Thornless Roses - Knowledgebase Question

Escondido, CA
Question by cindhiherd

I keep hearing Monrovia has a whole line of thornless roses but I can't seem to locate them or find anything out about them. For senior citizens living in a rest home this development could mean the difference between not being allowed to grow any roses at all (because their skin tears and they bleed easily) to actually being able to have a rose garden - which they keep asking for and managment won't allow. Please direct me to information about your thornless roses and let me know what retailers anywhere in San Diego County carry them. Thanks, Cindhi

'Tausendsh?n' is a R. multiflora cross with a bit of the Hybrid Perpetual 'General Jacqueminot' in its background. Its name means "Thousand Beauties" and its blooms certainly bear up to that name. Flowers are deep rose-pink with at least a third of the center petals a cream-white. The blooms are large, cupped and form in clusters. It grows to about 8 ft., and is rated an 8.5 ("excellent") by those ARS rosarians who grow it. Although once-blooming, this rose is very hardy.

'Nevada' is a Species rose that produces pink or apricot buds which open to large, white single blossoms. Sometimes the petals' reverse sided are splashed with carmine. A vigorous grower to 7 ft., this rose will repeat in the fall with a second heavy flush. It is rated an 8.8 (a very high "excellent") by the ARS.
