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...

more pics for i.d.

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...

Karl:Thanks for the input! I also find these things fascinating, even though I don't understand much about them. I would love to see where it goes. I was looking at the plant and found a new branch coming out of the bottom node. All of the first leaves (I think 3) are as pictured. But there is anoth...

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...

Re: help with i,d.?

It blooms repeatedly. Flowers can be individual or clusters of three or four. Now a week and a half to moving day and the cold weather continues unabated. Since it was cold before snow covered the ground, it is frozen like concrete. Lots of pictures look like it, just not exactly it. Too many double...

Re: help with i,d.?

Thanks for the input guys. I haven't seen anything that looks exactly like it. It doesn't help that blooms can vary so much, even its blooms changed a bit throughout the season. And, yes, pink, double and pom pom don't narrow things down much. Would it be considered rose rustling if you return to di...

anyone have any ideas of how to get a rose out of frozen ground... getting down through the snow won't be fun but is easily do able. Anything short of dynamite?

Re: help with i,d.?

About three inches. (2 3/4 to 3 1/4) I've been straining my brain to remember the fragrance Old Rose? Tea? I remember it was fairly strong. No distinctive accents to the fragrance, pure rose I think? No fruit or spices, not myrrh. This was the first time I tried it as a seed parent, as it had set no...
