Rose Plant Name

David Austin Roses names its roses
Rosa 'Cultivar Name/ Introduced Name' (Registration Name or Breeder's Name - AUScerise is AUS for Breeder Code and cerise is the name). The 'Cultivar Name' is used by the public to buy that Rose and the Registration Name is used by the Trade to buy that Rose. Help Me Find will identify the retail name used from the Registration Name used on the label. See the RHS classification system, comment row in England's Rose and Rosa 'Wildfire'.

Rosa 'Silver Ghost' - Class 1a

(Syn.
Rosa 'Escimo',
Rosa 'KO 91/2527-09')

Bred by W. Kordes & Sons (Germany, 1991).

Introduced in Germany by W. Kordes' Söhne (Retail) in 2006 as 'Escimo'.

Introduced in Canada by Palatine Roses in 2007 as 'Escimo'.

KORmifari is the Registration Name.

Common Name

Rose

Soil

Roses prefer acidic soil of pH 6.5 (sand) but will tolerate alkaline soils up to pH 7.5 (chalk). Mix 25 litres farmyard manure, or pulverized tree bark with bone meal, in soil before planting. Broadcast rose fertilizer in early Spring.

Sun Aspect

Full Sun - continuous, direct exposure to 6 hours or more of sunlight per day.

Soil Moisture

Moist - Soil is moist without being soggy because the texture of the soil allows excess moisture to drain away. Most plants like about 1 inch of water per week. Amending your soil with compost will help improve texture and water holding or draining capacity. A 3 inch layer of mulch will help to maintain soil moisture and studies have shown that mulched plants grow faster than non-mulched plants.

Introduction with Rose Care from Crocus, which is also lower down in this table.

WISLEY WISLEY Rose Classification System has been created due to this:-
David Austin Roses names its roses
Rosa 'Cultivar Name/ Introduced Name'
(Registration Name or Breeder's Name - AUScerise is AUS for Breeder Code
and cerise is the name).
The 'Cultivar Name' is used by the public to buy that Rose
and the Registration Name is used by the Trade to buy that Rose.
Help Me Find will identify the retail name used from the Registration Name used on the label.
See the RHS classification system, comment row in England's Rose and Rosa 'Wildfire'.
Note the confusion for the public
by a grower growing a yellow Rosa 'Mermaid' in 2009 and
a different pink and white Rosa 'Mermaid' in 2014 with
signwriting readability problems for the public of Rosa 'Simply The Best'.
It is also lower down in this table.

MODERN SHRUB ROSE TYPE SHAPE
(o)1 Recur Large-Flo - Recurrent Large-Flowered
1a Modern Shrub Roses. Peter Beales Roses are split into the following not officially recognised World Federation of Rose Societies Rose Classes: "There are four main groups of rose.

  • 1a Bush and Shrub roses tend to be about as wide as they are tall and are perfect for growing in borders or as large specimen plants.
  • 14a Climbing roses grow up to around 2m (6ft) to 3m (12ft), can repeat flower and tend to flower on the current years growth. They are great for growing up pergolas and arches.
  • 12a Rambling roses can grow up to 10m (40ft) and tend to flower on the previous years growth and their size and vigor lends themselves to covering large areas such as dead trees and unsightly buildings.
  • 3a Ground covering roses tend to "scramble" low and are perfect for covering low fences and for cascading along the ground."

Modern Roses: 19a English Roses - David C.H. Austin OBE
(born 1926) is a rose breeder and writer who lives in Shropshire,
England. His emphasis is on breeding roses with the character and
fragrance of Old Garden Roses (Gallicas, Damasks, Alba roses, etc.)
but with the repeat-flowering ability and wide colour range of
modern roses such as Hybrid Teas and Floribundas. Though Austin's
roses are not officially recognised as a separate class of roses by,
for instance, the Royal National Rose Society or the American Rose
Society, they are nonetheless commonly referred to by rosarians,
at nurseries, and in horticultural literature as 'English Roses'

Index of Roses from RHS garden in Wisley in last table on the right

David Austin Rose Nursery Limited, Bowling Green Lane, Albrighton, Wolverhampton. WV7 3HB (Tel: 01902 376300, Email retail@davidaustinroses.com. Web site www.davidaustinroses.com) grows over 900 varieties of rose and has an extensive rose encyclopedia.

"We believe that diversity is important. It's our philosophy to maintain a comprehensive list of roses, to encourage as many different varieties as possible to remain part of England's great gardening heritage.
However, with such a long list to choose from, it's not surprising that many of our customers say to us: 'You're the experts - you choose!'. So, although there are very many excellent roses for the situations listed, this section of our site suggests just four outstanding varieties of English Roses. They are all very highly recommended - easy to grow, healthy and reliable.

