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.

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.

By Cyclaminist on Apr 26, 2015 1:13 PM, concerning plant: Fringed Bleeding Heart (Dicentra eximia)

Dicentra eximia, the Appalachian species of bleeding-heart, is often confused with Dicentra formosa, the Pacific Coast species, and Dicentra formosa and hybrids with Dicentra formosa are often sold as Dicentra eximia. The difference is in the flower shape. Dicentra eximia has slender flowers with longer and more recurved outer petal tips, while Dicentra formosa has fatter flowers with short and less recurved petal tips. Dicentra eximia is also a little more tolerant of hot and humid temperatures.
