The Rosa genome and insights into domestication of modern roses

The April 30, 2018 issue of [i]Nature Ge­­­netics[/i] contains a study which concludes (this is a very simple summary that I hope is accurate) that scent, recurrent blooming, and color are controlled by some genes that work in opposition to each other, and that breeders' emphases on color and recurr...

Re: What about laevigata?

[quote="Karl K" post_id=67757 time=1525094674 user_id=1292] Somewhere I read a note about R. laevigata hips being consumed by livestock (of some kind) and the seeds sprouting where they fell.

Re: Assessment of genetic diversity in 29 Rose germplasms using SCoT marker

Henry, What did you learn from reading the paper? Maybe I missed something meaningful. Perhaps you can explain it better than the authors did. As I see it, the problems with the paper have much to do with unclear plan and poor writing, nothing to do with new techniques/applications. Elsevier is simp...

Re: Assessment of genetic diversity in 29 Rose germplasms using SCoT marker

I have read the article in question. It is incoherent, without plan, or nearly so, and generally not worth the time one might spend in reading it. It reaches no meaningful conclusions. Apparently it will go on the co-authors' resumes as if it were of scientific value.

Re: High Country wishlist

Agnes pollen has some viability. I discovered this in some crosses about 30 years ago. But I never got anything useful from the few seeds I got. See http://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.26244

what a species is, or isn't

When I began spreading pollen on roses in 1972, I didn't even think about rose species. But gradually I learned about [i]R. spinosissima[/i] and other species. And I learned (incorrectly) that species are unchangeable things. But since that concept did not account for obvious differences in how they...

Re: Hip ripeness revisited.

Tony, Go ahead and harvest it now. Hips of most modern roses will have viable seeds after approximately 3 months. I've had a few viable seeds in 2-month hips. If the rose does not get a lot of sunshine, a longer period may be needed, but usually 3 months is adequate. Germination seems to be better i...

Re: Propiconazole

Protecting roses against leaf diseases is the normal use of propiconazole. I'd agree that it's not a good idea to spray propiconazole (under any brand name) inside the house. If you've been doing that, stop it. Here is a brief article detailing some results of toxicity studies of propiconazole: http...

Re: Propiconazole

Henry, the first link is to a "select a website" page.

The other two links are to pages about possible health effects of propiconazole on humans or lab rats, not growth retardation of roses, decrease of germination rates, or other negative effects on roses (the context suggests this).
