Hi all,
Have any of you seen or grown these roses? If so, do you have any information at all about them? How big they might get, what sort of habit, nice foliage or not, disease susceptibility, fragrance, charm, ginormous thorns, etc. Anything at all, really. I don't care what zone you are in, there is so little out there about these two roses that I'll be happy to hear from anyone.
Thanks so much!

I'm sorry. I don't grow them and I don't know anyone who does, but you can get some information about them from our database entries for these roses.

Rose (Rosa 'Duchesse d'Albe')

Rose (Rosa 'Comtesse Riza du Parc')

Thanks Zuzu,

I looked at Help Me Find as well, and though there is a bit of information there too, I am still trying to get a clear picture of these roses. I'm guessing that very few people grow them.

Be aware that the rose in commerce as 'Duchesse d'Albe' is most likely 'Mrs. Wakefield Christie-Miller'. Perhaps others grow it under that name.

In that case, Zuzu does have it. A lovely rose!

I did have it, Porkpal, but it only struggled along for a few years before giving up the ghost. It was one of those hybrid teas from Vintage Gardens that probably never were meant to grow on their own roots.

Thank you everyone! This definitely gives me some new information to contemplate. If the rose is Mrs Wakefield Christie-Miller, then it seems like I ought to avoid it, seeing as how it is on its own roots. I appreciate your help!
