Hello, HMFers,

I have just renewed my premium membership. This is correctly displayed in my account listings. Nevertheless I cannot use some of the advanced search topics like "introduction" or "lineage". Could you please enable these for me.

Best regards

Have you tried logging out and logging back in?

Yes, jedmar, I tried this, but it did not work. Now, however, everything is ok. It just seems to have taken some time, until the "news" has trickled through the whole database :-).

Best, Josef

Rose Listing Omission

Heike Gianotti

At the garden of the Chateau du Rivau, I saw a plant of this rose bred by Lens (according to the label). Although no date was stated, the rose has to be rather new, since Heike Gianotti herself is not an old Lady - I suspect her between 30 and 40.

The rose flowers in a light yellow with apricot shades and it is a typical Lens style Hybrid Musk.

Do you have photos of 'Heike Gianotti'?
Reply #2 of 5 posted 15 DEC 08 by Josef Distl
Yes, jedmar, I have - not of Heike herself, but of the rose.

Is this the colour 'William III' ages to?

There is terrible confusion of the smaller single hybrid spinosissimas.

I would rather suspect this to be a picture of 'Staffa'.

Hello Josef,

Hi HMFers,

I think that all roses that are attributed to Christoph Weigang actually "belong" to his son Ludwig. Christoph Weigand died in 1909. In 1904 already Ludwig took over the nursery. There are no references to be found that Christoph actually bred roses, only Ludwig started to breed as a hobby. The main occupation of the Weigand nursery, however, stayed the growing and selling of flowers.

Yes, most all of these roses are after his death. Can you provide a reference we can cite regarding Christoph Weigand's history. Thank you.

The contemporary references seem to refer to Christoph Weigand as the breeder of the wichurana hybrids. These were all commercialized until 1911. The later roses are HTs, HPs etc which would be Ludwig Weigand's field.
There is an article in the Rosenzeitung 1904, p. 106, of which I see only a fragment, which will tell us more.
