'Meiroruro' is another rose of which I can find little information. It is mentioned as the prize winner "Premio per larredo urbano
1 Richardier, Meilland (Francia) var. MEIroruro"
at Monza, 2012 here http://www.rosemania.it/?p=1619.
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

'Nirperfu' for today, a rose from www.nirpinternational.com in 2010. But no information on the web pages which are being updated.

David, according to the World Rose News NIRPerfu was judged the best rose overall, in the 2010 Rome rose trials.

Thanks Alisdair. Certainly is an attractive rose, at least to my taste in roses.

Rose 'Nostalgie' with, it has to be said, not one of the best photographs. However, there are lots of references to this rose with much better photographs on the internet, including this one http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.32401

If I can leap into your thread, David, our Damask roses are coming into their own following the rain we've had this winter.

I can't believe how much time has passed since I last posted  a rose - thanks John for keeping things going. Apart from the colour, your rose looks very much like the artichokes which are on sale here in Rome at the moment. Large and spherical. Here is the rose for today, Rose "Papillon" with more info here www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.4644.0&tab=1  :-)

'Pastella' for today. More here http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.37041 Pastella means "batter" in Italian - in the food sense. Maybe because of its colour or maybe nothing to do with the Italian word at all?
