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: Cläre Grammerstorf × Prairie Peace

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

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.

Re: First germination of the winter

Looking forward to your report on the outcome.
