Campfire rose?

TanlineTraceyMay 28, 2014

So I bought two campfire roses this year, not exactly sure on where I'm going to plant them yet. Wondering what luck others have had with these? One has a couple blooms now and is stunning!!! Hopeing it's going to repeat bloom for me. Emily Carr has never repeated in the past 4 years I've had her.

I planted Campfire last summer. She made it through the winter, I think. Teeny weeny little rose but so far tough. Beautiful blooms last year. :)

I also planted one that was in a 2 gallon pot and it bloomed like crazy. The original plant shape was quite fine textured but after a month of rainy weather it pushed out much larger vigorous growth, neighbours horse gave it, double knockout and morden sunrise a prune job over winter so I can't say how much die back there would have been. So far only Morden Sunrise hasn't started to grow.

I was also going to mention that the blooms lasted a long time and they fade to red, some to white, I think it is a great rose. Time will tell how it makes out in the years to come. Morden Sunrise is in top right and Double Knockout bottom right.

Wayne, she is beautiful! My little girl bloomed as well but not quite so many blooms!

Terry, yes, you must add her to your beautiful garden. Her colors are amazing! :) You won't be disappointed!

Oh my goodness, wayne61, what a lovely and cheerful little rose bush this is!!! Thanks for the great photo!

Now, I know what I need to get this weekend!!! :-) First it's Hansa now I need to add Campfire to the list too! :-)

BTW, wayne61, you have a Double Knock Out and you are in zone 2/3!? It survived the winter!? When I used to live in zone 5 (that was decidedly tropical comparing to my zone 3 here now! LOL) I had some HUGE Double Knock Out bushes. It was absolutely amazing. Then after moving here, I saw the nurseries and big box stores starting to sell KO roses and I was wondering why.... so I would love to hear more about your experience of this rose in the zone 2/3 climate! Thanks in advance.

Most of the roses that I have planted were put in last year, my mother and oldest sister being the contributors of some. Those three roses are about 50ft. on the north side of the building in a windy spot but were covered by a couple feet of snow. The temperature dropped into the low -20's in late November a couple of nights at least with little snow cover then. I had mixed in a lot of spruce needles, cones and other material when they were planted but had not actually mulched them. Besides the horse pruning them the voles totally chewed most of the bark off the crowns of it and the Morden Sunrise. This spring after hearing mom remind me that I should bury the crowns, I covered them all with more soil and mulched them. D.K. is pushing up new growth after all that. It bloomed constantly last year and had grown new stems also and only a bit of powdery mildew. I need to start using mouse poison.

Hehe, twrosz. My first bloom on campfire came yesterday and I promptly cut it and brought it in. It is quite beautiful at a distance it looks like a few others have opened!!

I definitely planted it way too far from my walkway.....might have to get another... LOL

My plant is slowly coming along, same with the D.K. in the same spot, no buds yet. I planted 3 john cabot on the south side of the building by a down spout and fertilized them well, they are 2.5ft. tall and setting buds mostly all new growth. They will have to get a lot more ridged if they are going to go up the ladder that I made.

Tanline Tracey, that is absolutely stunning! I may just have to find myself some excuse to find some space for yet another rose (even though 2 "hardy" ones died on me this past winter).... LOL

I know I am late coming to the discussion but in now the deep of winter what I see and read here in this thread has got me really excited about this rose.

I am just wondering if any of you can update us re its performance all summer and into the Autumn? Lots of blooms throughout?

How large did it get for you?

I am in a much more temperate zone than all of you and so "Japanese Beetles" may not be an issue in your gardens; but just in case did you see any on this rose?

I planted 'Campfire' in early spring as a one gal specimen that wan't very large. It bloomed very well until summer when it got totally defoliated by 4 legged slugs. It took most of the summer for it to regain its foliage and it started to bloom again in the fall. Unfortunately it had a lot of buds on it that never opened due to an early hard frost. Despite the harsh setbacks I think it about tripled in size. I am really looking forward to seeing it this year.

I don't know of anyone that posts here that has JB's, yet......

Good luck and let us know how it does if you decide to get it.

SCG, it takes a "great" rose to stand up to the disease pressure in my yard and few actually do so, 'Campfire' is claimed to have strong resistance, though time will tell as for such here in my yard. 'Emily Carr' has proven itself and one I've really come to like.

Campfire for me so far wants to spread more than grow upright but is still getting established. Bloomed consistently in flushes but as it gets larger I can see that it will be in bloom all summer. We had a lot of rain this past year and I had blackspot on quite a few roses but Campfire was good. Double Knockout is in the back.

Forgot to mention that pic was taken on july 26, there was lots of growth on both roses after that, D.K. is a blooming machine.

Nice photo wayne61, I am staring out the window at the mound of snow that campfire is under anxiously awaiting spring. Crazy weather again as the high is supposed to be 17C on Monday.

Twrosz, OT but how is that nice yellow rose you bred for disease resistance? I am a little bit reluctant to offer to trial it in my garden but for you will do so......
