This Miniflora/Patio rose may be the BEST of my latest hybrids & may possibly be better than my BEST so far, the mini 'Glowing Amber'. It is also the most vigorous rose in 36 years of hybridizing. After 5 seasons of testing it in my own yard I have finally send budwood to E. Canada and to Europe. I myself have not found anything negative about this rose, except that it has a lot of thorns !!!

August 21/05 . Test results from Holland just received :
Out of 18 varieties sent there for test in 2004, it is their No.1 favorite ! ‘Glowing Amber’ is their second.

It has the same bicolour & pollen parent as my mini 'Glowing Amber' but has a much darker red. It inherited it's bicolour from my first mini 'Rubies 'n' Pearls'. The blooms and the foliage are much larger than on Miniature roses. Therefore it's registered as a MINI-FLORA !
Patent status unknown (to HelpMeFind).
NOTE ADDED : On April 7th 2008 my dear wife Ingrid lost her fight to bone cancer and passed away very peacefully.

Two 2007 USA reports, about the ‘Ingrid’ rose :
Milford Clausen of Waterman, Illinois wrote on October 28, 2007
Just a note about your mini-flora rose ‘Ingrid’. We grow around 350 cultivars in the northern part of Illinois. This past spring I purchased two Ingrid plants from Nor East.. Needless to say these plants grew well and bloomed beyond expectation. They remained very clean from Blackspot and Mildew problems. Along with beautiful foliage they displayed many well shaped and colorful blooms. A great mini-flora rose. Our garden also has a few Glowing Amber’s which is an excellent mini and does well in our area.

Anita Eckley of Bellevue, Nebraska wrote on December 5, 2007: (excerpts)
I consider 'Ingrid' to be my first queen. She is always in bloom !
“I am a "brand-new" exhibitor and think that your hybridized mini-flora ‘Ingrid’ is rather wonderful. I have 278 roses and of those, about thirty are mini-floras and of those thirty, three are ‘Ingrid’.
For my husband and myself, 'Ingrid' is a perfect rose. The colors are "heart stopping." Our garden is a rose garden versus a strictly exhibitor's garden. We hosted four garden walks last summer. 'Ingrid' was a rose that many enjoyed. Visitors just wanted to talk about the rose and how lovely she was.
'Ingrid' a gift that we will cherish. We are the recipients of great joy with your rose 'Ingrid'!

Shirley Bellows of Mill Bay, BC Canada reports : On 18-Feb-09,
I bought the plant as a rooted cutting from Brad Jalbert in 2006 and watched it grow into a magnificent rose bush.
I remember that I could hardly wait for it to bloom that first year and was thrilled when it did. I have since had to move the bush outside of my fenced backyard as I bought a new Sheltie puppy and the roses were a hazard for him.

It survived the move very happily and I just checked to see if it was okay. We have had a very cold winter here on the island and had quite a bit of snow as well. The rosebush looks fine with lots of green branches. One of the many things I like about this rose is the incredibly beautiful scent.
Thanks so much for hybridizing this beautiful plant. It is a pleasure to grow.
