Re: The Future Development of Canadian Roses

Hi, A very interesting discussion. It also arised a question in my mind, what are the rootstocks used in Canada? I know in Europe it's mostly some sort of canina, but which rootstock is used in Canada or are most roses grown on their own roots? Also, I believe there is a lot of possiblities in spino...

Re: 'Canadian Shield' rose

Is this rose available in Europe as well? Would love to have one! Visted Canada last year, made some great friends overthere!

ploidy of Highdownensis

Does anyone know the ploidy of R. moyesii 'Highdownensis'? Help me find says it is pentaploid. But could it be hexaploid? And also, if it is pentaploid or hexaploid, what is the ploidy of the pollen. Has anyone actually tried to find this out? I mean, not theoretically but in practice. If anyone alr...

Try to cross it with "Rosa rouletii Correvon". If I am not mistaken, all roses that have been crossed with this one are repeat blooming ;-)

Re: New Roses in Crosses This Year

Hi Jim! Very curious about Desdemona! I have been in doubt but did not buy the rose. Let us know if she is a good pollen or seed plant! Planning to work with 'Paula Vapelle' and 'Karl Förster' (among others), and if my rose 'Duchesse De Montebello' wants to flower this year (it refused last year), I...

Hey Rob,

interesting! If it would be a repeat bloomer, let us know! I doubt it, but you never now :-)

Re: R. moyesii 'Highdownensis'

But then again, how is it possible that a cell can perform the mitosis but not a meiosis?

Re: R. moyesii 'Highdownensis'

Hey Karl, Parsons' Pink China is a diploid with 14 chromosomes in the body-cells and 7 in both the male and female germ-cells. Although a diploid, its chromosomes are not regular in their behaviour and weak pairings in the germ-cell divisions lead to defective pollen and embryo-sacs and consequent s...

Re: R. moyesii 'Highdownensis'

Karl, thanks for the extra information! Don, one might call the septets a distraction, but would you say that is entirely wrong? Rosa Rugosa (diploid) is clearly totally different than rosa Arvensis (also diploid), and I believe, when one would compare the chromosones in offsprings of them, what wou...

Re: R. moyesii 'Highdownensis'

Keep in mind that Hurst's genetic concepts are archaic relative to the state of the art and that that Earlinson disproved his septet hypothesis eighty years ago. Hey Don, Appearantly, the idea of septepts was revived. In 2011 the paper "Application of the Septet Classification System on Rose Cultiv...

Re: R. moyesii 'Highdownensis'

Hi Don, I did not know that Hurst was disproved. :-( But still... there might be some truth in his ideas? Do you know this article already? One interesting insight is that "Bivalent formation appears to involve chromosomes that consistently share the same microsatellite alleles." Nybom et al. (2006)...

Re: R. moyesii 'Highdownensis'

The distinctive Caninae Meiosis is not a simple matter of chromosome number. It requires a suppression of chromosome pairing that is presumably under genetic control. For a Caninae pentaploid, this means two sets of chromosome pair normally, while the other three sets (21 chromosomes) remain unpair...

Re: R. moyesii 'Highdownensis'

Thanks Karl for the references! I'll check them out later if I can find the time. :-) I still don't quite entirely understand the Canina meiosis but I found a text in Dutch that has a chapter about propagation so I'm gonna study that one first. for those who understand Dutch: http://www.ecologischad...
