Re: In Memory...Kudos to John Jelinek

Hello to all of John's good friends on the Rose Hybridizers Association Forum! He had me look up the forum every day ...

Darlow's Enigma Cross

[attachment=0]H11-15.gif[/attachment] John had me plant this new cross of H11-15, which is 17A03 (Reach for the Skies) X Darlow's Enigma last year shortly before he died. It's turning out to be pretty! Everything's bursting out in full bloom in our garden this May and I'm struggling to keep up with ...

Re: Crazy winter weather!

I’m glad to hear the reports about early spring blooms in Georgia. I’m sitting in my rain-sodden house in Gladstone, Oregon. It hasn’t been extremely cold this year, but we did have about 10” of snow in January. The Daphne Odorata, Grape Hyacinth and Forsythia aren’t blooming yet. I wonder how the t...

Re: What rose is this!?

Hello Pasquale, I dug up a root and cutting from a wild rose that looked like this from a thriving patch by the roadside in Sooke, Vancouver, British Columbia. It was right next to the ocean. I put it in a plastic bag in the back of my car before taking the Ferry back to Port Angeles. The customs in...

Re: Thorough Testing

Hello Rob,

Heirloom Nursery has had some of my cuttings for testing for about a year now, but I haven' t heard from them. In the meantime, I have sent a couple of climbers and a shrub rose to Shreveport for evaluation.

On the other hand, the...

Re: Category: It's always something!

As for feral animals, the squirrels here in Gladstone, OR are well fed and don’t bother my roses hips. The neighbors put out peanuts, which are buried in my rose beds by squirrels and blue jays. I observed a crow that kept rooting out my newly planted Dusty Miller and threw it aside. There are Aruca...

Re: Category: It's always something!

I use 3-M blue masking tape and put it halfway around the plastic pots. It sticks, then I label it with black felt pens, which lasts a couple years. The cheaper blue masking tape made in China doesn't stick, so you have to use the 3-M brand. We don't have packrats here, thankfully. People around Yos...

Re: Yellow China

Concerning yellow roses to be used for hybridizing, a number of people have said their roses don’t do well in hot, dry areas like Arizona. I have looked over the yellow species and hybrids in the Random House Book of Roses by Roger Phillips and Martyn Ricks. They list R. Kokanica, R. Hemispheria, R....

Re: Yellow China

In reply to Steven Cook's inquiry, it was Lady Hillingdon's pollen that I used to pollinate Lilian Austin, and it produced 14E-04, registered as Apricot Hillingdon. It's been doing quite well, with a bush about 3 ft x 4 ft.
