    Nostalgie is difficult to find. I had to order mine from a mail-order nursery, but now I am not sure where I bought it -- probably Palatine Roses years ago. Mine grows in my Southside Rose garden. The blooms are stunning. For me the plant stays rather short. It does need spraying with a systemic fungicide here in my humid Long Island, NY garden.

    This rose reminds me a lot of Double Delight. The latter I have in my yard, but not this one. I wonder as a comparison those that grow it what could they comment. I also searched the HMF Dbase and there's no information about its lineage/parentage. Any suggestions?
