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...

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...
