Re: Handling cold-hardiness

Agree completely Stefan ... seen both cases and latter too many times to count ... the former with some examples of the “ super “ hardies for the first time this year - that l chalk up to cane age as some are nearly, or over, a decade old and some 15 years. Agathas no problems in north garden, (plan...

Re: Handling cold-hardiness

Btw, did enjoy last night watching Monty Don O.B.E. bemoaning on gardeners world, with his stoic demeanour, the tree fatalities at LongMeadow in the winter of 2017-18 from snow and one night at -14C ... figs l think or prunus.

Re: Handling cold-hardiness

Might help to agree on defining hardy to a zone before one gets into arguing between 2nd and 3rd order parameter influences other than cold will kill an unprotected tea. Crown hardy or partially cane hardy does not work for me - reminds of too many disappointments - cane hardy to bloom does work mos...

Re: Handling cold-hardiness

Live in equivalent of USDA zone2-3, CDN 3-4a. In the early years planted scores of teas, hybrid musks, HP, Damasks, bourbons, portlands, HTs, gallicas centifolia austins. etc etc. Protected by covering with 42 bales of compressed peat moss each fall. Some bent down pegged and covered. Some survived ...

Re: Video tour including Metis and Bella Nitida

Well done and interesting pursuit of hardy garden worthy roses. Keep it going. l grow examples of Metis (phonetically spelled as “may-tee” and is the way l pronounce it) but find significant die back ... keep it because the buds are unusually large and deep red making it attractive as it blooms. Nit...

Re: Rebloomers genes

Txs Joe, some of the tone is “natural deep clear” yellow, but it may benefit from being in a spot where it misses the direct morning and afternoon sun (shade trees). Receives late afternoon sun. I don't plan to use the pollen or cross it this year.

Re: Ploidy of Isabella Skinner (Victorian Memory).

Peter, my IS has not. So far crosses self terminate showing yellowing of the hip “stem” and failed hip. But not stopping on trying until acquire a R. Laxa R.. Agatha another super - hardy (in my garden) has the same issue for me. Spino hardies rampant hippers.

... maybe Garret Lisi et al will solve all of it one day with further work on fixing the problems of “”An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything” .” I got lost when l assumed E8 explained everything.

Re: hardiest reblooming diploid?

Correction, RAN made it through 2 winters, including 19’s where Febs day time temperature never were not above -25C and -30C common ... enough to chase you DEEP done south to recover in an island.

Re: hardiest reblooming diploid?

Hi Stephan, Really PO'd, as it is history, pulled Ran yesterday after waiting to see if a "new growth" would emerge - unfortunately never got a full hardiness shake (made it through one winter on second). I was my own worst enemy and under-designed the first "Snowy Aussie Rabbit" fence making it too...

Re: Free Rose El Ariana - Prefer not to "compost"

The potted are no longer available - replanted all three within a shelter of Spinos - if they make
it cuttings can be arranged down the road 2-3 years. Too rare here to chance losing this known occurrence of this Geschwind by the risk of late planting if no takers by fall.

Stephan glad you mentioned it, still grow the “Pickering Minette relabelled Banshee” ... note made me check its health after a winter where even very hardy roses have been crawling to leaf out up cane - making the pruning clippers and chippers over heat when lose patience. It put out a nice new basa...

Why l like this, “crown hardy shrub landscape” Geschwind rose version in my zone 3-4a ... my other Geschwind struggle ... this one a fighter ... because the three potted own root split candelabra (3 to 4 inches of cane) have now put out from 2 to 5 new strong growth points per pot.
