Re: R. gallica Splendens x Above and Beyond's first bloom

.. correction Morden 6910 (intro year 1969 l think so that should help remembering first two digits) by (HF)Bert Harp. I have a couple of his efforts l don’t gripe about, especially Prairie Dawn which gives copious pink blooms (some weak second pseudo rebloom, tall stature for back of one of the gar...

Re: R. gallica Splendens x Above and Beyond's first bloom

Thanks Hannu, I have not used Ross Rambler# 1 though l grow it. Should really give it a go. I am still focused on trying to start from Isabelle Skinner because l want R. Laxa Retz. in it. l have not acquired a R. Laxa Retz.. Hence trying IS. Going to fix the lack RlR in garden inventory real soon. I...

Re: R. gallica Splendens x Above and Beyond's first bloom

Definitely a good trialing ground for hardy ... my goal has been to try and “hybridizes” a zone 3 Canadian rambler or climber (red) - so my interest in your success with gallica and R. laxa R.. background in parent. Though you are probably aware (lsabelle Skinner) apparently has it and does well in ...

Re: R. gallica Splendens x Above and Beyond's first bloom

Excellent result and pleasing to the eye. Also thanks for info on parents as see Dr Z used R. Laxa in A&B. R. Splendens (is) one of few gallicas that can survive in my garden (foothills - Canadian Rockies) and blooming now. If your cross and A & B live an environment across the lake from aiti’s old ...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

This unknown is putting out a consistent bloom form now that is getting right up to full double. Bloom 5 ... next to see if it shoots for quartered. What a stunner white it is to my tastes ... never been a fan of white, but will make an exception ... must be modern hybrid ... no fragrance in late ev...

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Realized oldest one tangled up in Mannings Blush ... this photo does a better justice to Dening’s “Jamie” find of an OP of Therese Bugnet. Fence 3 ft, rose is 2 feet or half way to a Lotusland 4 footer.

“Jamie” in my garden today and (intro by Denning) believed to be to be an an OP of Therese Bugnet. Found in BBN on Vancouver, and is a an example that Therese is not yet finished in market ... l bought them. Since 2013 have planted 3 in my garden at front of the border all close together because it ...

Re: Video tour including Metis and Bella Nitida

In jest sort of, it took 5 years (own root), and many die downs and bunny attacks (labelled R. nitida). It bloomed for the first time ... sort of counts. Going to cross with my super-hardy Agatha (doesn't set hips), if not already too late ... may not return for 5 more. 12 inches high.

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Txs, be sure to replant your of MF cross as a good start with large bloom potential. My MF and TB’s form a good part of the taller structures in my garden. Yes they can have a bad winter. After years in the garden l had three MF 6-8 footers smoke it down to the ground 2 winters back, but they are re...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

Bloom #2 Blush absent. Believe bloom would make double designation. Bloom, though close, is “more” double to my eyes than my Beauty of Leafland(s) - a Canadian Erskine white, very hardy spino hybrid. Leaflets at that this stage also do not appear close enough for a horseshoes ID win. But best conten...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

The points you make on the rose habit and characters are excellent. But l am out of my depth in id’ing. I did peruse the young “Helenae” hybrids for a reference point as they are closer to a “lancet” form l see in the leaves - but quite dark green. Did have an anxiety attack it might be JP Connell b...

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

Sounds very familiar to another journey in a cold zone ... takes awhile but keep it fun ... its possible ... some got fortunate and met somebody who knew what grew here relative to my tastes that could do as a sub ... now not looked at as a sub ... first hurdle was getting over once bloomers.

Re: pictures Martin Frobisher Seedling

For my needs l believe there is rose gardening, and then there is estate architectural landscaping with some token roses, or 401 Knockouts at 25$-30$ a pop. My favourite landscape gardening, is in the middle with a mix of cottage and grand - and just a lot of roses. One pole can be ordered cottage g...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

Hi Hjortur Thanks for the info on Lovisa - guess l am tapped based on original import list - thought another contender might be Savel - but its definitely looks blush pink. Skotta and George are close to each so l am going to compare once he blooms and again with my Canadian Wasagaming. The mystery ...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

Bloom #1 today ... real interesting potential showing for down the road if yellow hue stays as a “blush” and bloom stays full ... and not imaging disease free, and hardy after three winters in garden. Go Nordica go :-)

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

Add possessive to name ... as it sinks in it becomes clear a lot of similarities so close in cane, cane color, thorn and leaf characteristics ... now to find a RH that has those, plus white semi - double, slightly/tinged yellow at bloom start ... and hardy, any source of more photos of Jellinek’s (s...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

Just remembered a red one, checked against leaves, cane, and thorn colour of my 5 yr old Bayse Purple - color and thorns similar but no cigar ... less and more thorn like (or prickle?) like on BYP and leaves similar, but broader at this age stage of comparison ... flower of course not even close. Go...
