1. Does this plant have extra prickly mid-ribs on the undersides of the leaves?
2. Could someone please post some pictures of the new growths of this plant?

Could anyone please tell me if this rose suckers on its own roots?

Will ask my friend who gave ma a big rooting of Baronne Prevost, she grows it for years in her alkaline soil/water. I killed that own-root when I put too much acidic alfalfa pellets in the planting hole.

Thank you Straw, that would be most helpful. Baronne Prevost with its slightly puckered serrated leaves and prickly stems is so far the closest candidate to a foundling rose I discovered growing by an abandoned cottage. My rose has not flowered yet, it was just a bit of root with a couple of weak shoots 30cm high when I planted it, but now it is producing masses of new growths including suckers and I am hoping that if it is Baronne P. then it might flower later this year.

Andrew: My friend gave me this answer: " I'm not the one to know--mine is from Pickerings, so it's grafted. I don't see a lot of suckering even on plants notorious for it. Only one I have regular suckers from is a R. pimpinellifolia."

From Straw: Baronne Prevost's rooting was wimpy on me, in slightly acidic soil, so I don't think it sucker. Checked forum with many folks who grow that, and no suckering-reports.

That's interesting, thank you very much. Dye House was abandoned 100 years ago, the rose survived growing in dense woodland for the majority of that time it also had to cope with rising soil levels as the cottage decayed (our cottages are all made of cob) and was probably almost two metres lower when originally planted. The soil here is acidic too.
I will have to be patient and wait until it flowers.

Only about 3.5 feet in height, but flowers are huge and with a huge scent to match! Very photogenic, and lots of variations in blooms, some are quartered, some have button eyes, some are like Bourbons or Damasks.

Hi,
May I ask how old your Baronne Prevost is?

He has been growing at the E.M. Mills garden in Syracuse, NY for many many years, I will inquire at the meeting tomorrow to see if the info is available about when it was planted. I am guessing 10 to 20 years?

Thanks, I was intrigued because of the size of 3.5 feet - I have always heard that this rose gets quite big - is it pruned hard back or something? I know it is very forgiving.

It may well have been larger in the past, I know we experienced horrible windy freezing winters, including those "polar vortex" types, recently, even the Veilchenblau that had taken over trellises had tremendous die-off. I am always happy when anything survived the winter even if it is only 3 feet of the plant :(
