Agnes as parent?

I saw that Peter Harris managed a baby from pollen out of Agnes. Has anyone had success with Agnes as seed parent? I found a handful of hips on her and was wondering if anyone has had success germinating them, or if I would be wasting time. Thanks! Also this made me wonder about heat and rugosa hybr...

help identifying (another pic)

Here is another pic of the patch. Amazing it can grow with all the competition. I'm looking for cold hardy and fragrant. But it is double to boot, and apparently extremely tough. Thought on breeding with it???

help identify found rose ???

I spotted a rose growing in an old vacant lot, if it ever was a lot. It is still growing up, fighting the grass and weeds. At first sight from the road I was expecting a Gallica, as I saw short branches sticking straight up with pink buds on top. But as I came closer I spotted a few longer branches ...

Re: the show’s featured afternoon speaker will be renowned rose hybridizer Ping Lim.

Got to hear him speak. What a great overview of his breeding program, especially on his next step, working to improve on previous work. Certainly gained a lot of information to consider!

Age of fertility

I know that some varieties need to mature in order to set viable seed, varying per variety, but what about pollen? How young does a bush produce pollen that is productive, provided it is going to? I am anxious to test some of the seedlings I have, more useful for carrying forward than for themselves...

Juvenile bloom in cold Hardy varieties

I have a seedling from Therese Bugnet that is developing a bud at about 10 weeks old. It is about three inches tall, and is starting to branch out below the bud already. Is it unusual.to bloom this early? I thought I had read that some rugosa hybrids may bloom but late in the first season. Is that c...

Re: can you identify this rose? Species??

white and fragrant both sound positive. Inavasive weed not so much! Any benefit in using this in breeding?

Re: more pics for i.d.

I found both roses growing along the river, having spread all over. In between the different varieties was another that looked intermediate. Could they have crossed naturally? Which caused me to wonder if canina would be useful in breeding, perhaps for less thorns or hardiness? It is tip hardy here....

Re: more pics for i.d.

That may be the case here. I'll be watching when they come into bloom, but for now is there something I should look for that would identify them as R. canina? If it is Canina, would I be able to use it for grafting a rose onto? I wanted to try grafting a rose for fun, also to get a backup in case ro...

Re: more pics for i.d.

It is possible it is a rootstock left from where the rose grafted to it died. I am used to seeing Dr. Huey all over the place due to that. I am not familiar with R. canina as a rootstock, so I'll have to look into it. I'll look on the other bush down the street for clusters of hips. When it blooms i...

adding two more photos, sorry the thorns are blurry, I couldn't get the camera to focus on them: look at the ones further behind and to the right. The hips are somewhat long (conical) especially on the more mature bush. By the way this is about an hour north of Spokane, WA. Canes are green to the ti...

can you identify this rose? Species??

At the corner of the new property is this rose bush. This must be a young bush, as down the street there is another that looks the same but throws out canes up to ten feet high. It appears thornless at first, but then maybe a third of the canes have some thorns. I will attach photos of bush, canes, ...

Re: First germination of the winter

Rob, Good luck with those seedlings! I looked at the parentage of the first and was ready to say how interesting it is when I clicked on the second one: both look like interesting possibilities! I look forward to seeing how they turn out.

Re: genetic incompatability? What do you think?

I have been looking at the parents and trying to figure out the pollen parent. Willimam Baffin is listed on HMF as tetraploid. I was assuming Lady of Shallot is also, if not triploid. Is this usually caused by diploid x tetraploid issues? I was assuming Martin Frobisher is diploid, although it isn't...

genetic incompatability? What do you think?

You can see the odd leaves in the picture... I figured it was a genetic issue, but it kept living. It has now bloomed and the petals on the lower half seem messed up. Would this be a genetic issue? Could it improve with age? (I have one other with leaves like that Hansa x english rose) Mother is Pri...
