Index to ARS Articles on Rose Breeding

The index was originally compiled and typewritten by Jack D. Lissemore in 1973. It was scanned and converted to an RTF document by Peter Harris, and converted from RTF to HTML by Jim Turner. Mary Peterson compiled the entries for the American Rose Annuals 1973-2000 and Royal National Rose Society Annuals 1978-1979.


This index was compiled from all the American Rose Society publications since 1916 mainly for the interest of the amateur rose breeder. The articles listed contain all kinds of information relative to the cross-breeding of roses, such as the mechanics of hand pollination, seed germination, chromosome count, cold hardiness, etc., as well as the background of modern roses and who made them. Various amateurs describe their methods of working and some of the famous breeders tell how they obtained their masterpieces.
