Jema , Elegant Beauty, & Nightingale

jont1(Midwest 5b/6a)October 17, 2004

Would anyone tell me why these three HT's are apparently not exhibited much anymore. Is it just because other cultivars have surpassed them for beauty, reliability,hardiness, disease resistance, or have they just fallen out of vogue?? I was thinking of ordering them. JonT1

Jema was shown at the show I entered this past weekend.. it took a blue ribbon but didn't make it to court. I remember looking at it thinking it was a gorgeous rose.

Jema is a little stingy and slow. Elegant Beauty needs at least another row of petals. Nightingale is a mildew magnent, big time. If it was me, I would get 3 Jema's. Beautiful rose.

Jema has won queen for me. It opens very quickly on the bush, so cut tight. Elegant Beauty has been in the court for me several times. It opens slowly but attracts cucumber beetles and often has short stems. I protect it with remay cloth to keep the bugs out.
