Re: The perfect rose: 62 years in the making

I like it Joe. As for the possibility of "foreign" pollen, could the the color come "wayback" family members ?

Re: help with i,d.?

Daune, this might not be any help with the ID, but is it possible to back tack from the "local store", asking them their supplier, then back again or as far as you need to go. If ask nicely I have had great success this way. No harm in asking the "local store".

Hi Plazbo, It is possible to send cuttings/suckers to you but there is a but, A BIG BUT, cost, from this end(Australia), quarantine regulations, then, if your Dept of Agriculture allow it, quarantine your end.

Re: Some ploidy questions

Thanks Stefan, most of your answer I can understand. So if I was to have a cross with, lets say "Laevigata" with "Peace" one of Kordes most outstanding achievements. It has stood the test of time. It is possible it "could" work ?

Re: Recommendations for healthiest Austin Roses

No not at all Phillip, I honestly think they got onto his lines to sell a product "similar" to his. If by chance you want to know something in particular to one of Mr. Austins rose I could "try" to find some info for you.
