My Experience with Rose Rosette DiseaseMy Experience with Rose Rosette Disease
By gemini_sage, April 27, 2015

I moved to my current home 8 years ago, and I brought almost every plant from my garden with me, including about 50 roses. It was an exciting time, as I had lived in a wooded, shady hollow, and I was happy to give so many sun-loving plants an appropriate home. I had chosen rose varieties for shade tolerance and disease resistance, because I knew the shade and moisture would be inviting for fungal diseases. Although we experienced a terrible drought that year, the roses did respond well to the sunny, open environment, and they settled in nicely in spite of the dry growing season.

You can see the 'Angel Face' lineage in this rose in the ruffled petals. When Ralph Moore was asked why he used 'Angel Face' for breeding, as it was commonly considered a weak rose in this part of the US, his answer was, "Because it was there."

'Silver Cloud' is prone to black spot in my garden. I do not spray and the rose recovers quite well.

An old time round red radish that is very early. Not as good as Early Scarlet Globe but quite acceptible and reliable.

Although this rose was registered by Ralph Moore as a miniature rose, it is actually a polyantha. When asked why he did not register the rose in the polyantha class, his answer was, "No one is buying polyanthas now, but they are buying miniature roses."

This Daylily is fantastic and needs to be more widely distributed.
Good Increase, well spaced branches, bud builder and a beautiful bloom that opens and closes clean. Looking forward to see what it passes to offspring.

This big time award winner (AGM 1995; FCC 1992; AM 1987) has been used as a seed parent twice and as a pollen parent 10 times. Mrs Richardson, the hybridizer, orginally discarded the cultivar but it was rescued by the du Plessis brothers and subsequently registered by them in 1980.
