Is anyone growing this rose in warm climates? I wish to grow it in Delhi( India). Our climate would be similar to zone 10 b of the US. The winter low is 2°C.

I have Rose De Rescht in my garden in Arizona. Our summers reach 113 deg. fahrenheit and our winters can fall below 32 deg. farhrenheit. It does very well. Its a small rounded bush with small flowers that seem to bloom in waves. I have not had problems with any diseases.

I had what I believe was 'Rose de Rescht' in the CA Central Valley, zone 9 hot and dry. It was sold as 'Ville de Bruxelles', which it clearly was not. What I had was very like what is described above for Arizona, a compact, rounded bush which bloomed in waves all summer. It did need some irrigation during the dry months of July and August, but so do most HTs.

Thank you for beep lying Nastrana. It flowers for me throughout the mild months. It isn't a nervous bloomer. But I Thu no it needs tine to settle.

I think your computer has been filling in what it thought you wanted to write, and that what you meant was "replying".

My climate is really hot damp and it is sometimes subject to rust and blackspot

It grows very well on acid loam flowering well in early summer then a few later on in September. In my damp cool climate it is healthy with only a smattering of blackspot.

It grows well on alkaline loam too and repeats several times. But my climate isn't hot.
It seems to grow well/flourish in Turkey.

Well if it actually did come from Iran as Ms Lindsay claimed then it must love hot and dry.

Resht, or Rasht is actually not hot and dry but hot and humid :-)

If you have one on it's own root, you only need one as the roots spread and shoots come up near by.

I live in Los Angeles and planted a Rose de Rescht in a pot on my south-facing balcony, which gets about 5 hours of sun per day. I planted it in February, with garden soil and a little bone meal.

Shazam! It's been going like crazy and is covered in exquisite deep fuschia blooms, some almost 3" across. There are no signs of pests or diseases. I get tons of compliments.

My only disappointment is that the blooms do not last long in a vase, but I am comensated by a bush covered in flowers.

Hi there!

I noticed a comment you made on the forum about Rose de Recht. I'm thinking of purchasing her and was wondering if you could tell me how the blooms last on the bush in LA (I'm in Venice) - I realize it's been a long time since you posted the comment - back in '04.

People have mentioned the rose only lasts about a day on the bush and then fades.

If you don't mind sharing, what other roses do you like that you absolutely love? I find that LA is kind of a unique area to grow these roses, bc the size estimates are completely off! Mine go gangbusters. The ones I love the most are:

Cl. Angel Face - people told me this rose wouldn't do well here but it's about 15' tall now in one year and has the most amazing fragrant smell and puts out roses constantly. I expect this year to be even better.

Red Eden - fast grower and blooming even now in the winter

La Reine - just a great bush and I don't have that many. I just had to purchase her.
