For Love of Roses offers naming rights from time to time, starting at $2,500. https://forloveofroses.com/shop/seedlings/seedling/ Jackson and Perkins offered naming rights in 2005 for $75,000. https://www....

Re: Show and Tell?

Is the last one also thornless? (Dunno why, but I would have expected leaflets a tad more lanceolate. The roundness of Wich came through, while none of the glossiness did, it appears.) It is not thornless, just young. And you are correct, typically the F1 palustris hybrids have fairly lanceolate le...

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.

Very interesting idea. Any clue what concentration? And would it have to be pure CaCl2 or would a commercial salt replacement (icemelt product) work?
