Re: Rosa sericea as a parent rose?

R. sericea is a very difficult species to work with. I never got any viable seeds from attempted crosses I made. I suspect this species will only work with other species in its own group. Years ago Gregg Lowery gave me a plant of R. Pteragonis, a cross of sericea pteracantha and R. hugonis . It loo...

Re: Rose Rosette News

I wouldn't dare conclude that the entirety of a species is resistant until a genetically diverse group of a large number of plants all display resistance. Resistant individuals aren't evidence of species-wide resistance. I have a Port Orford Cedar in front of the house that is ancient and continues ...

Re: Red Dawn X Suzanne pollen available

By the way, if I receive any requests for pollen where the person does not provide a full name and complete mailing address, you can assume I will ignore the request. I have no patience for folks who make me play a guessing game just to get a simple task like mailing pollen done. Thank you.

Re: Red Dawn X Suzanne pollen available

Paul, so very glad to see you back on the forum! How goes it with the little carnivorous guys? ;-) Hi Philip! I'm good. I've culled the Nepenthes out of the greenhouse (after five years I discovered - as many people do - what weeds they get to be.... no fun) and reassigned that greenhouse for Heirl...

Red Dawn X Suzanne pollen available

I now have Red Dawn X Suzanne pollen available. This is the old Simonet hybrid that contributed to many cold hardy hybrid lines. http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.46261&tab=1

Re: Here is another one I need help with

It shows enough stipule to make me quite certain that is R. multiflora. I have some nearly thornless seed grown plants of it that have very little fringing in the stipules. The Cercospora supports that ID!

Re: 54-08-09

Anyway, where did you get the idea that I wanted to steal your germplasm of a plant you bred (if I understand you) I asked for L83. That is not 54 08 08. I fixed the whitespace if that caused the misunderstanding. I understand how you made an error in formatting the message about L83, and your revi...

Re: 54-08-09

54-08-09 is now extinct, just so you know. One of the plants from this cross still exists, but its the least interesting flower of the lot.

Re: Rugosas - Why the lack of breeding activity?

Well all things considered, I think it best to breed rugosas with 42-03-02 which Paul Barden did with some success, and from there outcross. Then I will do the fun stuff, like color form thornlessness cresting ect. Barden do you still have your cross w/ rugosa magnifica and 42-03-02? Nope, those al...

Yes, Rob - anything with enough R. chinensis genes in it to enable the modern rebloom habit.
