Initial post 21 JUL 11 by Fredrik patience is beginning to run out. This May and June were not so rainy but still the flowers balled. Lots of promising buds but that is really all. Very vigorous though.

Did you give it more chances? If so, did it improve? In a probably warmer climate, balling has not been a problem with this rose, but I am curious about your further experience.

Hi Stefan,

No, I gave it up. It needs much drier conditions than I have. I know DC is very humid in summer but also a lot warmer so it might work. Good luck! Best, Fredrik

I wonder if this rosa "lavender Pinnochio" can be grown in New Mexico, USA. We live in a valley between Santa Fe and Taos. Normally, we can go down to -10 in winter. Hmm...
Thank you, SHK

Probably. This line of roses prefer heat over cold or wet. The main origin of the "true mauves" is derived from a desert rose species.

If this rose is ill-advised by the local societies there, you can also inquire about 'Distant Drums', which is easy to grow, just as fragrant, and of a similar color type. Although it ranges from tans to orchid, rather than tans to mauve.

This rose has the most beautiful red edged foliage, and lots of very red thorns on new shoots..

How would you describe your Dannahue after a year, Marlorena? I haven’t seen a lot of commentary on it since shortly after it launched.
