Producing nice hybrids may be a bonus, but if the hybrids are difficult to use in creating the next generation, what is the point, the breeding line finishes.

Hybrid Davidii :- (Wendy X Altissimo) X R.davidii, it produces large amounts of hips, every flower will produce a hip.

Kathleen X Pauls Himalayan Musk Rambler Type 1 :- Produces huge amounts of hips again every flower produces a hip.

Q9 R108 :- Kathleen X Pauls Himalayan Musk Rambler Type 1 X High Roller. Again every bloom produces a hip as with its offspring.

Those pendulous trusses of hips are quite showy in their own right. Don't know if it's the lighting/photography, but the color on the fruit of the Sympathie x virginiana hybrids is quite flashy too.

Hi Phil
that is the colour of the sym x Virg, but then again most of the Hybrids with R.virg have great hips.

Cheers Warren

Just wanted to ditto the comment about the very decorative fruit on the above pictured hybrids. Very nice decorative floral material in the autumn as well as seed material.

That's an interesting Warren! Would you think it depends on the mother (class e.g. gallica, tea, ...) of the hybrids as well or don't you see a trend there?

Hi Dane
Both parents contribute, some more than others. The Davidii hybrid hip numbers comes from the Wendy X Altissimo. The others are influenced by both parents.
