Gardeners' Notes:


On Nov 26, 2010, BarbArnoldini from Tunkhannock, PA wrote:

Auguste Renoir was a beautiful and fragrant rose on a bush hardy in zone 5 (microclimate more like zone 6). The distracting feature of Auguste Renoir was it's tendency to "ball". The flowers were so heavy and full in bud, then brown and falling off. I disliked this characteristic so much that I dug up and discarded the bush. Now I regret doing that and would very much like to replace it. Trouble is, I can't find a source for an own-root Auguste Renoir at any of the rose growers I usually visit on the web. Does anyone know where I can locate one from a mail-order nursery of good reputation?

Blooms are packed with petals, 50+ according to the information out there, and it seems to be true. More petals than on any other rose I have seen.
