How does "Miss Curry" differ from 'John Hopper'?

No flowers on my plant at present, but I don't recall the outer petals turning down like John Hopper's. I don't think my plant will get to be as tall or upright as John Hopper - it would benefit from espaliering.
When I walked down the row of found remontants at Renmark a spring or two ago, it was one of the few I didn't count as either La Reine family or John Hopper.

Has the found Damask Perpetual "Benny Lopez" made its way to Australia? It looks rather similar in pix to 'Miss Curry".

Not that I know of.
Another difference from John Hopper, with a question mark over it. My three established plants of JH (each with a different study name - it's a survivor) haven't been watered this dry summer, and have almost no hips. "Miss Curry", being a younger plant, has been watered, and is covered with hips.

Nastarana - I havent heard of any foundling roses from America finding their way to Australian shores. But thank you for your interest in "Miss Curry". Actually, I am seeing some resemblance in my foundling "Eileen Giblett's 15" to "Benny Lopez".

"Miss Curry" seems to have a very long and sloping receptacle - a la 'La Reine'.
I am unsure about the foliage. The photo in your garden, Margaret, seems to have matte foliage. At Ruston's the foliage appears to be almost glossy. Perhaps Steve Beck could chime in here on the foliage.
From his photo, the growth seems to be arching and lax.
Margaret, that is valuable info about the hips. Good photos side-on photos will help a great deal. Anything else about the characteristics of "Miss Curry" from anybody will help and I will add some details to the main page.

Possibly in late summer then. I am sure they would be valuable.

This rose has also been collected in South Australia, with study names "Mylor Primary", "Sue's Rose". "Miller House Rose".

I have changed the names slightly according to previous references. Not sure where "Sue's" came from, or if it is the same as Esmonds. See refs.

We'll have to check with ozoldroser.

Margaret, with many different “study names” in the one file, it might be best if you upload photos under the correct “study name”. If ever an administrator has to move a particular rose out of a file, they are easy to find - otherwise they would have to read every caption.
You can move your photos yourself out of “Miss Curry” and into “Mylor Primary School”. Just use the REASSIGN tab in the photo. I have moved one (325150) and it is simple to do. I am not sure if all of your photos are of “Miss Curry”.

Collected in south Gippsland by John Nieuwesteeg. Probably the same as "Ron Curry's Valentine Rose". On my young plant the branches are rather floppy.
