Re: Trivial Pursuit for Plant Breeders

Man, you guys are quick. Kim, is it really that homely? I was kinda hoping to succumb to its charms in the Stark catalog.

Re: Trivial Pursuit for Plant Breeders

Ok, I'll try a question. What crop developed by Luther Burbank is an oxymoron?

Re: Trivial Pursuit for Plant Breeders

At CornelI University's apple orchards a couple of years ago, I was delighted to run across a plump, red, half-sized little apple with amazing flavor and texture and a perfect name: Snapdragon. A new favorite.

Re: First germinations from 2020 crosses.

Wow, Andre, [forgive the lack of accent], these are some dynamic crosses. I like the idea of breeding for scented foliage as well as hardiness and beauty. Thanks for the inspiration!

Mongoose, you are a genius! Thank you for sharing this technique. I will bookmark this entry so that I can follow your protocol when I work with my next batch of seeds.

Re: Source for Condoleeza

Hi TimHAll. For what it's worth, the ARS local chapters in California have fundraising sales, usually in the autumn, where you can get your mitts on all kinds of harder-to-find roses. I've had a great time snooping around their websites, Santa Clarita and San Diego's to name a couple. Hi Kim! You al...

Re: A beginner's question

Hi Kim. Micaela at Heirloom Roses says the version of Cl Cecile Brunner that they carry repeats in flushes throughout the season. Sounds like your good deed will spread to the rest of us! Thank you.

Re: A beginner's question

Hi Kim! Burling sent me a kind response immediately. She said she didn't know if her Cl Cecile Brunner is the same clone you shared from Huntington. She reports that it has a spring bloom, with scattered bloom after. Hmm. Maybe I need to drop a line to Rogue Valley Roses. I hope they have time to an...

Re: A beginner's question

Thanks, Kim! This is wonderful news. Burling Leong just sent me her rose list (amazing!....and the list of minis is too!) and I notice it includes Cl. Cecile Brunner. She was a associate of the late Ralph Moore at Sequoia, so I am in hope that the clone she offers is derived from your work at the Hu...

Re: A beginner's question

Kim, thank you for your informative response...and the encouragement! Extremely interesting. Le Vesuve is definitely in my plans now. Stefan, the possibility of some climbing sports being indistinguishable from the bush forms is also an interesting idea. I'm thinking of some of the comments about La...

A beginner's question

Hi all. I was looking at Cl. Le Vesuve on Helpmefind. What a beauty! Rogue Valley has it and the non-climbing original. When used in hybridizing, does the climbing sport characteristic affect the offspring raised from a cross using it? In other words, would it make a difference if I used the origina...

Re: Seedling from 2 years ago

It is a subtle beauty. Is it scented? Apple scented like QE? Maybe it will be stronger-stemmed in its second season.

Re: A sport or just quirky news...

Thanks, Kim, for your encouraging words. We really are extremely fortunate to be able to move there. And as for the monsters...bring 'em on! I have a list a mile long of roses I have dreamed of growing there. Thanks also for your practical advice about how to wrangle the photos. I'll get right on it...
