Anybody have any luck with Elle in zone 5? Sometimes I'm willing to take a chance, but every catalog and book desription I've seen , except one, list zone 6 as the minimum. Otherwise I would have snapped up the one I saw 2 summers ago at Lowe's. Fell in love with the scent and big bloom.

My Wayside Gardens catalog lists Elle as growing in zones 7-10.

Mary, Is your 'Elle' rose still doing well and do you winter protect it? What size did it get to be? Thank you!

Nice. I like the sound of that. So, I went looking for more sources in Australia. Apart from Trewallyn (already listed) this one also appears to be available from Corporate Roses, Heirloom Roses and Rose Sales Online.

I would provide direct links to the relevant pages, but unfortunately HMF only allows one link per post.

(subtle hint there)

Oh and Green E Roses has it too:

By the way, does anyone have an opinion on how spikey this rose is?

I think Heirloom may not be an Australian nursery.

Both Corporate Roses and Rosesalesonline (Silkie Gardens) choose not to list their roses with HelpMeFind. (just why is completely beyond me!) If I was buying this rose, I would choose either Trewallyn or Green E Roses who do list their roses with HelpMeFind. Green E Roses has also been supporting the Heritage Roses in Australia movement for many years and I hope Australians can support them in return with their custom.

Sorry I can't help with how spikey 'Elle' is.

I had a similar conversation with Dickson's social media person on Facebook. They use some local UK database, that is rarely ever used. They refused to care about HMF. I have wrote to them on two occasions, asking if they would talk about lineages of some roses with missing lineages of commercial varieties, and they never responded.

I think its a missed opportunity, but one can't force the issue, so I dropped trying.

Foliage remains healthy during 100+ hot spells at Cal Poly rose garden in Pomona, unlike most other hybrid teas. Not an upright grower but low and bushy. Excellent fragrance
