Ross Roses have 'Ferdinand Pichard' listed (in their complete web variety PDF, page 8).

Cool. I will get around to trying it sometime. Not sure it will like the subtropics, but it's worth a shot. I suspect it would require afternoon shade though. Apparently it doesn't like heat that much, and tends to be a tad thirsty.

That's good advice, thanks.

I grew this rose 35 years ago in the Los Angeles area. I got it from Roses of Yesterday and Today. It was a big strapping thing, coarse but interesting. Unfortunately, it seldom bloomed, but when it did, the few blooms I got were lovely, with, as has been said before, a damask/raspberry scent that was unique. It may have been infected with some kind of rose mosaic virus as the leaves sometimes had the characteristic yellow zigzag markings. It had been budded on Dr. Huey in the era when this rootstock was not reliably virus-free. I hope un-virused stock can be found somewhere as I would like to give it a try again.

Are there nurseries that graft on multiflora?

I think Reliable Roses in Victoria do.

Reliable roses! Thanks so much for that Patricia! Regardless, my comment was to the original poster in Los Angeles, about his problems with a Ferdinand Pichard on Dr Huey rootstock. I was wondering if he could find a nursery that grated onto multiflora instead.

Didn't the description page for this rose used to include the following comment?

"In September 1998, the Montreal Botanical Garden (Le Jardin Botanique de Montreal) carried out a survey of its roses' resistance to black spot, powdery mildew and rust. This is one of the outstanding varieties, which showed a 0% to 5% infection rate. The data was taken on well-established roses."

Does Ferdinand Pichard produce an ornamental display of hips? I saw Margaret's photo, just wondering if they are produced in significant numbers.

I'm sorry, I can't answer that, because I removed my plant. It didn't produce many flowers in my garden (zone 9b, dry summers). The best of the striped remontants for me, regarding flower number and health, is Honorine de Brabant.

Thanks Margaret. I'm also in a medit area but believe because of the desiccation tolerance of the plant it would go dormant during the summer drought (with no watering) with no problems and then grow in the winter, when the cooler temps would promote flowering. In northern Europe the Bourbons tend to repeat better. Just a hypothesis.