Small shrubs

  • Charlotte
  • Exquisite, cup-shaped flowers of medium size. Very hardy with bushy, upright growth.
  • Darcey Bussell
  • Free-flowering, producing beautiful rosettes. Pleasing, fruity fragrance. Very healthy.
  • Sophy's Rose
  • Lovely, broad, flat blooms. Upright habit. Exceptionally healthy and free-flowering.
  • The Alnwick® Rose
  • Beautifully-formed rosettes produced freely. Reliable, healthy and easy to care for.

Medium shrubs

  • Gentle Hermione
  • Charming blush pink blooms produced freely. Strong old rose scent with hints of myrrh. Very healthy.
  • Lady Emma Hamilton
  • A healthy, free-flowering shrub with bright tangerine-orange flowers. Strong, fruity fragrance.
  • Strawberry Hill
  • Beautiful cupped rosettes with a strong, delicious myrrh and honey fragrance. A superb shrub.
  • William Shakespeare 2000
  • Our most popular crimson. Traditional, quartered rosettes with an old rose scent.

Large shrubs

  • Claire Austin
  • Creamy-white blooms with an outstanding fragrance: myrrh, meadowsweet and vanilla.
  • Golden Celebration
  • A magnificent shrub rose producing large, deliciously fragrant blooms. Great all-round performer.
  • Jubilee Celebration
  • Wonderful, reliable shrub rose. Many scented two-tone blooms. Superb for cutting.
  • Port Sunlight
  • Apricot rosettes with a rich tea fragrance. Vigorous, upright growth. Exceptionally healthy.

For large pots and containers

  • Anne Boleyn
  • Warm pink rosettes. Reliable and easy to grow. A beautiful rose with bushy growth.
  • Benjamin Britten
  • Vibrant blooms with an intensely fruity fragrance: hints of wine and pear drops.
  • Grace
  • Many apricot rosettes produced freely. Also ideal for the front of a border.
  • Munstead Wood
  • Wonderful dark crimson with a compact habit. Position where it may be admired.

For fragrance

  • Gertrude Jekyll
  • A very strong, rich and perfectly balanced old rose fragrance.
  • Jude the Obscure
  • Strong, fruity fragrance with hints of guava and sweet white wine.
  • Lady Emma Hamilton
  • A strong fruity fragrance with hints of pear, grapes and citrus fruits.
  • Scepter'd Isle
  • Many cupped blooms with golden stamens. Powerful myrrh scent.

Roses for partial shade (at least 4-5 hrs of sun each day)

  • Grace
  • Masses of apricot rosettes on a branching shrub. Excellent garden shrub.
  • Wildeve
  • Distinctly-quartered pale pink rosettes. Fresh fragrance. Strong, healthy growth.

"Please note that we strongly recommend that Bare-Root Standard Roses planned for growing in borders and supplied between November and February should in the first instance be potted up in John Innes No. 3 compost and moved into a cool greenhouse or cool frost and draft free area during periods of severe winter weather and moved back outside once milder weather returns as newly planted Standards are particularly vunerable to weather damage or loss in the first season when the new root system is not yet established. Once in full leaf and fully rooted in Spring or early summer they can then be safely re-planted into the garden (providing additional frost protection to stem and flower head in severe winter weather in future years is also strongly recommended).

Newly potted/dormant roses supplied in pots should be left outside (also protect from severe winter weather by moving into a cool greenhouse or cool frost free area) in the original pot supplied until in full leaf and fully rooted before attempting to plant into their final position.

Rose orders supplied outside the UK are not covered by our free replacement guarantee, bush roses are grafted onto Rosa Laxa which will withstand normal UK winter weather but would need protection from severe winter frosts experienced in some EEC countries." from Style Roses.

Rose Care from Crocus:-

"All our roses are grown in an open field and then dug up when the weather conditions are right in October or November. Some suppliers send out their roses as 'bare root' plants (ie without pots or compost), but we pot ours up as it helps to keep the roots hydrated and in good condition. As they are dormant throughout the winter, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when you take them out of their pots. The roses can be kept in their pots throughout the winter provided they are kept well fed and watered, however ideally they should be planted out as soon as possible. They will already have been cut back so no further pruning will be required, apart from snipping off any tips that have died back. Routine pruning can begin in late winter the year after planting.

If planting in winter, choose a frost-free spell when the soil is not frozen. Roses are quite deep-rooted plants so dig a deep hole roughly twice as wide as the plants roots and mix in a generous amount of composted organic matter. A top-dressing of a general purpose fertiliser can be worked into the surrounding soil.

Remove the plants from their pots and gently spread out the roots before placing them in the centre of the hole. Try to ensure that the 'bud union' (the point where the cultivated rose has been grafted onto the rootstock, and from where the shoots emerge) is at soil level. You can judge this quite easily by laying something flat, like a spade handle or bamboo cane, across the top of the hole. When they are at the right height, back-fill the hole, firming the soil down gently before watering the plant well.

Water generously until well established, and apply a specialist rose fertiliser (following the manufacturers instructions) each spring. They will also benefit from a generous mulch of composted farmyard manure in spring, but make sure this is kept away from the stems.

