Among My Favorite Roses . . .

last month

Among my favorites is 'Gloire des Rosomanes' ... (aka "Ragged Robin")

Bred by Plantier (France, 1825).
Introduced in France by Jean-Pierre Vibert in before 1836 as 'Gloire des Rosomanes'.

This clone was collected in the remains of a long-deserted garden, in San Juan Bautista, at the site of a house which was built in 1880. I think it's probably the nicest 'Gloire des Rosomanes' I've ever met.

I speculate that this may have been planted AS "Ragged Robin", rather than as rootstock.
