Re: About #1100

Larry,

--veering off topic already---

I was lucky to go about 7 for 7 pollinating a potted Above & Beyond this season. I hope I don't jinx it by bragging. Fat hips from Hazeldean pollen.

Re: Rising-Star-Honoree-David-Zlesak

Not bad, Rob. I'd say similar to Prairie Joy. Also similar in size - a larger plant. Blooms well. The blue-green foliage is nice. Can't remember for sure if I saw some leafspot on it this year.

Re: Rising-Star-Honoree-David-Zlesak

This is totally random, (and I'm sorry for the thread hijack, David!) but here is my seedling #1100. Probably High Voltage x Prairie Joy or something like that based on it's characteristics, but I've lost track of the actual parentage.

Re: How to efficiently handle 2,000 seeds

I should clarify that I transplant all of my roses prior to their first bloom, when they're about 2" tall or less. I put them into 4-pacs which translates to 40 plants per flat. Therefore, if you're planning to grow them to second blossom in the seedling flat you should disregard my recommended seed...

Re: How to efficiently handle 2,000 seeds

You'll have to work the germination technique that works the best for you, but I think your initial idea sounds good. It seems like Jim Sproul and Kim Rupert have good luck germinating in outdoor/greenhouse environments with no refrigerator stratification. (correct me if I'm wrong, guys) I think abo...

Re: My first yellow and salmon-pink flowers

Congratulations! Your Caroyal x Hazeldean is my style of cross. It looks a lot like Prairie Peace.

Re: RRD Resistant Varieties

Thanks Andre for that info. I might have to try it. The blossoms, from pics, are one of my favorite blossom types--semi double, peachy yellow.

Re: RRD Resistant Varieties

Interesting. A reblooming palustris? Interesting.

Lafter seems cool, too. That's just the type of blossom that I like.

I'm not really on top of things at all, but this is the first I've heard of any of the listed roses being resistant to RRD.

Re: Harvested hips

Thanks, Don. I appreciate your advice and insight. I agree that outdoor stratification would be ideal except for the whole -30F thing we get here. The natural leaching in a more temperate climate would be a big advantage. Mice would be a risk factor.f I notice you avoid saying fungi and fungicide bu...

Re: Harvested hips

I struggle with what I consider to be low germination percentages. I haven't kept good enough records to give you exact numbers, or maybe I could but I'm too lazy to go back and do the detective work. But I'd guess 15%. Every year I try some crazy new thing wholesale. There are just so many differen...

Re: 'Commander Gillette' X "3/4 Native"

Hi Tom, I remember that POITECOM bloomed in its first season, but I can't remember if FOLIOCOM did. I don't think I noticed FOLIOCOM until its second season, but it could easily have bloomed the first year...I just can't remember. It was one of maybe 20 seedlings of that cross. I got my R. foliolosa...

Here is FOLIOCOM, R. foliolosa x Commander Gillette. Reblooms. Sets hips. I might have some cuttings of this one to share in the spring.

Re: 'Commander Gillette' X "3/4 Native"

Interesting to note that you used it as a female, which is supposed to be difficult due to early pollen release and weak seedlings from selfs. (As noted on this forum by Kim Rupert citing Paul Barden and perhaps his own experience.) I had some seedlings of Commander this spring, can't remember the p...

Re: 'Commander Gillette' X "3/4 Native"

Nice, Tom. I think Commander is fun to work with. So fun to have no fear at all of encountering a thorn or prickle.

I've got some seed this year from Commander Gillette x Prairie Peace and x Ross Rambler #4.
