Re: Disease resistance

I'm not aware if the mechanisms for acquired immunity exist in the plant kingdom, but I would be inclined to say that if such were to exist, antique roses would be pretty bullet-proof.

Re: Rootstocks and Flower Color

Wondering what "R. odorata ISU 5710-2" is...
Why is it unfortunate that own-root roses seem to be the future, if I may ask?

Thanks. None of those explains it. I had actually re-attempted from scratch a second day, copying from a wordpad document, pasting and resubmitting.

Re: Private messenger not working?

There is clearly a character limit. Shorter messages make it to whomever I might PM, whereas the long-winded novella still gets the same error message. I'm surprised there isn't a widget of some sort doing a character count and limiting the size of the message. "That hasn't seemed an issue previousl...

Re: Moving micro minis indoors

Well, when, after a very brief "outing", I moved some tender young seedlings back indoors to avoid the heat and drying winds this spring, I found a moth had laid an egg for a cutworm in one of the pots (those can do a number on young seedlings in short order!) aphids appeared, and then later, whitef...

Well, I was able to reply to you, Kim. Thanks. It might be the length of my other message that is the problem. I had saved it, and attempted to copy and send again to no avail. I'm guessing there is a limit on characters or something...

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit

Rob, Kimberly is intriguing. I'm germinating my first o.p. Woodsii's and excited at the prospect of working with such. If you ever get your hands on that Louis Riel you're seeking, I'm thinking there's a match made in heaven. (I wonder if LR's caninae meiosis wouldn't be largely broken down after su...

Re: Self-Incompatibility

"It is odd, though, that she found Rosa setigera to be strongly selfing."
A strongly selfing dioecious species? That's a pretty neat trick. Tends to make one question the other findings in that paper, however.

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit

Joe, I think you are essentially correct, though I seem to recall that both you and I got chastised for using the terms vertical and horizontal to mean high-resistance to single strain, and multiple strain resistances respectively. ;-) (Okay, vert and horiz are a lot shorter to type! LOL)

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit

I too was going to suggest, Stephen, that the generalization you mention *seems* counter-intuitive. If I'm not mistaken, BS is a disease of warm wet climates, whereas for instance, mildew is more common in cooler humid (but less rainy) weather. It would seem then that roses of warmer wetter climates...

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit

Doorenbos' selection is one of which I have only learned this past year. It is also purportedly one of the more successful in the deep south, and definitely on my list to acquire at some juncture. Is it also tetraploid? Stephen, I think a good number of Basye's roses have some altaica somewhere in t...

Re: Star Roses won seven out of 11 most sustainable, hardy, pest-resistant

Ah... Thanks, Joe. The ploidy issue I'd be willing to beat my head against -- one knows relatively quickly if they are succeeding or failing. But the remontancy issue would be seriously frustrating. Giving garden space over to a plant for several years before even knowing if it offers anything to fu...

Re: Annual Quest for Louis Riel

That *is* an intriguing one. I wonder if the caninae meiosis can be overcome with the next generation, or even with selfing? Anyone out there have much experience with this sort of thing?

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit

Kim, I do like the look of that foliage. (Except for the ability to showcase a contrasting or complimenting bloom, I wonder if the average consumer ever even notices a roses foliage. I'm wondering when I started noticing/caring.) Warren, you've got another beauty there as well. I definitely have R. ...

Re: Star Roses won seven out of 11 most sustainable, hardy, pest-resistant

Thank you, David, for that tidbit on the architecture of the panicles! That's exactly the type of info I was hoping I might find in the thread on species, and is very good information to have. Joe's spirea comment suggests something I was thinking. The "not what folks think of as typical roses" issu...

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit

I'm curious Kim, is it the L56-1 that permits that dark coloring, do you think? It's rather surprising to me with the other parents in the lineage, but I have no experience with any of them. I *like* that deep wine coloring. Warren, to my eye, the round leaflets of the second seedling are appealing....
