Re: Question about experience with Above and Beyond and Rambling Red

Rambling Red didn't set seed with any of the crosses I made (it may need to get established better). Fortunately I reversed the crosses, so we'll see if anything results from those.
Your Metis crosses sound great!
Thanks for the input;

Re: Question about experience with Above and Beyond and Rambling Red

Interesting to see if you get repeat from Metis seedlings, certainly seems possible. I have seeds from Above and Beyond from modern pollen, and I reversed the cross, so I have other seeds also, if they germinate better. I'm not sure if it would make a difference which direction the cross was made. T...

Re: Golden Gate by Kordes

Sounds like a great cross with Above and Beyond! Let me know if you get any more germinations from those seeds if you give it a go again. I'm finding some of Kordes bushes I have set hips but don't want to germinate. So I'm still looking to try different ones.

Question about experience with Above and Beyond and Rambling Red

I was wondering about remontanccy and juvenile bloom, what you have found with these (Above and Beyond and Rambling Red)? And is there a connection between the two. I know there isn't necessarily in Rugosa. And what about some of the Canadian Roses. Many have said they may get a small percentage of ...

Re: Newbie question

I had seeds from Golden Celebration that started to color a bit (I brought them inside for a bit, perhaps I should have kept them in hip longer) none of them were germinating. I finally performed a c section on them and managed to get six plants to grow. Same experience with Abraham Darby. Don't kno...

There is a lot of diversity there. Many of those sounds really interesting to me. Looking forward to hearing what you get from them!

Re: Any luck with Wasagaming?

Thanks for the info. I guess I may try it for seed, but will focus on pollen. Leave out campfire as a mate. I found it at a local nursery and didn't want to pass it up. Something about the thought of Bourbon rose with Rugosa and Woodsi?, Perhaps a different route than English Roses with cold Hardy o...

Any luck with Wasagaming?

Has anyone done well with this rose in breeding. I find the parentage interesting, as it accounts for the shape of the bloom, which I. Interested in. Wondering if it will help keep the form and fragrance I want while adding some cold hardiness.
Any luck recovering rebloom?
Thanks for input!

Re: All A'Twitter x Yatkan

That is a beautiful rose! How cold Hardy was it before you ported it up? It would be great to have a cold Hardy red to use in breeding. Good luck with that one.

Re: Agnes as parent?

Update... Went to process hips and found all fluff in the hips from Agnes, it was like working with Austrian Copper all over again. I did get seeds from Jen's Munk, Will Alderman and Frau Dagmar Harstrup. Processed these fine. Then got to a white (more blush) rugosa I had come acrossed. All seeds fl...

Re: Agnes as parent?

Thanks for the input. I'll give these a go, along with some other rugosa seeds I found. I didn't get as many crosses as I woul like to this year, due to moving, so this may give some more seedlings next spring.

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 ...

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...
