Re: Persian Yellow

I am hoping that my Persian Yellow blooms next year as I am very interested in trying my hand with it. I would also like to find a plant of the single version (Austrian Yellow) to see if it might be easier to work with too. I also purchased Lawrence Johnston (Souv. de Madame Eugene Verdier X Persian...

Re: Need Help on the I.D. of this Buck Rose

Quietness is a possibility. I also would take a closer look at Chorale and Hawkeye Belle - if you can locate a plant of these three near you to compare your plant too that would be your best bet. I would not exactly base my entire decision on what I see on hmf just because resolutions, computer moni...

Re: Looking for OP seeds/hips from White Dawn

Rob,

I can see if I have any left on the bush and put them in the package with he rest of the OPs I will be sending. There probably aren't many though since the plant prefers to sprawl on the ground and the critters around here love these easy to reach hips.

Re: The 2014 Crosses are ALMOST fully harvested

An inspiring list. I can't wait to see what comes out of them. I can't grow r. banksiae here but I like all the crosses you are doing with it. I had to reign myself in this year as well - I failed.

Re: Finally ready for winter

I'm still trying to get everything under wraps here. We had a very light dusting of snow and it is getting cold at night (below 20 degrees F) so I am working as fast as I can to get everything under a layer of leaves. I really wish I could afford those blankets right now because piling leaves on a d...

Re: New information on the $4.6 million rose rosette researc

Glad to see more work being done on this. I had one plant (Penny Lane) come down with this about 7 years ago and have never seen it on any of my plants after that. I must have had a wind come though my yard full of the mites that carry the virus because I am up to 7 plants this year - a few cannot b...

Re: Need advice on what roses to grow in Syracuse NY

For nurseries, I would add Chamblee's and High Country to the list. Never had issues with them. Chamblee's roses are quite large for the price you pay. If I remember correctly shipping was about $25-30 for around 12 1 gallon sized plants - not too terrible compared to others. I think it calculated t...

Re: OP Hips Request and Being Offered

Thanks Kim and Joe. I can't wait to try those seeds out once they arrive. Joe, Tetonkaha and Yatkan should be well suited for here in Iowa so I am hoping that their seedlings produce something healthy and hardy - I'm sure hardiness will be in the bag. I am actually surprised you have OP hips from Su...

OP Hips Request

I was wondering if anyone has any extra OP hips of the following rose varieties. Some of these are a little obscure and I am not sure if all of these produce hips. I would like to do some germination tests on these before I commit giving them the space that many of them require. I can also share som...

Good to hear they will/might set hips too since I want to carry forward the good health these seedlings are showing. Thanks so much for sharing t...

Re: How do I renovate containerized breeders?

Treat them like any containerized plant and repot them. For those who haven't done it before (or curious as to what I do) I do the following: Every few years (mine are on a 3 year rotation so I do 1/3 of my potted plants a year) repot them either using a bigger container or the same container either...

Re: 'Ann Endt'

I have also been on the lookout for this one. I did get some pollen a few years ago that I used on a few bucks - surprisingly (to me) the two seedlings I still have were white! Please let us know if you find a commercial source.

Re: What is Going on with This Seedling?

Looks like one of my Adelaide Hoodless X Cineraire seedlings - it takes a very long time for some of these tiny roses to get the energy (I believe) to bloom the first time and once they bloom they won't stop. Other tiny ones bloom within a few weeks of germination. It seems like it is a crap shoot w...

Re: Have you ever seen this?

I wouldn't do anything special with these. I have a few mother plant varieties that do this all the time. A few others are half way in between forming half a hip and having some on the outside. I did an experiment this year with Margaret Chase Smith OP seeds (MCS produces half hips) from last year w...

Jackie, Last year you sent me three or four of your R. foliolosa X Henry Hudson seedlings and I can confirm that one of them has this appearance too. So I think we can rule out herbicide damage (none used anywhere near me). I was thinking it was either malnutrition or RRD so I pruned the "bad" spots...

Prairie Lass X Enne Endt Surprise Bloom Color

I have two seedlings of Prairie Lass X Anne Endt. I may be wrong, but there is little doubt in my mind that these are Anne Endt seedlings because the label was quite clear and my records do not show any other pollen that was close to producing white used on PL that year. Both seedlings produce bloom...

Re: Mercedes Gallart?

Kim,
I think of it as the trade off. From what I understand, you don't have the blackspot problem anywhere near what we have and so Mother nature decided you must have rust (and drought... and hotter than hades temperatures... oh and don't forget the sharknados)
