Title: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: David Dickinson on November 26, 2018, 01:58:09 AM
The Rose Garden in Rome is usually only open for 2 months of the year in late spring. This year it was open in autumn for a couple of weeks. I thought it might be useful if I posted the names and a photo of the 100 or so that were in flower in the autumn. This information could be a starting point for anybody looking for roses that will survive a mediterranean climate. The roses are laid out in a very exposed way so they have no shade from the sun and/or drying wind. I don't know how much summer water they get. I will take them in alphabetical order. There are around a hundred of them but the garden itself has many hundreds. I only took photos of those in flower.

To start the ball rolling here is 'Abbaye de Cluny'

Beautiful colour!  It will take you sometime to post them all and we will certainly enjoy them. Every year Michalis at the Zygi nursery brings healthy plants with beautiful blooms.  They are grown in Northen Greece. We have tried a few and for the first two years they are fine.  They struggle if not given water in the summer. Maybe one your photos will match his and then I will give in again and buy it.

Any yellow or orange roses blooming on big plants? I’m re-doing my rose bed and that’s what I’d like to fill it with where I’m outing oleander and plumbago and lots of poly gala seedlings.

Hi Fleur,

Looking through the photos I have I didn't find any truly orange ones. The following all have some pink hue as well as orange. Try 'Meilouvea', 'Lapural' and (one of my favourites) 'Morning Sun'. As for yellow, a little more luck here. 'Banzai', 'Judit', 'Marco Polo', 'Tequila', 'Solo Mio', 'Vendee Globe' and 'Spahi' might be of interest to you. I can't say anything about size as all the bushes are clipped to a uniform size in the garden. Photos of all the above will come up here as I get to them alphabetically but you could look them up on the internet in the meantime. Good luck with your replanting plans :-)

Hi Fleur.  We are also re organizing the side garden by  pulling out plants that have suffered the last two years from lack of water.  We are planning to use some succulents.  I have looked through the www.avramis.gr info@avramis.gr catalogue.  There are a few beautiful orange and yellow roses.  They might fit your colour scheme. Our 'Adreanna's perfum'  (dark velvety red) from Avramis,  has been performing well and is still alive. Good luck with your search.

Post by: David Dickinson on November 29, 2018, 02:15:18 AM
What a wonderful website! All the essential information  so quickly available even giving a scent rating out of 5. I noticed the prices too. A quarter of the price you would pay in Rome for a rose. For sure this would be a great supplier for Alisdair's European distribution list. If it isn't already on it, that is. Thanks :-)
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: David Dickinson on November 29, 2018, 02:55:06 AM
It's past midnight so I am justified in saying that today's rose is 'Balbo'
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: Caroline on November 29, 2018, 09:48:52 PM
Hi Fleur,
Have you thought about Rosa chinensis mutabilis?  I have three big bushes doing exceptionally well and the colour range might suit.  I don't really prune them, just let them romp away on a clay bank which i don't water.
Cheers 
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: David Dickinson on November 30, 2018, 01:28:34 AM
The next one up is "Banzai", which fits with your request for yellow roses Fleur.

Hi Charithea

Today's is different to the 2 that you have liked so far, 'Cecele Brunner'
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: Charithea on December 07, 2018, 06:51:00 AM
Hi David.  Thank you for our daily rose.  Our rose bushes from Northen Greece have responded to the rainy days we had. It is surprising  how quickly they have come alive. Our Rosa damascena[/hi] have not got any leaves as yet. Other years they would have had roses perfuming the place.   Years ago I bought a rose that had 'speckled' petals.  It looked lovely but it has not flowered since then.  Maybe it will this year having had the water.  If so I shall proudly 'post' the photo of it.
Title: Re: Cécile Brunner
Post by: Alisdair on December 07, 2018, 09:50:37 AM
We have had Cécile Brunner in England for over 20 years, excellent for cutting, not very thorny, and less blackspot-prone than many of our old roses. I think there's a climbing sport too.

Post by: David Dickinson on December 08, 2018, 03:09:47 AM
Another pale pink rose today - I am sure you will find better pictures of flowers fresher than those in this photo. At least it gives an idea what the flower looks like. 'Centenaire de Lourdes'
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: David Dickinson on December 09, 2018, 07:04:47 PM
If you thought yesterday's rose was looking a little worse for wear, here is another one that you'll need to look up elsewhere to get a true idea of what it looks like. 'Chewjackbelt' actually looks very nice here:

Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: David Dickinson on December 10, 2018, 10:45:17 AM
So much for alphabetical order! This one slipped through the net and should have been before the last one. It is 'Cherry Bonica'.
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: Charithea on December 10, 2018, 05:19:52 PM
David I looked up the chewjackbelt rose and I liked the variety very much. I think though the dark coloured ones are more beautiful.
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: David Dickinson on December 11, 2018, 02:54:40 AM
Here is "Colijn" which is darker than the "Chewjackbelt".

