Rose Plant Name

David Austin Roses names its roses
Rosa 'Cultivar Name/ Introduced Name' (Registration Name or Breeder's Name - AUScerise is AUS for Breeder Code and cerise is the name). The 'Cultivar Name' is used by the public to buy that Rose and the Registration Name is used by the Trade to buy that Rose. Help Me Find will identify the retail name used from the Registration Name used on the label. See the RHS classification system, comment row in England's Rose and Rosa 'Wildfire'.

Rosa 'Bonica' - Class 5

(Syn.
Rosa 'Bonica '82',
Rosa 'Demon',
Rosa MEIdomonac')

Bred by Marie-Louise (Louisette) Meilland (France, 1981).
Bred by Jacques Mouchotte (France, 1981).

Common Name

Rose

Soil

Roses prefer acidic soil of pH 6.5 (sand) but will tolerate alkaline soils up to pH 7.5 (chalk). Mix 25 litres farmyard manure, or pulverized tree bark with bone meal, in soil before planting. Broadcast rose fertilizer in early Spring.

Tolerant of Poor Soils, so broadcast rose fertilizer in early summer as well.

Sun Aspect

Full Sun - continuous, direct exposure to 6 hours or more of sunlight per day.

Soil Moisture

Moist - Soil is moist without being soggy because the texture of the soil allows excess moisture to drain away. Most plants like about 1 inch of water per week. Amending your soil with compost will help improve texture and water holding or draining capacity. A 3 inch layer of mulch will help to maintain soil moisture and studies have shown that mulched plants grow faster than non-mulched plants.

Bushy upright shrub.

 

Suitable for growing:

 

"An excellent shrub bearing sprays of small, dainty, rose pink blooms repeatedly throughout the summer into the autumn. Foliage is healthy, dark green and glossy. A nice, tidy and spreading growing habit with plentiful foliage. Hardy. Excellent disease resistance." from British Roses .

"This excellent variety bears dainty clusters of attractive, small to medium-sized rose-pink flowers. It produces its flowers very freely and repeats well. If the flowers are not dead-headed they will be followed by a wonderful crop of bright red hips, which last long into the winter. There is a very light fragrance. It forms a nice, sturdy shrub with tidy, spreading growth and ample foliage. ‘Bonica’ is hardy, has little disease and is extremely reliable.  4 x 5 ft. (Meilland 1981)." from David Austin Roses.

"Pink, darker edges.  None to mild fragrance.  up to 40 petals.  Average diameter 1.5".  Medium to large, full (26-40 petals), cluster-flowered, in large clusters bloom form.  Prolific, blooms in flushes throughout the season.  

Bushy.  Small, semi-glossy, dark green foliage.  

Height of 2' to 5' (60 to 150 cm).  
Width of 4' to 6' (120 to 185 cm).

USDA zone 4b through 9b.  
Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower, garden, hedge or landscape.  
Hardy.  produces decorative hips.  
Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant.  
Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  Requires spring freeze protection .
Can be grown in the ground or in a container (container requires winter protection).

There are apparently at least two Meilland roses named 'Bonica'. The first one, a red version, and this one, the better-known (later) pink version.

In September 1998, the Montreal Botanical Garden (Le Jardin Botanique de Montreal) carried out a survey of its roses' resistance to black spot, powdery mildew and rust. This is one of the outstanding varieties which showed a 0% to 5% infection rate. The data was taken on well-established roses.
In his garden in Norfolk, Robert Wharton, of Whartons Nurseries Ltd., reports the best rose varieties in his garden are:

  • 'Flower Carpet Pink',
  • 'Flower Carpet Sunshine',
  • 'Flower Carpet White',
  • 'The Fairy',
  • 'Arthur Bell',
  • 'Bonica',
  • 'Ballerina' and
  • 'Jacques Cartier'.
 " from Help Me Find in America.

"Bonica has been widely sold as the penultimate hedge plant. It has one very long period of flowering followed by a few flowers until late autumn. Ruffled pink, slightly cupped blooms are produced in great quantities. It has also been successfully marketed as a landscaping, groundcover rose (a marketing term I detest), and a container rose. Introduced in 1985." from Rogue Valley Roses.

"Ideal for a low hedge or mass plantings. Excellent. One of the World's favourite roses, inducted into the Rose Hall of Fame 2003." from Treloar Roses .

Modern Roses: 19a English Roses

David C.H. Austin OBE (born 1926) is a rose breeder and writer who lives in Shropshire, England. His emphasis is on breeding roses with the character and fragrance of Old Garden Roses (Gallicas, Damasks, Alba roses, etc.) but with the repeat-flowering ability and wide colour range of modern roses such as Hybrid Teas and Floribundas. Though Austin's roses are not officially recognised as a separate class of roses by, for instance, the Royal National Rose Society or the American Rose Society, they are nonetheless commonly referred to by rosarians, at nurseries, and in horticultural literature as 'English Roses' (the term he uses) or 'Austin Roses'.

