Re: Seedling

I like the leaves and stems also and hope you will put up a picture when it fully opens. Nice one!

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

Stephen, This seedling and its sibling have been disease free in all the 4 years since germinating. I was excited when I saw the orange color as the sepals were opening but I’m happy with the buff color and the yellow eye. If only it would repeat. I did collect anthers so i’ll have pollen to work wi...

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

Thank you Margit. I would agree with you. It’s great that the foliage stays clean all season as well.

Thank you David. I don’t have a good sense of smell but I’m told that it does have scent.

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

The open blossom is a 3” single, buff color with peach highlights. Hopefully it got self pollinated before I took the stamens for pollen to be used elsewhere.

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

The iPhone doesn’t capture reds and oranges very well. This bud is vivid orange as it opens. I look forward to seeing its color in full bloom and use its pollen in some crosses.

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

Rob, I was talking about whichever MMPP was blooming on HMF...did you decide that might be a self rather than a cross? My personal feeling is that it is highly unlikely that we'll get rebloomers in the first generation from using PP pollen. I'm slightly more excited to try it again these days...it ...

Re: Kind of starting new

Sorry for your losses Joe. I had a kind of similar experience two seasons ago. Mine were in pots outside for the winter. zone 6-7. I lost at least half of my breeding stock and many seedlings. Leaving the post in an upright position and allowing water to sit and then freeze was the issue...I think. ...

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

Joe, I also have an "Orange Surprise" x PP. The leaves are more like mom but the thorniness points to PP as dad...also that it hasn't bloomed yet for me. Pics attached. Orange Surprise is from Larry Davis and is: (Carefree Beauty x Rise n Shine) x (Carefree Beauty x Austrian Copper) Also attached is...

Re: t Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

I've been scanning the Prairie Peace descendants on HelpMeFind. Rob, how is your MMPP1, doing? Repeating? Any signs of PP heritage? It would be a breakthrough, perhaps, if we could establish beyond reasonable doubt that PP could pass on rebloom. Thanks for posting the pic of my DKOPP, Rob! I was li...

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

It will be interesting to see if this can create reblooming seedlings, Rob. I think the theoretical proportion will be 1 in 6 rebloomers when crossed with a reblooming rose. I imagine you'll be putting it on yellows (or yellow minis?). Congrats on this one and the fact that it remains healthy. Joe,...

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

Hi Margit. Thank you. I was lucky to have made the cross when I did. Clare suffered badly with BS and defoliated. Unfortunately I lost Clare that winter.

I hope there is a second flush. Still waiting on the sibling to this one to bloom.

Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

This is the first bud on this rose. I peeled back a sepal and it's yellow. I"ll post a picture of the full bloom. This plant is thorny and disease free. I'll try using its pollen this season and hopefully get a reblooming F1. I'm assuming that since this took 3 years to bloom that it won't repeat. I...
