Black growth on rose seeds? Fungus?

I left my rose hips in plastic bags and some went quite moldy, upon extracting the seeds from these hips I came across some dark growths on the seeds. I am thinking they might be some sort of fungus or mushroom? I cut it open and did not see any signs of insects, but I could be wrong. Sometimes thes...

Re: Anyone breeding for fall color?

Duane, I find Michel Trudeau a unique rugosa, its leaves are more pointed and matte than other rugosas. The fragrance is strong and clove-like, similar to Therese Bugnet. My understanding is that it was a seedling discovered growing in a garden, which is why there is no lineage. I have some open pol...

Re: Anyone breeding for fall color?

I like rugosa Michel Trudeau for fall colour: https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.43080.3&tab=36 If I remember correctly, rosa Glauca also goes vivid red for me in the fall. It was hard to observe this year as we had a sudden cold before leaves could change colour. My soil is rather alkaline, ...

Re: Wasagaming and Snow Pavement as seed parents

Three juvenile bloomers in the Snow Pavement seedlings, but none on the Wasagaming seedlings. Of these three bloomers, two have rugose foliage, and one has smoother leaves. The first blooms were a bit distorted, so I shall hold onto them until next year and see how they do. Overall it’s become a cro...

Re: repeat bloom in Wasagaming???

Wasagaming blooms in one main flush for me, which lasts for about 3-4 weeks. I do not get repeat bloom, however my season is very short.

Re: Grid for pollen measurement

Thanks Joe for the suggestion for this pocket microscope. Got mine in the mail today. Really neat. Here’s some just picked Snow Pavement diploid pollen. Getting the cellphone to take a decent photo was a challenge. It’s more clear/focused to the eye.

Re: Wasagaming and Snow Pavement as seed parents

self incompatibility is a continuum in terms of degree of expression and recognizing the factors that impact expression. In roses, the pollen from "incompatible" pollen germinates, but then grows much more slowly down the style and often gets stuck due to protein interactions/recognition. When ther...

Re: Wasagaming and Snow Pavement as seed parents

Thank you Johannes. I'm still trying to figure out how to do things. And often get confused about many terms used & need to use a search engine to understand. Donald, interesting cross, it would be interesting to hear how the seedlings turn out for you. It's good to hear Wasagaming will even accept ...

Wasagaming and Snow Pavement as seed parents

Update on some crosses I made in 2017. These were planted in the ground in July 2018 last year & all had developed powdery mildew in the fall. They were heavily mulched with straw, temperatures dipping down to the -30s C during February. I am curious if they will get powdery mildew again this fall, ...

Re: Kind of starting new

Joe, have you worked with Doorenbos Selection? It sounds like it might meet some of your criteria, except for shrubbiness and bloom form. I’m thinking of adding it one day, the comments about it on this forum sound promising.

Re: Is sterility sometimes a physical problem, and not genetic?

We’ve grown giant pumpkins in the past where adequate calcium & sufficient plant size was crucial to have fruit set.

I’ve also observed the same with bees preferring the flowers which are easier to access.

Re: Is sterility sometimes a physical problem, and not genetic?

I observed the opposite with 'Wasagaming', the stigmas did not appear ready until the flower started to fade & when they did look right, the window was short. Length of the stigmas were also short/held close to the flower. Repeated pollinations over several days seemed to help, as well as finding po...

Re: Wild Edric

Mntlover - Wasagaming is fertile for me as a seed parent, although picky. Example - one year out of 77 crosses, 37 formed hips. Some crosses took sporadically (Therese Bugnet, Marie Bugnet), however spinosissima pollen was usually 100% successful (Prairie Peace, Suzanne). It does not repeat, but put...

Re: Beginner Question, How to Streamline Germination & Planting?

Update, after about 5 months of stratification, I finally sowed the seeds about two weeks ago. Good thing I checked as some were sprouting in the peat baggies. I decided to spread the seeds out into 4' pots filled with a mix of 2/3 Pro-Mix BX and 1/3 coarse sand. The peat worked well as it was easy ...

Beginner Question, How to Streamline Germination & Planting?

Due to some health problems, I am far behind on stratification. I kept hips in the fridge, and finally had time/energy to remove the seeds from hips at the end of December. These were mostly rugosa/Arkansana/Spinosissima crosses, seed parents being 'Snow Pavement', 'Wasagaming', 'Winnipeg Parks' and...

Re: What causes this

I second wet soil media. I had something similar happen to a rugosa 'Snow Pavement' potted in peat-based Pro-Mix HP, photos attached. Damage in leaves was very sudden & upon removing from the pot I noticed the mix was wet and compressed at the bottom and some roots had died. Issue was solved once wa...
