Re: Rose “Ploids” made easy by P Wright

Yes, Karl, it was a lot of work, but it TAUGHT you what you have used through today. And, it was FUN, wasn't it?

Re: Rose “Ploids” made easy by P Wright

Congratulations! I learned SO much be simply reading MR 8 thirty-plus years ago. I began by looking up the roses I knew, then searching everything beginning with "blue", then "gray" and "grey", then on down the line for colors, then stripes and any other variegations I could think of. I followed the...

Re: Rose “Ploids” made easy by P Wright

Much of that information is on Help Me Find-Roses and should be visible to you as a basic site viewer. If you want to be able to research parentage, the Premium $24 a year membership is well worth it. And, being able to see living color photos (some of them even really pretty good!) is rather nice, ...

Re: Rose “Ploids” made easy by P Wright

Thank goodness for all of the wonderful fertile triploids which make crossing with the real oddities possible! There were no hybrids with R. Minutifolia until Jim Sproul's L56-1, which definitely breeds like a fertile triploid. Ralph Moore's Golden Angel, which begat Torch of Liberty, which begat my...

Congratulations, Julie! Oh, neat! Another fertile triploid with which to play! They provide such interesting, odd results when crossed with weird things!

Re: Barden Atomics - Dakota Redwing

I'm glad that's still around. I am now growing a small start from Paul of his Tajique, sibling of Mel's Heritage, an 0-47-19 X Crepuscule seedling.

Re: Needing some direction

Hi Will, I am so sorry for your loss. Commissioning a rose to be bred in your wife's honor is a romantic, lovely idea. It may not be realistic, depending upon your budget. Those who raise commercial roses, usually charge several thousand dollars and more to attach someone's name to a rose which may ...

Re: Pollen from Canary Bird

I live in an odd climate. We're very coastal, being nine miles from the Pacific Ocean, and "summer heat" often doesn't arrive until August, September or October and "spring" hangs around from January/February until then. Often, we'll have high pressure systems blow through, pushing the "heat" up a f...

Re: Pollen from Canary Bird

I'm sorry. You might investigate if there are any listed on Help Me Find or request on Face Book who grow it in your country. There ARE ways to find out such information and it will take a little investigative work. Good luck. I don't grow it. I do have Xanthina, my 1-72-1Hugonis and its hybrids but...

Re: Pollen from Canary Bird

You might find it easier to obtain your pollen if you access the Spinosissima Roses Face Book page. If people anywhere have what you're looking for, I'd imagine they would be there. Len Heller likely grows it and may be of assistance. https://www.facebook.com/groups/540318416355334/ Actually, per hi...

Don't feel badly. 99% of us wouldn't have any idea what any of them really are.

Re: Apples and Oranges

Leonidas, Brown Velvet, Black Tea, Jocelyn and Victoriana were all much more "brown" in cooler weather and more orange in hotter. I imported Brown Velvet from Harkness in Britain the year before Edmund's began offering it (I knew mine didn't have RMV!) and that color shift from orange to the purple ...

Re: Apples and Oranges

Perhaps Brown Velvet and Leonidas are from similar actions?

Hi Karl, did you count Ernie's ploidy? It isn't listed on HMF as triploid and that should be something we'd like to add if it is known to be. Thank you.

Re: Apples and Oranges

Whomever still grows Orangeade and Angel Face should make a ton of that "gray with orange edge" cross to see if something like it might result again.

Re: purple stamens

There are many with red stamen. Think Dainty Bess and White Wings to name just two.
