Dr. Huey on the left, purple clematis on the right. I inherited this rose bush 24 years ago when we moved to this house. Whatever rose this was had already surrendered to the good doctor. I essentially ignored it for about 20 years and then I started to give it some loving care. I have over 500 blooms on this old-timer. Mine likes to get powdery mildew but I have not seen any blackspot in a while. Very easy to train - I don't have anything but the garage wall supporting it. In the next few days it will get a serious haircut - out with the old canes and in with the new!

Learned the hard way not to buy roses in "body bags" from Tractor Supply. Still has a nice, moderate rose fragrance. Looks like I will get a second burst of blooms from it soon, which is not typical for this rose.

Dr Huey as an escaped understock but trained as a climber on the house and fence. Mt Torrens, South Australia, zone 9b. At the end of a cold wet spring.

‘Dr. Huey’ sprouting on a 1997 plant of ‘St. Cecilia’. Gift Garden-7. Dec 3, 2021. First sign of the rootstock after 24 years. One must never drop the guard and I am happy that I grow mostly own root roses in my heavy soil.
