Re: Yellow roses

Thanks David, NowI know I'm not imagining this. In 2014, I bought three plants each of Rise N Shine, Bees Knees, and Calpoly. I was able to get lots of viable pollen and harvested lots of viable seeds. I am now evaluating some of these 2014 seedlings, some of the are impressive. When I look at the 2...

Re: Yellow roses

Hi everyone, It's been along time since I've posted on this subject. Have anyone noticed when working with mins, that sometimes though the plant is covered with blooms, the primordial hips are underdeveloped on some flowers, these flowers often are undersized and don't have pollen. I'm noticing the ...

Re: How long do we wait for first bloom?

Simon, I think sometimes the blooming can be influenced by whether the rose is in a pot or in the ground. I had Chloris in a pots for years. It didn't die, but it never thrived. I would be lucky to get one bloom per year. Last spring I took the chance and planted it in a protected area. This year it...

Re: How long do we wait for first bloom?

David Z. Told me more the ten years ago that when I cross Explorer roses into modern roses they sometimes take a few
years to bloom. I waited ten years for a modern x near species cross to bloom. It blooms steady now for an extended
Period of time. I'm using it's pollen now.

Re: Few of the more mature seedlings

Hello Lizlee, beautiful seedlings. Thanks for posting, nice to see more people working on roses on this side of the border. I'm surprised to see you get so double a seedling out of Morden Sunrise. All the seedlings I've gotten from MS have all been singles or semi-doubles. Maybe I'm crossing with th...

Re: Chloris

....a few comments on this rose would be deeply appreciated. With a zone 3b hardiness and thornlessness. I though
Chloris may offer a path to winter hardy thornless yellow roses.

Re: Rosa rugosa 'Salmon Pink'?

Hi Karl,
A search for "Pink Salmon" on HMF netted no results. Is this rose listed under another name?
Can you please give a better description and post a few pictures?
Thank you.

Re: Crazy winter weather!

Hi guys, anyone have pics of the "stem crud" mentioned in this tread? I saw some mossy growth on a few
of my roses last year. When I pulled it off, it was only superficial- as far as I can see.
What would be the biological name for this growth?

Re: Low-cost Trellis Ideas

Kim is right. I find that when climbing vines fall down when the trellis rots or blows over because of high winds,its often difficult to get then up and looking like they looked previously. I've fenced in my entire yard by looking on website like "Kijiji" and buying used galvanized steel post and ch...

Re: Low-cost Trellis Ideas

Hi Jonathan, You didn't say if you have to take down your climbing roses for the winter as we on the Canadian Prairies do. I use two 2x4 cedar lumber buried in the ground. I use 2x2 inch squire galvanized stucco wire fastened to the cedar post with chicken wire galvanized staples. I don't have a lot...

I just had a thought, I acquire "Jamie" from Robin Dening of Brentwood Bay Nersery last spring.
As HMF listing shows, "Jamie" is a sport of Therese Bugnet.

Re: New roses you are using this year?

I've tried a few David Austin roses before with out stellar success, but this year I'm hoping to try something old again.
I plan to give Golden Celibration another look. My stratify is to cross GC with some of my Hazeldean seedlings.
