Re: Needing some direction

Hi Will, I am so sorry for your loss. Commissioning a rose to be bred in your wife's honor is a romantic, lovely idea. It may not be realistic, depending upon your budget. Those who raise commercial roses, usually charge several thousand dollars and more to attach someone's name to a rose which may ...

Re: Pollen from Canary Bird

I live in an odd climate. We're very coastal, being nine miles from the Pacific Ocean, and "summer heat" often doesn't arrive until August, September or October and "spring" hangs around from January/February until then. Often, we'll have high pressure systems blow through, pushing the "heat" up a f...

Re: Pollen from Canary Bird

I'm sorry. You might investigate if there are any listed on Help Me Find or request on Face Book who grow it in your country. There ARE ways to find out such information and it will take a little investigative work. Good luck. I don't grow it. I do have Xanthina, my 1-72-1Hugonis and its hybrids but...

Re: Pollen from Canary Bird

You might find it easier to obtain your pollen if you access the Spinosissima Roses Face Book page. If people anywhere have what you're looking for, I'd imagine they would be there. Len Heller likely grows it and may be of assistance. https://www.facebook.com/groups/540318416355334/ Actually, per hi...

Don't feel badly. 99% of us wouldn't have any idea what any of them really are.

Re: Apples and Oranges

Leonidas, Brown Velvet, Black Tea, Jocelyn and Victoriana were all much more "brown" in cooler weather and more orange in hotter. I imported Brown Velvet from Harkness in Britain the year before Edmund's began offering it (I knew mine didn't have RMV!) and that color shift from orange to the purple ...

Re: Apples and Oranges

Perhaps Brown Velvet and Leonidas are from similar actions?

Re: Apples and Oranges

Hi Karl, did you count Ernie's ploidy? It isn't listed on HMF as triploid and that should be something we'd like to add if it is known to be. Thank you.

Re: Apples and Oranges

Whomever still grows Orangeade and Angel Face should make a ton of that "gray with orange edge" cross to see if something like it might result again.

Re: purple stamens

There are many with red stamen. Think Dainty Bess and White Wings to name just two.

Re: purple stamens

You can find a number with intensely dark stamen in the Hulthemia types. The pigments concentrated in the central disk of the flower and continue up the stamen.

Yes, sometimes more like climbers when find the suitable climate and conditions.

Re: Grandiflora or Hybr. Floribunda?

Genetically? Probably not, but very few care about the genetics. What the consuming public is most concerned about is whether the terms allow them to picture whether the product will fill the desire they have. "Shrub" tells most people nothing, though, other than climbers, they are all "shrubs" and ...

Re: Grandiflora or Hybr. Floribunda?

It's significantly more simple than that. "Grandiflora" and "Floribunda" are completely baseless, nonsensical terms created by marketing executives to describe plant habits and sizes which weren't conveniently described by already existing descriptions. "Floribunda" simply meant "abundant flowers" b...

Re: Homemade rooting hormones

Just to make sure I am relating it properly, the heat comes after the cuttings are unwrapped and individually planted. If the wraps are too warm, they won't callus.

Re: Homemade rooting hormones

Larry, try adding heat. I had no issues getting roots from callus in Encino (Zone 10a,inland valley heat with marine influence). I get callus which often stalls here in 9b by the ocean with cold/wet, particularly with Teas and Chinas. It can be thirty degrees colder here than Encino.
