ABOUT THIS ROSE

BRINDABELLA GARDENS, home of Australia’s BLACKSPOT BUSTER roses, announce the upcoming release in Australia of the second in the unique EYEOPENER SERIES TM roses. This release flags a generational change in roses. EYEOPENER roses have eyes! Decades of breeding, using the very rare Hulthemia persica (syn Rosa persica) have resulted in fixing an EYE at the base of each rose flower, reminiscent of peonies.
In 1974, English rose breeder Jack Harkness, began a quest to incorporate the eye at the base of Rosa persica flowers into modern roses. Unfortunately, persica offspring were very weak and prone to terrible bouts of disease. They were very ill thrifty and mostly sterile. Rosa persica was in fact not a rose at all it was later determined by botanists and reclassified as a separate sub-genus Hulthemia. Incredibly though, Harkness managed to raise 1 fertile seedling and named it “Tigris”.
In the early 1980’s another English rose breeder, Chris Warner became enchanted by the “eye” and while still an amateur, managed to buy a plant of “Tigris”. By a stroke of genius, Warner made crosses with an erstwhile unheard of rose called “Baby Love”. This rose was later in the 1990’s to become the breakthrough parent used by rose breeders all over the world, to overcome blackspot and mildew. It is a parent of “Brindabella Bouquet” released in Australia some 5 years ago, which remains completely resistant to blackspot and mildew.
From his early crosses, Warner produced 6 seedlings in 1986 naming them Tag, Tog, Tug, Tingle, Tang and Tiggle. The healthiest was Tiggle but after years of crossings with it, nothing worthwhile was produced. In another stroke of good fortune, Chris’ friend Peter James crossed a seedling of Tingle with his Blackspot Buster rose “Blue For You” , producing a free flowering floribunda named “Rose Peony”. The flowers have 2 rows of petals that start out cream in the bud and open to pale mauve/white with a large dark purple/red eye in the centre. Stamens are golden yellow which show up beautifully against the purple eye.
Chris and Peter have produced a number of other coloured Eyeopener roses from these crosses which will be released in due course .
This is a fairytale story where hard work and good judgement have melded to produce a truly wonderful new rose plant for gardeners everywhere.
The flowers
are reminiscent of peonies, and are produced freely.
Repeat flowering is good. This rose is a Brindabella Blackspot Buster™ and
so is wonderfully easy to grow*. Bushy growth 1.2m X 1m.
*EYEOPENER and BLACKSPOT BUSTER ARE TRADEMARKS OF BRINDABELLA COUNTRY GARDENS AND MAY NOT BE USED WITHOUT PERMISSION.


 


Brindabella Blackspot Buster roses are bred for low or NO blackspot,

so you can plant them with confidence.They don't sulk with bad bouts of defoliation caused by

blackspot like other roses. They have the vigour to flower more and always look good in the garden.
