Re: Variegated Leaves

I saw this variegated rose in a garden outside of Philadelphia in 2014. I forget whose garden it was in but I can likely track that down. He didn't know the name of the rose but said it was always variegated and stable. Anyone have an idea??

Re: Barden Atomics - Dakota Redwing

Here’s a shot of my plant in our community garden (a friend just sent the pic). Full of blooms and about 5’ tall.

Re: Barden Atomics - Dakota Redwing

I’ve had Dakota Redwing for a couple of years now. I used it last year as a seed parent. It set good full hips and so far I’ve got good germination. Waiting on first blooms now. Sadly I won’t be using it this spring as my plant is in our local community garden and I’m avoiding going during the curre...

Re: purple stamens

I grew a seedling from my first Hulthemia hybrid crossed with Home Run. Deep dark stamens but sadly a very poor bloomer and a weak plant. Haven’t made something similar again.

Re: first roses of the year

Thanks Rob. The powdery mildew is just starting to appear here and there in the garden. Will know if these seedlings get it soon enough. So far so good!

Re: First blooms vs mature blooms on seedlings

Thanks Larry! The original plant is shaping up nicely, about 3’x3’. Very few thorns/spines/prickles and no diseases here in Los Angeles (no powdery/downy mildew or rust, hard to test for black spot here). Good bloomer and fragrant. Hoping to enter some in the rose show here this weekend if I have so...

Re: first roses of the year

Here are the first of the year for me. All sister seedlings of PL4 x Koko Loko (PL4 is one of my own, you can see pics of it on HMF). There's the tiniest hulthemia blotch in each of them but I was hoping for some more interesting colors. More to come!

Re: First blooms vs mature blooms on seedlings

I haven't noticed any particular seedling going from 'meh' to amazing but some have improved their form as they've matured. Here's one that has particularly impressed me as it's 'grown up'. The first bloom was loose and floppy, reminiscent of a loose tea rose shape, but I had a hunch it was worth wa...

Re: English Roses - finding good seed parents

I grow a lot of David Austin's roses here in Los Angeles. We don't have the problems of blackspot that so many others do so they're really great garden roses here. A few are more prone to rust than others and some years the powdery mildew is worse than others but in general they're very strong growe...

Re: Why do some seedlings "close" at nite?

I work with a lot of singles and semi-doubles and almost all seem to close to a certain degree at night. I'm thinking most roses would if they had fewer petals but we may not notice it in more heavily petaled roses.

Re: Some new Hulthemia Hybrids being developed

Beautiful seedlings Warren! Congrats on all of your successes. I've been working on hulthemia seedlings for a few years now too. Jim was kind enough to share a seedling with me in 2011 and all of my hulthemia hybrids descend from that one in some way or another. I'll try to post a few pics of some o...

I have another dozen or so OP hips from 11MWW and about 20 OP hips from Lychee Lemonade. Anyone want to try a few this year?

Re: saw flies

Thanks for the intel Kim. Most of my garden is semi-shaded at various times of the day and we did have some "June-gloom"y mornings here in Santa Monica. I'm sure that contributed to the sawfly explosion. Aphids haven't been a problem nor has powdery mildew I'm happy to report. Expecting warmer weath...
