Perfekte omstendigheter....


...tenkte kjerringa i heimen da alt rundt henne plutselig var stille,rolig,fredfyllt.Ihvertfall inne.Ute var det et ufyselig ruskevær,man drømte seg vekk til varmere dager.Og det var da kjerringa kom på at nå var det faktisk helt akkurat perfekte omstendigheter til å begynne detektivarbeid og gransking i forkant av hageutformingen som skal fortsette i år!
Gubben og Martine var på håndballkamper mens Linus´én var på besøk hos en kompis,alle dyr sov søtt - på med data´n!!!!

Kjerringa skal visst ha seg roser i hagen.Riktignok har jeg noen allerede som gleder meg hvert år med sine skjønne rosa roser,men så skulle jeg så gjerne hatt noen flere varianter,både klatrende oppetter vegger og i bed.Og da vil jeg ha fylte,velduftende roser
- og da kan det jo være lurt å skaffe seg litt kunnskap om forkjellige sorter først så her kommer et laaaangt innlegg viet til mitt arbeid som rosegransker!Jeg må finne ut ting som f.x herdighet,størrelse på både selve blomsten og stilk/busk og duft.Så kan jeg bare lete det opp og lese og sammenligne og undersøke videre,bloggen min er ofte mitt eget lille oppslagsverk og hva vet vel jeg - kanskje det er andre som er interessert i roser også??? Eller vil dele med sin kunnskap og sine erfaringer?
Jeg er spesielt svak for David Austin roser og der finnes det mange nydligheter å velge mellom...




Artikkel fra Bogrønt:

David Austin-roser byr på alt du kan ønske deg av en rose: De er remonterende og blomstrer hele sommeren, de dufter fantastisk og de har de flotteste rosene du kan tenke deg.
Ingen engelsk hage uten roser, og høyest på ”rangstigen” kommer rosene fra den legendariske rosedyrkeren David Austin i Wolverhampton. Familiebedriften har gjennom 50 år med nitidig forskning og rosedyrkning foredlet frem en rekke rosesorter som har alle de egenskapene man ønsker seg av en rose. I 2012 ble den 39. rosekolleksjonen fra David Austin lansert.

Moderne og gammeldags

Rosedyrkeren David Austin senior begynte på 1960-tallet å krysse frem nye rosesorter fra gamle, ofte kalt historiske rosesorter, som ble krysset med moderne Floribunda og Hybrid Tea-roser. Den første rosen David Austin lanserte, var Constance Spry i 1963. I 1969 klarte han å krysse fram en gruppe roser som forente egenskapene til moderne og historiske roser: Remonterende blomstring og god duft. I dag er det 190 sorter Austin-roser, og det kommer stadig nye.
Kjennetegnet på Austin-rosene er at de er moderne buskroser med gammeldagse blomster. I motsetning til mange andre moderne roser, som ofte ikke har duft, har de en sterk og karakteristisk duft. Noen dufter som de gammeldagse rosene, mens andre kan ha duft av krydder eller sitron.
Bladverket minner også om de historiske rosene. I tillegg har Austin-rosene egenskapene til moderne roser, de fleste sortene er remonterende og kan blomstre hele sesongen fra vår til sen høst. De finnes i alle mulige størrelse, fra de laveste som kan stå på et gravsted på kirkegården, til høye klatreroser som kan dekke en hel vegg.

BoGrønt-kampanje

De fleste Austin-rosene er herdige til sone 4 eller 5, med noen unntak. Plantestedet bør være et lunt, solrikt sted i god hagejord. De fleste stedene i Norge er vinterdekking å anbefale, spesielt hvis det er lite snø. Rosene krever også jevnlig gjødsling med rosegjødsel, og god vanning. De fleste sortene bør beskjæres ned til cirka 20 centimeters høyde hvert år, for å opprettholde den lave vekstformen.
BoGrønt har i 2012-sesongen kampanje på David Austin-roser, med blant annet disse sortene:
William Shakespeare 2000 er en av de sunneste og sterkeste av Austin-rosene, med flotte, tette blomster.
Winchester Cathedral er en nydelig, hvit rose som blomstrer svært tidlig. Den dufter som honning og mandelblomster.
The Alnwick Rose har fått navnet sitt etter den berømte slottshagen i landsbyen nord for Newcastle. Flott bladverk og god duft med et hint av bringebær.
Queen of Sweden har sart rosa blomster og er en vakker busk som er svært motstandsdyktig mot sykdom.
Strawberry Hill er en middels stor buskrose som egner seg spesielt godt til kant-beplantning.