While wearing tough gloves, prune in late winter or early spring, removing any dead, damaged or weak-looking stems completely. The younger stems tend to produce the best flowers on hybrid teas, so if the plant is becoming congested, cut one or two of the older stems right back to their base, which will also help open up the centre of the plant. Then cut back the most vigorous stems to within 25-30cm from the base, and the thinner stems back a little harder."

 

 

The following diagrams and "text" from 'The Complete Gardener' by H.H Thomas first published in 1912 by Cassell and Company, Ltd detail the correct way of planting and securing:-

roseplanting1a1

"Cut off all broken and bruised root ends. It is most harmful to leave bare-rooted plants lying about when waiting their turn to be planted; they should either be placed in water (put them into a flexible tubtrug and then half fill it with water) or covered with soil. The root fibres so quickly dry up and perish when exposed to the air even for a short time. Finally, it is necessary to make the soil firm about the roots. It follows from this that planting cannot be done when the ground is wet; neither is it wise to plant when the ground is dry, as it sometimes is in October.As to the time of planting, early November is the best. However, rose planting may be carried out successfully from the middle of October until the end of March or early April, but not later when the plants are from the open ground.Roses from pots may be planted at any time of the year, though preferably not later than May, since the roots are not disturbed and the plant receives no check." - (Although what it would do with a cheque for £30, I do not know!)

roseplanting2a1

I recommend cow manure, since each cow eats its food 4 times; and therefore there is no seed left in the manure.

"I give a coating of farmyard manure as soon as pruning is finished, which is usually about the first week in April. This is forked just beneath the surface. The roses receive the occasional dressings of Tonks fertiliser during the summer, in addition to the first one in February, as detailed below."

roseplanting3a1

"Dr Tonk's' fertiliser is especially beneficial to roses, and may be purchased already made up. Those who like to mix their own may use the following:-

This is applied in February at 1 pound (lb) per square yard (500 grammes per square metre). It is scattered on the surface of the bed, and then turned in with a fork."

roseplanting4a1

Use green plant twine rather than green plastic twine to tie it. The green plastic twine will not rot and if you forget it, then the trunk of the rose cannot expand - leading to a weak section, which in a high wind can lead to the top of the rose snapping off.

 

 

Pickering Nurseries in Canada sell the following roses with these suggestions:-

"Disease Resistant Rose Suggestions

We consider the following rose varieties to show above average disease resistance. We rate them as resistant to powdery mildew, black spot and rust based on our observances in our fields. Your results may vary as disease resistance will vary with location and cultural techniques. The following is a list of the most reliably disease resistant roses.

Shade Tolerant Rose Suggestions

The Shade Tolerant Rose List includes some rose varieties that we feel are best suited for planting in partial shade. Partial shade being dappled light under a sparse canopy of trees or in a position where the roses will only receive 4-5 hours of sunlight. Other rose types that are shade tolerant are most Rugosas, Albas, Centifolias and Hybrid Musk roses. While these roses are shade tolerant and will do well in part shade; all roses do best in full sun. To answer a very common question: Roses DO REQUIRE some sunlight to grow. You can't plant them in deep or almost complete shade.

Cutting and Exhibition Rose List

The Cutting/Exhibition Rose List is comprised of rose varieties that are suggested as good choices for cutting and arranging for the home gardener or for rose shows. This Cutting/Exhibition Rose List is compiled from conversations with our customers about their opinions of which of their roses are good for cutting or exhibiting.

Winter Hardy Rose List

Rose types that need no winter protection - we consider these roses to be reliably winter-hardy in zones 6, 5, and 4 under normal conditions. Polyanthas, Explorer Climbers, most Ramblers, most Shrub Roses, Rugosas, Albas, Cerntifolias, Damasks, Gallicas, Hybrid Foetida & Moyessi, Hybrid Musks, Hybrid Spinossimas, Mosses, and most species varieties. ALL other rose varieties should be protected for winter. There are other rose varieties within the different types of roses that are considered to be winter hardy if their bud union is planted at least two inches below grade. These roses will definitely benefit from winter protection until they are well established and then even beyond if there are great fluctuations in temperatures ie. Freezing and thawing."

WISLEY WISLEY Rose Classification System

Rosa 'Wisley 2008'. Photo by Chris Garnons-Williams on 5 June 2013 in Bed L (see Map below) of Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden in the RHS Garden at Wisley.

This sign in the Bowes-Lyon indicates that RHS Wisley staff created and perhaps planted this garden. Then, they requested their member of staff who creates the above labels for 5 of the RHS gardens to create the above and below labels.

wisleywisley2a

WISLEY WISLEY Rose Plant Classification System:-

Rosa Wisley 2008 'Ausbreeze'

is:-

  • Wisley 2008 is the Exhibition Name, the name it is introduced to the public by, the name that is used in retail and its cultivar name.
  • 'Ausbreeze' is the Registration Name, which is Aus to indicate that David Austin Roses Limited was its breeder and breeze was its name. Rosa England's Rose 'Auslounge' is described as England's Rose Varietal Name : Auslounge by Roses UK. So, besides the Registration Name, we also have the Varietal Name - see further naming problems in Rosa 'England's Rose' (AUSrace) page.

