Re: R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

Case closed - with 98% certainty in my books. An anonymous rose friend suggested its Rosa Virginiana Plena. To my eyes, when comparing to the "Old Rosarian" bloom photo and color on HMF it is dead on ... Now how does a R. virginiana decide after 10 years to change to a "Plena" ? ... as a friend said...

Re: R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

One written technical faux pas, vs my previously stated, is the study rose has NO petiole prickles. Caveat: <<5% of leaf petioles have, but only one prickle that are small and poorly developed. The 1807 exotic canina (pleno) description notes them appearing on the petiole, as well as on canine examp...

Re: R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

Bush shot - the white and unopened buds mark extent of canes - gap between leaves makes me wonder if it wants to climb - can not get better shot without taking down rabbit fence.

Re: R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

Well taking the pessimistic view it must be another rose came into the exact same spot - it happened to my last Red Dawn - was (The) Hunter. I take this opinion for now because can’t believe a whole rose became unstable and sported, plus id’ing a new diagnostic fail. This view point is in spite of t...

Re: R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

Txs There are a dozen buds plus in the waiting on a number of canes. And to be proven wrong, the majority have the appearance in bud of going semi-double. Being slightly impatient, I partially forced one on another cane and it seems to be semi. With rose now in full sun via hard pruning the neighbou...

R. Virginiana Bloom Sports

Show and tell time. Pruning Kakawa to give more sun to an original R. virginiana (10yrs old) that was buried by it. Pleasantly surprised to find an old, but very semi-double bloom, versus normal over the years ... superior looking rose, using some imagine, if l had seen bloom earlier. Bloom same wid...

Re: All A'Twitter x Yatkan

Always read with interest your mild condrum as to whether your Carolina and Virginian are one in the “ sane “ or mildly distinct at the surface, not genetic level. I can only see a difference in bloom size in mine - based on nursery label as orinal claim. Carolina label blooms about 1/3 larger on a ...

The first photo is how l protect Officinalis and Splendens - planted within “ circled wagons” of wind breaking spinossisimas. Bloom just about done. The second photo is the first non-wintered helenae hybrid to bloom, Lens Red Robin. The floret, almost Musk type of bloom, is absent in my gardens. The...

Re: R. gallica Splendens x Above and Beyond's first bloom

Hi Hannu Thanks for the nursery name and link. Went back again to CFIA and still can not get a positive hit on importing from Finland. Agreed, pretty much a waste of time to ignore one’s growing experience telling one not to go down that road ... and the wrong application of sisu. A goal of breeding...

Solved the FRS translation road block by using Google translate, and does a good job and easy to use, now travel freely through the gallery and most of the site.
