Good Morning.
I remember the Dr.Verhage Rose from the 1960s. it was a beautiful coloured rose -- deep gold, blushed sometimes on the outside petals with reddish-apricot colour.
The stem was quite ugly and it had heavy thorns and rather ugly large leaves. We used this rose a lot in the flower shop where I worked then in Birmingham. I assumed it had gone out of production because I tried to find a plant for my sister-in-law's golden wedding, as Dr.Verhage was the rose she had carried in her bouquet. Delightful scent also. In the shop we had to clean the stems of thorns. They were lethal, but I think scraping the stems damaged the cell structure? And left them open to bacteria.
It is wonderful seeing other roses on this site that we used. Black tea was a fabulous rose in the 70s and 80s, but it seemed to disappear from the markets as we were told it did not produce enough flowers.

Thank you for the pleasure here. Dr. Verhage is such a different rose today.
I remember Champagne was another fabulous colour, just right for vintage weddings!!

Incredibly easy to take care in my garden. It was planted in a tough spot, bad soil, tough corner, full sun, and it thrives.
