Re: Nyveldt's Whtie x Miracle on the Hudson

For whatever it is worth, a CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) officer advised me that sending pollen to or from the U.S. is not restricted. So go ahead and send it without worry.

Re: Agnes as parent?

For whatever it is worth, I've never found Agnes makes seed. And for the first time my plant of Hansa set a lot of op large hips this summer. Possibly because we had double the normal amount of rainfall this year?

Re: Prairie Sweetheart «Sport»?

You might want to try rooting a cutting from that cane. It would be neat if the new double flowers carried through to make a whole plant.

Jens Munk rose

Interesting historical column about the Jens Munk rose. Published in the Winnipeg Free Press. Thanks to Paul Olsen for pointing it out.

Re: Grid for pollen measurement

Thanks Joe. I often use frozen pollen and check for viability with a standard microscope. The pocket microscope will sure be faster than fussing around preparing slides.

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

The foliage is particularly attractive too. A very nice blend achieved from two very different parents.

Re: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

"a Zone 3 cane-hardy, fully reblooming rose that's not a rugosa."

Well said. That is indeed the "Holy Grail" for northern rose breeders.

That is a cross I wish I had the opportunity to make. Nice! Good chance you'll have a modest second flush late season similar to Prairie Peace.

I've not seen 'Morning Magic' sold in the nurseries or growing in Alberta.

Re: First germination of the winter

That sounds like a great cross Rob. 'Ramblin Red' does well at the University of Alberta Botanic Garden.
Looking forward to your report on the outcome.
