ROSE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

USA

THE FUTURE DOES NOT LOOK ROSY

PRINCESS OF WALES

Future generations may never know the beauty of Diana, Princess of Wales; sniff Catalina in the sunshine; or fall for Beloved. For a century, devoted gardeners have appreciated the marvels of delicate and finicky hybrid roses and referred to them by name, like pets or family. The product of generations of breeding, the queen of flowers could act like a spoiled princess because its delicate blooms offered a special reward. In recent years, though, time-strapped homeowners have traded their big teas for compact shrub roses—utilitarian soldiers in the landscape that could cover ground without fuss. Our desire for the carefree—no-iron shirts, no-wax floors, and now low-maintenance yards—has brought the rose industry to a crossroads. “At some point, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. (Landscape) roses will be all you have; the beautiful, unique hybrid teas will be gone,” said Charlie Anderson, president of Weeks Roses, the only major company still creating new varieties of full-size roses. The flagging economy has compounded the rose industry’s troubles. Two years ago, rose giant Jackson & Perkins, which had annually shipped 10 million bushes countrywide, filed for bankruptcy protection. Many of the hybrid roses the company created—such as Diana, Catalina and Beloved—may soon disappear from the mass market as the supply of those bushes dries up. “Roses are viewed as an extravagance and they’re still trying to shed that stigma,” said Seth Taylor of Capital Nursery. “People have a very specific thing in mind when they think of a rose—it’s full and lush and romantic. That’s your traditional rose, what people love,” Taylor said. “The single-petaled shrub roses are gaining a foothold with the public, but when my customers look at those flowers, they say ‘That’s not a rose.’ “ While gardeners may have visions of old-fashioned roses plucked from cottage gardens, their interest in growing them has waned, said Jolene Adams, incoming national president of the American Rose Society. “Many homeowners have had some experience—usually in their mother’s or grandmother’s gardens—so they’ll try growing roses,” she said. “But without sufficient knowledge (on how to care for them), the roses languish and do not grow to their full, beautiful potential. And they’re not replaced if they die.” Most of the United States’ rose bushes originate in California’s Central Valley. But unlike wheat or tomatoes, it takes several years to produce a single crop of rose bushes. Hybridizers typically will test 400,000 seedlings to find one or two new varieties. Once selected, a new hybrid will be developed for seven to 10 years before it’s released into the market. When ready for sale, field-grown bushes are 2 years old. Winter is prime rose-planting time. Valentine’s Day also spurs sales. But this month, local gardeners are finding limited selections at nurseries and home centers. “I observed dramatically fewer roses in the nurseries this year,” said T.J. David, co-founder of the World Peace Rose Garden in Sacramento’s Capitol Park. “The financial ills of the rose growers will cause a slowdown in the number of new varieties of roses that are available for sale,” he said. “Since growers make plans years in advance, it may take a year or two to see the full impact.” The annual wholesale value of California’s rose crop dropped 55 percent from a high of $61.05 million in 2003 to $27.20 million in 2010, according to nursery industry expert Hoy Carman, a retired University of California-Davis professor. “The whole nursery industry is down,” Carman said. “In 2008, sales just plummeted.” Said Adams of the Rose Society: “Roses are not the first thing homeowners think of when they want to plant a garden. Competition with other choice plants is fierce. ... The industry is going to have to change—and supply roses that the customers can use in the landscape.” Most major rose growers have gone bankrupt or consolidated with other wholesale nurseries. Weeks Roses, in Wasco near Bakersfield, Calif., survived its bankruptcy and is now owned by Indiana-based Gardens Alive. On 1,000 leased acres, Weeks will harvest about 3 million bushes this year. During grafting and harvest season, it employs almost 400 people. Jackson & Perkins, acquired by South Carolina-based J&P Park Acquisitions, no longer develops and grows new roses. Before bankruptcy, the company farmed 5,000 acres in Wasco with 20,000 bushes per acre. Without buyers, many of those bushes were burned. Once a breeder goes bankrupt, its roses usually disappear with it. Rose patents—good for 18 to 20 years—may be sold, but budwood and mother plants are lost. Many Jackson & Perkins roses are now on the endangered list. “Some will be preserved,” Anderson said. “But a lot of varieties were lost; there was no budwood to collect (to create new hybrid bushes). Most will just disappear into the ether.”

New Roses For 2012

MAID MARION

David Austin English Rose.  2010 .  3ft

'Maid Marion' at its best, is considered to be one of the most superbly formed flowers in the English Rose collection.

The buds start as rounded cups with larger outer petals, enclosing numerous smaller petals within.   These open to the most perfect rosette-shaped flowers in the form of a saucer; the outer petals forming a perfectly rounded rim.

