I hope someone here can help me. We have, in the family, an
80-year-old climbing rosebush that my grandfather had started. I've
tried several times, using various methods in books, to get new plants
started from it but I can't seem to get them to root. Does anyone
have a method that would work for a "non-gardener"?

Many thanks in advance.

Someone asked about seeing the roses. I managed to get a few digital
pictures with an old digital camera. Hope this helps!

If this doesn't work, please let me know and let me know what it is or
isn't doing. Thanks!

Rose


Probably American Beauty?

I concur. It does look amazingly healthy.
My neighbhor purchased one are the movie
and it has been an absolute dog. Disease
after disease. Can't figure it out.


Wonder if the older ones are more disease resistant than the newer
ones. Of course, this one's seen quite a bit of disease and more but
it loves an east facing. That's something I'll keep in mind as I try
for another rosebush.

Rose, does this rose repeat or bloom only once in the spring?


This bush does bloom again when the weather turns cooler - say
September/October. But it doesn't bloom as profusely.

And does
it have a rich scent?


Very. It's the classic rose scent. Reminds me of Victorian times.

I'll agree it looks very similar to American Beauty. Very possible ID. That
rose is still available at several reputable sellers. If you aren't able to
get cuttings rooted you can buy one. It isn't quite the same as having a piece
of your grandfather's plant, but it's better than losing it entirely.

This page lists several places where the rose can be purchased:

Thanks for the idea, Julie, but I really wanted it off of Grandpa's.
The pic is nice though but the roses are too light in color.
Grandpa's is a hot pink.

Um! Julie,

Having a bad typo day :-


Can't even blame that one on a typo, I can't even copy and paste!
Since Rose isn't interested in buying one, I won't bother trying again. Who
knows what I'd post this time.

Julie,

I had a thought. Do you think a local nursery might start a rosebush
for me? Do you or anyone know if any nursery has ever done this kind
of thing and, if so, how much it might cost?

Rose your best bet would be to
contact a local consulting rosarian.
They are usually more than willing
to help at stuff like this. Maybe they can
root a few extra for their raffles.

Nurseries typically produce budded roses
by a long multi year process. These roses
are produced in Texas & Califirnia typically.
They are then shipped around the country.