Modern Roses: 19b Patio Roses

"An excellent new group, somewhere between a miniature and a floribunda in character. They are larger and more robust than miniatures, frequently having charming rosette flowers and neat, bushy growth. They are hardy and repeat well." from David Austin Roses.

Modern Roses: 19c Miniature Roses

"Miniatures grow to a height of between 12 and 18 inches, sometimes more according to growing conditions. They have been greatly improved in recent years and the newer varieties include some excellent bushy plants with prettily-formed flowers. They are useful for window boxes and tubs as well as very small gardens." from David Austin Roses.

Modern Roses: 19d Dwarf Polyantha Roses

"These have small rambler-like flowers produced in large, closely-packed bunches. Polyanthas are extremely tough and flower continuously. They form short, compact bushes ideal for the front of borders. These pretty little roses have recently enjoyed a return to popularity." from David Austin Roses.

Mottisfont Rose Gardens It is still regarded as a masterclass in how to combine roses with other plants:-

Our walled garden is one of the most famous rose gardens in the world, forming a range of colouring, style and fragrance that has never been surpassed. Created by Graham Stuart Thomas in the 1970s - one of the most important figures in 20th century British horticulture - it is home to many varieties that may otherwise have become extinct.

If you’re inspired by the scented sights of our gardens and want to try growing roses yourself, here are some top tips from Assistant Head Gardener Jonny Bass:-

  • Healthy root system – Here at Mottisfont we use Mycorrhizal fungi religiously. It’s added into the soil around the roots when planting and will create a beneficial or symbiotic relationship with the plant to help produce new, fibrous roots.
  • Food – You can’t beat a good dose of well-rotted manure. Either dug into the soil or used as a mulch around the roses it will give excellent results and it’s 100 per cent organic and natural.
  • Pruning - When pruning your roses don’t be afraid to get stuck in. It’s important to have strong new growth coming up from the base and you should be looking to cut out some of the oldest wood every year."

Comment

"Bush roses were bred for use in formal rose beds. The large-flowered bushes are best for formal rose beds near the house, and for cutting. Cluster-flowered bushes are ideal for beds of showy colour and could also be planted in groups at the front of a shrub border, or even singly. Cluster-flowered bushes are better suited to poor conditions, especially wet areas, because their flowers withstand rain better.

Choosing bush roses is a matter of personal taste, but there are do’s and don’ts. Choose either large-flowered bushes or cluster-flowered bushes. Do not mix them – the results can be very messy. Neither should varieties of large-flowered bushes be mixed in the same bed because mixed colours take from the effect of formal elegance.

The more showy cluster-flowered bushes can be mixed, but stick to two or three varieties – avoid the ‘fruit-salad’ effect. Try to match the varieties for height – use the taller ones to the back, or the middle of a bed, mixed border or island bed – and choose complementary colours. Research the variety and try to see it growing – visit St. Anne’s Rose Garden, Clontarf, Dublin, or a rose nursery during the flowering season.

Standard roses are used in the middle, or at the back of large rose beds, to add some height. They have long been used as specimens on their own, but less so nowadays. They could also be used in groups, or singly, in a shrub border behind low, non-competitive plants to give summer colour.

Being true shrubs, the shrub roses are best placed among other flowering and non-flowering shrubs. They bring colour to a shrub border in late spring and early summer. The shrub roses can also be planted as specimens on their own and some of them make good informal, secure hedges

The climbing habit of growth of climbing and rambling roses makes them ideal for covering walls and unsightly large objects. They can also be grown on flowering garden trees to give more interest, or on an old tree stump, pillar or pergola.

Miniature roses have become very popular for patio and container growing. They can also be used on rockeries, and as house plants." from Using Roses in the Garden by Ireland's Gardening Community.

An ADR rose is a winner in the German ADR rose trial (Allgemeine Deutsche Rosenneuheitenprüfung). No chemical pesticides have been allowed since 1997 and breeders often describe the trial as among the most challenging in the world.The trial is set up by a working group that includes the Bund deutscher Baumschulen (German nurseries association), rose breeders, and 11 independent trial stations in Germany. The trial results are analyzed by the Bundessortenamt (Federal Office of Plant Varieties).

Roses are tested over 3 years and criteria analyzed include disease resistance, hardiness, attractiveness, and habit. About 50 cultivars are judged annually and more than 2000 cultivars have been tested since the award's creation in the 1950s. Roses that no longer fulfill quality standards have their certificate removed. As of November 2013, 161 cultivars are recognized.

The Halycon Days Rose is an ADR rose.
