Lots of Photos

ArbutusOmnedo 10/24July 14, 2014

I just posted some photos of various OGRs, some Austins, Bardens, and other roses in the Antique Rose Forum, but I'm sure some of the roses are of interest to those who frequent this section of the Rose forum as well. I hope you enjoy them.

Wonderful photos Jay of some excellent healthy and exciting roses! I'm partial to the lovely variations in roses like your Distant Drums or Pam's Choice or the delectable Disneyland. You're right that I hadn't heard of Orchard's Pride but it is terrific. Where is that available from? It's good to see a mature photo of Tea Clipper since it does indeed fade to pale, but the lovely Lady of Shalott doesn't! I envy you your Rosette Delizy in your zone enough that I might try zone pushing that one here - I have a handful of teas that are mightily babied!

Thanks so much for sharing the photos!

Hi Cynthia,

I don't really know where one could find Orchard's Pride these days. It doesn't have a source listed on HMF, but it does apparently go under the alternate name Miss Ashley which I didn't know.

My mom has a standard of it in her front yard that she bought at least 4-5 years ago at a hardware chain called 'Orchard Supply Hardware,' I think the rose was named 'Orchard's Pride' to commemorate some anniversary of the hardware chain OSH, but I could be mistaken. I saw a shrub of it available at an OSH almost 2 years ago, but I haven't seen it anywhere in So Cal since.

Jaimes Coiner, the breeder, sells to places like Home Depot, OSH, and others from his wholesale nursery, Coiner Nursery. He breeds his own roses as well as selling older, out of patent floribundas, grandis, and HTs. I don't know if any nurseries carry it that ship, but it could be worth contacting Coiner Nursery if it's a variety that you can't live without. I doubt that, but it is lovely! It has a scent that isn't strong in it's quantity, but to my nose is just perfectly light, sweet, and vaguely citrusy.
