Re: Anyone breeding for fall color?

I noticed glauca was used as seed parent some. Is there a big difference using it as seed parent or pollen parent? A reason to use it one way as
opposed to the other? Vigor and health sound good. Hips for added color also a bonus.

Re: New Roses in Crosses This Year

Jim, how did things go with Desdamona? Was the pollen viable? Did the flowers set hips that you left on plant? How is the fragrance? Disease? I have been seeing pictures all season from people on instagram, along with rave reviews from around the globe. But wondering if it would be useful for breedi...

Re: Anyone breeding for fall color?

Trudeau is certainly colorful foliage. I noticed the parentage is not listed. How fragrant is it? Also, no descendants listed. Do you know if anyone has used it successfully in breeding? Glauca is certainly a thought. Appears to have produced some roses. Some fragrance, how much exactly? And does th...

Re: Letting the bees do the work

It seems the most major factor, obviously, would be self-incompatibility. Also, from my own seed parents (not a lot of experience with them) some seem to be far more variable in seedlings than others, whether I crossed them or not. Therese Bugnet comes to mind, my seedlings from her (as seed parent)...

Re: Wasagaming and Snow Pavement as seed parents

donald, thanks for the upate! Sorry to hear about wasag x campfire, seems like a lot of potential in that cross, if only the genes would agree.
Good to hear about Easy Going x Wasag. Look forward to hearing about it next year.

Re: Question about seed ripening and pollen parent

Thank you Karl for that: I never would have thought of being able to at such a young age! I excised seeds that were full age and then had been in fridge but still weren't germinating. It worked for some of them. But to think of so soon after pollinations... the possibilities.

Anyone breeding for fall color?

I was wondering who was working with fall foliage in mind? How is it going? Any recommendations you would have for breeders in that direction? I wasn't planning initially for fall color, but the second season some seedlings were a bit bigger and strung out like a hedge the impact was pretty signific...

Re: Wasagaming and Snow Pavement as seed parents

beautiful growth on some of those! Space certainly becomes an issue. Really good to know about juvenile bloomers from Snow Pavement. I have only had one Juvenile bloomer in cold hardy and that was from Therese Bugnet.
Thanks for the update. Good luck with those!

Re: repeat bloom in Wasagaming???

Thanks Kim! I have never been in a climate like this before, so odd to see how different things can be. Perhaps not odd, just very different than what I am used to. It will be interesting to see what the odds of it passing on repeat will be.

Re: Strange hips

I just finished removing seeds from four hips (same seed x pollen parent for all four), all of which were like the one you show. Sorry I didn't think of taking pictures. But then I came to the fifth hip: no seeds outside of it, although it was a very fat hip. I noted immediately that it was a differ...

repeat bloom in Wasagaming???

I just noticed some blooms forming on Wasagaming, mixed in with the golden fall foliage. Does it normally repeat if given a long enough season. It was blooming when I first saw it in the nursery months ago, when I resisted the urge to buy it. It had hips forming on it when it went on sale, so I purc...

Re: Strange hips

I have had this happen, especially with The Squire. Seeds can be viable and germinate, probably depends on the rose. I have several seedlings from seeds like that. I just harvested four different hips like that, hopefully they will be as successful as they have in the past.

Re: Odd little seedling

You aren't the only one.
Also, Kim, thanks for mentioning the disbudding. I have a seedling that is really slow in filling out, but has been blooming too frequently this year. Maybe I'll try a bunch of disbudding and see what some time does for it.

Re: Question about seed ripening and pollen parent

I was sorting through hips to check them and went through a bag of hips from The Generous Gardener. It has been disease free for me (obviously others may have had other experience in their locations) and it has survived the winter for me. It dies back, but its vigor brings it back quickly. I placed ...

Re: albino? or something else?

thought I would post an update on this seedling. The one from James Gallway (shown) died. But the two from Rugelda survived.
I'll try to attach a picture of the more colorful one. THough it has yet to bloom.

Re: Wasagaming and Snow Pavement as seed parents

curious how your Wasagaming seedlings are doing. Glad to hear it at least accepts some pollen, although I think I will test its pollen more extensively. Surprised to see it accepts Campfire, although obviously pleased. Any updates on any of these seedlings?

I am looking for at least snow level cane hardiness in zone 5 and eventually zone 4, but that is at the point of attaining good repeat bloom along with beauty and fragrance. A lot will depend (I think) on generations required to reach good repeat bloom an...

Re: Questions about seedlings traits

I was just thinking of the variability of fragrance (person to person, but also location to location) and wondering if that is true for leaves and mossing as it is for flowers? Then I read the last two items and realized it is just as true for color. I thought of Queen of Violets as, well Violette (...
