Looking for miniature rose Bambino

Does anyone know of a source other than Heirloom or that is growing this and can share some cuttings?

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

Marty, I'm hoping that you are right that there is an inadequately tapped market for micro minis. What I'm looking for is parents that not only set seed well, which is important, but that are very disease resistant and cold hardy. I'd ultimately like to develop micros and miniatures that are hardy t...

Re: 2018 Breeding results

It was an early release from Edmund's Roses this year: (PPAF, Mar: MElvanoe) A lovely new hybrid tea that you have the chance to grow before its general release in 2019. Ovoid buds spiral open to reveal unique 4" blooms of cream suffused with tones of pink and lavender, and finished with a pink pic...

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

Joe, I've been considering tossing RD X Suzanne for a while. All my F1 have yet to bloom after 2 seasons. Campfire and Never Alone get a wee bit of BS. It's not enough to bother me and I select resistant roses to pair up with them. So far, that's working for me. 95% of F1 are very healthy. I have a ...

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

Joe, lol My yard is small and a pot ghetto. I keep large shrubs like Red Dawn x Suzanne pruned to a reasonable size. I had my first repeat bloom on her this week. I'm not getting juvenile blooms in F1 from her though or even second season blooms so I'm not sure how much more effort I'll put into her...

Joe,

FIVI3 is very healthy here. Getting healthy F1 is proving to be a challenge but I will continue using it.

Re: Cercospora

Off the top of my head, these are pretty clean of cercospora so far this season: Morning Magic, Cape Diamond, Quadra, Canadian Shield, Top Gun, "Fire'n Spice", Basye's Blueberry, 'Red Dawn x Suzanne', Thor, and Campfire. I have a number of seedlings out of Morning Magic that show a very high resista...

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

The large majority of my FIVI3 crosses didn't bloom, but there are a handful that have including a White Out x FIVI3 that seems very different than either parent and is quite compact. Congrats on your results with minis so far! It's always fun to find seedlings with excellent disease resistance and...

Re: Moving micro minis indoors

Ha Ha Good one Joe! I wanted to take cuttings now, from some micro minis, to root much the way Larry does (bag method). I'm zone 7 but have had winter losses of some promising roses that should be hardy to at least zone 6. So, I was thinking that I could over winter these cuttings in my basement und...

Moving micro minis indoors

I'd like to move a few potted micro-minis indoors to be able to root cuttings and let them fill out again. What can I expect in regards to pests and how can I nip pest issues in the bud...so to speak. :-)

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

Stephen, Glad to see someone else is enjoying micro minis. I have three (possibly a few more) right now. They are BYRepp1, BYRepp2 and BYRoepc. I'll get pictures up for the 2nd and third soon. I have one pic of BYRoepc up on HMF right now. BYRoepc might be a bit small to take cuttings right now but ...

Re: Self-Incompatibility

Kim Rupert's Orantida is a good example of nitida accepting foreign pollen and Orantida is proving to be very fertile as it self-pollinates and accepts foreign pollen readily.

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

Hardiness, species toughness, compact growth habit, and repeat bloom. How do we accomplish this? I have vague ideas of creating a tetraploid rugosa, crossing it with virginiana, and then recovering repeat somehow. That doesn't address the compactness. Pierre said in another thread that he is succee...
