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.

Re: Four petals

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 ...

Re: Juvenile bloom in cold Hardy varieties

Very good news on a Therese Bugnet seedling showing juvenile bloom. That is a good sign that it will be a repeat bloomer. I haven't worked much with TB, but my understanding is that a rugosa may show delayed onset of rebloom. That is a frustrating characteristic for a hybridizer, as we would love so...

Seedling

Any time I have a seedling that defies norms I get really skeptical that a stray pollen grain was responsible...I just wish I knew which pollen it was! This is Highwire Flyer x 1113. 1113 usually produces compact, matte-blue foliage and single blossoms. This seedling ended up with glossy foliage and...

Re: Unusual seedling

"Night Quill" - groan. But also maybe a really cool name.
