Re: Basye's "Probable Amphidiploid" now extinct?

Both Robert Rippetoe and Paul responded with the same Yahoo email for Joan. Unfortunately, that email failed as "disabled" this morning. The last either stated they had been in contact with her was . I hope someone else has something more current and you can make contact. Sorry about that.

Re: Basye's "Probable Amphidiploid" now extinct?

I don't know how to contact Joan, Philip. I will email Paul Barden to see if he does. Hopefully, someone else here may know. I have Legacy and you're welcome to cuttings if you want them...

Re: Autumn color

I love all of those examples! Yes, Philip, Morsoucrest (Dawn Crest) has gorgeous seasonal coloring and it SMELLS so good! Here, it never ceased flowering. I have shared this seedling's summer flowering and coloring previously here http://rosebreeders.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=56087&p=68625&hilit...

Re: Chip Budding Questions

Or, a single edged razor blade also works splendidly. When it gets dull, you toss it. If you're concerned about transmitting diseases between plants, use it for one variety then toss it. I have several "budding knives" (somewhere) and none of them have been as easily handled nor as sharp as the blad...

Hi Matt, some other observations you may find useful...Burling Leong of Burlington Roses, propagated (among MANY other functions) for Sequoia Nursery for nearly four decades.

Re: Root Intermingling for Synchronous Blooming

So, in your friend's mind, intermingling the roots of genetically dissimilar cultivars can synchronize their flowering? Wouldn't that be wonderful? I could plant all the gallicas which won't flower here among a bed of Iceberg....

Re: So what's your magic number for days to harvest?

Congratulations, Chuck! That honestly shouldn't surprise us, though. Nature provides for the perpetuation of the species. Seeds being able to last extremely long periods of time frozen seems it should likely be the norm rather than something unusual. Whether you subscribe to "intelligent design", ev...

Re: How common are sports?

Once you are familiar with what to expect from your roses, spotting a sport actually requires little time and not a lot more attention than you probably already pay them. ANYTHING which appears out of the ordinary can be a sport. Sometimes it's as insignificant as a lighter colored wedge on a darker...

Re: rose hips without inner hair?

Ralph Moore dabbled with that idea but nothing of note ever came of it. Week's Roses introduced a Rugosa called Sweet Hips through Gurney Seed and Henry Fields. It is noted for having extremely large, tasty hips. Basye's Legacy-Commander Gillette-Basye's Thornless (as they are all the same rose) has...

Re: pirate bug behavior -mites - thrips

This was posted on Garden Web in a post about Chilli Thrips. The gist of the study is, these varieties of ornamental peppers possess the necessary structures on their foliage to provide "housing" for the listed predatory mites. These mites are commercially available. They are omnivorous, eating poll...

Karl, unfortunately, unless someone like Joan Monteith still has it, that seedling is LONG gone. It was gone from that garden long before it was dismantled in 2007.

Re: Basye's "Probable Amphidiploid" now extinct?

Thanks David, but Burling never had it. I doubt Paul had it and I haven't had it in MANY years. I wish I had my repeat flowering self seedling of it, but like MANY others, it's long gone. Philip and I have been in contact about it.

Re: repeat bloom in Wasagaming???

Help Me Find-Roses shares the statement "Occasional repeat later in the season." so it seems repeat isn't that unusual. Climate could easily affect "repeat". We frequently receive odd repeat bloom here due to the climate. Banksiae lutescens is flowering for the third time since the initial spring fl...

Hi Joe, we're back down into our "normal"temps now of low to mid seventies during daylight and the forties at night.

Re: Questions about seedlings traits

Yes, I've played with the Veilchenblau (and IXL) blue tones as well as Mr. Bluebird, Faurax and my seedling of it, Lauren. IXL is the deepest slatey-blue here and likes the climate. It's flowering for the fourth time so far this year!
