Do you ever flip or click through a catalog and suddenly stumble upon a beautiful rose you'd never noticed before?

Today it's Souvenir de Madame Auguste Charles.

Another one added to the "someday" list.

Beautiful flowers with very nice fragrance, on a plant more vigorous than Malmaison, but with all the usual foliage issues plaguing Bourbons in hotter climates. I care for a ten year old one in the Santa Clarita Valley, CA and battle very short lived foliage, mildew, and black spot with it. Not one I would have planted if the choice had been mine. Very pretty WHEN it's pretty, though and probably excellent in the proper micro climate. Kim

Thanks for the warning!

I was afraid of that. From the pictures, it did seem like a more vigorous SdlM, which was a black spot disaster for me.

RE: Souvenir de Mme Auguste Charles

You're welcome. I wish someone still listed Pillarcitos, a found rose I obtained from Vintage years ago which had excellent health and resembled Malmaison in the flower. Kim

Is it the same as "Pilarcitos" with one "l"?

If so, Rogue Valley and Vintage both have it.

Good catch, one I wasn't up to so late last night. Yes, that is it. I grew it for years and it was healthy, vigorous and gorgeous. Kim