 

Normal Rose Plant Classification System:-

Now you should not confuse the above system with the usual retail name of Rosa 'Wisley 2008' (Ausbreeze) where

  • 'Wisley 2008' is the cultivar name and
  • (Ausbreeze) is its Registration Name ( This is used in the trade to make absolutely certain that they know what the rose is). To differentiate the 2 parts of the Registration Name Ausbreeze would normally appear as AUSbreeze.

 

This section explains the importance of the Registration Name in providing the correct unique identity of each rose.
Part of the result in searching for Rosa 'Aphrodite' has the following entry in Help Me Find:-

"Aphrodite (hybrid tea, Easlea, 1928)

Hybrid Tea / Large-Flowered, Pernetiana.  Coral-red, golden-yellow undertones, ages to light pink .  Strong fragrance.  Very large, semi-double (9-16 petals), in small clusters, open bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).   Walter Easlea & Sons (1928).

 

Aphrodite (florist's rose, Evers/Tantau, 2003)[TANetidor]

Florists Rose.  Apricot or apricot blend.  Double (17-25 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).   Hans Jürgen Evers (2003).  

 

Aphrodite ® (shrub, Evers/Tantau, 2006)[Tan00847]

Shrub.  Pink.  Spice fragrance.  Very full (41+ petals), old-fashioned bloom form.  USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Height of 2' to 32" (60 to 80 cm).   Hans Jürgen Evers (2006). 

 

Aphrodite (gallica, Noisette, 1827)

Gallica / Provins.  Red, violet shading.  Medium, double (17-25 petals), cluster-flowered bloom form.  Once-blooming spring or summer.  USDA zone 6b and warmer.   Louis Claude Noisette (1827).

 

Aphrodite (florists rose, Schuurman, 2008)[SUNaphr]

Florists Rose, Hybrid Tea.  Lemon-yellow, lighter outer petals.  Large, full (26-40 petals) bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  Height of 2' to 28" (60 to 70 cm).   Frank Bart Schuurman (2008).".

 

Using the Registration Name as well, I have put into bold the entry above that identifies this rose.
Unfortunately, this Help Me Find entry simply states that this is a Shrub, but which Rose Class does it belong to? Ashridge Nurseries provides the answer:-

"Rosa Aphrodite - Hybrid Tea Roses

Description of Aphrodite Roses:
Aphrodite is a healthy, medium sized rose with charming pink flowers that open at first into a tightly layered structure that gradually uncurls and even becomes a bit loose and frilly towards the end. The refreshing scent is good up close, though it doesn't carry very far. 
We think that this rose is likely to become popular in Britain because it has rain-resistant petals that don't turn soggy in poor summer weather. The foliage isn't the prettiest, but it has proven itself to have excellent resistance to all the major infections."

Hybrid Tea Roses are in Rose Class 4, so one can search rose nurseries for this rose to buy under the Hybrid Tea Rose section, or to look for it in garden centres.

Rosa 'Aphrodite' - Class 4 page in this Gallery provides this link to mail-order nurseries in its Comments Row.

Both systems of labelling roses in the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden are currently ( 10 June 2013) in use to add to your enjoyment.

 

Perhaps if the system used on the Rose Plant Labels from David Austin Roses, where the

  • Exhibition Name, Introduced Name (the name it is introduced to the public by), the name that is used in retail or its Cultivar Name is followed by
  • (, then the
  • Registration Name and finally
  • ),

is adopted instead, then roses in the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden not identified by the normal rose labelling system would have the correct buying information for the public, so the following also need this service:-

  • Rosa 'Daybreak',
  • Rosa 'Deep Secret',
  • Rosa 'Dupontii'

Where the Name used to intoduce this rose to the public has been used more than once as seen in the Help Me Find Rose Database, then I intend to add the (Registration Name) to the Rose Description Page Name to try and uniquely identify that Rose. This is very similar to the plastic label system used on David Austin Roses and hopefully will prevent the confusion caused by the WISLEY WISLEY labelling system for the public to find the right rose to buy. Where the Registration Name is the same as the Introduced Name, then I will leave out the (Registration Name) in that Rose Description Page Name.

 

Realising that

  • due to the current financial situation (The RHS only had just over £20,000,000 excess income over expenditure in the 2012-2013 financial year) and
  • the lack of visitors to pay for services (just over 1,000,000 visitors during the last year to the garden at Wisley),
  • I decided to take photos of all the plants in the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden and align each plant with its beds, which I did during 3, 4 and 5th June 2013 with my compact camera Canon S100.

