Re: 'Banshee' for hybridizing...

Here's 'Climbing American Beauty' x 'Banshee' (2018 cross, 2019 seedling). The goal was fragrance, as both parents are very fragrant. Should be pink, once-blooming, multiple petals.

Re: hardiest reblooming diploid?

I just looked at the HMF entry for 'Banshee', and didn't find any published reference for the ploidy determination, only a name--does anyone know the individual from Texas A&M who performed it, or the provenance of the plant that was tested? It concerns me that there isn't better documentation, bec...

Re: Roses with relatively better Japanese beetle tolerance

My observations for the past few years have been that my pink roses are devoured by beetles far more frequently than my yellow roses. In particular, they are very fond of Rosa palustris . So much so that at the height of the beetle season, I use a wide, shallow container of soapy water to knock them...

Re: For Love of Roses

That's unfortunate to hear. I've been waiting for a reply from them about 'Dashiell Codd'. Does anyone know of another nursery that carries it?

Re: Rosa palustris sport

Interesting! Good catch! Thanks Kim! It's my understanding that multiple petals is a dominant trait, so I saved what little pollen there was to use on palustris this season to hopefully generate a few "pure" palustris plants with doubled flowers. "A dominant gene located on LG32 controls single ver...

Rosa palustris sport

This one blossom showed up late last season on Rosa palustris. 14 petals instead of 5, no receptacle, an unusually long stem, and a strange cleft in the stigma pad. Ragged form, but exciting potential!

Re: Naming new rose cultivars

Cultivar names play a role in the sale of a rose, therefore, names are treated as commodities. 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...
