This rose reblooms in the fall when well established. It gives at least a nice second flush when the conditions are right.

I wonder if this is one of the once bloomers that does well in the shade of deciduous trees...

I have a veilchenblau climbing up my maple tree. It is extremely healthy and hardy. It took about 3 years before it really took off. I am in zone 5/6 in Missouri.

My Veilchenblau is currently overgrowing a Buddleja davidii which in our climate tends to keep its leaves in winter. Veilchenblau is not the least bothered by this fact. It has grown 4 meters (12 feet) high in the 3 years of its life here. And now, in January, after short, but severe frosts, the top branches still have all their leaves. (I once saw Veilchenblau at a nursery in winter where it formed an evergreen wall-like hedge.) Growing next to blackspot-infested "presumed to be Mary Rose" and only a couple of feet away from the mildewy mess that Paul's Himalayan Musk is in my garden, Veilchenblau has never had one diseased leaf, and I don't spray at all. So, while Paul and Mary are going to be acquainted with my shovel (to move them, or to get rid of them), Veilchenblau will be King of the Garage Roof. This rose can't be praised enough.

Which of the seedlings of Veilchenblau are thornless or nearly so, if any? Thanks.

Margaret, there are 39 1st generation descendants. Whatever you are looking for, perhaps start with IXL, Rose-Marie Viaud, and Violette.
Ken Nobbs bred with Veilchenblau and it is possible a few got to Australia.

I had looked at Violette and Rose-Marie Viaud (but not IXL, thanks for that one), but the descriptions don't comment on thorns. I'm looking for thornless ramblers to recommend (I did remember the banksias, Goldfinch and to some degree Ghislaine de Feligonde). They fall through the gaps in the search facility .

A Biochemical Survey of Factors for Flower Colour

p. 127. Complex anthocyanins occur more often in nature than might be supposed from the results of isolation and identification. ... The most interesting case recorded is that of the rose "Veilchenblau", which appeared to develop less blue-red flowers in the very dry 1934 season than normally. The bluer petals were separated and found to contain complex as well as normal 3-5-dimonoside, while the redder petals contained less of the complex pigment. It is possible that acylation is an important stage in pigment metabolism.