This may make it easier for the public to see what that plant they like is called. I discovered that due to my camera not being powerful enough and some of the plants too far away, that I had better get a more powerful camera, so I have purchased a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS which has an optical zoom of 50. The bed identities for each plant in the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden will be put into this Gallery and the Herbaceous Perennial RHS Wisley Gallery. Since I have now (since 6 April 2013) retired with no current income, it is useful to spend my inheritance from my step-mother on helping out the visitors to this RHS charity.

Perhaps Fyffes, who sell one or two bananas, may be able to assist the RHS in providing Banana shaped signs - which have a yellow background and black writing on taller supports - for visual use by us visitors to be able to identify the plants during the summer as well as during the winter (when the current labels near the ground are readable and not obstructed by spring/summer foliage). Perhaps for the benefit of future visitors to aid their identity of that plant in this garden, they could add the following to each label - "Taking this label to the Plant Centre to aid your short term memory will incurr £100 charge to cover cost of putting it back".

You may like to sing the words of New York, New York as you go round the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden to help you remember this new WISLEY WISLEY Rose Classification System.

Even the Royal Horticultural Society does not always correctly name their roses using their system in the Jubilee Rose Garden, as they got confused between Cheshire, Cheshire Rose and County Rose Cheshire. They named it Cheshire but it is more likely to be County Rose Cheshire.

Further Plant Label and Path Foundation Comments

The photo below was taken on 6 June 2013 and already the roses are higher than the label. The foreground plant is also growing and it may not be long before that rose label becomes hidden. This may make it difficult for the public to buy that rose that they see in bloom in this garden from the plant centre next door!!!

The following photo was taken on the same day.

When no plant labels are visible, it can create problems in plant identification - Photo taken on 7 June 2013 of plants in the middle of Bed T - see Bed Map below.

The plant labels may be put onto higher aluminium posts, but they are not increased in size so that they be read using your eyes instead of binoculars from outside the bed.

Some summer bedding was planted by RHS staff in a bed within 50 yards of the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden in June 2013:-

wisleywisley10

with very clear labelling, which might also get overgrown:-

wisleywisley11

The above is unlike the following pansy / viola bedding, hanging basket and pot scheme involving 60 personnel. It had no plant labels on any of its plants for the public to identify the name of the plant and where they could purchase it (as further detailed in the Mixed Border Design Topic):-

wisleywisley12

I hope that the foundations of the paths in the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden (photo below taken on 7 June 2013), which take people in wheelchairs, etc are better than the paths in the Mixed Borders Garden.

wisleywisley13

Damage to which I had reported to the RHS staff in the Mixed Borders Garden 4 times during April-May 2013. Further un-repaired damage had been occuring up to my last visit on 9 June 2013; which since nothing I did or said has made the slightest difference, I have stopped agravating the RHS staff any further with my safety concerns.

pathmixedbordersgarden1

Photo taken on 17 June 2013 of lady in motorised wheelchair about to go over 1 of the pivoting slabs in the middle of the hemerocallis plant foliage overhanging the still unrepaired section of path in the Mixed Borders garden in front of her with her partner on the lawn. The lawn edge had been tidied up by the RHS staff earlier in the day.

pathmixedbordersgarden2

The small slab in the bottom right pivots about its diagonal from the corner on the left towards the bottom right corner, with the photo below showing the top corner of that slab on the right in its raised position:-

pathmixedbordersgarden3

Reviewing the surface on the paths in the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden using photos taken on 15 June 2013:-

pathboweslyonrosegarden1

I am assuming that the edge of this path is a line of pavers with concrete under them and haunched with this visible concrete to prevent the paver from moving into the bed. I am also assuming that the

  • required minimum foundation for a sandy soil of 4" depth of Type I MOT Roadstone with
  • geotextile under it to prevent mixing of the foundation material with the subsoil,
  • followed by 2 inch depth of sand or concrete
  • before the concrete slabs are laid on top has been created:-

pathboweslyonrosegarden2

This path material appears to be compacted Type I MOT Roadstone, which I hope has the same geotextile under it to prevent the soil from mixing with it. The path is bounded by timber edging to prevent the path material from moving into the adjoining beds:-

pathboweslyonrosegarden3

This path - alongside the Annual Display area next to the Summer Bedding Area shown in the 7 th photo above -appears to be concrete slabs:-

pathannuals1

The above broken slab is the 5th on the right from the bottom in this photo. You can see that 3 out of 4 slabs from the bottom next to the Tarmac Access Road are also broken:-

pathannuals2

The bed area on the right is the Annual Display Area with the Summer Bedding Area shown in the top right corner:-

pathannuals3

Photo of RHS staff weeding an area near the Honest Sausage cafe on 15 June 2013. Perhaps the same method of weeding the Annual Display Area may be used to prevent damage to the annuals to be kept.

