Shouldn't the breeder on this be listed as Alec Cocker?

Yes, I believe so. Changed from Anne Cocker to Alec M. Cocker.

Seedlings of Silver Jubilee tend to be dense and bushy. But not particularly disease resistant.

Silver Jubilee does well here in zone 9B in a no spray garden. It shows no tendency toward disease.
Reply #2 of 13 posted 21 OCT 18 by steve fritz
Which varieties of roses do you grow there that appear free of disease? And how long have they been in place?
Roses often do not show diseases until they have been in the same spot in the garden for 2 or 3 years. I think the pathogens need to get established in the soil around them.

I have over 3000 rose plants of all kinds. Most of the roses are HT (many of which are Florist Roses) and FL. The weather here is 90 to over 100 degrees for most of the summer. The only time I have any sign of fungus in my garden is in the spring. When it gets hot, the leaves affected fall off and new growth appears fungus free. All of the roses in the main garden have been there more than 10 year. When I first planted my garden, I used fungicides. Then one year I didn't spray and the roses did better than ever. I now have a spray free garden except for the Fusilade II that I spray to prevent grasses and a pre-emergent that we spray once in the winter.

It appears you live in southern California. Here in North Carolina the air much more humid and rain a problem. We had 2 hurricanes blow through there this year and had a stretch of heavy rain seven days in a row.

Fungus was a problem for us.

3000 roses it a lot. How did you acquire so many??

I looked at some of your photos. Gypsy Curiosa for example.

Do you have this rose growing in your garden?

Do you have a computerized list of the roses in your possession?

If so, I'd be interested in checking it out.

But if it not already compiled I can't imagine trying to run down the names of so many roses.

I acquired so many because I have been growing roses for a long time----and I had a lot of great resources for these roses. Unfortunately many of these resources no longer exist. I got a lot of florist roses from Carlton's ---and a lot of great and hard to find roses from Cliff Orent's Eurodesert Roses and Vintage Roses. Yes I do have Gypsy Curiosa and Blue Curiosa---Which is quite lovely too. HMF has a list of my roses.
A good source for hard to find roses now is the CCRS auction. I bid online ---and they ship them to me.
I live in the San Francisco Bay area---inland about 40 miles. It is a very hot and mild climate with low humidity most of the time.

This is the first time I have ever heard of the CCRS auction.

I live in North Carolina.

What is the standard bid for these roses??

What is a normal price range??

I reviewed the list and there are a few I'd like to have
Reply #10 of 13 posted 23 OCT 18 by jmile
From past experience they range anywhere. I know that is no help, but I just bid what I think that it is worth to me and wait to see what it is worth to someone else. The online rep only goes up to your bid. If you bid $30 and the other top bid is $20, You only pay a $1 more at $21. If I am wrong, please someone correct me.

OK thanks.

I put in a bid for a rose and I suppose I'll hear if I won by the end of the month.

Are you bidding on any?

The Plant Description page here on HMF says that this Silver Jubilee rose doesn't do well in warmer climes.
I live in a "warm" zone 5b/6a in northwest Missouri, 50 miles north of Kansas City. In this area we definitely get all four seasons with distinct changes between them. Our summer temps rarely get over 100. For the most part I find this is a more temperate climate. We really only seem to get hot into the 90's and rare low 100's for a short period at the end of July and beginning of August.
I understand that this rose was bred in the UK and that is probably why it prefers and thrives better in more temperate climates. But, I wonder if my area wouldn't be moderate enough to support Silver Jubilee so it can thrive at it's very best.
Can you tell me your zone/location and how Silver Jubilee grows for you. I am thinking of purchasing it this Fall as a band. I would probably overwinter it in a container in my unheated garage with the rest of my Pot Ghetto. Then, come next Spring I would transplant it to a garden bed that faces west and is backed up by my garage wall.
Do you think my climate will support Silver Jubilee?
