Cecil Brunner

Posted by garrai81 Portland, OR (My Page) on

A relative gave me cuttings of a Cecil Brunner and a no-name rose.

They are about to be moved outside, carefully, as they are growing well indoors for some time now.

However, I have no idea which is which.

I looked on the web for photos of Cecil Brunner, but I just get photos of flowers.

Is there a way to tell a Cecil Brunner rose by just its leaves and stalk?

Of the two roses that I have, one has prominent thorns every inch and large leaves. The other has smaller leaves and far fewer thorns.

I could take a couple photos and send them over email, if someone could help me.

Thanks so much.

Cecile Brunner is nearly thornless and leaves are on the small side.

RE: Cecil Brunner

Thank you so much.

That describes one of them to a tee.


RE: Cecil Brunner

You're welcome! I grow Cecile Brunner and it brings back memories of my childhood when I made tiny bouquets of the buds from my grandmother's plant.

When your other mystery rose blooms, if you could post a photo maybe someone here will be able to name it.
