had a different species in mind. Trattinnick (1823) thought it was a form of R. canina: "b) R. microcarpa Retz, sorte nil nisi canina?"

Rosa microcarpa Lindl. = R. cymosa Tratt.

The correct spelling is "Malabarista". In Spanish language Malabarista is the vagrant of the Middle Ages who juggels, basically a "Jongleur".
