Re: Non-fading suggestions

I like 'Ty' for a nice, strong yellow. It's also a very clean plant here. Although, it can be a little difficult to work with and the petals persist on the plant well after the bloom is spent. 'Ty': https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.39066.1&tab=1 I've never worked with it, but 'Screaming Neo...

Re: most anticipated cross?

Not to jinx myself, but I'm pretty excited about:

R. palustris x 'Pretty Lady' (SCRivo)
R. palustris x 'Hazeldean'
R. palustris x 'Sunny Knock Out'

Hopefully they'll sprout soon.

Re: Dipping [cut] roses in calcium before shipping

Very interesting idea. Any clue what concentration? And would it have to be pure CaCl2 or would a commercial salt replacement (icemelt product) work? Will this work be published perhaps in a hort jnl? I'm not sure when the paper will be published. Here's an earlier work from the same group where th...

Re: Rooting Cuttings from Seedlings

I'm not entirely certain that my seedling was suffering from damping off, that was just my best guess.

Re: Rose Genome and the Possibility of (almost) Inseparable Traits

What you're referring to is called "linkage". The closer two genes are on a chromosome, the less likely it is that they will be separated by recombination. "Linkage Drag" occurs when a lot of unwanted genes are passed on to progeny due to their close proximity to a desirable gene.
