Re: Show and Tell?

All beautiful Joe! I especially like those last three. What is "the native rose" that is pollen parent of number 3 in the first post?

Re: rugosa x glauca seedling

Hi Joe, I'd agree with your conclusion that your rugosa seedling came from glauca pollen. I got identical looking seedlings when I did that cross intentionally. You can see some old picture on HelpMeFind: https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.46846&tab=1 I tried growing out an F2 population but ...

Re: R. davidii

Hi Karl, I just planted palustris scandens. Is this the same as plena??? Whatever the case, the ForestFarm "davidii" is VERY different from scandens and both other collected palustris that I grow (one from very close to home and the other from about 4 hours east). It's also very different from all o...

Re: R. davidii

Yes, thanks MidAtlas/Stefan! I looked at the davurica pictures on HelpMeFind and elsewhere and I agree, it definitely looks closer to the plant some of us are growing labeled as davidii. And it's pretty healthy here too, Joe, whatever it actually is. Everything is healthy this time of year, but it's...

Re: R. davidii

Oh and I forgot to mention, the hips definitely don't look like the ones on HelpMeFind.
They're not so elongated but more rounded. But they also don't look like virginiana or carolina hips I've seen.
I'll try to get pictures of those this season too.

Re: R. davidii

Here's an old picture I found of the first plant I had years ago. The new one looks very similar. Both were from Forest FArm Nursery. I don't know what species this really is, if not davidii, but it sure doesn't look like any virginiana or carolina that I've seen. Slide1.JPG I'll try to get some bet...

Re: R. davidii

Joe, that's the same davidii I've been working with (from ForestFarm). I'd gotten one many years ago and then got a replacement for it that I've had now for 3 or 4 years. It's almost the size of yours now. I like the yellow and red tinted stems. We never have dieback on it at all, but then again we'...

Re: Some current pictures...

Thanks for the yellow parent suggestion Philip!!! Funny, but the only one of those I've worked with IS 'Carefree Sunshine'. I've been using 'Cal Poly' and 'Rise N Shine' in recent years because of their notoriety for being very receptive seed parents. I've gotten several seedlings from 'Cal Poly' us...

Re: Some current pictures...

Thanks Philip! I'll keep updating with pictures as the setigera OP seedlings develop more. And most definitely yes, 'Lemon Splash' blackspots terribly here, so I wasn't too surprised to see the seedling do similar. I had hoped it would take after the pollen parent more in health. That species cross ...

Re: Some current pictures...

Thanks Joe and Andre.
The mother of that purplish one has great Spring and Fall color but does turn green during the heat of summer (during bloom).
Here's how dark mama gets in the Fall:

I hope I'll eventually get one that stays this color all season!

Some current pictures...

Finally getting a chance to start Spring cleaning out in the yard so thought I'd post a few picture... A few years ago, I bought a plant of setigera from Prairie Nursery in Wisconsin. Apparently it's a female because it had loads of hips last year. I don't have any male setigera anywhere around here...

Re: Basye's Purple (F2) with thornless and black stems.

Nice job André!!! :)
The thornless black stem seedling and 10TT, are both very attractive roses.
Looking forward to seeing what you get from that 10TT X Golden Wings cross.
Best wishes always, Tom

Re: First germination of the winter

IMG_1057.JPG A warm spell back in January triggered some early germinations here. I had to bring them indoors. Still nothing else going on outdoors but I'm enjoying the foliage variations on these seedlings from pollen of F1 virginiana x arkansana (garden nicknamed "White Native") on 'Easy Does It'...

Re: Source of data on hip production by cultivar.

Amen, Don!!! I've personally found 'Fragrant Cloud' to be very difficult to get seed from, BUT... my current most promising lines are descended from a one time successful hip that set on 'Fragrant Cloud' from pollen of Rosa carolina. I've tried really hard not to discourage other people from trying ...

Re: Rosa (virginiana x arkansana) X spinosissima

I thought I'd replied yesterday but it doesn't seem to have "stuck"... Sadly, carolina x gallica is battling RRD here now. I'm hoping its rhizomatous nature might allow for a piece to escape infection, but it's a long shot. I can probably still collect a few seeds before it goes and I've already got...

Thanks Rob! By the way, is your Lemon Splash x "3/4 Native" seedling doing alright? I ended up with a handful of seedlings this season from "3/4 Native" pollen. It's pretty likely that none of mine will repeat bloom but I'm still encouraged enough to use it some more next season. Here's a current fu...

Re: Rosa (virginiana x arkansana) X spinosissima

Thanks Joe!
Johannes, the spinosissima I used was purchased as 'Double White Scotch'. I have a picture somewhere but can't seem to find it. I'll have to see if I can get another picture of it in the Spring.
