Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral marshtackie On Apr 8, 2013, marshtackie from Orlando, FL wrote:

The "neutral" is only because I just got it. I've wanted it for a long time. Planning to grow it together with one of its parents, my beloved Maréchal Niel, with something purple or lavender nearby. Ideally, that w/b a climbing vine such as passionflower, Wisteria or Queen's Wreath or the rose Veilchenblau. In a more practical vein, I'll settle for something ground-hugging, such as Angel Face or Ebb Tide.

My old Maréchal Niel bit the dust after a roofer cut it down, but I have a new one coming. I see a strong family resemblance between the two roses, going by photos.

A huge once-bloomer. This is actually a climber, and madly vigorous here in Maryland; I have a cane peeking into the second story window to the room in which I am typing. In flower it has great clusters of white HT-type flower, all at once and nicely fragrant.
