Re: Rust

Here in California, rust is the main rose disease. There are a number of breeding lines I won't touch because they are guaranteed to rust. Playboy, Queen Elizabeth, nearly anything Hybrid Rugosa, nearly all Hybrid Arkansanas are guaranteed to rust here. Knock Outs? Oh, yes, mildew and rust. While th...

Re: Source for mossed miniatures

Yes to both of your questions. As the thrips are insects, you simply have to use whatever thermonuclear products required to eliminate them in your test beds and for any material you wish to share with others. Nurseries are required to spray their plants prior to moving them to other locations. Dr. ...

Re: Yellow Species Roses?

Pretty Lady X Fedtschenkoana only flowered in spring its first several years. It now flowers nearly monthly. I'm hoping for similar performance from Pretty lady X 1-72-1Hugonis.

Re: Source for mossed miniatures

I'm so sorry, Philip. I've seen their damage when visiting in Los Angeles and San Gabriel Counties after leaving the area. I read people writing "I treat my roses as spring flowering only so I don't have to spray" and think, why grow roses then?

Re: Source for mossed miniatures

I'm glad you were able to score some of them. It's honestly sad how little is available now compared to twenty-five years ago.

Re: Source for mossed miniatures

Burlington's 2020 miniature list shows Rose Gilardi and Scarlet Moss in stock. Of course you need to contact her to be sure they are still available, but at least that's two which have been heavily used for breeding.

Re: Yellow Species Roses?

Of course you can attempt any cross in both directions. Some will work, others won't. I most often use species pollen on moderns as I've found that more often results in viable seed and it's TREMENDOUSLY easier determining if the resulting seedlings are actual hybrids instead of selfs. Many (not all...

Re: Source for mossed miniatures

IF, and it appears from the complaints posted to Face Book and Houzz that might be a LARGE "IF", you receive the rose you ordered from RVR. One frequent purchaser from them I know in Idaho states she received a full 50% mis named roses this year, higher than previously. She purchases MANY roses annu...

Re: Source for mossed miniatures

Thanks, Tim. Burling is female. Burlington is the name of her nursery. She's lovely, but terribly over worked. She is a one person operation and how she handles it all is beyond me! I hope you're able to get some response from the Canadian nurseries. There ARE many of Mr. Moore's roses in gardens, b...

Re: Source for mossed miniatures

Hi Tim, you don't indicate where you live (US? Canada? Europe? etc.) which makes a huge difference. If you're in the US, probably the final remaining decent source of minis is Burlington Roses in Visalia, CA. Burling did the breeding, propagation and MANY other chores at Sequoia Nursery for over thi...

Re: Yellow Species Roses?

I use Xanthina, Primula and my 1-72-1Hugonis each season. I've put all three on Blue for You and Lilac Charm with no results. I would have thought Lilac Charm to be a sure fire choice but it didn't produce anything. I no longer grow that one.

Re: 0% germination, what am I doing wrong

Be aware that rodents and many birds LOVE rose seeds and tiny seedlings. Using the weather to supply "winter" is perfectly rational. Hopefully, you can protect them against any creatures which would find your smorgasbord delicious.

Re: "Outbox" vs "Sent"

I found two old ones from several years ago in the outbox, but when I hit the send or submit (whichever it is, I don't remember, though I sent a PM only a few hours ago) they show as 'sent' and are in the 'sent' mail. All of the others I sent in the interim since those two odd ones are in the "sent"...

Re: Splash and Dash equals Bad Technique?

Yes, Karl, as both Harkness and LeGrice wrote, water stress induces mildew. Dry the plants out sufficiently and you get diseases. When something mildews here, I increase the water. With my selections for this yard, that's done the trick.

You might find my thread about "Hesperhodos" interesting. I have "splashed and dashed" on Stellata mirifica for thirty or so years with the only result having been something Nature did without me. It wasn't until a few months ago when I aggressively drowned its blooms with Minutifolia pollen using a...

Re: Splash and Dash equals Bad Technique?

Very much like Pernet's "what black spot?" when asked about the black spot on his Pernetianas. And, Ralph Moore's "what rust?" when asked about the rust on so many of his beautiful hybrid Rugosas. Pernet grew his roses where black spot wasn't supported. Ralph grew his hybrid Rugosas where rust tradi...

Re: Splash and Dash equals Bad Technique?

You're welcome, but don't get your hopes up.... With all the types I tried growing in warmer zones than they were rated to, nearly all of them developed rust when waters stressed. Not all of them waited until the end of the season, either. Nature has paired the fungal issues with the plants to devel...

Re: Need Advice - I'm Just Starting Out

Blue for You has been RUDELY healthy for me in California, too. NO fungal issues what so ever. It's a fertile triploid which appears to self pollinate early. MANY seedlings I've raised from it have been obvious selfs. Most are wonderfully scented, as it is. Eyes for You is an offspring from Blue for...
