opinions on retaining a seedling

Here in Georgia W. Radler's Brite Eyes has been an outstanding rose. Lots of research indicates resistance to a particular strain of black spot. The same research shows that it doesn't always pass along that resistance to offspring. I have an OP seedling out of Brite Eyes that is all yellow with abo...

Re: Source for Condoleeza

Re: chili thrips. I haven't seen them here in central GA, perhaps we get sufficient winter weather. Jacksonville, ST. Augustine, FL on the other hand have epic infestations. I haven't used any insecticides or miticides in the last six years or so. Perhaps this is a key to minimizing pest issues in m...

Re: Source for mossed miniatures

I have a 3 year-old plant of Strawberry Swirl, a striped mini with moss characteristics that I was considering giving away this winter. If you're interested Tim let me know.

R. banksiae lutescens hips

I am harvesting op seeds from R. banksiae lutescens. Years ago I germinated about two dozen seedlings but a hospitalization resulted in their demise. If you are interested reach out at hoy127@cox.net.

Hasn't Rolf Sievers done a good bit of work with the Alba family? He replies to facebook messages and has kindly given me permission to use some of his photos in my newsletter.

Re: Open Pollinated seeds

I experiment quite a bit with op hips. It provides me with info about that plant as a mother - germination %, variation, repeat flowering, etc.

Prickle free

For those interested in pursuing smooth roses, I raised an OP seedling out of Mike Shoup’s Promises. No prickles on mature stems. Tiny bristles on new growth that disappear as stems mature.

foliage oddity

Early this growing season I noticed an unusual shoot on my plant of Paul Ecke, Jr. Stems and leaves were creamy yellow with no green at all. New growth normally has a reddish tint and that characteristic is still observable on this branch. After 3 months or so the branch continues to produce similar...

Re: Surprise Golden Eye offspring

Very good - almost totally spot free, although our growing season is so long that few things don't get some spotting (BS, anthracnose, cercospera). I'm very happy with the results.

Re: Rosa spinosissima article

Henry - thanks for posting the article. Of note, the attribution of several photos requires amending. Photo of 'Orinda' is by Harry McGee (my error) and the hybrids of 'Priaire Peace' I indicated were raised by Werner Schenkel arose from OP seeds sent to him by Margit Schowalter.

Surprise Golden Eye offspring

I've been using Ping Lim's 'Golden Eye' as a pollen parent for several years mainly because it is very BS resistant. I've gotten a real mixed bag of results but this seedling is a shocker!

Volunteer seedling

I found this last summer when I was weeding under 'Mateo's Silk Butterflies.' Initially had only 6 or 7 petals but has begun to show what looks to me to be Noisette characteristics. There is a 'Alister Stella Gray' nearby. Has a nice fragrance!

Re: First germinations

Transplanting seedlings of:
Manhattan Blue x Doorenbos Selection
Lafter x Paul Ecke, Jr.
Seashell Sands x My Stars
&
OP seedlings from Nyveldt's White and Ping Lim's Golden Eye (which by the way is very fertile as a seed parent - producing red blends, apricots, pale yellow).
