Thomas Clarke Wild’s sons Thomas E. Wild and Frederick C. Wild joined their father in the business in the early 20th century. In 1932, Thomas Wild retired from active management and his sons Thomas and Frederick worked as permanent directors. The first backstamp used by the company had their initials, but it was phased out around 1905. The second backstamp added Royal Albert to its name and the third was introduced in 1907. It was around this time that the Old Rose pattern was started. The pattern, designed by  Harold Holdcroft, has achieved sales of over 100 million pieces since its introduction and is still highly sought after today.

The company became incorporated as a Limited Company in 1933. One of the company’s highlights is the creation of their first royal items in 1897, to honour the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. Their products were originally called Albert Crown China, the company added Royal to the brand name in 1904 and this is named after Prince Albert, who was crowned King George VI in 1936.

08-27-7AM

The company had its first overseas agencies setup in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and US in around 1910. By 1970, the company was renamed Royal Albert Limited and in 1972 it became a part of the Royal Doulton group. Originally production of all Royal Albert items was in England but in 2002 it was moved to the company’s state of the art facilities in Indonesia.

Folksinger Rose

August 22, 2014

Folksinger Rose was bred by Dr. Griffith J. Buck in 1985 in the United States. It is a shrub rose with yellow flowers flushed with dark apricot-peach tones. Blooms are sweetly fragrant and double, born in small and large clusters. Foliage is dark red, leathery and glossy.

08-22-7AM

SOURCE

The Folksinger Rose is covered in stunning fragrant buttery yellow flowers with yellow eyes and peach centers at the ends of the stems from late spring to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has green foliage throughout the season. The oval compound leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color and the fruit is not ornamentally significant.

08-22-blog

SOURCE

This rose requires occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting bees to your yard. It will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

08-22-blog2

SOURCE

This rose should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.

07-24-7 AM

This English rose excels in its vigor making a large upright shrub quicker than most other roses. The three inch flowers are a clean yellow, very double, highly fragrant and are continuously flowering in summer and autumn.

07-24-blog

SOURCE

It has excellent shapely growth, forming a nicely rounded, slightly arching shrub with ample foliage. It is very reliable and easy to grow. An ideal rose to mark any celebration or important event. The flowers are initially Tea-scented but often develop a wonderful combination of sauterne wine and strawberry.

This rose can be grown in the ground or in a container, it is susceptible to blackspot and requires spring freeze protection.

Basye’s Purple Rose

July 18, 2014

‘Basye’s Purple’ rose has reddish brown bark, blue-green foliage, and beautiful single velvety maroon-purple flowers graced by purple stamens that are bright yellow at the tips. It is truly a royal rose. It was bred and introduced by Dr. Robert Basye in 1968 and is a cross between R. rugosa and R. foliolosa. It has wonderful bright green feathery foliage that is very much like its parent, Rosa foliolosa, and showing little of the rugosa characteristics.

07-18-7AM

SOURCE 

It will become a fairly large shrub of about 7 or 8 feet tall and at least as wide, with a very nice compact, arching habit. Like most Rugosas, this one repeats it’s bloom all through the season, although the individual blooms last only a day or two.

07-18-blog

SOURCE

It has a fruity fragrance, has an average diameter of 2.5″ medium, single bloom form about 4 to 8 petals and it blooms in flushes throughout the season. It is very hardy, vigorous and heat tolerant and does not set many hips.

Graham Thomas Rose

July 3, 2014

Graham Thomas rose was bred by David Austin in the United Kingdom in 1983. It is named after Graham Stuart Thomas, a British Old Rose expert. This is a bright yellow rose with the old rose shape. The cup shaped flowers are of medium size with fat buds and a radiant golden yellow.  There is a medium-strong, fresh tea rose fragrance and a hint of spice, with a cool violet character typical of its color group. It has attractive smooth green foliage and repeats flowering from early summer onwards.

07-03-7AM

SOURCE

This is one of the most widely sought-after of the English Roses. Although classified as a shrub rose, it tends to grow more vigorously and can be used as a sprawling climber in warm climates. Like other English roses, it offers the old-fashioned form and fragrance of old roses and the repeat-bloom characteristic of modern roses.

07-03-blog

SOURCE

This variety was voted The World’s Favorite Rose by members of the 41 National Rose Societies worldwide. It also won the James Mason Award from the RNRS in 2000.

Cadenza Rose

June 27, 2014

Cadenza was first bred by David L. Armstrong in 1967 in the United States. It was introduced in the US by Armstrong Roses as “Cadenza”. Cadenza is an excellent candidate for cutting and drying, as it tends to maintain its red coloration and doesn’t blacken with age. Clusters of ruffled red petals which fade slightly to burgundy are supported on strong stems. The bush is upright and angular with large glossy leaves and gives no indication of insect or disease problems.

06-27-7AM

SOURCE

Cadenza is dark red with mild fragrance and has an average diameter of 3″, it has medium to large double cupped bloom form with 17-25 petals. Cadenza is an occasional repeat bloom in the season and can be used for cut flower or pillar or shrub.

06-27-blog

SOURCE

Cadenza is heat tolerant and very disease resistant. To encourage re-bloom…  remove spent blooms, remove old canes and dead or diseased wood. It can be grown as a climber in mild climates and can be pruned to maintain a shorter habit.
