Re: I think I'm killing my seeds

I thought I'd post a pic of the blossoms of the embryo shown earlier in this thread. It's fun to have a picture of the embryo and the first (maybe second) blossom. This pic was taken June 11th, and the seedling is now planted out in the field somewhere...it is not blooming so I don't even know which...

Re: Easy diploid seed parents

Ophio, let us know if you get any juvenile bloom on your Scarlet Pavement seedlings. The rugosa pathway is tough, partly because of delayed remontancy. Scarlet Pavement x Blue for You is interesting.

Re: Variegated roses?

I've planted it in the field and we'll see how it grows. The problem is that winter dieback may kill the variegated branch.

Re: Variegated roses?

Attached is a photo of a small plant with variegation. How to tell if this is a virus?

rugosa x glauca seedling

Here are a couple of pics of a seedling that was part of a flat of open-pollinated seeds of Rugosa #3 that I had treated with triflurilan or oryzalin. I picked out seedlings that looked unusual to line out. I don't have any reason to believe that the chromosomes were doubled on this plant, however, ...

Re: Seedling

Here's another Art Nouveau seedling that just opened. (x Campfire)

I think this had been allowed to wilt, which might have influenced the bloom form...will be interesting to see future blossoms.

Re: Seedling

Philip and all, Your responses, now and previous, to the AN x R. carolina seedling makes me think I should try to move forward with that. I had been unimpressed for some reason but a blossom that odd is rare, I guess. What I'm noticing about AN seedlings with the "defect" is that the petals might no...

Looks good, Larry! Love the warm orange-pink that leans to orange.

Re: Seedling

A couple of Art Nouveau seedlings from the past...

The single one didn't even survive the summer in the ground...can't remember the other parent.

The double one is AN x R. carolina and maybe I should try to use it. It's out in the field and isn't super robust but survives.

Mine had four sepals, André. I couldn't tell how many sepals are on the newer buds.

Four petals

I realize it doesn't mean much since it's just the first blossom, but has anyone seen a rose with just four petals?

I'll let you know if the second blossom also has just four petals.

Re: Seedling

Here is a new flower to open. Blue for You x TUSPER (Tuscany Superb x Persian Yellow) This is on a big shrub that wouldn't have been able to bloom outside so I brought it in for the winter in a pot. Persian Yellow is somewhat doubtful as the true pollen parent of the pollen parent, since that seedli...

Re: Seedling

Regarding Highwire Flyer, I want to note that the stunning rose on the cover page of the A.R.T.S. webpage (linked to in another post) is Highwire Flyer. I hope they can look half that good up here in Zone 3. I noticed another young seedling of the same cross that also has the metallic foliage. In ot...

Re: Seedling

Rob, 1113 is a seedling of unknown parentage that has shown good health and a very nice rounded plant habit. See pic. As I mentioned, I think the Highwire Flyer seedling might have been from stray pollen from maybe a yellow rose, because 1113 seedlings usually don't have such shiny foliage and are o...

Re: Age of fertility

I see know reason why the very first blossoms wouldn't have viable pollen. It's kind of fun to get a pocket microscope with which to observe pollen. Someone gave me one of the little aluminum tubes, no batteries or anything, just about the size of a short pen. It's good enough to observe pollen grai...

Re: Kind of starting new

Paul, Isn't that odd? It makes one wonder if there are different genotypes called Hansa. I don't think I've even seen an OP hip on mine. I think I have a few Jens Munk this year that I can plant out. I'm still compelled to go down the difficult rugosa pathway in an attempt to combine cane hardiness ...
