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. I believe this spec...

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!

Re: Resistance: In my garden it's more than about black spot

Here in my middle GA garden my most spot-free (BS & cercospera) roses are Morning Magic, Miracle On The Hudson, Smiling Jean, Sophisticate, Seashell Sands, Spring Fever (the small shrub), Marinette & Ann (old Austin shrubs), Mike Shoup's Gideon Lincecum & Roemer's Hip Happy . . . some newly planted ...

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).

Re: Stripes - best seed and pollen parents?

Grimaldi is a relatively healthy striped rose here in GA. It sets hips quite easily. Another Delbard rose, Alfred Sisley, produced some really wild striped seedlings. A friend of mine has a really unique striped seedling from Princess Alexandra of Kent x Citrus Burst.

Re: Your best Mommas and Poppas for...

This past year Ping Lim's Golden Eye was very successful as a seed parent - great germination percentage. It is extremely BS resistant here in Middle GA. OP seedlings were various shades of red, red and white, pale yellow and apricot.

Re: First germinations of 2014

I have over 250 seedlings so far - however, many are OP. I'm still looking for nicely fertile seed parents. Oso Happy Candy Oh has proven to produce seedlings with extreme branching even at a very immature stage. One seedling has 6 buds, but is only 3" tall. I hope to see color soon! I do have sever...
