Re: Register a Rose

Guff that is a fantastic thoughtful idea for your grandparents if that is what I am reading about this rose from your post above. I do love the color and health of it. If you choose to could you mention the other parent please of it.

Re: Sister Cross to 22A-12

2i07 Firecracker is a better color than Tequilla Sunrise IMO, how does the red/orange hold up to the sun.

22C-03, John you mention some fading, any shots of it totally opened and faded, I am curious to see to what degree it did fade.

John, a couple of good one's again, well done.

John, as Warren has mentioned a fantastic color combination, I guess as a bonus it wouldn't have sent/smell would it. ?

Re: New Cross - 16C-11

Hi JohnJ, is the yellow influence fro Peace or from 15G-06 (Jelinek). The other thing that comes to mind is, would it have any fragrance.

Re: Benardella

Of the ones listed, we in OZ do not have them to the best of my knowledge. 'Kirsten' would be nice to have. Soroptimist International love the shape and color of this. @pladley, yes he was a very approachable man. I don't suppose you have any of his HT roses. When I was at a rose nursery(1991) that ...

Benardella

Whilst sitting here this morning(Saturday) about my trip to England and rose breeders in general, I thought about Mr Benardella and his roses. So my open question is, "is anyone using his material in their breeding"

Re: Huge percentage of hips aborting

Jackie, this is going to be a silly question in reply to your post. When you say that you pollinate over three days, "do you do the same flower" or different ones on the bush.
