Re: First Ruglauca F1

Congrats, Rob!

I'm interested, too. Also still interested in an R#3 cutting....I failed to get the others to root.

Re: New germinations

Those sound like awesome crosses, Liz! Yesterday I took a look and was happy to see my first germinations. Now I'm not sure what to do, since they're in the seedling flats in the cooler. I'm not sure I've ever had germinations this early. Maybe I'll try to dig them out and transplant them and get th...

Re: 'Darlow's Enigma' Experience?

I'm also curious if it can survive and/or bloom in Zone 3.

Re: Culling Strategies

My concern with intentionally stressing seedlings is that I'd be too good at it. My poor babies! Luckily when I plant roses out in the field it is a great test of disease resistance, drought tolerance, and cold hardiness. As Julie Overom has pointed out, disease resistance and winter hardiness are i...

Re: How important is a warm stratification period?

Thanks, David. Good to know. I can't remember if I told you...I ended up with exactly one seed from a cross with your Lemon Fluff x (R. virg x R. laxa), and few seeds from my crosses with Orange Honey (x Frontenac and x my KOWB). I went ahead and put them into the fridge. Most of the seeds floated, ...

How important is a warm stratification period?

This article has a rather dramatic picture of the effect of a two month warm stratification on seeds of R. canina. Most people here mention giving their seeds a warm stratification period before the cold period. I have a few seeds that I'm going to sow tomorrow that I collected off of hips that I p...

Re: Newsletter Articles Needed!

I think you'd better write that article on yellows, Julie! I think Betsy will be happy to get any articles, regardless of whether they happen to match the symposium topic. I for one am super interested in your progress with hardy yellows (and the pictures).

Re: Sean McCann

A variant on Jim and Mark's advice:

go to www.helpmefind.com

click on "Breeders" from the left-hand sidebar

search for "mccann"

Click on his name

Click on the "Plants Bred" tab (Just above the green bar with his name on it on the top of the page)

Re: Germination with calcium nitrate-formula

I was just thinking about Prairie Peace, which I've read is a rose that sets plenty of hips but has trouble germinating. Someone has had success with embryo rescue of PP, so we know the seeds are viable. Likewise, yellow roses that wait until the second year to germinate. Larry, are you doing any re...

Re: Cold storage question

I think roses have a tendency of breaking dormancy frustratingly early in storage...they like cool weather. However, I'd not recommend putting a light in there...that will just encourage them, and it wouldn't likely be enough light to provide good growth. Just keep them as cold as possible. For inst...

Re: Seeds done

Liz, I like that PC x EDF....sounds yummy. I've never grown either...but the hardiness and disease resistance of PC combined with awesome fragrance and huge double blossoms?.... I can't wait, vicariously, for the first bud to unfurl.

What temp are your seeds at? Are they sown or in baggies?

Re: Before the Genes Jumped, 1930s

Warren, It was very interesting for me to see composite seedling pics like that. Your post inspired me to look up the three roses mentioned on HMF. Do you have a pic of Wendy herself? I didn't see anything that I thought would be her amongst the "Wendy"s on HMF. I think I see some painted petals on ...

Thanks for the picture, Tom. I love those fat leaves.

Re: First Seedling to bloom this winter....

Nice seedling, Rob! I'm jealous...I just have bare dirt in my seedling flats. Kim, that lilac is very interesting. Do you know if it was a cross or open pollinated? Do you think Blue Skies has the potential to produce everbloomers? It's also interesting that your seedling thrived in standing water, ...

After testing out the keyword search function, I'd like to encourage everyone to add lots of keywords, including for instance the parents of any seedling. That way we could type in "Baffin"' for instance, and find pictures of roses with William Baffin as a parent. I'm not sure if it is technically p...
