Re: Cercospora

Cercospora is funny. Some years almost everything gets it, esp. late in the yr. So far this yr, haven't seen a trace on anything. It has been very hot and since I am watering extra, I am taking care to fertilize extra. I have noticed that cercospora is very exploitative of low or unbalanced nutrients.

Re: Re: 2018 Breeding results

The center of that rose, 'Pinkerbelle' sounds Lovely. Not sure about the picotee part. Edmunds photo hints at what it could look like.

Re: Remontancy

Here is the presumed [img][/img](Rosa foliolosa x Henry Hudson) x Rosa woodsii. The photo seems to have gotten bumped. This plant seems to have been injected with some of that "hybrid vigor" stuff. Plant is on steroids but the blooms are still small.

Re: Remontancy

Joe,Here are a couple of quick blooming successes i have had with Henry Hudson--I have several Rosa foliolosa x Henry Hudson crosses that seem to cross with anything and have had pretty good luck with heat and they also seem quite drought tolerant (not xeriscape material, however). But with foliolos...

Re: Seedling questions

Thank-you. Did not know about the climbing canes and thorns, but makes perfect sense. This would also account for the fact that these particular roses, sort of a hedge below a large picture window, also try to reach 6-7' despite all efforts to curb them. They face south, get plenty of sun, but alway...

Re: First Impression x R.virginiana

Those two photos are both part of Joe's series with FI x R.virginiana. I am using the pollen from the apricot colored one and the first pink one (again pictured here) to make some crosses this year. Will see what pans out. Will soon have a few more blooms from the crosses made two yrs ago with #13. ...

Re: First Impression x R.virginiana

This one (No writing on tag, but same red stems, great foliage) seems to be a lighter version of #13. Kind of a nice apricot sherbet. Seems to take the heat well and is nicely fragrant. This is the first yr blooming for this one so it may be more prolific next yr. # 15,(pictured in first photo ) whi...

[attachment=0](R.virginiana-#14)_1242.JPG[/attachment]Joe, The plant is young-but not as vigorous nor with such good foliage as the parent. But no rust! I will give it at least until the end of this growing season to make those judgements, really. The 2nd one has better foliage and leaf but the flow...

Re: Nyveldt’s White x Prairie Peace F1

That is a nice flower. Difficult task to expect yellow from something that is so rugosa. I find that even without rugosa, PP loves to produce white or pink.

Re: First Impression x R.virginiana

Thanks Rob. It was a planned cross but something ate the top half of the label, so I am not sure what it was. I should go back to entering all my crosses on Excel but that just doesn't happen anymore. It is nice to have something to fall back on to double check. I do have another seedling but it is ...

Re: Could this be a sport?

Thanks. I do not remember seeing any seedlings here. It is between your DLfed and a papaya. Neither one of those seem likely donors. But that can't be ruled out altogether. Will take this plant out of pot this fall and check this out. The thing is that it does not act like a seedling. It is acting l...

Re: First Impression x R.virginiana

Joe, Here is one of two repeating offspring from FIV13. It is healthy, no rust here in Rust Central. I did discard the parent because I could not get it rust free for more than a month or two out of the yr. But I crossed it with a couple of more rust resistant cultivars and this is one of the offspr...

First Impression x R.virginiana

Here is another Joe Bergerson effort. The shrub wants to be in a much bigger container-some of the buds are aborting. Very pretty rose.[img] Approx.3" diameter. A sister is also blooming, more petals, a bit more lavender, maybe a bit larger. Both have very attractive red stems. This one is almost th...

Re: Priairie Peace Seedling

I guess it all depends on how healthy and how much you feed them. It looks like the DPKo x PP opens around 3-3 1/2" and matures to about 4". I did give them a little ferts this spring, so they are doing well. Both last yr and again this yr., it is an early bloomer and it blooms a bit longer than mos...
