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'

Bred in France 1906

Royal Horticultural Society Award Of Garden Merit.1993

AVAILABLE FROM NOVEMBER 2011

ROSE OF THE WEEK

One of the most common requests we have is to suggest climbing roses that will grow on a North wall .  Over the next few weeks we will highlight all  the climbers we have  that will  tolerate a Northern aspect.

However you have to accept a simple golden rule.

"More Sun, More Flowers"

TEASING GEORGIA

(Rose Of The Week)

English Rose Shrub/Climber David Austin 1998.  5ft plus.

A yellow rose of great beauty and value. The flowers are particularly attractive with the central petals in the form of a rich, deep yellow cup and the outer petals falling back and fading to palest yellow. A lovely medium to strong Tea Rose fragrance. Altogether a most reliable and excellent variety that is hardy, extremely healthy and repeat flowers well.  A very refined rose. It can also be grown as a first class short climber which will climb to about 8ft and also grow on a North wall. Shade tolerant. Named for Mr.Ulrich Meyer, after his wife Georgia.

Winner in 2000 of the Henry Edland Medal for the Best Scented Variety in the RNRS trials.  Also won the best variety at the Pencoed Trials in South Wales where the roses are never sprayed.

 TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES

English Rose Shrub/Climber David Austin

1998..  4ft plus

Large fragrant flowers of bright crimson colouring. They are of a nice, deeply cupped shape in the early stages; the petals turning back to give a less formal but still attractive flower. Healthy dark green foliage. It has a lovely Old Rose fragrance. It can also be grown as a short climber and will probably reach 8 or 9ft. Very useful as it can also tolerate a North wall situation.

Named after the character from Thomas Hardy's novel.

THE GENEROUS GARDENER

English Rose Shrub/Climber David Austin

2003.  5ft plus

A charming rose with lovely soft glowing pink blooms shading to palest pink on the outer petals.  When the petals open they expose numerous stamens, providing an almost water-lily like effect. An extremely healthy rose with a delicious fragrance of musk and myrrh. One of the healthiest of the English rose which can also be grown as a climber. Will also cope with a North wall and shade. This lovely rose was named to mark the seventy fifth anniversary of the National Gardens Scheme.

NEW ROSES FOR 2012

CITY OF YORK

Rambling Rose. 1945.   15ft.

This lovely old Rambler has been around a while, but we have included it in our Rambler section as we have had so many requests for it as it is considered to be one of the best of the repeat ramblers. Most ramblers are only summer flowering, but this is one of the few that repeat well. It produces large clusters of creamy white blooms with attractive yellow centres, plus quite a good perfume for a rambler. Leathery glossy green foliage which has excellent disease resistance. A very versatile rose as it can be grown up trees, is shade tolerant, can be grown on any aspect including a North wall and will cope with poor soils.

Won an American Rose Society Gold Medal in 1950

Bred by Tantau. Germany 1939-1945. There are some date differences of opinion regarding this rose.

AVAILABLE FROM NOVEMBER 2011

ROSE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

JAPAN

ROSES ARE RED....VIOLETS ARE BLUE

(Not Any More)

Starting in early November, the Japanese firm Suntory will for the first time introduce its blue rose APPLAUSE in North America. With nearly 100% blue-pigmented petals, APPLAUSE is the world’s first blue rose, a technically sophisticated flower with a delicate blue color.

APPLAUSE captivated the international audience when it first went on sale in Tokyo in 2009. Suntory said the flower will make an exquisite gift for special occasions including proposals, anniversaries and birthdays. It will be sold in North America at select florists.

Roses have been growing for at least 5,000 years and have long been objects signifying desire and romance. However because roses lack the plant pigment delphinidin, which gives a blue coloring, a naturally occurring blue rose is impossible. Despite the tens of thousands of varieties of roses that have been created through traditional rose breeding, achieving a blue rose had still remained out of reach. Redefining the impossible

Suntory embarked on research with the aim of developing a blue rose in 1990 with their Australian subsidiary, Florigene, now Suntory Flowers. Success was finally achieved in 2004 after introducing a gene for blue pigment from a pansy. In 2009, after nearly two decades of research and developmental work, sales of the blue rose began for the first time.

Suntory said it selected the name APPLAUSE as the name for its blue rose as a symbol of congratulations for those whose dreams have come true, as well as of encouragement for those pursuing a dream, whatever it may be.