pathannuals4

This slabs used on the path going through the summer bedding appear to be broken:-

pathsummerbedding1a

and are in the middle of this photo, thus indicating that most visitors walking through this summer bedding using this path will be walking on broken slabs. I wonder what is under each slab in the paths alongside the Annual Display and inside this Summer Bedding area? Could this damage have been caused by visitors in motorised or hand-propelled wheelchairs using them just after it rained? Still unrepaired on 26 September 2014 over a year later. The RHS staff must be overloaded if broken paths cannot be repaired within the same year.

pathsummerbedding2a

Black Labels with numbers on them have replaced the white labels inserted earlier in the month. No sign was visible stating what each plant was for each of these numbers when this photo was taken on 15 June 2013.

pathsummerbedding3

 

Realising that

  • due to the current financial situation (The RHS only had just over £20,000,000 excess income over expenditure in the 2012-2013 financial year) and
  • the lack of visitors to pay for services (just over 1,000,000 visitors during the last year to the garden at Wisley),
  • I decided to take photos of all the plants in the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden and align each plant with its beds, which I did during 3, 4 and 5th June 2013 with my compact camera Canon S100.

Since I have now (since 6 April 2013) retired with no current income, it is useful to spend my inheritance from my step-mother on helping out the visitors to this RHS charity.

Due to having a current pituary gland tumour which has recently combined with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a pulmonary embolism and atrial fibrillation, I may not be in the best of health to aid the labour force in the possible reconstruction of the old paths in this resource-poor Wisley RHS Garden.

 

It might be kind if the parents stop asking their children to pick up the plant labels. The kid's fingers tend to snap the labels if they are not strong enough to be able to lift it straight out of the ground. The broken label becomes useless for plant identification.
If the adults used their quill pens on their parchment (British £5 or £10 Pound Notes can still be written on) or created a text on their mobile phones instead of taking the black plant labels to the plant centre and asking those RHS staff if they sell that plant, then further visitors to those plants in the garden could read the identity of that plant.

 

There are 3 groups of roses, whose Rose Use Flower Images are compared in Rose Use Gallery and whose Flower Colour and Rose Type Shape are compared in the Rose gallery

Comment

"Bush roses were bred for use in formal rose beds. The large-flowered bushes are best for formal rose beds near the house, and for cutting. Cluster-flowered bushes are ideal for beds of showy colour and could also be planted in groups at the front of a shrub border, or even singly. Cluster-flowered bushes are better suited to poor conditions, especially wet areas, because their flowers withstand rain better.

Choosing bush roses is a matter of personal taste, but there are do’s and don’ts. Choose either large-flowered bushes or cluster-flowered bushes. Do not mix them – the results can be very messy. Neither should varieties of large-flowered bushes be mixed in the same bed because mixed colours take from the effect of formal elegance.

The more showy cluster-flowered bushes can be mixed, but stick to two or three varieties – avoid the ‘fruit-salad’ effect. Try to match the varieties for height – use the taller ones to the back, or the middle of a bed, mixed border or island bed – and choose complementary colours. Research the variety and try to see it growing – visit St. Anne’s Rose Garden, Clontarf, Dublin, or a rose nursery during the flowering season.

Standard roses are used in the middle, or at the back of large rose beds, to add some height. They have long been used as specimens on their own, but less so nowadays. They could also be used in groups, or singly, in a shrub border behind low, non-competitive plants to give summer colour.

Being true shrubs, the shrub roses are best placed among other flowering and non-flowering shrubs. They bring colour to a shrub border in late spring and early summer. The shrub roses can also be planted as specimens on their own and some of them make good informal, secure hedges

The climbing habit of growth of climbing and rambling roses makes them ideal for covering walls and unsightly large objects. They can also be grown on flowering garden trees to give more interest, or on an old tree stump, pillar or pergola.

Miniature roses have become very popular for patio and container growing. They can also be used on rockeries, and as house plants." from Using Roses in the Garden by Ireland's Gardening Community.

The trial results are analyzed by the Bundessortenamt (Federal Office of Plant Varieties).
    Roses are tested over 3 years and criteria analyzed include disease resistance, hardiness, attractiveness, and habit. About 50 cultivars are judged annually and more than 2000 cultivars have been tested since the award's creation in the 1950s. Roses that no longer fulfill quality standards have their certificate removed. As of November 2013, 161 cultivars are recognized.

CUT-FLOWER

" Flower arranging is an art, and is all about proportion and balance...... Some years ago, a very persuasive lady telephoned me to ask for help. 'I need a 1000 blooms,' she said, 'for a festival of Rossini Music and Song'. Until the day I arrived in Sunderland I cursed myself for not saying No; the logistics were ridiculous - cut 1000 blooms one day, up at the crack of dawn, travel for 7 hours the next. But when I arrived at Bishopswearmouth church I knew it was all worthwhile. I was beseiged, embraced and thoroughly spoilt by an army of 'Geordie' lady flower arrangers who produced some real works of art with my roses in that church. Later, when the soprano hit top C, petals fluttered to the floor to add an extra sense of unreality to my first encounter with the friendly Northeast. ...

