Re: 1987 ARA Dr. Basye A Probable Amphidiploid of Rosa Rugos

I am also enjoying watching my Basye's Legacy (probable amphidiploid X commander gillette) seedling grow, it is FINALLY just starting to grow stems after 8-9 months post germination. It has two tiny stems like a "V" configuration, one has tiny bristles I can just make out, the other is smooth. NO pr...

Re: Lena (shrub, Zuzek, 2007) seedling

The only time I got some sort of histamine-release type itch was when I messed around opening some R. bracteata hips. In that case, the "hairs" that came out of those hips gave me a nasty itch wherever they happened to fall onto my skin, but once rinsed off it was soon back to normal, with no treatm...

Re: Lena (shrub, Zuzek, 2007) seedling

Hmmm... I am very lucky that way, no allergies to pollen.

I hope I never get sensitized to it over time tho.......... *crosses fingers*.

Re: 1987 ARA Dr. Basye A Probable Amphidiploid of Rosa Rugos

..and, YES, of course the resulting tetraploidy of the 'Rosa moschata var. abysinnica Crépin × Rosa Rugosa 'Rubra' seedling (= probable amphidiploid) could well have been the result of a pollen donation from some other non-related rose in that garden via random insect visitations if the blooms had...

Re: 1987 ARA Dr. Basye A Probable Amphidiploid of Rosa Rugos

Hi Pierre, The reason I posted what I did was just to correct what appeared to be an error on a web database (see above, has since been amended through the course of time) regarding how The Probable Amphidiploid was produced. If I read Dr Basye's article correctly, my interpretation of what is writt...

LATE EDIT: above should more correctly read:

Hi Larry,

I have often wondered about that sort of streaking, thank you for shedding light on that one!

Re: 1989 ARA Dr. Basye Myrrh Scented Roses

Simon, those sound like great ideas. Hey... I was just thinking, another thing you might consider as well as what you are thinking, is to try germinating many OP R. wichurana seeds as well.....from things written elsewhere and if I recall correctly, I think this is how Dr Basye actually came up with...

Re: 1987 ARA Dr. Basye A Probable Amphidiploid of Rosa Rugos

Hi Kim, It appears to me from what Dr Basye reports here in this article (unless I am missing something), that his 'Probable Amphidiploid' (aka Basye's amphidiploid) i.e Rosa moschata var. abysinnica Crépin × Rosa Rugosa 'Rubr a' was created by him collecting OP seeds from the species cross, and t...
