For Johannes

Johannes

This is the photo or the canes today. Can't figure out how to send photo by app mail - gone next week to look again for R. lokilani in the wild on the wrong island - but right for me until the jet stream moves way north. Ignore rose to left with red hips ... Carlos Red

Re: Hardy, Everblooming Climbers

Good time for this thread to have arrived to get the hardy climber conversation and ideas stewing in the pot. Interesting to see what comes through in spring (high hopes for 6910). Should be okay (moved to prairie bred hardy), assuming a low cool down since October was beneficial. February 2019 4th ...

Re: Hardy, Everblooming Climbers

Various lengths of time in 4A Canadian: 'Stanwell Perpetual' in garden since 2005 but on last legs and not done much in 5 to 6 years. Struggles with up to 60 to 70% spring pruning - poor performance is probably exacerbated by tree roots and somewhat shady location. Therefore mine is probably not aty...

Re: Hardy, Everblooming Climbers

An excellent thread for educating and path suggestions for increasing the chances of garden worthy hardy climbers and ramblers ... especially timely for planning and motivation when Calgary supposedly had it’s “coldest” February in 83 years ... glad cashed in my recycles and soon get to chose betwee...

Re: Hardy, Everblooming Climbers

Stefan, got the lineage close but no cigar, I imported "Ran" through a friend from a reputable Europe nursery a couple years back. Limited info and no photos on HMF to share, stated as pink, shrub and a R. majalis (R. cinn.) × Rosa helenae 'Hybrida'. Credited to an Arne Lundstad - Norway before 1972...

Re: Hardy, Everblooming Climbers

Stefan out of the scores of Austins l tried, the only semi- hardy to survive without protection in both the south and north plots is Gertrude Jekyll . In the realm of speculation l am convinced it has either briar or what Applejack has in it to make them last so long. This rose is another target for...

Re: Hardy, Everblooming Climbers

Lets see if l can do this without errors and apologies while l chill with a good cheap Cuban robusto in the coolish garage.

Re: Hardy, Everblooming Climbers

Good cautions Stephan to temper exuberant urges to push outside the envelop to get that zone 3 / 4 hardy well mannered non-white climber / rambler et al gene pool bigger ... lessens the "fail" letdown if one goes in with eyes wide open. The experiment with R. p. Scandens (only available) resulted fr...

Re: Hardy, Everblooming Climbers

Can provide one data point of what value I am not sure, as I don't know the provenience of a labelled as R. paulustris scandens I planted in the summer of 2015 in the back north gardens ... btw it is not swampy in my garden. It has made it through 4 Calgary winters (by hugging the ground?) ... it ha...

Re: Hardy, Everblooming Climbers

Good info and advice. Like the half / half rule off thumb - my kind of garden science and start for my hybridizing efforts which are likely going to be the shotgun approach until I settle down to economies of time. I grew American Pillar #84 (Pickering) in the early days and was surprised it lasted ...

Re: Pollen from Rosa xanthina spontanea

Sorry ... errat(a)um? should read rose's leaves "ARE pimpinellifolia" / spinosissima at spring new growth points. Don't have record of ordering a yellow R. spinosissima, or Scot, and have dismissed it as the Canary Bird (extinct in garden) I obtained from Vancouver Island sources.

Re: Pollen from Rosa xanthina spontanea

Sorry Johannes, it is looking slim it is the single "holotype" R. xanthina. I put the parka on, and found it has regular spaced bristles making up about 10-20 % of an arching cane's linear length. Though on the HMF, an odd photo or two photo there are occasional bristles showing. Mine sample's brist...

Re: Pollen from Rosa xanthina spontanea

I have the five petal Pickering version plant in the garden since 2007. I can send a picture of the rose in May, just before it begins to bloom, and you can decide if it is the right rose and want the pollen. Calgary based.

Re: 'Chinook Sunrise' parentage

Oscar Peterson lasted two winters in my Zone 4A Canadian prairie (foothills) garden in a sheltered south facing garden position. Not inclined to test re-plant, but only because not a fan of white. One of two Canadian Shields passed on after one winter in a south side sheltered position, other still ...

Probably more tangerines versus mandarins.
