Re: 'Chinook Sunrise' met its sunset

I purchased on to see if it will be useful as a breeder and for disease resistance. So far it's healthy and the jury is still out as to being useful as a breeder. So far it's not looking good. I haven't actually seen a flower in bloom since I'm trying it out as a seed parent and take off the petals....

Divine Miss M was bred by Brad Jalbert I believe. This is a picture he posted on Facebook.

Earlier this month while visiting rose friend in NorCal, they showed me a variegated sport on one of their roses. DSCN6963.JPGDSCN6965.JPGDSCN6964.JPG
Kim,

Very cool. Do you know whether or not the flowers on that cane were also expressing variegation?

Philip,

I'm not sure what you were referring to. My comment was addressed to Joe. :-)

Re: rugosa x glauca seedling

Very attractive Joe! I love the leaf color and the bloom color as well. I hope yours has some fertility. The leaves are similar to 'Rugluaca' = (Rugosa #3 × R. glauca) x Self. 'Ruglauca' is a diploid and sets OP hips but I'm not having much luck with it as a seed parent in planned crosses. I did do ...

Helpful tip plant markers

I've wanted to reuse labels/markers from season to season for as long as they last to keep them out of landfills. Something I 'discovered' last season was Durafoam Magic Erasers. I used a branded name but I'm not sure I can name it here. There are generic versions out there too. It easily erases bot...

I like it Joe. The color, the leaves and the petal shape is different in a good way.

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

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.
