Re: Yellow roses

Hi Johannes, Good question. I was out harvesting hips yesterday. Since I keep track of my failures as well as my successful crosses. I couldn't help but noticing on some of the F1 kordesii breeding stock, the intended cross failed and right next to it, are fat, juicy hips that are open pollinated. ....

Re: Yellow roses

Hi David,
Thanks for your reply. I crossed R.N.S with some of my own hybrids. And some of the Explorer hybrids.
What is the ploidy of R.N.S? Not listed on HMF.

Re: Yellow roses

As I posted on this tread before. I've employed Rise N Shine to breed yellows. These seedlings
have survived two seasons of Canadian Prairie winter weather and showing decent blackspot resistance.
What I'm having trouble with,few of these R.N.S seedling set hips.
Have anyone experienced the problem?

Re: Sweet Magic

Hi Simon, thanks for your input. I guess S.M is not well known, because it's not offered for sale in North America.
My idea was to cross it with some of my kordesii derived breeding stock.

Re: Question

Hi sharlene, hoping you are having a great summer.
Like you I see this often in one of my mothers. To the best of my memory, I still get exceptional germination from
this rose.

Re: Developing double flowers by selfing

Hi Paul,
Karl K delved into the subject of selfing a plant species to get certain genetic expressions.
The article he cited was by Luther Burbank breeding of the Beach Plum, (prunus Maritima).
Maybe Karl can republish some of his research.

Re: Klima

Hi Joe,
Greetings to you, nice to see you post. The HMF link by "jwindha", shows that Mitchie used Klima in her programme.
Can you please say something about its breeding habits? It's willingness to accept pollen, and set hips.
How well did the seeds germinate?

Re: Yellow roses

Thanks David, NowI know I'm not imagining this. In 2014, I bought three plants each of Rise N Shine, Bees Knees, and Calpoly. I was able to get lots of viable pollen and harvested lots of viable seeds. I am now evaluating some of these 2014 seedlings, some of the are impressive. When I look at the 2...

Re: Yellow roses

Hi everyone, It's been along time since I've posted on this subject. Have anyone noticed when working with mins, that sometimes though the plant is covered with blooms, the primordial hips are underdeveloped on some flowers, these flowers often are undersized and don't have pollen. I'm noticing the ...

Re: How long do we wait for first bloom?

Simon, I think sometimes the blooming can be influenced by whether the rose is in a pot or in the ground. I had Chloris in a pots for years. It didn't die, but it never thrived. I would be lucky to get one bloom per year. Last spring I took the chance and planted it in a protected area. This year it...

Re: How long do we wait for first bloom?

David Z. Told me more the ten years ago that when I cross Explorer roses into modern roses they sometimes take a few
years to bloom. I waited ten years for a modern x near species cross to bloom. It blooms steady now for an extended
Period of time. I'm using it's pollen now.

Re: Few of the more mature seedlings

Hello Lizlee, beautiful seedlings. Thanks for posting, nice to see more people working on roses on this side of the border. I'm surprised to see you get so double a seedling out of Morden Sunrise. All the seedlings I've gotten from MS have all been singles or semi-doubles. Maybe I'm crossing with th...

Re: Chloris

....a few comments on this rose would be deeply appreciated. With a zone 3b hardiness and thornlessness. I though
Chloris may offer a path to winter hardy thornless yellow roses.
