Re: Breeding plans for 2018

I have taken a few years off of breeding too and am planning on resuming my crosses this year. I plan on using the following roses, which I consider my best Breeders at the moment, as many times as I can and in many different ways: Top 5 Seed Parents: Pink Princess (good pollen parent as well) Caref...

Re: Update on the Rosa virginiana hybrids lines

Stunning foliage on these seedlings! The blooms are beautiful, especially on a few of them, but I would grow them even if they didn't bloom just because most look like they have such beautiful foliage. I particularly like the pictures of H3 G40 double, K1 L38, O3 P72, O4 P26, O5 P82, F2 O22 P56, Q7 ...

Re: For those who like singles

I finally got around to taking a few more pictures of a single seedling from 2012 that I think is has good potential. I previously only had two pictures of the bloom that were taken when it first bloomed inside the house. The colors are a lot more clear now that it is outside and more mature. http:/...

Re: Can you ID this Brownell rose?

Too funny Rob. And as I suspected too. Years ago I ordered a Curly Pink from that company and also received an Orange Ruffels instead. At that time I didn't realize that it was orange Ruffels and assumed that it was Curly Pink and that my climate was affecting the color. Years later I ordered Orange...

Re: Can you ID this Brownell rose?

Definitely Orange Ruffels. If I may ask, where did you order it from? I have been looking all over for it since I lost my plant due to a move last year.

Re: Unusual Petal Shape

Disease for Night owl and its seedlings are average here - basically they start out nicely with gorgeous colors and break down with black spot later on in the season. I use it because Night Owl is such a great hip setter with excellent germination. The hips are small but fully packed with seeds. I w...

Re: Unusual Petal Shape

I had a few Night Owl Seedlings do the same thing. I still have one that continues to produce ruffled petals four years later (the others outgrew it) which I'll have to check to see if it does it again this year. Every single seedling that did it was open pollinated which makes me suspect it could b...

Re: Seeds going into Stratification for 2013.

I don't know if I ever have tried that cross but I do see a lot of potential with that one. Curly Pink could add a lot more petals, Lafter should produce interesting colors and vigorous growth, and both should add some very good disease resistance. I say go for it with Lafter as seed parent Curly Pi...

Re: Resistance to rose rosette virus

I had a cloud of infected mites drift through my garden last year (2014). They caused about 25% of the stock to show signs of the disease by the end of summer 2014. Stormy Weather was grown by one severely infected plant of another variety and still does not display any infection. I don't know if gr...

Warren,

Thank you for your contributions to this forum. I will miss all the pictures, responses and rose updates you have posted. I wish you luck in getting your roses onto the market and look forward to one day having the opportunity of growing a few myself.

Re: Is this rust?

How dry does the plant and pot get? I had similar things happen to a lot of my potted plants after my move this year and late last fall. It was mainly because I neglected to keep them watered during some really dry parts of the year. While many of the plants seemed to shed their leaves, the ones tha...

Re: Hybrid Tea suggestions

My 2 cents: If you are looking for good hip producers, I highly recommend Crimson Glory, Dame de Coeur, Love, Pope John Paul II, Senior Prom, Stephen's Big Purple, The 777 Rose (if you can get it), and Winter Sun. These are my highest hip setters by far (I'd also throw in Pink Princess but I'm not s...

Re: New seedling pix

A lot of my Ebb Tide OP seedlings produce proliferation. Some are quite beautiful with an emerald green center and dark purple petals surrounding the green. If I ever get around to it I'll have to look for pictures to share with everyone.

Re: First Blooms for 2015

Very nice cross! Good to see that after all that wait you have the blotch (assuming that was one of the features you were trying to capture). Hopefully you'll have success using this one as a parent.

Re: A really nice stiriped rose

I think it is in reference to Chihuly's propensity to sometimes be striped but mostly be not striped. For me it is usually striped in the spring and only at the bud or near bud stage. Then the stripes fades away. Without looking it up, I think the stripe comes from Scentimental which always retains ...

Depending on what shade you are looking for, I have had good luck obtaining mauves from the following varieties that I have tried so far: Blueberry Hill, Route 66, Stephen's big Purple, Blue Girl, Lady X, Ebb tide, Night Owl, Blue Moon, and Crystalline. Healthy seedlings are another question for the...

Re: 2015 Autumn germinations.

Warren, Have you done any crosses between two of your F1 virginiana hybrids? Something like 15H 40G X 3H 40G. I wonder how effective F1 crosses would be in stabilizing the virginiana characteristics (especially the foliage) if you keep the percentage of virginiana blood high - and then watch them th...

Re: Making the Two-Year In-the-Ground Cut

Oh wow! If you happen to collect some pollen off of it please let me know if you will be able to send some out. I think I may have a few cold hardy varieties that I might want to try that one on. That is some of the best foliage I have seen. Congrats!
