Seeking R. foetida group pollen

Anyone have pollen from any of the R. foetida species roses available? I am specifically looking for Persian Yellow, Austrian Copper, and the single version of R. foetida. Looking for the "pure species" version of the pollens.

Thank you in advance

Andre

Re: Looking for Some Varieties

Just wanted to put this one out there again. I have obtained Orange Ruffels (I think it survived the winter) and have Prairie Sunset and I believe Doorenbos Selection coming later this spring. Unfortunately, I am still looking for the following: Golden Glow (Brownells climber not the HT) Atomic Whit...

Re: Seeking germplasm

I have about 5-10 suckers available of both (and a few other hybrid spins) as well. PM me and let me know if you are interested - my plants came from Joe about 5 years ago. Now that the weather is getting warmer I will be pulling them out in a few weeks to contain them.

Re: Aphids are Rampant Indoors

My grow room is in the basement in a corner of the utility room. So its very out of the way of pets and other humans. In the past I successfully used a weak tobacco water on my roses but I think someone on this forum told me that while it is good at killing unwanted critters it does something detrim...

Aphids are Rampant Indoors

Yet another aphid control question. I have tried almost everything I have read both on this forum and out there in the internet and I just cannot get rid of my extremely bad aphid issue on my seedlings from over the summer. I felt they were too young to put outside so I am trying to overwinter them ...

Re: Post Your Fave Seedlings & Their Blooms

I would say my favorite seedling I have bred is the one I named Far Out. Its parentage is Country Doctor X Knock Out. The blooms are just pink and semi-double at the most, but they can be up to around 5 inches across and come solitary to clusters up to about 50. Petals are many times fringed and usu...

Re: RRD Resistant Varieties

Lafter, from my experience, is an exceptional rose - I highly recommend trying it. I have never seen RRD on it despite all of its neighbors having it. It also has shown superior resistance to black spot, leaf spot, and powdery mildew. It is an upright and tall grower, about 6 feet when established, ...

Re: Re: 2018 Breeding results

Not at all as I don't grow it. I made the post as an answer to Kim's question, "What is Pinkerbelle." I remembered seeing it in my catalog from Edmunds' earlier this spring. It does look nice and might be worth getting next year.

Re: 2018 Breeding results

It was an early release from Edmund's Roses this year: (PPAF, Mar: MElvanoe) A lovely new hybrid tea that you have the chance to grow before its general release in 2019. Ovoid buds spiral open to reveal unique 4" blooms of cream suffused with tones of pink and lavender, and finished with a pink pico...

Re: Under-utilized species you feel might have merit

Three species I am intrigued with and don't know much about are R. blanda, R. gymnocarpa, and R. webbiana microphylla. First 2 I can find commercially in the U.S. but the last one is a bit difficult to locate here.

Re: Carefree Copper pollen

I like your thinking on using it to produce yellow colors. However... I have one seedling of I kept from Carefree Copper (more will be in the works this year). In 2012 I did a Dorcas (Buck) X Carefree Copper which germinated in spring of 2013 (it is on hmf if interested in seeing it). I was hoping t...

Re: High Country wishlist

Joe, I will admit that having a yellow species with a name that starts with "x" is pretty cool. I am hoping that it blooms for the first time this year - if the weather will stop being so fickle. Oh the things I want to do with this one... I have no clue how Top Gun will perform or how to use it as ...

Re: High Country wishlist

Joe, I found the variety Top Gun as a bagged 1 1/2 grade variety at Menards this past week (Menards is another big box home improvement store for those unfamiliar). When I purchased it I vaguely remembered something being said about its disease resistance and when I got home I looked it up again to ...

Re: Looking for Some Varieties

Awesome Stephen! That crosses one rose off the list. I think Doorenbos Selection has been on this list the longest so that's good to here I finally have a source.
