Old China Rose

This is "Hermosa" - an Old, China Rose bred by Marchesseau, France pre-1837.
One for the enthusiasts - probably a China x Bourbon.
I took this photo when the roses were full-blown.



And a relatively newcomer "Seduction" bred by Meilland, France 1998.

Re: Old China Rose

Both magnificent specimens superbly captured, Lyn. Your love of roses is always implicit in your pictures.

Re: Old China Rose

Thank you Mark - very kind.
I think #2 is a bit soft, but somehow it seemed to suit the rose's name. That is my excuse anyway, and I am sticking to it!

Re: Old China Rose

Thanks for looking Chevvy.
I am a Rose-aholic, and we are going into autumn, so no roses for a while!
It has been a great summer in Oz for roses this year.

Re: Old China Rose

Lyn, I too am a Rose Lover! Near our home is Mottisfont Abbey its owned by National Trust now, but keeps the National Collection of Roses - the perfume as you walk through the archway in the old Victorian Rose Gardens ! ps I forgot to say the National Collection is all old Roses!

If you like I can make some small .jpegs and post a thread Mottisfont Roses for you (at the weekend ?

Are you interested in a Thatched Rose covered Cottage?

Re: Old China Rose

Chevvy - That sounds really good. I have heard of the National Rose Collection.
I am a member of Heritage Roses in Australia & love the old roses. Our society is concerned with finding & perpetuating the old roses found in cemeteries & old gardens that may be lost to future generations.
A lot of people don't know about the old roses and they are very beautiful.

The cottage sounds very, very interesting indeed!
