Re: Color of hips Abraham Darby

Many patents will state hips and other odd traits, so be sure to check them. They're available to view for free through our government site. The data may be skewed to location of testing, but its likely to be in the ballpark if they state it at all.

Re: Color of hips Abraham Darby

Brite Eyes, its kiddo, turns bright orange for me. When I used to own Jude the Obscure, another kiddo, they always stayed bright green for me. Aloha, its parent, can get slightly tinged hips. Its other parent, Yellow Cushion, has a patent that state they can turn "apricot". I think the safest bet wo...

Re: Genetic determinism of prickles in rose

Pesky recessives :]

Well, whatever the case, Bonica and Summer Wind are good at either reducing or eliminating prickles. I have some linebred Dortmund types bred with Bonica. Zero prickles -- 7 years old now. One can see Meilland has also used Bonica in climbers for this exact reason.

Re: Seeds and RRV

It's not a pipe dream. Members like David work very hard at researching it. Anyway, the moral for members is that if a wholesaler or private nursery reads on any of these medias that a breeder has touched this stuff, they simply will give a hard no to working with the breeder. I don't want people to...

Re: Seeds and RRV

Hi, Stefan, I disagree, and this is why: RRD can wipe out an entire wholesale nursery and their reputation. Black spot cannot. RRD can force wholesalers to never consider one of us as viable, as well. Similar can be said about mom and pop rose businesses that drive our niche, personalized markets. I...

I'd nuke it to high heaven :] But that's me.

Its the #1 thing that threatens rose culture as we know it, in strong competition with the ARS doing a poor job at attracting millennials, and now zoomers, to our culture.

Re: Zaiger work flow

Due to living in the PNW and next to temperate rainforest, I have always had to time everything between the rains, but also the immense cool humidity during the nights during the May-June pollination season. In fact, I have had to extend pollinations into July frequently to accommodate for el nino/l...

Re: Splash and Dash equals Bad Technique?

I use splash and dash for new roses, seedlings I want to test. It's all about the metrics, and you have to go go go during pollination season. I take my time and often repeat the day after on important mother plants that will give me a lot of what I want or a plant that I would be okay with one mira...

Re: Sweet Spirit

Sweet Spirit may germinate better than some HTs since its descended from Peace no less than 7 times, as well as a descendent of Playboy on possibly more than one occasion. Many HTs have abysmal seed count and germination rate despite massive hips. That's one reason you will often seen a lot of roses...

Re: New black spot article out today

It further illustrates than one should not cull a really nice seedling just because it is prone to one type of BS on a minimal level. In the prior study, Sunsprite was listed as novel. Mine has retained all of its foliage since March, and has only now shown a few spots of BS on the very lowest layer...

Re: Sweet Spirit

Bloom size alone gives a higher chance SS is tetraploid, given how small the triploid DKO blooms are. Also, DKO is not as healthy as KO, but it has better behaved blooms and plant architecture. KO, in my experience, produces better colors. DKO and its mutations tend to breed washed out bicolors with...

Re: Current hips you are excited about?

Probably my 2nd generation Rosa glutinosa hybrids. I got 2 nice repeaters from that line this year, but I would like to see more from other seed parents so I can properly use this species in use with modern roses.

Re: full Ph.D. thesis "ASSESSMENT OF GENETIC VARIABILITY AND DEVELOPMENT OF HYBRIDS IN ROSA SPECIES"

Tom Carruth noted that 'Julia Child' presented itself alike in more climates than not, which seemed to imply part of its success. While its not a rose I like, I can see how this is favorable in certain roses. Especially floribundas where uniformity in plant habit over many environments is especially...

Bonica will also give prickle-free, despite being heavily bred from Rosa wichurana. Applejack can give heavily-reduced prickles.

If youw ant the rose ID'd, then we need mature rose size and plant architecture.
