Rose Database

Post by KBW » April 2nd, 2013, 1:51 am

There are so many hundreds and thousands of rose cultivars that sometimes, it becomes quite difficult to recognise a particular rose variety. Though there is lot of information availble on this forum regarding various rose varieties grown in Pakistan, it is found in numerous threads under different titles. The purpose of this thread is to collect various pics of roses from different threads and elsewhere and post them at one place. I understand that such a thread will not be very appealing for experts but for a novice like me, it will be a great help.

The other day I visited Changa Nursery in Pattoki. Apart from buying a few roses, I took pics of over 50 rose varieties planted in the nursery. I will post those pics here for the information of members along with some information (acquired from the net. I am hardly competent to comment on roses :mrgreen: ). I would request the rose experts to give their views with regard to care / maintenance of these roses.

After thoughts...... posted on 21 Jul 13

1. Since bloom size, shade and fragrance of a particular rose cultivar may differ from climate to climate, soil to soil and from season to season, the rose pic posted in this thread may not exactly look like the rose that you have or you have seen somewhere else. The pics shown in this thread should therefore be considered as general reference only.

2. All pics in this thread are of bushes growing in Pakistan. I will not post pics taken from the web, of the same cultivar, because they may look different owing to a different climate, soil type etc etc.

The most interesting thing I found out about Helen Naude is that no two blooms were abosolutely identical. Secondly, HMF database mentions either no scent or very little scent but the bloom in my home had a strong pleasant scent.

This rose is worth trying in hot climate of Pakistan.

Image

Common Name: Saeeda Kareem
Type: Hybrid Tea
Bred by: Changa Nurseries, Pattoki (2012)
Description:
Large size peach colour flowers. Moderate fragrance.

Lineage: Doris Tysterman x Queen Elizabeth

Saeeda Kareem performed outstandingly this summer. I think it was one of the least effected of all the roses. Though the flower size reduced but not like most other roses which had a drastic reduction in the size. A highly recommended rose.

KBW's Comments
Small single flowers which are mildly scented. At times, the scent is not detectable, specially in hot weather. Lots and lots of flowers all year round, even on the hottest day of the year. Shocking pink bloom contrasts beautifully with light green foliage. A very neat bush which despite small single flowers gives overall a very impressive look.
