In my Swedish garden, USDA zone 5b, Martin Frobisher flowers nonstop from early June to early October, i.e. the entire season in my cold climate. With Stanwell Perpetual it is the most reliably remontant among my 200 roses, old and modern. I am surprised to see "occasional repeat" in the comments.

In our Garden it does occasionally repeat.

In my garden in upstate New York, also zone 5, it sulked and did not bloom for three years. In year four there were some few blooms in spring and even fewer thereafter.

This last summer it had better bloom and a bit more rebloom. I would not buy this one again. Five years seems to me a long time to wait for a rather sparse bloom of insignificant flowers.

It might need more sun; it lives in a partly shaded spot, and I don't like it well enough to move it. There are roses I like better which get the better locations.

I've got two martin forbisher in my garden. the first two years they were not really convincing and I was a little disappointed, bur in the third years things changed drastically. They had much better quality blooms and the frequency of the blooming increased. Now in the almost middle of october they are still blooming a lot and threre are lots of buds to come.After all its a beautyfull rose and I'm very happy to have kept them! Eve

Many of my buds keep turning brown and never open, even when I deadhead the central flower. The plant gets lots of air and more than 6 hours of sun a day. Does anyone know what causes this and what can be done?

This could be a number of things. The most common reasons are:

Too much water. If it's been a really wet spring it can ball rose buds.

Thrips will cause the damage you are describing. They are tiny little black specs which are often observed in rose blooms. You can spray to control them, but don't expect to be rid of them...they are hard to kill because they can hide in blooms still in bud stage. Control is a reasonable expectation.

You may also have boyrtis (sp?) blight. This will also express itself as black or dark spots on canes known as canker.

I'd look at water and thrips first though. Hope this helps

Hi,there! In the beginning of the season I had the same problem. After a short pause, all the blooms where normal.I don't know if it a whaeher problem because we had lots of rain in may. The rest of the summer was really terribly dry, but M.F. was really in top shape.
