Marilyn Wellan

Maryl zone 7aJanuary 22, 2006

Does anyone know of a mail order source for the Eddie Edwards HT Marilyn Wellan that's not on Fortuniana? Will it be registered under that name as I understand there is already a mini named M.W.

It has already been registered as Marilyn Wellan. The mini was registered as MOEmarilyn, so there was not a conflict. The Marilyn Wellan name for the mini is just a commercial synonym. Further, Mitchie Moe (who hybridized MOEmarilyn) gave her blessing to naming the new HT Marilyn Wellan before the registration was submitted.

I'm not aware of anyone carrying the new Marilyn Wellan on anything other than Fortuniana. If it becomes popular there may be some who will pick it up on another rootstock, but for now it is very limited.

Thank you for your reply. At least I know what name to look for if the HT proves worthy of mass marketing. I realize that the ARS was proud of the name, but it IS frustrating to see the luscious pictures of a rose in the ARS magazine that only a select few have access to at present. I'll be on the lookout for any news of it in the future. A fragrant exhibition HT doesn't happen every day.

For now it probably will only be available from Johnny Becnel Show Roses. All the nurseries and rose hybridizers were hurt by Katrina, so there isn't much stock right now. I hope we hear more about it in the coming months.

I recall when Eddie announced the HT 'Marilyn Wellan' at the convention in Memphis he said that Johnny Becnel Show Roses was going to have it budded on Fortuniana, and Jack Walter mentioned he would have it on Multiflora. You might check with Kimbrew-Walter Roses to see if I heard right and when they would be available.

I talked to Jack Walter from Kimbrew-Walter the other day, and he told me that he is going to have all of Eddie's hybrids on Multiflora. However, as many of you know Eddie suffered quite a setback from Katrina. Jack mentioned that he would not be getting any budwood until spring, so it will be a while before he has some limited quantities of field grown budded plants.

Vernon Rickard at Almost Heaven Roses is carrying this rose own-root. I ordered it myself just this week along with The Wright Brothers, Denali, and Tabatha. I am excited to find someone carrying this not on fortuniana.

This rose made court at the Tulsa spring rose show today. Beautiful bloom. So many reds to choose from these days.

In California, it's pink and full of mildew. What a dramatic disappointment! Eddie really needs to test his roses in a broader climate before introduction. I'm tired of being his guinea pig.

thanks for the info Amandahugg. I love exhibition HT's but also want it to be a nice garden rose as well. It does happen on occasion (I'm thinking Gemini for one).

I never have any BS or PM on any of my 200 roses including lots of Eddie Edwards cultivars including Marilyn Wellan. I spray every 2-3 weeks with mancozeb mixed with either funginex or daconil depending on the temp. outside.

Get your MW here. I have gotten at least 2 from James and they are a great supplier of roses on Fortuniana.

Here is a link that might be useful: K and M Roses
