Re: Yellow blend rugosa hybrid

How pretty! If it proves fertile, what are your thoughts for how you plan to use it? Seems like a lot of possibilities.

Re: Alternate source for repeat bloom

Plazbo, thanks for the input. David, thanks for the new info and for your thoughts. As I reread it today it brought an answer, sort of, to something I was wondering about, how we get at least some plants that repeat bloom when crossing Rugosa with China, although not most? Also, there is the delayed...

Re: Variegated Leaves

I have noticed this same peculiarity In one of my seedlings this year, now in it's second year. Oddly, I don't remember seeing any leaves like that last season (it's first), but there are several on it right now. Would it be more likely to be a virus or genetic if it doesn't show up the first year b...

Re: Alternate source for repeat bloom

Philip. I should have mentioned that I am pursuing the normal route. I am looking to use roses from Radler and Kordes to try to bring in disease resistance. I am also going to try back crossing to some of the healthier Old Roses I can find. Hopefully this will give me several breeding lines that I w...

Re: Alternate source for repeat bloom

Johannes thanks. I will look up both snow dwarf and it's ancestry. Great to learn about all possibilities. Jwindha thank you for the link. Also for the overview of the information. Gives me the general idea while I work to comprehend the whole. But that (overview) brought a question to mind: If Rugo...

Re: Alternate source for repeat bloom

It has been mentioned that Rugosa health breaks down when combined with China genes, so I was wondering if there was another route to gain more repeat, but without the added health issues, specifically with Wasagaming. I know some have worked with Rugosas, others have worked with Damasks, still othe...

Alternate source for repeat bloom

I was wondering what approaches to repeat people are trying other than China genes? I am considering crosses with Wasagaming. I was thinking, given Rugosa and Bourbon there are repeat genes there. Which this plant repeated a bit last year. Then I read the parentage is probably wrong. I got some poll...

Re: Needing some direction

I second the condolences. If the several thousand dollars is an issue, I have another thought. Please understand I am not meaning to say you should get a second rate or mediocre rose as a tribute. There are a lot of people (often friends and family members of breeders) who are growing roses that hav...

Re: I'm confused: a diploid?

let me know how things go for you. It will be interesting to compare notes at each generation. I have seedlings up from three different rugosa hybrids right now, we'll see if I get any that bloom this season.

Re: Help identifying this rose

One thought is that if you know which shop it was, you could contact them directly. Especially with a photo, they may be able to check their records to see what was available at that time.

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...
