Re: When to expect Rugelda F1 first blooms

That brings up a question I have had in mind: Will only the ones that bloom the first year be repeat bloomers? I know that in Rugosas even those that are not juvenile bloomers could be repeat bloomers, although not necessarily. Also, does that go for other cold hardy plants, like Candadian roses? If...

Re: I'm confused: a diploid?

Thanks Karl! That is very interesting, esp. as I have a few Spin hybrids of my own. Although how far away do we get and still consider it a hybrid of a Spin.? I know there was discussion about that with Rugosas. Interesting it could be a tretaploid instead of a triploid if smaller size was not taken...

Re: When to expect Rugelda F1 first blooms

Thanks Rob: not encouraging to hear about blackspot with Rugelda. I was using it to try to add vigor and health. I had wanted cold hardiness, since it was a Rugosa, before I knew it wasn't that hardy. (THinking about Agnes, if I want to work hard with one.) This was a cross Rugelda as seed parent wi...

Re: When to expect Rugelda F1 first blooms

Wondering what results were for juvenile bloom for Rugelda and Ann Endt. Any results??? I used Rugelda as seed parent. 27 seeds germinated. 2 plants had juvenile bloom. One of those died right after blooming. The other I still have. Waiting to see its second season. It bloomed two or three times fir...

Re: I'm confused: a diploid?

I should add that I have seeds germinated from other Rugosas I got hips from over the summer. A blush, maybe snow owl? Frau Dagmar Harstrup, Jens Munk, and Will Alderman. Looking for any with juvenile remontancy. I have two seedlings with juvenile remontancy already, one from Therese Bugnet and one ...

Re: I'm confused: a diploid?

I had wondered how such a cold hardy plant would come from that cross. I started trying to cross Rugosas with English roses. Other than Rugosas the only cold hardy plants I had were Party Hardy (which set no hips & not sure of pollen yet, as I made a cold hardy mix of pollens) and William Baffin. Si...

Re: I'm confused: a diploid?

Thanks for the input! There are a lot of things I will end up trying: I was just wondering if there were some that would be more likely to be compatible, as I would start with these first. I don't mind a long shot or even repeatedly trying to get the desired result, but for right now the more likely...

I'm confused: a diploid?

Questions about Wasagaming: Reading on HMF I looked at the parentage and was hoping someone could explain for me (it would have to be at a kindergarten level) Why Wasagaming ended up as a diploid. Rosa Rug. Thum. diploid (so that makes sense) x Acicularis hexaploid, octoploid, or tetraploid (any of ...

Re: Germinating seeds

color of rosehips vary at ripe stage, experience with a variety helps in this. I have seeds germinate in the fridge while in cold storage. However, germination seems to increase when moved to a warmer temp. (50s and 60s). Perhaps some even require the warmer? Others could probably give you accurate ...

tracking seed germination

What kind of information do you keep track of in your records? What details about germination do you keep track of? I just realized (and, yes, I'm a little slow in this) that if the male is responsible for length till germination (as someone was kind enough to share on here recently) Karl?, then per...

Re: Is every rose seed completely unique?

Each seed is unique, or carries a unique combination of the genetic possibilities. However, certain traits may be more common, simply varying the combination. For instance, some families have a passel of kids that look a lot alike. Some siblings may not resemble each other as much. I have read sever...

Re: What is the easiest and hardest steps in rose breeding?

Perhaps it is my morbid sense of humor, but Joe, you cracked me up! (Wishing I could add smiling emoji here) Cutting seedling is definitely hard! Even harder (for me) and what I am working on is learning which seedlings to keep and which to let go. Not just based upon their performance, but based up...

Re: Moss smell

Each of the ones I have smelled (only a few) have had the smell that is kind of like Pine. I like it, but they left some stickiness on my fingers.

Re: Rushing Stream

I'm interested to see what characteristics you get from the O.P seedlings to see what it tends to pass on. How has Rushing Stream performed in your location? Any idea how much Spin genes would be in it? Are you crossing it with Spin again to reinforce what is already in it? I was trying Spin genes o...