Selecting roses for cutting is an acquired skill. Cut them too tight and they never open, too open and they last only fleetingly. The best stage is when the sepals have started to fold back and the furled petals are showing colour. Timing is important. Early morning or late evening is best, but at whatever time flowers are cut they should always be placed in water up to their necks and stood in a cool place for 2 or 3 hours before they are arranged. A couple of spoonfuls of sugar or even a pint of lemonade to about 1 gallon of water will help them to stay fresh for a few hours longer. Before placing the flowers in water it is best to remove the 2 bottom leaves - no more - and scrape the thorns from the bottom 3" (7.5cm). Some people crush the base of each stem but I usually make a cut about half-an-inch (1cm) long upwards into it. This exposes a bigger area of inner tissue and enables the flower to take up more water. Cut roses will wilt in warm, dry conditions, and lightly syringing the leaves with cold water will help to revive them. I am told by the experts that plunging the bottom inch of stem into boiling water for about 1 minute and then placing them quickly back into cold water will sometimes revive wilting blooms.

Some people believe that harm can be done to rose bushes by the cutting of blooms, and certainly if too many are taken with long stems the plants do suffer slightly, but they should come to no real harm. Try to cut to an eye though, so as not to leave an unsightly stump to die back on the bush. ...

2 or 3 carefully chosen bushes, growing in even the smallest garden, can usually provide enough flowers for taking indoors without any detriment to the outdoor display; and their scent will pervade the entire house, rivalling both sweet peas and ten-week stocks."

TOLERANT OF POOR SOILS

Roses prefer acidic soil of pH 6.5 (sand) but will tolerate alkaline soils up to pH 7.5 (chalk). Mix 25 litres farmyard manure, or pulverized tree bark with bone meal, in soil before planting. Broadcast rose fertilizer in early Spring and in early summer as well.

HEDGE

" Formal Hedges.

When planting a formal hedge, consideration should be given to any upright-growing variety capable of reaching the desired height. Bushes should either be in a single row, with 18" (45cm) between each plant or, for a really thick hedge, a double row of staggered bushes with 12" (30cm) between each row and 24" (60cm) between each plant. It is essential to prune the bushes very hard in the first year to encourage basal growth for later years, when such pruning will not be possible. If formality is desired from some of the old-fashioned and species roses, traditional methods of pruning have to be abandoned in favour of shears; and since not all types take kindly to such treatment, the choice of variety is particularly important. Clipped hedges can look very attractive, but these must be pruned very hard both their first and second year. Once the hedge is growing well, clipping can start, but if this is not timed correctly flowering may be affected. Clipping should be practised after flowering so that the hedge has time to make growth for the following year.Throughout the rest of the summer it should only be necessary to remove extra vigorous or 'awkward' shoots as they appear. Only the 'once-flowering' varieties are suitable for treatment this way. So, if you require more from your hedge, such as autumn flowers and/or hips, then informality must be accepted. Planting distances for old-fashioned and species roses will depend on the variety but few will need to be closer than 24" (60cm) and most make satisfactory hedges planted 36" (90cm) apart.

See Hedge Page for 10 Good Shrub Roses which can be kept trimmed for Ornamental Hedges.

Informal Hedges.

Some of the Hybrid Musks make quite neat plants as hedgerows, whereas the Centifolias will form wide, impenetrable, untidy jungles. The secret of good informal rose hedges, no matter what the type, is, as already stressed, hard pruning in the first year and light clipping or tidying when the hedge is matured. Feeding, too, is important to keep them at their best.

See Hedge Page for 10 Good Tall, Recurrent old and shrub Roses for use as Informal Hedges.

See Hedge Page for roses which are excellent for edging bed borders.

CLIMBER IN A TREE

Some gardens have old trees of dubious purpose and dead tree trunks which could be put to the " use of supporting a climbing rose. Also some rather boring stretches of hedgerow, atractive only for their bird population, could well be enhanced by the addition of a few well-chosen vigorous climbing rose species.

Nature does not provide for growing and flowering at the same time; thus without exception, all the vigorous tree-climbing roses flower only once each season. Some do have good autumn foliage and produce abundant hips to give colour later. As with the climbers for north walls, the most suitable, with 1 or 2 exceptions, are white, cream or yellow in colour. Size of tree should not present a problem since some of the very vigorous climbers can reach 30' (9m) with ease.

It is best to plant these roses a little distance, about 2' (60cm), from the trunk on the side of the tree with most light, giving them a helping hand initially with string or wire, until they can scamble their own way up through the branches. Bear in mind that, being vigorous, they need to make big roots. If soil is poor, as so often under trees, give them a good start by adding a pocket of good soil at planting time and apply plenty of water at the height of summer.

See Climber in a Tree Page for 11 older Roses suitable for growing up into Trees and Hedgerows.

