Every shrub rose should have a pet clematis. In our garden 'Durandii' grows on Rosa glauca, and the combination of those big blue flowers against the powdery purple-blue foliage of the rose is remarkably fine. This clematis is not a good climber, though, and needs a little help from the gardener to stay up there with the rose. It's worth the effort.

At my place it is being intertwined by me with Heinrich Conrad Söth and that makes a nice display too.
It is in my opinion an almost continuous bloomer from the end of may till September or even October.

Hello, does ANYONE know a nursery that is CURRENTLY selling Rosa Primula,(in the USA,since in South Florida, we're a little leery of shipping live plants from Canada : long shipping can fry live plants at the wrong time of the year); The one source I found seems to have gone under in the brutal financial undertow. Thank you for any information you can send me-C.Ross

Species roses are really easy to grow from seed, and I've been searching for seed for this one for years. I'm about to break down and buy a plant from Canada, and if I do, I'll save you seed! Have you found any seed sources, even? Frustrating, isn't it?

You may try to contact Museo dellaRosa Antica in Italy.
They have several rose species' seeds, to be required at this page: from "il Seminatore".
Hope it helps!

Thanks for the information!

I did try a grafted R. primula from Canada, but it didn't survive its first winter.

Hi! Just bought a plant of the adorable (but revoltingly named) Oso Easy Peachy Cream. The Proven Winners tag that came with it says that it's hardy in USDA Zones 3-9. Since your description has the default zones 6b-9b, I thought you'd like to know.

Thanks again for your wonderful and valuable website.

The flowers are deep mauve pink, and there will be a lot of them.
