Re: 'Chinook Sunrise' met its sunset

Interesting update - OC in Calgary had 3 bloom cycles with last cycle finished 2 weeks ago producing deep orange blooms unlike previous two. CR was almost a continuous bloomer from multiple examples (4) plants but alas boring and washed out color - will be given a couple more years to improve as occ...

The booth attendant did skate with UK eloquence and grace, and stated what's deemed a weed there may not be in the new world ... sounds like good easy base stock for hybridizing and not worrying about replant issues

Re: Rose replant disease?

Though l do change out the old soil in the gardens for replants l have not done it for the grow room efforts and tend to recycle the same soil after the indoor winter growing seasons.

Re: Rose replant disease?

I dig out the soil used by the previous resident and replace with new black earth products which involves some hard looking as everything seems to be the equivalent of loon - - - - or lots of peat with sticks. Use spent soil- to dress remaining lawn. Read about Replant but not a believer though appe...

Versicolor Pink Carefree Beauty

Is it common for this rose to produce canes where all bloom are are “versicoloured” ? Other cane blooms “ normal pink ”.

Any experience on whether cane bloom hips have a high probability of reproducing versicolouring?

Or if legal cuttings of cane reproducing pattern or is it roll the dice?