Post by: David Dickinson on December 14, 2018, 02:40:08 AM
Hi Fleur

Looking at the last 2 postings, I thought I had posted 2 different pictures of the same rose but with different names. I haven't as it turns out but while looking up the 2 roses concerned I came across this: https://www.rose.it/rose/rose-inglesi/golden-celebration-ausgold which might just fit the bill for the big yellow rose you are looking for? Sounds like it grows very big in mediterranean type climates. Just an idea, I have no personal  experience of it. Although the link is to an Italian page, if you like the look of it I am sure you will be able to find something in other languages on the internet.

'Deborah' is today's rose.
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: David Dickinson on December 16, 2018, 11:08:20 PM
Strange coincidence today. The posting is late because I had an Irish friend visiting. The name of today's rose is an Irish name 'Delaney Sister' a different looking rose to the last 2 or 3 which looked very similar to each other.

I love to start my day with one of your rose photos. A delicate pink rose today, thanks
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: Alisdair on December 17, 2018, 12:54:01 PM
I agree with Hilary, David! You might be interested in this Wikipedia note (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Having_Our_Say:_The_Delany_Sisters%27_First_100_Years) on the Delany sisters, who were the remarkable (and very long-lived) daughters of the first Black man to be made a bishop of the US Episcopal Church - no doubt the very popular book titled The Delany Sisters which was published in 1993 encouraged the hybridiser Benjamin Williams to name his best rose after them, though the rose was not marketed until the year after his death. Apparently Mr Williams had met both sisters.
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: David Dickinson on December 18, 2018, 03:09:16 AM
Thanks to all who have commented on these postings. The article was interesting Alisdair and the sisters sound like very characterful women. It prompted me to double check the label of the rose in the Rome Rose Garden which reads 'Delaney Sister' rather than the plural. This is clearly an error as the rose comes up as 'Delaney Sisters' on google search.

For today there is 'Dornoar'. Trying to find this rose on the internet, I came up with nothing. Interestingly though, the auto suggestion offered me "rosa dornoar dorieux francia" which is exactly what is written on the label in the Rose Garden. Still no web pages came up, however. A mystery.

Post by: Fleur Pavlidis on December 18, 2018, 11:55:43 PM
Thank you David, Thea and Caroline for your suggestions. I went to the English growers looking for some of them but they were so expensive! £23 for a bare root rose seemed exorbitant to me. My young gardener scolded me or even thinking of importing from  the UK so instead I tried Thea’s nursery in northern Greece and bingo lots of lovely yellow and gold roses properly named and with a rating for scent. I ordered 13 yesterday  - so much for saving money  - but I found a couple of D Austin roses for just €9 each and the rest were about €5 including Golden Celebration. They should be arriving after Christmas.

Hi Fleur, Y

es I noticed the prices too in Thea's recommended site (my posting in this thread 29/11), an enormous difference compared to the average Italian price

Today's offering, the first of the 'Es' is 'Ecrins

Post by: Alisdair on December 19, 2018, 09:40:50 AM
Yes, it doesn't look quite like the rose shown by the German rose firm Poulsen named Ecrins, in their range of roses named after national parks - apparently Ecrins is named after this national park in the French Alps (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89crins_National_Park)
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden

Post by: David Dickinson on December 21, 2018, 02:54:11 AM
I don't seem to be having much luck with the rose photos I have been trying to post recently. The roses look very different in the catalogues than they do in the Rose Garden. Here is a case in point. The official website of 'Eureka' shows a yellow rose, so the one I photographed must have been sun-bleached or washed out by the rain.

https://meilland.com/en/catalogue/eureka-meizambaizt/

Enjoy it anyway :-)

Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: David Dickinson on December 22, 2018, 12:11:07 PM
Today's rose is also a bit of a mystery. 'Evebicol' doesn't come up on an internet search except as a posting in a blog which may also be useful for those searching for roses suitable for mediterranean climates http://neusnogue.blogspot.com/2017/06/el-roserar-del-parc-de-cervantes-de.html. The supplier is the same there as it is of the rose in Rome but an internet search doesn't bring up anything for that supplier.

