Re: Best sources for virus free hybrid teas?

Foundation Plant Services at UC Davis. http://fps.ucdavis.edu/roses.cfm Obtain your virus indexed stocks as well as scions from them from what they offer. Don't wait too long for the old "tried and true" types as they filter out of the collection faster than you would hope. Otherwise, I know of no o...

Re: Stratification period?

We don't "DO" dormancy, Philip! But, I don't mess with Arctic hardy types, either, or those which I DO mess with, also have seeds which don't require an "ice age" to occur to yield germination. I don't touch Rugosas. Not that I don't like them, they HATE it here. When I was stupid enough to touch th...

I'm in Zone 9b, Central California Coast. I don't stratify any of them, period.

Re: can you identify this rose? Species??

Duane, multiflora is beneficial for areas with acidic water and soil. It isn't nearly as successful in arid alkalinity and it is highly susceptible to crown gall in the desert south west. For cold hardiness, it likely has benefits, but as with everything, you have to weigh the good against the bad.

Re: tissue culture

Ralph simply used one bud cuttings under mist. What he showed me wasn't anything special. He just cut up longer cuttings into pieces containing a bud near the top and struck them into perlite under mist. As usual, pretty much everything he stuck in that house rooted.

Re: Is sterility sometimes a physical problem, and not genetic?

At least in my climate, conditions and with the pollens I am using, I collect what I want when it's available then use it throughout the season until I'm either satisfied I've generated sufficient quantities of that cross or I run out of either pollen, seed parent blooms or energy. Apparently the po...

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit

It's possible the original double white he used may have had some fertility, but the ones we have here, now are a degenerative sport which has been propagated forever until that's all we have.

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit

Yes, Banksiaes are spectacular. In all the MANY years of haunting them, I have never found sexual parts in either double forms. I have found self set hips on lutea and every one of them have been empty. I've never found any on Banksiae banksiae. I haven't had Normalis in quite some time, but I had n...

Re: Seeking germplasm

Victor, are you proficient in propagating roses? There are several RHA members listed who grow both of these roses and you may well be able to obtain suckers, cuttings or bud wood from them more easily than you might retail ready plants. Len Heller is an infrequent visitor here but is more often on ...
