Re: cherry frost & lemon drift

Julie, Thank you for the bit of history regarding the development and parentage of your Cherry Frost. It's always great for me to have an idea of the parentage of roses that I'm using a breeding stock. I've had CF one season and really like like what I'm seeing so far. I was pleased to see that it h...

Re: cherry frost & lemon drift

I am still a bit hesitant to give out the exact parentage at this time--I know the patent has been applied for but I have not heard if it has yet been approved. However, I can tell you that the mother was a seedling of mine that involved the use of Prairie Lass, Gizmo, and William Booth in its ulti...

Re: Coutts #4

RBx,

I'm hoping to get some good things out of Smoothie. You have a very interesting cross there. Resistance I bet is good. If you come up with a repeater I'd be interested. Thank you for the offer!

Second pic, a rose I call Black Anther. Ann Endt x (Bulls Eye x R. virginiana). Actually set some hips, which was cool.
Love this one. Interesting parentage. Well done Joe!

Re: Germination of crosses I'm excited about

A few more germinations that might be interesting:

Nyveldt's White x Oso Easy Mango Salsa (both diploids)
Royal Edward x (Clare Grammerstorf x Prairie Peace)
Neon Red x Cape Diamond

I have buds on Prairie Joy x Prairie Snowdrift and on Louise Estes x Frontenac seedlings.

Coutts #4

I have Coutts #4 which is: Coutts #1 x Hazeldean. Coutts #1 is (Rosa canina L. x Unknown). It's a cream diploid to zone 2a. I'm using diploid modern shrubs (Lemon Zest and Mango Salsa) and Polys (OSO Easy Peasy and OSO Happy Smoothie) trying to gain repeat bloom. Once I get repeat bloom I'll cross b...

Re: Germination of crosses I'm excited about

Good crosses, Rob! Thanks for breeding for cold hardiness. Why haven't I grown Quadra? If I come up with something promising I'm hoping you would have room to test for your zone. I've narrowed my breeding efforts and very hardy, disease resistant and floriferous bloom are my main focus. I also have...

Re: How common is this?

Chuck,

Do you still have this seedling and if so, can you give us an update? I have two Frontenac seedlings that are similar to your seedling.

Re: Germination of crosses I'm excited about

Thank you Brian. I'm hoping that others will post some of their crosses as germination starts. I sure hope some of mine will be good enough to post pictures of! When you go to HMF to look up some of these parents look at Quadra. Besides being very cold hardy and disease resistant, Quarda has somewha...

Re: When to expect Rugelda F1 first blooms

Rugelda turned out to have little resistance to BS and defoliated so I did not move forward with the plans. Your fully double red sounds interesting Duane. Was that an Rugelda self seedling?

First germination of the winter.

After two months stratifying, I have my first germination. The cross is Prairie Joy x Prairie Snowdrift. The excitement begins! 😊
