Well I have been meaning to post some pictures for a while now but had not
got around to it. I have posted some pictures on a yahoo web site if you
would like to have a look:

The album "Roses" contains varied pictures of roses


Wow, Kirra, nice job!

I love "Dream" as I never tire of yellow bicolors. "Minuet" has really
gorgeous colors and those dark green, shiny leaves! I wonder if this
one has another name over here? I will check help.me.find.come when I
have time.

Red Gold is gorgeous, and when I look at your Crepuscule I can see why
people rave over this rose.

The color of "Friesia" reminds me of that of Oregold.

Tell me, which of your roses have fragrance to your nose?

Dream is somewhere between a mini and a patio rose and it kind of closer to
an orangey/apricoty colour with a yellow base. It also has a slight
fragrance which was refreshing since most of my minis do not.

Minuette is available in the US from Regan Nursery and Vintage according to
HelpMeFind. You might not like it so much when you learn that it has no
fragrance. However I must say that the flower lasts a really long time. That
bloom was already over a week old when I took that photo and it was another
week or two until I finally snapped the bloom off when the petals started to
look a bit faded. It also held its form for most of that time as well
without going muddled in the centre.

Did you realise Friesia is our name for Sunsprite? So, as far as fragrance
goes, Friesia and Double Delight would have to be my most fragrant ones. I
also like the fragrance of Apricot Nectar, Eric the Red and Brisbane Blush.
I still have quite a few roses that have bought that have not bloomed yet so
I am sure that this list will increase shortly.

Well now I must have it. I have been wanting to get into smaller
roses, and I always love some fragrance.

I can appreciate roses that stand up well in the garden--finally.
Europeana is one that I love that has no scent, and I am ordering
7-10 of them for next spring.

No, I didn't. I am afraid my Sunsprite was Vole Chow this year.
Talk about cruel, cruel summer. I hated losing that one.

So, as far as fragrance
goes, Friesia and Double Delight would have to be my most fragrant ones. I
also like the fragrance of Apricot Nectar,


Ahhh, I've wanted this one forever. It is a floribunda, right? Tell
me more, like how is the bloom form and how is the bush form? How
tall does it get, and would you consider it vigorous?



Eric the Red and Brisbane Blush.


Bet we don't have BB!

I am sure that this list will increase shortly.

We will eagerly await the photos. Thanks for sharing the once you have.

no, this is the "rest of the world" one (Archiduc Joseph).

Here (NZ) there's two different Monsieur Tillier : one coming from

England
and one "local".
Do you have the same thing in Australia?


I didn't even know there was a difference until you posted this. I did a
little research and HelpMeFind says that the New Zealand one is "aka
Archduke Joseph" and that "In Gardening with Old Roses, p. 30, Alan

Sinclair
and Rosemary Thodey say that this rose (Archduke Joseph) is known in New
Zealand as 'Monsieur Tillier'".

I got my MT from a local nursery (Perrotts) and I think they order their
OGRs from Misty Downs (a guess as I saw a few Misty Downs tags on some

roses
while I was at Perrots). I went to the Misty Downs site
http://www.mistydowns.com.au and they have "Synonymous Names: Archduke
Joseph" for their Monsieur Tillier. So I think it is highly possible that
the rose I have is the "local" one rather than the English one.

My MT hasn't flowered yet, but when it does I'll post some pictures and
maybe we can do a comparison between it and any pictures from people in

the
Northern Hemisphere. Do you know what the differences are supposed to be
between the two roses? I noticed you have MT on your website, I presume it
is the local one ... ?
