Identify red climber, semi double

mcbrainerdMay 30, 2014

Blooming now. Thin stemmed climber, dark red buds about 1", blossom 2.5" scarlet w yellow stamens. 15-20 petals, opens flat and cupped. Medium fragrance, not too sweet. Perhaps Musk/China type. Description similar to 'Blaze' but not thick stemmed. Thanks.

Could it be Dr. Huey?

Good call. I think you're right. It fits the site's history. A nice addition to my collection of root stock roses. The picture in Botanica's Roses is a match. I'm pleased with it. The color stands out in its location, and the scent is not "slight", it's clean and spicy. I was looking at Grüss an Teplitz as a possibility from the description, but the picture didn't match. Thanks.

There are others much more experienced so hopefully they can confirm. I have two in my yard that came with the house. It is not everyone favorite , but has always put on a good show for me

This is probably a Dr. Huey.

Looks like the right foliage. Often prone to mosaic and spots in my area, as though producers have been grafting on virused material.

Apparently the scions freeze off during hard winters to leave the 'Dr. Huey' behind. Or there is a recurring delayed incompatibility issue - old, woody bud heads with few or any live canes from the scion surrounded by multiple flowering sized 'Dr. Huey' stems is a familiar sight.

This is an old post, don't know why it is getting activity now. Anyway, I learned something. I'm seeing 'Dr. Huey' many places, and I kinda like it. Thanks to all.
