The famous "Variegated Rose" of Danish horticulture with richly splashed foliage perfect with the lovely double pink "Hybrid Tea Rose" blossoms topping the short upright canes. Yinger kindly shared this potentially difficult (because a cold greenhouse subject in far northern winters) creature with us; these are small rooted established cuttings--and since taken from mature wood, are inclined to bloom very early on under your careful supervision. Much in demand with the hobby greenhouse crowd so current availability can be less than immediate, although we have kept up admirably the last two seasons--as we have found this glorious prima donna to be impossibly difficult to ship during the heat of summer, we thus will hold your summer order until early fall. We have one specimen at the nursery here which as now survived several winters outdoors in an extremely protected site without any severe damage to the roots.
|Cultural Code||HH CGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