Their colour is a clear rose pink. The growth is relatively upright but quite bushy and compact. Initially the fragrance is a soft myrrh - as the flower ages it becomes more fruity with a distinct clove character.

'Maid Marion' was the companion of the mythical hero 'Robin Hood' of Sherwood Forest.

Essential reading for all English Rose enthusiasts.

NEW ROSES FOR 2012

OLYMPIC SPIRIT

Floribunda. 1988. 2ft-3ft

An attractive rose with clusters of orange blend blooms which are quite a striking colour. Flowers in flushes throughout the summer and into autumn and the first frosts. Produces plenty of blooms so the spent blooms should be removed regularly to promote repeat flowering and to keep the plant tidy.    Nice healthy foliage and good disease resistance. The stems are not very long being a floribunda, but it does make an attractive cut flower. Fruity fragrance.

 Not very well known at the moment, but that should all change soon with the next Olympic Games coming to London in 2012.

NEW ROSES FOR 2012

THE INGENIOUS MR FAIRCHILD 

David Austin Shrub Rose 2004.  5ft.

The flowers of ‘The Ingenious Mr. Fairchild’ are in the form of deep cups filled with crisp, upstanding petals. The colour on the inside of the petals is a deep pink touched with lilac; the outside is of a paler shade. Looking at the bloom in more detail, one can see that the edges are an even deeper pink; giving a most delightful fringed effect - particularly in the earlier stages. The growth is ideal with spreading, arching branches building up into a well-rounded, mounding shrub; with its flowers nicely poised. It is very healthy. It has a strong and deliciously fruity rose fragrance, with aspects of raspberry, peach and a hint of mint. All in all, a very beautiful rose and one of our favourites.

Named after Thomas Fairchild, a nurseryman of London and Fellow of the Royal Society, who made the first recorded flower hybrid in Europe in 1720. This was a cross between a Sweet William and a carnation, which became known as ‘Fairchild’s mule’. With thanks to Michael Leapman for the name, which was the title of his excellent biography on Thomas Fairchild.

NEW ROSES FOR 2012

WOLLERTON  OLD HALL

David Austin English Shrub Rose. 2011.  5ft

This is the most fragrant of this year’s new varieties and, indeed, one of the most fragrant of all English Roses. It has the distinctive myrrh scent which is rarely found in roses, appearing first in ‘Constance Spry’, and later in ‘Scepter’d Isle’. The plump buds have attractive flashes of red. These open to form round, rich buttery yellow coloured blooms which eventually pale to a softer creamy colour. Even when the flowers are fully open, they retain their beautifully rounded chalice shape. It forms a particularly healthy and bushy shrub with many stems shooting from the base. It remains relatively upright and has few thorns. With its soft colouring ‘Wollerton Old Hall’ will very easily blend with a wide range of colour schemes, planted with roses or other shrubs and perennials. Its more upright habit makes it suitable for both formal and informal situations. It should be positioned where its strong scent can be easily appreciated. Wollerton Old Hall in Shropshire has one of the most beautiful private gardens in the country, not far from Country Garden Roses . The gardens are set around a 16th Century Hall and feature roses in creative plant combinations, including many English Roses.

Wollerton Old Hall is open to the public on selected days throughout the summer.

JUDE THE OBSCURE

David Austin. Shrub Rose. 1989.  3ft-4ft

'Jude The Obscure' vies with 'Golden Celebration' for the first place as the most magnificent of the English Roses. Its flowers are very large and of incurved chalice shape. Their colour is a pleasing medium yellow on the inside of the petals and a paler yellow on the outside. It has excellent, strong and almost disease free growth. This rose is particularly fine in a dry climate, although it may ball in the rain. A very strong, and unusual delicious fragrance with a fruity note reminiscent of guava and sweet white wine. Quite hardy plus good repeat flowering habit.

Named after the character in Thomas Hardy's novel.

NEW ROSES FOR 2012

FRANCOIS JURANVILLE

Rambling Rose

1906.   15ft-25ft

A beautiful old rambler that seems to have been popular for ever.

The bright salmon pink blooms appear in clusters over quite a long flowering period in the summer.

The blooms are a deeper pink in the centre with a yellow base.

Not for the small garden or the faint hearted as it can easily reach 25ft (8m) when mature.

Upright vigorous growth with shiny dark green leaves which are tinged with bronze green at the edges.

The late Jack Harkness described this rose as one of the most beautiful of the wichuraiana hybrids.

A very versatile rose as it will tolerate shade, poor soil, will grow on a North wall, and is a excellent rose for rambling up trees.

A pleasant fragrance which is reminiscent of apples.

Often confused with 'Albertine'
