Re: More Minutifolia results

Petite is the word I see in them Kim. You mention ground hugging, would that translate into "hanging basket". Well done, as Rob mentioned the orange tone one, I must agree I do like it aswell.

Re: It's "in there"!

If I may ask, Kim in all the photos that I have looked at there seems to be a "gray" to some leaves, what might this be ?

Re: 2017 germinations

Hi Jackie, it is beautiful and yellow. It will be interesting to see what sort of height it attains. Kim R. has also posted that he might have coaxed Rosa minutifolia into do something. Well done Jackie.

Re: phenotype vs. genotype

The parentage tree on HMF also tends to lean towards bigger type plants on the seed side of the family, the pollen is not disclosed. I think Teasing Georgia would make a grea...
