The flowers are smaller as this is 2nd flush. The flowers hang as if stems are too weak to hold them up. Light fragrance.

It really isn't blue. It is creamy white with pale pink in center. Full bloom is flattened. I thought it might be Sombreil.(?spelling)

Baa - I cannot believe you don't like roses. I have to ask you why not? I am so curious... :-)

Sorry cazique didn't mean to go off thread here. Your rose certainly does not look like a strong grower. I grew a rose called Louise Odier back home and she was similarly weak growing. Would love to help but think I am stumped!! :-)

Hi Louisa :)

I know pure heresy for an English garden.

I get sick of seeing them all the time, same old planting schemes with the same old varieties. Full of pests and diseases, thorns, nasty sprawling habits, flowers for all of 4 weeks a year, flowers go brown and hang limply and a lot of hard work for such a short show. Taking up valuable space for more interesting plants, if this isn't enough I'm sure I can come up with more.

We do have roses but Mom bought all but one of them, my purchase was a pure curiosity, Rosa viridiflora with bright lime green flowers. Not everyones taste but suitably garish for a rose.

I'll have to take a decent picture of it one of these days.

Blue moon isn't really blue its more of a dove grey. It certainly isn't Sombreil (I was forced to give space to Sombreil). If it flattens out and fully double its probably an English rose.

Beyond that I dunno.
