Reynolds Hole often referred to them as “trees”, and that’s good enough for me! ;-)

Imagine arborist prices for rose maintenance :)

Hoping they add this rose. It smells wonderful, and its short unlike most Austins. Foliage is a lot like Julie Andrews.

Added, thank you! It is indeed very much like 'Pink Paradise' ('Julie Andrews'). A synonym?

No, I own both. Similar color and foliage, but very different bloom size, shape, fragrance, and plant size.

So, 1st year review, so far. Foliage health and vigor seem good. Form is very nice, and so is bloom size. No scenthere, but its too early for that. Sometimes scent in roses kicks in when the root system is mature.

Here is the issue. I would not get it again... the color is not what I expected. Yes, its pastel. I assumed a color similar to Elina. It's somewhere between white, yellowed-cream, and... the color of dusty sand that almost approaches dirty ochre. I hate it lol. I'll keep it. It's a nice rose, but the color definitely needs drowned out by other cutting roses. Well, unless you're into that color.

I will later this year or next year. I already harvested the blooms to examine them up close.

So far, about 3 layers of petals. They seem to lay flat when fully opened and exposed and changing color.

J&P has sold out of this variety, but for the curious, they do have pictures. Brilliant, glowing color in the opening stages. I am personally not a big fan of yellow roses which fade to pink, as this one seems to do in some of the pix here @ HMF.

Mine went from chrome yellow to umber red. None of the foliage spotted despite its low air circulation location.

Personally, I was hoping for a little fuller bloom, but I'll accept this so far.

Edit: they finally went to white and arf ruddy pink. Bark bark...

Hmmm, only a little bit of fragrance on this one here. Anytime they name something "Parfuma," I expect better. Marketing!

Agreed ... nice rose, but it's like the perfume didn't make it through customs.

Mine has a strongly developed plant now, so I'm going to see if having a larger root system has an affect on the fragrance or not (it does in some damask HTs). I'll try to remember to report back.

What is a "damask HT"?
REPLY
Reply #5 of 7 posted 4 days ago by Kim Rupert
I think Michael means HTs with Damask scent.

Reply #6 of 7 posted 4 days ago by Michael Garhart
Sorry Damask HT is basically the darker red types with damask fragrance, or at least referred to as damask fragrance even if its not lol.

Tested the scent today. If I REALLY bury my nose in there, its moderate fragrance. The plant is very nice, and the blooms are pretty, but labeling it Parfuma is a stretch by Kordes in my opinion.

The soil has adequate water. The plant is healthy and robust. The blooms are large and full. The weather has been cool mornings and mid-80s afternoons. So there is no real reason for it not to be fragrant. I just think Kordes overstated the strength of scent. Or maybe they're really sensitive to that type of scent.

For those reading, I'd still buy it again. It looks romantic and its very healthy. But don't expect it to blow your nose away lol.
