Gardeners' Notes:

Positive leisure500 On Jul 10, 2009, leisure500 from Indianapolis, IN wrote:

Eglantyne grows well in the Midwest (Indianapolis, Indiana).

It bloomed nicely it's second year and has a nice fragrance.

It seems to be quite vigorous and is so beautiful in bloom that I planted a second ... where I could sit and gaze at it.

It bloomed very well in its third year at as tall as 3 feet.

It does blackspot in the summer, so I would either spray or use Bayer's drench as a preventative.

According to David Austin's 2009 Handbook of Roses, they named this rose for Eglantyne Jebb, founder of the Save the Children Fund.

In the Austin catalog, I was SURE this rose bloom was about 10" wide. When it finally bloomed, they were little teensy ones, about 2 1/2". Not fair!!!

Also, mine are attacked by Japanese Beetles. I am impressed that I have any bloom to look at even. The bugs seem to congregate on a specific bud and then leave maybe one alone to blossom. Thanks Bugs!

I love the colour and the delicacy of this rose. Its so lushy looking.