Fire grupper

David Austin deler i dag inn sin roseproduksjon i fire grupper:
Hybrider av historiske/gammeldagse roser:
Dette er mellomstore, hardføre buskroser med god duft. De fleste har, i likhet med rosene de opprinner fra, delikate rosa fargenyanser, men det finnes også noen røde og gule varianter. Gruppen består av krysninger mellom gamle roser i Gallica- og Damask-gruppen, og moderne roser.
Noen eksempler på sorter i denne gruppen: Eglantyne (sart rosa), Brother Cadfael (rosa), Cottage Rose (rosa), Gertude Jekyll (rosa), Mary Rose (rosa), Chianti (lilla), L.D. Braithwaite (rød), Jude the Obscure (gul), Winchester Cathedral (hvit).
Leander-hybrider:
Ligner litt mer på moderne roser, med store, vakre, velformede roser. I likhet med de historiske hybridene, er veksten buskete. Stor variasjon i fargespekteret. Mange av sortene har fruktlignende duft.
Noen eksempler på sorter i denne gruppen: William Morris (sart rosa), Alan Titchmarsh (rosa), Jubilee Celebration (rosa), Benjamin Britten (rød), Abraham Darby (aprikosfarget), Golden Celebration (gul).
Musk-hybrider:
Denne gruppen ble utviklet ved å krysse de historiske/gammeldagse hybridene med Noisette-roser. De har en spinklere vekst enn de to ovennevnte gruppene, og blomstene er litt mindre og lettere i uttrykket. De fleste sortene har sarte farger. Musk-hybridene har ikke så sterk duft.
Noen eksempler på sorter i denne gruppen: Heritage (sart rosa), The Generous Gardener (sart rosa), Evelyn (aprikosfarget), Comte de Champagne (gul), Jayne Austin (gul), Crocus Rose (hvit).
Alba-hybrider:
Disse rosene er den gruppen Austin-roser som ligner mest på gammeldagse, historiske roser. De fleste har en vekst som er nokså lik ville roser, og enkle eller halvfylte, ganske små roser.
Noen eksempler på sorter i denne gruppen: The Alexandra Rose (sart rosa), Cordelia (rosa).

Evelyn bears giant, apricot colored flowers of a shallow, saucer-like shape, with numerous small petals inter-twined within. This is not the most vigorous of English Roses, but the individual flower is absolutely magnificent. Its great glory is its wonderful fragrance, which is similar in style to an Old Rose, but with a sumptuous fruity note reminiscent of fresh peaches and apricot.

Special CharacteristicsStrong arching growth.
In early summer, ‘Abraham Darby’ bears large, deeply cupped blooms in shades of pink, apricot and yellow and, in spite of their size, they continue to be produced for the remainder of the season. They have a rich, fruity fragrance with a refreshing sharpness. ‘Abraham Darby’ is an excellent, vigorous, medium-sized shrub. It has a bushy, arching habit and large, polished, rather modern leaves; flower, growth and leaf are all in proportion and never clumsy. Named to celebrate the inventor Abraham Darby, who, with his son and grandson, played an important part in the industrial revolution.
It repeats well but summer pruning will encourage a better crop of flowers and help maintain a more compact plant.

The flowers of this rose commence as small, rounded buds which gradually open to form a cupped flower that is well filled with numerous petals - these are slightly ‘dished’ towards the centre. The colour is a soft glowing pink, which gradually turns to lilac-pink as the flower ages. It will form a substantial shrub of some 5 ft. x 4 ft. It is highly disease-resistant. There is a pleasing fragrance with a hint of myrrh. A rose of typical Old Rose beauty. 8ft as a climber. 5 ft. x 4 ft. as a shrub.
We are pleased to name this rose for The Freedom Association, which does much good work campaigning for the preservation and extension of freedom.





