Re: germinating seedling

Aloha hawaii was seed parent. Time will tell, but one of three pollens: Wasagaming, A Shropshire Lad, or Lilian Austin. There were a cluster of blooms and I used either one of the English Roses pollen along with Wasagaming pollen hoping to make it more receptive. Hopefully I am correct and will be a...

germinating seedling

I noticed this while I was checking the seedlings for moisture. At first I thought that I had accidentally put two germinated seeds in the same place (which is a possibility). However, I don't have that many germinations right now, so I am working very slowly, placing each germinated seed in place w...

Re: Rooted Cuttings Failure Question?

I didn't realize Gertie was so difficult to root. Is it possible to try pegging for some of your plants? I am glad to hear your cuttings seem to be making it!

Re: Can Somebody Explain 'Replicative Fading'?

Would this (or how should this) translate into reproduction of our own seedlings that we wish to have more copies for testing or breeding with? Are there steps to take starting with the first plant and those thereafter that we can take to avoid this? Or is this usually amplified over time by many co...

Re: rugosa x glauca

Thanks! One of the reasons I wanted to grow them out, at least for a bit, was just to see the variation in one batch of seeds. I'll see how vigorous they are and then how much room I can give them. They already need repotted, roots are vigorous anyway. I'm not sure their next pots will be big enough...

rugosa x glauca

The seedlins are still very small, so we'll see what happens with color as they grow; but there is clear color difference in seedlings. I'm curious to see if purple and rugose can combine on foliage to some degree. About half the seeds have germinated so far.

Re: Seedling/genetics question

What a beautiful rose Ruglauca is! I noticed it may be a self of the species cross. Interesting. Now I wonder, what if (perhaps after selfing one of these) you cross two seedlings: like Ruglauca with another cross like these. Would using a seedling like Ruglauca work with one these work to get prefe...

Re: Seedling/genetics question

Thanks for that. Interesting to see other results similar. It will also be interesting to see what fertility ends up like. I don't have any plans for it. Although I am exploring options for cold hardiness and disease resistance.I was wondering if combining Rugosa with other species before crossing w...

Seedling/genetics question

I have seeds germinated from the Rugosa I asked about recently, looks like David Thompson. (Obviously much like Jen's Mini, from pictures on HMF) Anyway, the rose growing across the path from it was Rosa Glauca (rubrifolia, however you spell that). One of the seedlings is all purple, stems,leaves an...

Re: Handling cold-hardiness

Ah, I was wondering if you were referring to the Okanogan Valley. We were living in the Okanagan highlands uphill east of the valley. Now relocated a bit south and west in Methow Valley. Just unusual to see the word "Okanagan" as it is rather unique. Wish I had known about that nursery when we had v...

Re: i.d. this rugosa hybrid???

Wrong leaves, certainly not Frontenac, although that is a rose I should probably get. Jens Munk looks really close, although no white stripe down the middle of each petal. David Thompson definitely seems like closest match. Except for the hips. I'm wondering if warmer summers may permit hips, like w...

Re: i.d. this rugosa hybrid???

So, is that the experience of others? I remember some saying Hansa doesn't set hips, yet mine was always completely covered in hips. Environmental for Hansa, probably. What about David Thompson? Anyone see hips on yours anywhere? Or is this a different rose? It had a lot of hips on it. Thanks for th...

Re: i.d. this rugosa hybrid???

David Thompson looks like it could be it. Color and leaves look correct. HMF says strong fragrance, I remember thinking it smelled like Therese but I thought it was a stronger fragrance. So maybe this is right. Has anyone worked with it? There are no descendants listed on HMF. Any experience? It loo...

Re: i.d. this rugosa hybrid???

Growth looked much like Therese Bugnet, so I thought it was her at a distance, mostly upright, slightly spreading. I don't remember spice to the scent, seems like it was like Therese in fragrance also. Didn't notice mauve tones to the pink, at least not much. Although leaves look like on Magnifica. ...

i.d. this rugosa hybrid???

This rose bush was growing at a local nursery. They said it was planted a long time ago (not sure what that means exactly) and the name is lost. Any ideas as to what variety this could be? What I found interesting is that the leaves were very rugose yet small (really small compared to many) and very...

You can do it whenever, I believe. There was a link on here (if I remember correctly) to the article of instructions written for it. Can someone direct to it? or maybe try searching the site for "embryo extraction". I usually start doing this late in the winter, after germinations have been going fo...

About one third of seeds germinated and I have kept two seedlings from them to observe for a c...

Re: Germinating in soil vs paper towel?

last couple of winters, due to moving and space, I have just kept my seeds in the paper towel in the fridge. When the paper started to get moldy I just replaced it with new paper. I used to get all the seeds out and plant at one time. But since I started getting germinations in the fridge I now wait...
