Re: Harvested hips

Thanks for posting, Rob! I like the Gaye Hammond crosses. Morden Blush x Hazeldean...what does that one look like? Do you have it or did you get pollen? Campfire, although I'm not big on it for disease resistance, can give bloom power and good color saturation. I have a Prairie Joy x Campfire that h...

Re: Has anyone used Secret Garden Musk Climber in breeding?

I would like to try it...sounds like a delicious fragrance. I would keep it in a pot and cross with hardier roses.

Re: Show-and-tell from last season?

Hi Philip, To me it seems unlikely that the patent office is going to scour the historic internet for a rose that looks like the one for which a patent is being applied...so I'm more inclined to relax a little about sharing seedling pics on here, as long as they are not given a name. If you post a p...

Re: Remontancy

The OP Will Alderman have surprised me with the amount of growth they've put on, which is still not much but they appear to want to survive at least. I'm a little disillusioned with rugosa crosses as the blossoms seem to be inevitably smaller and shorter lived than those of either parent and they sc...

Why in the world would they discuss RRD? That doesn't sell roses. None are immune.

Re: Identification request

And upon looking up Alika on HMF I see it was a Hansen selection and yes indeed it looks just like this including the hips.

Re: Identification request

Gosh, I hope not. I've had Alika and it was a dog, suckering like mad and getting spots. For me it was more arching and less bushy than this photo. However with this lady being in North Dakota there might be less disease pressure and she is in Zone 4a rather than my 3b, which might affect the plant ...

Foliage and hips. The hips had about two or three seeds each.

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

Rob, Yeah, I'd toss RD x Suzanne if I were you. Campfire and Never Alone get some quite severe spotting here. My Never Alone died out but maybe I didn't give it a good chance. Campfire survives well and passes on excellent rebloom and color saturation, but I'm definitely concerned about blackspot su...

Identification request

The attached photos are from a lady in Cooperstown, ND, Zone 4. This rose she bought from Gurneys circa 1960. It is a Winnipeg Parks color. Once blooming. Healthy and tip hardy. It appears to be semi-double. The leaves are somewhat rugose but not full-on rugosa. She brought me a branch and I might b...

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

Rob, my reblooming F1's of FIVI3 also give me that same uncertainty of their parentage...they're just so different from the non-blooming seedlings. It is a good idea to cross FIVI3 with miniatures. Most seedlings of FIVI3 are enormously vigorous, so it needs to be tempered with miniature genes. I'm ...

Re: Cercospora

Julie Overom says cercospora is her number one problem. Almost all roses get it eventually. David's first sentence is stunning, "I don't know of any roses in my garden that don't get any cercospora." So although I have many roses that seem clean, I know my cercospora pressure isn't as high. I do kno...

Re: Moving micro minis indoors

I was going to say spider mites before I read Larry's reply. A lot of my roses that I order from I think Chamblee's come in with some sort of mites. I put them in the greenhouse and the mites go crazy. Robert Rippetoe told me that those mites die if they're under water for 60 seconds, so I should ju...

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

Hi Rob! I haven't been focused on the micro-minis. Every once in a while I'll get a very dwarf plant but I don't think that's the same thing...they seem to lack vigor and I usually discard them. I would be happy with a very compact plant or a low, spreading habit. Minis might be useful to tame the m...

Re: Self-Incompatibility

My R. setigera var. serena set tons of OP hips with seeds in them. I was very curious to see what nearby rose had pollinated them, since most of the other species roses were done blooming before R. setigera started. The interesting thing is that out of hundreds upon hundreds of OP seeds exactly zero...

Re: Identifying and filling niche markets

Hi Rob, I can't say that I'm currently focused on micro-minis. I just want hardiness, health, rebloom, and a neat plant habit. I think low-growing landscape roses can be obtained both by using minis and by using roses that spread horizontally like the Drift roses. When I get dwarfed seedlings I usua...

Re: Self-Incompatibility

Interesting that R. nitida is strongly selfing. I pollinated a lot of opened blossoms last year, kind of assuming that self-incompatibility would help counteract my sloppy emasculation. I was impressed by how readily nitida seemed to accept foreign pollen. R. foliolosa, too, was very accepting of mo...

Re: Remontancy

Don, my soil is too alkaline for rhododendrons. Rugosa roses are borderline in this soil, too, which is another reason I want to cross them with moderns. Plazbo, my OP Alderman seedlings that bloomed as juvies are seeming pretty weak. I doubt they will amount to anything. I do, however, have some ju...

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit
