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

From a single nursery, but not a Finnish one. l am going back to the original list and see if description l got from web searches was transferred incorrectly by me for one ... pretty sure back in 17 l used the FRS and HMF sites. Either way the leaf shape texture and color is not common in my garden,...

Re: hardiest reblooming diploid?

Thanks for the experience info and ploidy. I have only seen late season PM (believe Calgary low pressure) and leaf miner, this year, or something else - though surprised if latter rose dependent.

Forgot critical photo of 1/4 bloom ... pale yellow hue likely to disappear.

Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

I have a rose "I" labelled as "Ruskela" ... it is not in my opinion ... not a vendor error as shovel, dirt and sliced labels flying around 3 years ago in remake and move. Checked HMF and Finnish Rose Society photos against import list of contenders mainly using white bloom as primary criteria, and s...

Re: hardiest reblooming diploid?

Joe more out of curiosity, pitfall avoidance, and because l think you used it, how have your crosses done using Red Dawn x Suzanne ?

Mine is 5 years but is so cane hardy l got to get serious with it. What l find as off spring are not cane hardy in my garden.

Can’t find a ploidy ?

Re: Confirm my Bettys?

Minor errata (or ums) found. Went into the spino slasher jungle protecting the El Arianas recovery (only gated access route for short legs) to get better than birds-eye view observational data for vendor Betty Bland. It has thorns, not positioned in relation order, and less 1% of cane length, and ju...

Confirm my Bettys?

Have used HMF for both to try confirm my labels and pretty sure correct. But lack info on cane character and bud colour to nail it. Vendor’s Skinner Betty Bland is new and not bloomed, but canes completely thornless. The labelled years ago Betty Will has thorns at base and is a Erskine cross with Be...

Re: Handling cold-hardiness

Agree completely Stefan ... seen both cases and latter too many times to count ... the former with some examples of the “ super “ hardies for the first time this year - that l chalk up to cane age as some are nearly, or over, a decade old and some 15 years. Agathas no problems in north garden, (plan...

Re: Handling cold-hardiness

Might help to agree on defining hardy to a zone before one gets into arguing between 2nd and 3rd order parameter influences other than cold will kill an unprotected tea. Crown hardy or partially cane hardy does not work for me - reminds of too many disappointments - cane hardy to bloom does work mos...

Re: Handling cold-hardiness

Live in equivalent of USDA zone2-3, CDN 3-4a. In the early years planted scores of teas, hybrid musks, HP, Damasks, bourbons, portlands, HTs, gallicas centifolia austins. etc etc. Protected by covering with 42 bales of compressed peat moss each fall. Some bent down pegged and covered. Some survived ...

Re: Video tour including Metis and Bella Nitida

Well done and interesting pursuit of hardy garden worthy roses. Keep it going. l grow examples of Metis (phonetically spelled as “may-tee” and is the way l pronounce it) but find significant die back ... keep it because the buds are unusually large and deep red making it attractive as it blooms. Nit...

Re: Rebloomers genes

Txs Joe, some of the tone is “natural deep clear” yellow, but it may benefit from being in a spot where it misses the direct morning and afternoon sun (shade trees). Receives late afternoon sun. I don't plan to use the pollen or cross it this year.

Re: Ploidy of Isabella Skinner (Victorian Memory).

Peter, my IS has not. So far crosses self terminate showing yellowing of the hip “stem” and failed hip. But not stopping on trying until acquire a R. Laxa R.. Agatha another super - hardy (in my garden) has the same issue for me. Spino hardies rampant hippers.

... maybe Garret Lisi et al will solve all of it one day with further work on fixing the problems of “”An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything” .” I got lost when l assumed E8 explained everything.

... as lan McShane’s “BBC Lovejoy antiques divy” character” would say “Oh its the real thing alright” ... thanks for taking the time to fill in the ploidy facts and provenance trail info with only a minor jump in origins
