Thornless roses?

Post  siri on Sun May 18, 2008 1:43 pm

K-mart have a heap of "Smoothies" in stock at present. I thought I might try a few of them. Any comments? I'm wondering if they have bred them for no thorns at the expense of other good garden qualities, but I'm thinking they would be good down near the kids play area.
Cheers, Jan

Don't think they're rated that highly but haven't grown them and that's just what I've heard. Smooth Prince is supposed to be one of the best and here are some comments about it - http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/pl.php?n=5813&tab=32

Hmmm - pretty much as i expected. I would say they have bred them for smooth canes, at the expense of other good garden qualities.
They were $16 plus which is far too expensive when there are good quality roses for less than 1/2 that.
