Is Laguna completely infertile, or why doesn’t it have any listed descendants? No hips in any of the pics, either. Quite puzzling.

I have several Laguna climbers along south facing wall. The blooms are among my favorite in terms of form and fragrance. These bushes survived harsh spring weather over 4 years 2013 to 2016 but the weather did reduce blooming. The leaves are glossy and resist leaf disease; thorns are sharp. One of the best of the Kordes roses that I grow.

Introduced in 1994. USA patent in 2006. (sigh)

There is probably nothing we can do about it, but I do deplore the way European breeders manipulate our (American) patent laws.

I cannot see any manipulation, but a closer look at those dates might help you.

Thank you. That does make a little more sense.

There is now in the USA a European rose named 'Karl Ploberger', a very nice yellow shrub, which seems to be gaining popularity among gardeners. So far, it is not patented in the USA, according to the HMF entry. So soon as it becomes more popular in North America, it no doubt will be. So, instead of waiting the usual, and quite reasonable, 20 years to propagate a favorite rose, one sometimes has to wait 25 or 30 years from the time of introduction into the North American market

Very free flowering, healthy and vigorous in southern Sweden. Stands out among many climbers.
