"Comtesse Riza du Parc" Growing in Australia

By Di Durston, Tea Bag PRHRiA


Old roses have been notoriously passed around by slips from friend to friend and sometimes

names have been lost in time. It becomes easier to remember the rose that is growing in our

gardens by using a name like “Grannies Rose”.


Comtesse Riza du Parc”, the rose that we grow in Australia with this name, has unfortunately been misnamed at some stage in the import process when moving roses around the world. Some believed this rose to be the Tea Rose ‘Madame Charles’. The original rose is bred by Schwartz. France. 1876 and is a seedling of ‘Duchesse de Brabant’ syn ‘Comtesse de Labarthe’


'Tea Bag' Di Durston shares how she may have accidentally found a link in the chain of discovering the true name of this rose. Read about it HERE.

I really like this article, and especially love the samples of the actual rose, leaves, buds and thorns which is stuck to the A4 piece of paper. This is an excellent way to document in pictoral form the size, colour and characteristics of a particular breed of rose.

I have names of my overseas researchers, however I find that it is always a good thing to keep some information for another blog article. As you know I work as a one person research team of me and myself and I. 😉