Post by: David Dickinson on December 23, 2018, 12:20:37 AM
The photo I took of today's rose, 'Everati', is hopelessly out of focus. In trying to find a better one on the web I came across this site which may be of interest to readers in Italy or elsewhere https://www.airosa.it/regine.asp?id=14&title=Regine%20d'Europa

This is the last rose I have whose name begins with "E".  So, a good place to take a break for Christmas and New Year as I shall be in the UK for 2 weeks from today. Hope you all have a good time over the holidays.   :)

Welcome back to you and your roses David.  Our rambling rose,  named by the nursery as Banksia with thorns and much bigger blooms then the normal ones, are in flower. They are too high to photograph but soon the lower branches will have  ones and we shall post photos. The rains have done miracle as the other roses from Northen Greece are full of fresh green leaves and flower buds too.

Post by: David Dickinson on February 06, 2019, 02:58:31 AM
'Korunrok' is another rose listed under Kordes but with no trace of it either on their German or Italian site. There is mention of 'KORunrok' as one of the parents of another rose, 'Soul Sister', here http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.67470

Sorry, a correction. The new hybrid I refer to immediately above as 'Soul Sister' is, in fact, named 'KORconvent'.

David, one or two other sites very briefly mention Korunrok as a cream apricot floribunda which won a Rome prize in 2004.

Certainly is a nice colour and form, Alisdair. I'm not surprised it won a prize. The prize giving in Rome is around June when the gardens are open to the public. Thanks for the extra information  :)

I think you are right Alisdair. A bit like comparing me first thing in the morning when I look at myself in the mirror and what miracles can be achieved in selfies with just the right amount of lighting and a well-chosen angle.

Another mystery rose for today. All I can find about 'Meilapiazel' is that, according to the label in the garden, it is a Richardier 2009 rose.
Title: Re: Roses for Mediterranean Climates - ones thriving at Rome Rose Garden
Post by: Alisdair on February 28, 2019, 09:41:23 AM
Apparently Meilapiazel won the 2009 Fragrance Prize at the Bagatelle's new varieties rose show, sweeping the board as it also won the public's and the children's fragrance prizes there. It was reported to have a very very appealing scent, reminiscent of raspberries and lychees - and to have beautifully shaped buds. There are a couple of photos of it on the Bagatelle's website (http://www.perso-jardins-bagatelle.net/site_htm/htm/rose2009.htm), but Michèle Richardier-Meilland doesn't seem to have put it into production.

Hi All

Lovely rose pictures.
Just a thought.
Does the type of rose make a difference to viability and survivability?
Are the old rose types that don't repeat more suited to the warmer climate?

Hi Speedozz. Can't really answer your question as I know nothing about roses. The idea was simply to post photos of some of those growing in Rome so that anybody interested in finding roses suitable for hot dry summers would some ideas of roses to consider.

Today's rose looks a lot different in my photo to the ones here http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.71038.3&tab=36 'Rayon de Soleil' seems to be a washed out pink in my photo but the rose is bright yellow. Looking carefully at my photo you can see traces of yellow and on one of the photos on the photos page of the link you can a bush with fresh and faded flowers.

Lovely rose David.  We went to Pissouri Beach  this morning to collect our 7 year old  grand daughter who has been on a three day cycling break and she showed us around the hotel garden. There were some  rather beautiful roses , white, deep red, pink etc.  Only  one had perfume and besides that non had a label.

Hi David.  The rose is lovely but I am not going to be tempted. We have a deep velvety red that is in bloom now.  It came from Adelaide via a cousin. There are 3 other roses that are getting ready to open.  For the first time there are 3 rose buds on my Pierre de Ronsard.  The rain has really helped.

'Silver Ghost' is more my kind of rose. Natural looking. All the roses I have in my small garden were already there or I have taken cuttings from clippings thrown out by others. In the latter case I have not known what flower type they were until a year or two later.
https://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.40722.2&tab=1

PS I wanted to use the word "prunings" instead of clippings but it seems I am trying to reinvent the English laguage. (Wouldn't be the first time!). For me "clippings" and "trimmings" refer to the tips of twigs whereas "prunings" are thicker and more suitable for using as cutting material. "Pruning" seems to exist only as a concept noun. Is it only me, or the folk around Leeds, who refer to "prunings" in the sense I intend, that is as a countable noun?
