R. primula

slumgullion(8a)August 5, 2014

Hi all you rosophiles,

I have a question - I'm planning to order R. primula. I've read that people think the strain/clone sold by Hortico is more fragrant than from Pickering, but I would like own-root so I don't want to order from Hortico.

Does anyone have an opinion whether the strain/clone from Greenmantle is more or less fragrant than the one from Pickering?

Or is there any other source that anyone thinks is particularly fragrant?



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

You could order the one from Hortico and plant it deeply so it goes own root. Or, get the Hortico plant and begin rooting them once it grows. You should then have the one considered the more fragrant. Kim