Because the tree's roots will extend from the trunk to the drip-line from the end of the branches, Chris would suggest that the rose is planted outside that drip-line so that its roots do not compete with the roots of that tree.

Little White Pet
/ 7

"White Pet is sometimes known as Little Dot in New Zealand.

[From A Year of Roses, by Stephen Scanniello, pp. 146-147:] Tree roses, also called standard roses, are often displayed to their best advantage when planted in containers. Tree roses come in heights anywhere from two feet high (most common with miniature roses) to over six feet. There are two forms of standard roses available. One is the common form of a long stem supporting a bushy display of roses, sort of like a large lollipop. The other is a weeping standard, the only style I think worth using.


Tree roses are created by attaching three buds of a rose cultivar to a long straight stem of another rose. The most common stem stock to use is an unnamed rugosa rose variety. Other roses have been used for creating standards, but the rugosa seems to be the strongest, surviving the longest." from Help Me Find

Rosa 'Kathleen Harrop' can be grown in children's play areas or by the front door since, like its parent 'Zephirine Drouhin', it is completely thornless - see other Thornless or Nearly Thornless Roses.

Mottisfont Rose Gardens It is still regarded as a masterclass in how to combine roses with other plants:-

Our walled garden is one of the most famous rose gardens in the world, forming a range of colouring, style and fragrance that has never been surpassed. Created by Graham Stuart Thomas in the 1970s - one of the most important figures in 20th century British horticulture - it is home to many varieties that may otherwise have become extinct.

If you’re inspired by the scented sights of our gardens and want to try growing roses yourself, here are some top tips from Assistant Head Gardener Jonny Bass:-

  • Healthy root system – Here at Mottisfont we use Mycorrhizal fungi religiously. It’s added into the soil around the roots when planting and will create a beneficial or symbiotic relationship with the plant to help produce new, fibrous roots.
  • Food – You can’t beat a good dose of well-rotted manure. Either dug into the soil or used as a mulch around the roses it will give excellent results and it’s 100 per cent organic and natural.
  • Pruning - When pruning your roses don’t be afraid to get stuck in. It’s important to have strong new growth coming up from the base and you should be looking to cut out some of the oldest wood every year."

BEDDING

From Peter Beales Roses An illustrated encyclopaedia and grower's handbook of species roses, old roses and modern roses, shrub roses and climbers by Peter Beales (ISBN 0-00-272178-3) Published 1992:-

" By far and away the best roses for bedding are Floribundas. They start flowering in late June and continue in flower until the first frost of November. As they come in all sizes, however, they are most effective when only one variety is grown en masse; and this applies not just in parks and large gardens but in small gardens too... because... it is very difficult to get an even height throughout any wide-ranging mixture.

See Bedding Page for 20 widely available HYBRID TEAs for Border Bedding.

CLIMBER / PILLAR

"For a formal structure, rough-sawn timber is the least expensive of the prepared materials and should likewise be ready-treated with preservative. Upright poles or posts should be a minimum thickness of 4" (10cm) and should always be sunk at least 2' (60cm) into the ground. Rails and cross-members can be thinner than this but not less than 2" (5cm). Since the principal purpose of such structures is to provide support for climbing roses which will eventually cover them almost completely, the pattern created by criss-crossing timber need not - unless so desired - be very elaborate. What is important, in order to ensure long life, is the quantity and quality of the upright poles placed in the ground. The spacing of these poles is therefore crucial. The best rustic trellis has uprights placed at about 6' (1.8m) intervals. Rustic arches should be well anchored in the soil at each corner."

Ordinary trellis should be 1" (2.5cm) x 1" (2.5cm) timber in 6" (15cm) squares to carry the weight of the roses. A more simple form of support for climbers and ramblers is post and wire. 4" x 4" Posts can be set at 6' (1.8m) apart before attaching chainlink fencing from 2' (60cm) to 5' (1.5m) in height up the 6' above ground post. All end or corner posts should have additional straining posts to enable the chainlink to be stretched tightly.

See Climber / Pillar page for 10 Good old-fashioned Rambers for Trellis and Arch.

See Climber / Pillar page for 10 Good older Climbers for Trellises and Arches.

Climbing roses, if grown on walls, will need support. Starting at 18" (45cm) above ground drill holes in the centre of the brick to take screw-eyes in their plastic plugs. Vertically every 4th brick and then horizontally every second brick will provide the neccessary support structure. The top and bottom rows with each end column of short vine-eyes should have its screw thread fully screwed into the plug to provide a secure unbending vine-eye so that the wire can be stretched tightly between each end of each row. Then, the remaining 4" long screw-eyes with their 1" length of screw thread should have their screw thread fully screwed into the plug to give a 2" gap behind the wire stretched in the vine-eyes to allow air ventilation for the roses.

See Climber / Pillar page for 10 Good older Climbers and Rambers for colder shaded North-facing Walls.
