The snow finally melted here in Vermont where Spring is taking her time. I am so very pleased to report that my Leonardo da Vinci made it through our zone 5 winter--its first here--with flying colors. Canes are green to the tip with buds already coming out, also, right to the tip. Amazing!

Red Leonardo da Vinci balls very bad in the Dutch wet climate, as I saw in the Rosarium of Winschoten. Does Leonardo da Vinci itself ball too.
On some photo's some petals are turning brown, but I didn't see balled flowers on HMF and no comment about that issue.

Jay-Jay...

I updated the rose page for 'Red Leonardo da Vinci' to indicate that the rose balls in wet weather. Often sports are weaker plants that the rose they sported from, so I was reluctant to add this information to 'Leonardo da Vinci'. Maybe someone else can report their experience with this rose.

Smiles,
Lyn

Hi Lyn, there had to be a "?" at the end of this line: "Does Leonardo da Vinci itself ball too." (I forgot the "?")
So it was a question towards the HMF community, just like you suggested.
I hope that someone experienced with growing Leonardo da Vinci in a wet climate will react.

"On the description page for this rose, it says both "armed with thorns / prickles" and "thornless (or almost)". Which is true?"



I've just thought the same.

I have a LdV and just went out in the garden and took some pics of the canes. You can judge whether it is thornless or not.;)

If you read the MEMBER COMMENTS on the rose page, you will see that someone else has already asked this question. On the registration, it says, "some prickles". If you look at the patent, it says, ""numerous prickles". One of them is right.

Hi Carolyn......

The answer, for me, is "I really don't know". It depends on whether you look at the description in Modern Roses 12 which says "some prickles" or if you look at the patent which says "numerous prickles". One of them is right. ...'o)

Smiles,
Lyn
