Kordes Roses

Post  Blossom on Sat Jul 05, 2008 9:51 am

I've just planted some more roses and noticed one was labelled Kordes Rose. What is a Kordes Rose? Is it just a company or is there something special about the plants?

I also planted Jude the Obscure ( DA), Abraham Darby (DA) The Children's Rose, Papa Meilland, Angel Face ( Climber) but don't have any other Kordes Roses ( La Luna).

Hey Linda Cool

Kordes roses would have to be some of the best and most healthy in the world. Their breeding philosophy is simple... if it isn't healthy it dies and won't be used for future breeding and release Twisted Evil It's like a survival of the fittest strategy whereby seedlings are given no chemical treatments or assistance for things like blackspot and are planted in a field and left to their own devices. Normal garden cultural practices are still used however. Those that survive this form the foundation of future breeding and release. Makes a lot of sense really. They haven't always done this, however, so some of their older roses may not have the vigour or resistance that their newer ones have and since starting this I seem to remember that a few other breeders have also adopted this strategy.
