Very nice, Warren! Beautiful foliage. I find myself drawn to the single pink in the first set, and really like the Kordesii davidii as well. I gather it won't be recurrent, however? (In my climate, non-repeaters are often viewed as a waste of a ridiculously long growing season! ;-) )

Tom,

I wanted to let you know that I used your rugosa x xanthina as the pollen parent and Lemon Splash as the female parent and got some seeds. They are stratifying now and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get germination.

Do we know if R. davidii is a tetraploid or diploid?

My R. davidii survived its second winter to the tips here in Zone 3 Minnesota. It is suckering profusely, with thin greenish canes and not too many thorns. If it blooms this year I may have to try some pollen.

Joe,

It's great to learn that R. davidii is hardy to zone 3. I'll have to give this species a look.

Joe,

Do you have R. davidii or R. davidii elongata?

The Wendy x Altissimo crosses are lovely, but this kordesii x davidii (worth the 3 yr wait and then some) is beyond lovely. Simply gorgeous. I have had one Rosa foliolosa X Henry Hudson seedling bloom with a beautifully double, tons of bloom, (but pink) but it has been a very reticent bloomer since. Will need to get some wichuriana genetics in there. Does the red come from the davidii ? And is this a new bloom this past spring season or has it bloomed since that photo?

Hi Jr
Thank you for your comment. The red from the double comes from Kordes (Sympathie)

Hi Dane
From germination they grew 300cm (10ft) in their first year, I cut the tops out to keep them at a manageable height. If I had not pruned them down the height would have exceeded 500cm (15ft+).

cheers Warren
