Re: Rugosa roses disease resistance

This information accords with the trial and error I've experienced in my garden over the years!

Re: Grow light recommendations

Probably the plain ol' T8 shop lights will be the most light for your dollar. I have a 55-gallon fish tank with (of course) real plants, and the light fixture is a special red, white, and blue LED (purchased on Amazon) that is supposed to provide all the kinds of light the plants need.

Re: Lemon Fizz x R. carolina

Re: Persian Yellow

By the way, High Country Roses carries Austrian Copper. They are probably sold out now but usually have a new crop of all varieties coming along by early spring.

Re: Persian Yellow

These are some pictures Michel took when we went on a picnic to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in June 2013. Two shots of Persian Yellow, one close-up of Austrian Copper. The colors really are Technicolor quality in person--you can see why rose hybridizers have been drawn to them for so long. Bet...

Re: F2 Virginiana Hybrids

Interesting how the other parent has an effect on the fuzziness, Warren! This is a picture of 'Rose d'Amour', an old R. virginiana hybrid with an OGR. Whatever the other parent was, it definitely enhanced and encouraged fuzzy buds.
