I am an old rose fan, but I love to see the spectacular photos so often posted here of all roses. Carolyn Supinger is lovely!

Maybe start the convention of adding an identifier to each post for everyone who wants their posts only to be about "old roses". Something like O.R. at the start of the subject title. That would be left up to each individual poster.
It would be a simple matter to look at the titles and pick the ones with O.R.
People could read only the O.R. posts or select to read them all.

@jerijen , although I'm a newbie here as well, I don't get the impression that it would be "horning in" to discuss just Old Roses or any other single particular classification of roses. It seems to me that the purpose of keeping just one "Roses" forum is to be all-inclusive, and not to exclude any one group. Although I'm only beginning to learn about roses, from just what I've read here recently, it seems that the "classification" of roses has in recent years become very muddled, with new "modern" varieties mimicking Old Roses and Antique Roses, with many people accepting these new roses in their own collections of Old and Antique Roses, so, except for the "purists", many rose collections--and thus collectors--have become inclusive, anyway. And although I have recently discovered, to my dismay, that the old saying, "A rose, by any other name still smells as sweet" is no longer factual (since some roses don't have a scent), the intended meaning remains the same: a rose is a rose, is a rose.

I agree

Zuzu, we HAVE to add that rose to the database !

@jerijen, Jeri ... I hope you enter that photo in the photo contest.

I learn so much from everyone that i hope there is just a "rose" forum.
Jeri, that rose is gorgeous! I will have to see if it is on HMF, so I can figure out where to purchase it! Stunning!
