Great photo, Celeste! This was, even by his own admission, Ralph Moore's Masterpiece! Thank you!
Kim Rupert (in 'Linda Campbell' Photo comments)

I was so interested to read of these comments and had a search of the <I>Australian Rose Annual</i>s for mention of 'Linda Campbell'. There was nothing. However, this is understandable as the rose was introduced in the U.S. in 1991 and age crept up on Ralph Moore's Australian distributor, Roy and Heather Rumsey, who closed down their nursery in September, 1993. It seems that we may have missed out on Ralph Moore's masterpiece.
What a shame.

I read a report that own root Linda Campbell and Topaz Jewel are crown hardy with snow cover in Zone 3.

I just checked my two year old, own root Topaz Jewel in zone 3 near Edmonton, Alberta. It is alive to the snowline. My sister had Linda Campbell and gave up on it. It might be OK in a protected spot.

Hardy in zone 4/5 Alaska. No thorns and lots of beautiful red clusters.

i am looking for the identity of a rose that grows wild, now, obviously not a species rose. It is once blooming, a rambler, medium pink, carnation flowered, needs no care at all. the bushes here in northeast connecticut are at least 50 years old. chris (i know of 1 or 2 that are left.) they used to be all over the banks along the train tracks (yes, tough!) chris

Hi Chris, you said it is not a species rose but it sounds like Eglantine (common name "sweet briar". Does it have a fragrance? Eglantine smells like green apples. Can you get us a picture? Jody

well, i googled it, as my neighbor suggested, "railroad rose" and actually there is a reference or two,,,,,,,one is the National, which informs us that roses are being used again by the Union Pacific railroad to keep people off train tracks, that was the purpose of planting them.. If you look further down the list, there is a reference to an ARS article in 1920 , that our local New Haven, New York and Worcester railroad did plant Dorothy Perkins ! If anyone knows any more about these events, please let me know!
