I asked Ralph Moore why he never used this one. He said he never cared for it.

Curious. It is the healthiest and all-around best OGR here.

It surprised me too. Later in life he did use "Gabrielle Noyelle'. Go figure.

Gabriel looks like a nice rose. I guess the yellow blush I noticed helped be unpink. Also good to know it passes down repeat.

I am going to put Salet pollen on Oakington Ruby, the seedlings will be crap- but if the China is homozygous for carotene decomposing enzymes, maybe a few of the f1 and f2 will have yellow. It would be interesting.

I live in zone 6, ten miles north of Boston on the ocean (in a small city). I have grown Salet in a shaded area for four years now and have never seen any winter dieback - no damage to the canes at all, not even at the very tips. I strongly suspect this rose is hardy north of zone 6, probably by more than one zone.

I've grown 'Salet', a Moss, for over three years and I can say without doubt that for a repeating Moss or a Perpetual Moss if you please, my plants have produced an awful lot of clear pink blossoms in the spring and again in the fall with a few wonderful blooms spread out in between (I feed heavily with organics). Admittedly the mossing is light, but the fragrance is wonderful and on the sweet side. The foliage is a bright green and suffers very little from black spot, I would say that less then 25 percent of the foliage is affected, and if you have a spray program, you should have little to no black spot (BS). Please note, I spray VERY little-- and when I do, its during the winter and then again in the spring and after that only when or if needed. I will use a light mixture of Phyton 27 as a drench (5.5 percent solution of copper). BS is not stranger in my garden; I have many plants that really suffer from this disease, however 'Salet' is not one of them. To make a long story short, I really would not be without this wonderful rose; 'Salet' will always have a place in my garden.

Birmingham, Alabama

When it blooms, the scent is to die for.  Other than that, it is disease-ridden.  The canes have a graceful shape, which is good since they're bare most of the time.  I have tried pegging to encourage blooms, doesn't seem to be working.  Very stingy bloomer.
