Re: A Good parent for adding BS resistance

Continuous bloom in small sprays of 3 or so with nice cutting stems. It has really captured the attention of visitors to the garden.

Re: Looking for Some Varieties

I can help you with Doorenbos Selection. I should be able to dig a sucker or two.

Re: A Good parent for adding BS resistance

The picture of the seedling was taken yesterday. The seedling germinated in 2014 and has been in a succession of pots since. Its bloom color and form leans more towards 'My Stars.' The pink rose pictured is 'Seashell Sands.'

A Good Rose for Black Spot resistance

Foliage is looking great - hasn't been sprayed with anything since germinating.

A Good parent for adding BS resistance

A little known rose, 'Seashell Sands,' has proven to be both highly resistant to black spot and a fertile seed parent that successfully passes on exceptional blackspot resistance to its offspring. The seedling pictured is a cross with R. Moore's 'My Stars.' [attachment=2]Seashell Sands.JPG[/attachme...

Winner's Circle

Today I was surprised to find 2 OP seedlings from my very plant of Winner's Circle. Is anyone using this rose?

Re: Purples/Lavenders for breeding

Thanks Simon! That one is new to me. My plant of Novalis is very healthy (black spot & cercospera resistant) - time to try its pollen.

Thanks for your responses. Karl K - a big thanks! An article is about to appear in my newsletter featuring lavender/purple lightly petalled roses.

I have a niece living in the Sydney area - last name is Dunn. I'll tell her to be looking for 'Dunn Deal!'

Re: Purples/Lavenders for breeding

Joe;
I'd be glad to try it out! In fact, if you want to send me a jpeg and a brief description I'll feature a photo of it in an upcoming issue of Singularly Beautiful Roses. Do you have my email?

Re: DayDream (BAIeam)

I first saw it at the Hershey Rose Garden - a petite 24" plant. In GA it grew to 6' x 6'. Had some issues with BS and cercospera, but was generally healthy. Never attempted to collect OP hips because I'm not a fan of big plants with little flowers. In my humble opinion Pim's Golden Eye is much more ...

Re: Purples/Lavenders for breeding

Still trying to get a sucker of Ann Endt from someone. Our RHA editor has it and I'm in line for one when her plant obliges. Tuscany Supurb (never pruned/never bloomed) reached 7' this year - has anyone else seen that? Stephen

Purples/Lavenders for breeding

Night Owl, Stormy Weather, or Midnight Blue? I rogue plants that lose more than 50 percent of their foliage due to black spot. Has anyone used Poseidon, Florence Delattre?

Re: reds from KO/Home Run, etc...

Miracle On The Hudson has been been far and away the better garden variety here in middle GA (zone 8b w/ lots of humidity). Lots of apparently viable OP seeds this year - in the frig now.

Re: English Roses - finding good seed parents

I have used an older single-flowered DA rose named Ann - very black spot resistant here in GA. It has produced several generations of very healthy offspring. Will be entering a seedling in a trial.