A variety of typical Old Rose beauty. The small, rounded buds gradually open to large, very full, deeply cupped flowers of soft glowing pink, gradually turning lilac pink over time. The flowers are held elegantly poised on the branches with the greyish-green foliage setting them off to perfection. There is a pleasing fragrance with a hint of myrrh. ‘Spirit of Freedom’ is a strong growing variety that will form a large shrub, ideal for the back of the border. It can also be trained as a graceful short climber with nodding blooms and long, arching stems that can be easily fanned out to encourage growth. Named for the Freedom Association.









Pierre de Ronsard
(Ikke David Austin)


One of the most beautiful romantic roses ever created is the Meilland rose; Pierre De Ronsard also known as Eden rose. It belongs to a class of roses known as Romanticas. Fully double roses with a romantic old fashioned look. It is the French Rose company's response to the popularity of the English Austin Roses. Modern roses with an old fashioned look. Many of the Romanticas are Hybrid Teas to the core, but not Eden Rose, that is more like climber:




The flowers are huge and cup-shaped and very heavy. The buds are light green and develop into creamy white almost cabbage looking and later cup-shaped flowers with a delightful blush pink center. As the flower ages they turn almost white. The flowers are often used in exclusive bridal bouquets and wedding flower arrangements, and I can think of few roses more pretty for beautiful blushing bride than Eden Rose. 



Few roses are this easy to grow because of it's outstanding disease resistance. The leaves are dark green, tough and shiny. In USDA zones 5 or colder it is never going to be much of climber, but can be grown as a shrub rose. In warmer climate zones it can be grown as a 4-5 feet tall shrub with hard pruning or it can be grown as climber.

The rose was hybridized by Marie-Louise Meilland from the Family owned French rose company: Meilland Roses in 1987 .In Europe the rose is mostly known as Eden Rose, Even though It in France was named Pierre De Ronsard after the the great French poet. In America the rose is often known under the name Eden Rose Climber.

Due to the popularity of the rose it became included in the "Roses Hall of Fame" by popular vote of the member societies in the World Federation of Rose Societies in 2006.

If I shall mention some of the few flaws the rose has it must be that the rose only have a very light fragrance, and like other fully double roses it does not like wet weather, so I often pick nice bouquets if it going to rain:

Attractive, neatly formed, medium-sized rosettes in shades of glowing apricot.

Miranda

MIRANDA LUXURY CUT ROSE

Miranda was part of the second generation of David Austin's Cut Roses and remains very popular today for weddings and events. This rose is remarkable for the giant blooms, made up of approximately 120 wavy petals, perfectly arranged to form beautiful, almost flat rosettes.

When fully open, the heart of the flower is a pure rose pink, while the outer petals pale to the softest shade of pink.

At the bud stage, the outer petals can be seen to have a lovely streaked green effect, which adds to the garden style, creating a look reminiscent of a parrot tulip. These outer petals gradually turn back and are hidden as the blooms open.

Miranda has a delicate fruity fragrance.

The soft pink flowers are neatly formed in the shape of a flat rosette filled with petals, with a small button eye in the centre. The flowers tend to turn towards us on the branch, just as we would wish in a climbing rose. The growth is tall and vigorous, with a plentiful coverage of foliage. The greyish-green leaves are large, smooth and highly disease-resistant. This rose is quite superb when trained as a climber - in fact it is one of the best of all climbers - but it may also be grown as a tall shrub. St. Swithun flowers freely, repeats very quickly and is particularly tough, and reliable. There is a strong pure myrrh fragrance, typical of the English Roses. 8 ft.

Litt av et arbeid - som slett ike akkurat var gjort på en dag!Det kommer til å ta mange dager...og kjerringa fant jammen ut at det ikke er bare,bare å være detektiv heller!!!!Men det får bare ta sin tid,det er jo veldig spennende også da.Synes det blir litt voldsomt og  overveldende og man kan bli litt skremt med det samme når man ser hvor mange sorter som finnes...her er jo bare en brøkdel,men noen av de jeg liker best (så langt).Dette innlegget kommer nok til å  bli oppdatert med mer om temaet x antall ganger til - og med litt flaks og kanskje nyervervet kunnskap resulterer det i nydelige roser i hagen etterhvert!!! :)
