Well, I have a Rose Gilardi that is in full bloom at the moment. I could let it go to hips and send those. Would that work? It will probably be a couple of months before the hips are ready to harvest. And, but for someone wanting the hips, I would normally have deadheaded it in a week or two, so for me your timing was just about perfect. Here's the plant, now: (hmmm, RHA will not let me post a picture from Picasa because Picasa uses the prefix https, instead of http, so here's link to my Picasa album instead. You have to click on the pic to make it bigger).

I'm unable to view your picture here at work as it is blocked but will take a peek when I get home tonight. If you have some hips available in a couple months I'd love to take them off your hands. Thank you for the offer.

Great picture Kathy!

I agree with you Michael. It's a great rose. I need to purchase another one to use in breeding.

I didn't know, so I searched my email for the answer as to when I got this rose.

Found this order from Uncommon Rose in June 2007, which has to have been my last order from them:

1 Charlie Brown (Miniature) @ $6.50 ea

1 Green Diamonds (Miniature) @ $6.50 ea

1 Green Ice (Miniature) @ $6.50 ea

1 Rose Gilardi (Miniature Moss) @ $6.50 ea

1 Smoky (Hybrid Tea) @ $12.95 ea

1 Strawberry Swirl (Miniature) @ $6.50 ea

1 Swedish Doll (Miniature) @ $6.50 ea

1 Twister (Miniature) @ $6.50 ea



Was a great order -- they're all still here with the exception of Smokey which I haven't been able to keep alive here (have tried it several times).

I miss them alot!

Ya gotta love a rose that thinks it should still bloom even when the plant is covered with hips.

Kathy,

Great pictures and great detail. I like the middle picture above showing the close-up of the ripe hip. Awesome look at that hooked thorn right on the hip. I guess you have to be careful when harvesting these hips. I usually hate wearing garden gloves but if I were harvesting these hips, I think I might reconsider.

Would this be considered "mossing" or just thorny? Do the rodents stay away from these type of hips?

There are two (or more) kinds of so-called "mossing," which I've seen referred to as "hard" and "soft" mossing. This is definitely the hardest of the hard mossing. And yes, it does resemble extreme thorniness. Gloves are a requirement.
