Re: Gloire des Rosomanes - experiences

Use very compact semi-dwarf moderns also words, at the 2nd generation. At 2nd gen, they come back down to Earth. In first gen, in most cases, hybrid vigor will dominate. Selecting for high vigor and shorter foliage internodes can be helpful down the road. In minis, as Kim suggests, similar is true. ...

Re: Rosa pomifera

Yeah, Apple Rose.

I will have to smell the foliage. We're both 6'3" and the seedlings are knee-height, so you can see how this was passed over lol. The TB hybrids are more down grey, which I think is neat.

Re: Rosa pomifera

I forgot to mention. The botanical we got Rosa californica from also had pinetorum. We wanted the pine rose, but after reading it is often susceptible to downy, we opted for the californica due to image searches online. Image searches are useful for looking at locals, and we chose a California botan...

Re: Gloire des Rosomanes - experiences

There was an Old Blush study done awhile ago. I tried to find it again, but could not. I know it included some of the red chinas. It included Pink Pet, among many other roses.

Rosa pomifera

Purple Pavement x Rosa pomifera My local botanist friend did a series of Purple Pavement x Rosa pomifera and Rosa pomifera x Therese Bugnet crosses. The downy foliage was dominant both ways. In both directions, most seedlings have had a much shorter stature than if PP or TB were selfs. I found this ...

Your OP, if self, could lead to any ploidy. If its a self, it could have interesting results.

Re: How to fix a newbie mistake?

"It's easier than I thought to get rid of some of these."

How does it feel to be a plant deity? :P

It becomes really easy, honestly. All it takes it trying to care of too many things, and suddenly the compost is full!

Re: Gloire des Rosomanes - experiences

Ive grown a Rosa primula for about 15 years now, and I think I give up on using it. The air is just too wet when it blooms, and even freezing pollen hasnt produced anything. The only hips I get are very rare and produce near-clones of the seed donor. I simply live in the wrong climate to use it imo.

Re: HelpMeFind Site

My local rose park redid the entire park due to road construction. They removed all of the roses and I guess had TVRS members take care of them for 2 years. They re-planted the park this spring. To my surprise, they removed ALL of the Ping Lim roses. You know... roses bred just an hour away. But the...

Re: Brand new to rose breeding, what to begin with?

One of the best uses of lineage queries on HMF is noting if the rose in question was used more often for seed or pollen. This may help one save time.

You may be on to something. I saw Royal QE could also be it. I tried to look at stamens of any of the white QE sports to see if they had pinkish male parts like in your photo, but could not find any showing male parts. It is a little hard to tell some traits since it was in a pot, but so far it seem...

Re: Does it matter which flowers on a given plant to use?

Honest opinion? Whatever is viable and ready. Slap and dash and go go go. If you have one or two bushes of X rose and your Y pollen is ready. Slap, dash, and go. The seed count will come out in the wash. The window of time for pollination is short in almost all climates due to climatic limitations. ...

Re: Brand new to rose breeding, what to begin with?

My first rose was a body bag of 'Goldilocks'. My Master Gardener friend I made when I was a teenager had a half dozen 'Playboy' for exhibiting so I got a floribunda too. Imagine my 14 year old surprise in regard to the world of difference in floribundas. Big oooof. My 2nd rose was 'American Honor', ...

Re: Brand new to rose breeding, what to begin with?

I grew 'At Last' when it was new. Floppy mess here in NW Oregon. Personally, I didn't see anything of value from it, but perceptions always differ.

I had higher hopes for it. Like a healthier 'Bonica' in apricot. But that was not the case.

Re: Pruning and Pollen Viability

Probably not out of the ball park with that one. I can see some merit into such a concept. Likewise, there is a relationship between total UV foliar coverage and seed count, set, and viability.

Re: Brand new to rose breeding, what to begin with?

OE Double Red is pollen fertile. I never tried it for seed. HMF is the best source. It's a living model that is constantly added to by the community. Sterility is a complex topic, so its best to just try and see in most cases. Triploidy can mean fully seed fertile, low seed fertility, or sterile. Th...
