Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Jonkheer J.L. Mock'), kohldany wrote:

I have a rose here in Goesnes (Belgium) close to the Héritage 14-18 & 40-45 Museum and I try to identify this rose. I have come accross a series of names (Jonckheere JL Mock; Leenders, la France, Madame Camille, Farbenkönigin ...); can you help with this identification?
I also will ckeck with Rudolf Bergmann (Lauterbach Rose Garden) and seek his advice. Many thanks for your help.

PS: for your information my father Justin Kohl (1921-1983) created the "Prince Henri" rose (the last rose created by a Luxemburg national in the "Country of Roses) in 1962.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Ambridge Rose'), flowerchild75 wrote:

Blooms prolifically with really fast repeats. Unlike my other Austins, Ambridge tolerates hot temps in the upper 90s and up, extreme humidity, and full sun without any trouble or problems. For me, here in 6a, blooms are mostly light apricot (very pastel) and fade to almost white by day 3. A very compact and tidy bush. Ordered mine as a bare root directly from David Austin's website and planted it the third week in April of 2020. It took off and has been blooming like crazy since early to mid July. Foliage is healthy and attractive. Has a lovely, sweet fragrance that is just right, yet not overpowering, with notes of honeysuckle and myrrh. Definitely a winner and must-have in my book!

Talking about Lady Banks Yellow (Rosa banksiae f. lutea), jathton wrote:

If you were to go to YouTube after reading this comment and type in "Shady Lady" or "The World's Largest Rose" you would be taken to a 6 minute film. The film will tell you a fascinating story about, I believe, the white flowering form of Bank's Rose.
This particular Lady Banks Rose, as of 2017, completely covers an arbor that measures 9,000 square feet. In its native habitat of central and western China it typically grows at elevations of 1,640 - 7,218 feet.
But this rose nowhere near acquired the status in China that it grabbed in Tombstone, AZ.

The "Shady Lady of Tombstone" was, in 1970 when I first saw it, and continues to be somewhat awe inspiring. In 1989 my mother was contemplating replacing the canvas arbor that covered her patio... but the $4,000 cost did not appeal to her at all. So I suggested the yellow form of the Lady Bank's Rose.

Ten years later the rose had covered half of the arbor and it absolutely glows when the entire plant is covered in small, double pale yellow flowers.

If you have an arbor and you are contemplating a climbing plant for it... I strongly recommend this terrific rose.

This is a lovely and fragrant rose, but like most roses in my garden, plagued by some early tiny caterpillars (sawflies?) and black spot. I no longer have it.

Talking about Multiflora Rose (Rosa multiflora), janelp_lee wrote:

Easy to grow from seeds or cuttings. Small, single, fragrant white flowers in late spring in huge numbers. Good for cut flower use, the flowers also attract bees and butterflies. The pea-sized rosehips turn from green to vibrant orange-red in late summer and last throughout the winter until the next early spring. The twigs with red fruit are excellent as cut flowers in outdoor winter planters as filler or indoors as cut flowers in vases. The twigs with red fruit also can be used dry as gift wrap decorations. The smooth, thornless canes are very friendly to gardeners. Fast growing, so it can be invasive.
