Reimer Kordes hybridized Rosarium Uetersen in 1977 from Karlsruhe (hybrid kordesii, Kordes, 1957) x seedling. It was named for the German rose garden that employed him as a hybridizer. It is a climber with a petal count of 100+, growing 6-12 ft. high and 6+ ft. wide. The medium to large blooms opens wide and almost flat and has a light scent and leathery green foliage. The color varies from deep pink to coral with a tint of silvery pink as they age. The bloom can be singly or in clusters which can get heavy and will tend to droop. It is disease resistant and will rebloom intermittently throughout the season.
I have seen Rosarium Uetersen in a public garden and also in a rose show where it always gets to the top award table. I saw this rose at its main flush and the deep rose pink color made a great statement. At the garden, it was growing draped over a pergola and the pergola was covered with huge clusters of deep pink blooms. I tried to look for it in some catalogs but for a while I could not find it. Then last year, I saw it and I ordered it. They must have changed the name because when the order arrived with the other roses, I could not find it in the box. As I was unpacking and checking my order, there was one rose left and it was Seminole Wind. I didn’t remember ordering it. Then the invoice cleared it up. Seminole Wind is Rosarium Uetersen. I have never heard of Seminole Wind before. It is always exhibited as Rosarium Uetersen.
Roses are not difficult to grow contrary to popular belief as long as you know what they need. Why do you think Roses have been around for millions of years? All they need are food, water and sunlight. Just like you and me.
