Any suggestions for a rose that would be blooming in New York City (or environs) in October? Would have to be something that existed in 1867. Thanks for doing my research for me!

It would be a hybrid perpetual--most of the varieties are no longer in existence.

It could also be a China or Tea or Bourbon or Noisette or Damask Perpetual. Do you have any other information to narrow the choices?

A Burbon that fits the bill is Louise Odier. Both of my plants are 4-year old, and each has a very small fall flush (the emphasis is on the word "small") that can last into November.

Archduke Charles is another that might work. It is a China and might be only borderline hardy here, but I did recall seeing a reasonably-sized plant at the P. Rockefeller Rose Garden in the Bronx. Haven't been there this year so I don't know if it has made through this past winter alive. . Another rose that may qualify is Baronne Prevost, a Hybrid Perpetual, which I think you can find both at the Rockefeller Garden an the Cranford Rose Garden. I don't grow either and cannot tell you how big a fall flush you can expect from each.

And you might get more responses if you post on the Antique Rose Forum.
