What the heck?

It takes 5 minutes to reply, now. It is like it is getting longer each time, and this issue wasn't happening with me when the initial others first complained.

Re: Champagne Wishes

It actually looked really good, but I have too many Bailey roses to use still, and I already had found Yellow Submarine to play with. CW was about the same color as French Lace, with somewhat "Buck-like tea" form, and what seemed like an upright plant. It looks really good so far. I have been using ...

Re: What do you do when you run out of pollen?

Be sure that the cups used are low on wax. The ones heavy on wax can melt into the reproductive parts at even moderate temps. I found this out the hard way :]

Re: The dangers of too obssessive, too "focused" selection

This is one f the reasons why I do 100% of my hybridizing outdoors. I believe that using greenhouses really crippled garden roses for the decades used, because it led to an unreality of specific traits over a holism of traits.

Re: Stipples and Stripes

Mary Susan x The Imposter, both stippled, resulted in a single, and not black spot prone, like both parents, Pernet-copper/orange seedling. it didn't have any stipples. Go figure. Yet, Sevilliana x American Honor did. The rhyme and reason to stipples, other than having species origin, is non-sense, ...

Re: Knock Out Dominance

KO, DKO, Pink DKO, Pink KO, Blushing KO, and Bubble Double are all inbred products. Bubble Double is a mutation, so I don't know how it will behave until germinations next year. This is to say that the first generation of outcrosses are going to be a lot like a KO, but 2nd generations can deviate. H...

Re: 1-72-1 Open Pollinated Seedlings

I usually don't use lineages with roses like Little Darling 3 or so generations in. And sometimes it gets worse: see Cathedral.

Re: Some seedling pics

I like both ideas a lot, and the color of both look good so far.

High Voltage x (Selfridges x Freedom) is germinating right now, but I just view it as a step to better yellows, since HV is so VERY mildew-prone, that I don't see the first generation from it being overly useful.

Re: Pernetiana Crosses 2012

Etoile de Holland, the bush version, is coming up everywhere, but the other Pernetianan lineage seeds are not really germinating. That is okay, because Etoile de Holland sounds fun, if the mildew and thin tissue can be dealt with.

Re: ROSES OF THE INLAND PACIFIC NORTHWEST Native and Invasiv

I used to live in Moscow, ID, which is 8 miles east of Pullman, WA, and both towns are littered with Rosa rubiginosa. Out in the wild within the Palouse and the state forest heading into Montana, Rosa foetida and Rosa foetida bicolor are prominent everywhere.

Homestead invasions, lol.

Re: Unidentified Species Rose

Double Knock Out is more of a pollen parent type. Rosa canina is always in pastels, and even its products come in pastels. However, it picks up color very, very easily. The same goes Rosa rubiginosa, but it picks up color less favorably. The color of this rose here is like Carolina/virginiana, etc, ...

Re: Unidentified Species Rose

Rosa canina is not glandular, does not have angular foliage, and is more smooth overall. Also, the blooms are a tad larger, and lighten towards the center drastically.

Re: Murphy

I tried Dreaming Spire x Bull's Eye. Its the only persica type, a climber, Im willing to have fun with. Otherwise, Id rather leave that tangent to others.

I'm currently growing the germinations of Midnight Blue x Bull's Eye for my friend that made the cross. He loves purple... obviously.

I have not had a problem with getting selfs, save for the more sterile cultivars, but I think it is the way I learn to process them. When the bud shows even the faintest of showing a petal, I strip it from its sepals, petals, and green male parts. I wait two days, to let the female parts develop and...

Correct. That is why I stopped using it, but I do use descendants that I created from it. Baby Love has more than just that going for it. The canina hybrid that I created from it, which bloomed in May, essentially made an 8' x 5' cascade of coral and peach-toned single blooms, looking very similar t...

Re: Baby Love

Baby Love produces masses of pollen, and like Pretty Lady, is highly male fertile. Do not use either for seed -- they're very similar.
