'Dr. Huey' rose Reviews & Comments

'Dr. Huey' is a nice rose. I did not dead-head it after its flush to see if hips formed. One solitary, small hip formed out of the dozens of flowers on the plant. When I eagerly opened up this hip recently, I found only one seed inside it. Despite this, I will try to germinate it, although that is exceedingly unlikely. Has anyone else had any experience with 'Dr. Huey' seeds?

'Dr. Huey' surprised me and produced a whopping three hips this year.

A total of about 8 seeds, if you are lucky. Maybe a few will germinate!

Nothing came of the 'Dr. Huey' seeds. Oh well!
I have been thinking recently, though, that since Dr. Huey is so BS prone, I don't think any self seedlings would be very useful/ enjoyable in humid middle TN.

I don't think anyone sells Dr. Huey roses. I looked at Angels Gardens, but I did not see Dr. Huey listed. I think the only way to get it to have a rose that died or dig it up from someone else garden or some abandoned space.

I have Dr. Huey if you want to dig it up and take it.

I was not really wanting much, but I know someone who wanted one to do experiments in breeding, but I live in California . I was just thinking to help fix up the data base. When I mentioned that often the nursery info is out of date, someone on garden web said, oh the member of help me find are supposed to fix that up.

Does anyone know if there is a pink sport of Dr. Huey?  I have a pink,  once blooming own root, found rose that keeps throwing red blooming shoots that look to me like Dr. Huey.  It was stable for many years and then they just started appearing.  Thanks for your help.

My Dr Huey was very pink when I first moved into this house. It was also covered in BS and aphids. I got rid of the aphids and most of the BS and fed it and this year the blooms were much redder and truer to Dr Huey. It's just a guess but it might be health or food related?

I have a photo taken of a Dr. Huey with a pink flower along with the mostly red ones. I will post it under Dr. Huey for you to see.

It will defoliate from blackspot in humidity but a well-established plant, fresh and green in the spring, is capable of punching out such lush bloom it is breathtaking. Knocks out Knock-Out in the spring and has similar form and equally garish magenta (albeit deeper) color. Insanely hardy. Has gotten a bad reputation as "just an understock" when it is a decent, colorful, hardy, spring blooming rambler quite worthy of a place in a casual/cottage garden.................

So I am not the only one who has this strange attraction to Huey! It can be beautiful its practically naturalized here (NYC)
