Patience is a virtue, Abby ;D

It's almost time to prune the roses - and I'll be watching her like crazy for the first signs of sprouting....

 :woohoo: Rena

All the signs point to that you have one unique rose - do cuttings of all the prunings and if there happens to be a seed pod let it ripen  :good:

Have heard from Andy again

" Looks like 'Rosarium Uetersen' a Kordes Rose introduced in Germany 
1977. A large flowered climber, very disease resistant.

Andy "

But I think you said it was a bush rose type ??? and

(See what the leaves look like - this one is VERY susceptible to mildew and black spot unfortunately.)

:dance:
So the search goes on.  :dance:

I'm still trying to ID, Abby ;D
Received this mail back yesterday:

"Hi Rena

It is difficult to say with 100% certainty from a photo ? it is likely Crimson Glory or Charles Mallerin ?
Perhaps when you the opportunity, you can take a stem (with leaves) the bloom must not be too open to our branch just off the N1 highway ? Ludwig?s Roses Winelands 021 8844552 winelands@ludwigsroses.co.za
Seeing it ?in the flesh? will make it a lot easier to correctly identify it for you
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require further information or assistance

Hi Rena

I see you have contacted Ludwig. What you can also do is google the website http://www.helpmefind.com/rose.  You can then type in the various cultivar names ans see different photos of those roses. It might be that seeing various pics from the same cultivar will make it easier to id your rose. Is it more red-black, more crimson, more red, or more orange red in real life? I really hope we can id this one...

Thanks Rena  :)
Somebody once said "Less haste less waste"  :-[
Guess I got over-excited  :woohoo: and skimmed instead of reading.

Liezel  :)

Thanks for the link I will study it on the next rainy day - I have pawed through thousands of rose pictures - we've had a lot of wet weather of late  ??? I should say the six months  :'(

 :woohoo: Liezel

The cold wind hit us after lunch must be blowing from Antarctica straight to the bone
and definitely not gardening weather.

That sure is a great link - pawed through many a pretty rose for a couple of hours and by the looks of it have a long way to go. No have not found anything resembling Rena's form in any colour.

Abby

 :good: Glad you liked the link! I've found it to be quite addictive... especially when I have to work  :-[ We also had some severe cold spells recently (it actually SNOWED in Pretoria - i think the last time this happened was decades ago!). And after the snow came the hail  :'( At least it seems as if my plants have survived it, although with plenty of torn leaves and flowers. Al least wo now have wonderful sunny weather.

Abby - there were 3 buds on this rose when I took the above photo - 2 have been broken off by falling oak tree branches during the heavy wind - now only one is left......hold thumbs that this one makes it!  But she usually flowers better later in the season.
