Thanks Kim. Too bad. The parentage seems really interesting.

Re: Miss Bloomsalot

I realize this is an old post, but did anyone ever have any luck with Miss Bloomsalot?

Re: Recommendations for Thomas Affleck

Thanks Stefan. I grew Basye's Blueberry nearly twenty years ago (in Alabama) and it did very well for me. Carefree Beauty did reasonably well for me here in Mississippi, so I hoped their offspring might be useful.

Re: Recommendations for Thomas Affleck

Rob,

Did you ever have any success with Thomas Affleck? I've considered this one several times but there's not a lot of information on it. Thanks.

Re: Identify rose

My first thought was that it looks like the old Brownell floribunda Nearly Wild.

Re: Morden Series for health

It may be location, but the only seeds I ever got from David's Ark OP were from the pollen of another arkansana hybrid. It stubbornly refused pollen from everything else I tried on it, and I finally lost it a year or two ago. The pollen parent was a cross of Carefree Beauty and an arkansana clone th...

Where in the country are you located? Performance can vary greatly depending on the part of the country you're in.

Re: Arkansana Hybrid Seeds Available

Rob,

If not single it's very nearly so. As best I remember it normally has 6-7 petals, but I don't have any pictures to check for sure. I'll try to remember to check next spring. Good luck with them!

Arkansana Hybrid Seeds Available

I have some arkansana hybrid seeds available if anyone wants to try them. These are OP seeds from (Suntan Beauty X Abraham Darby) X R. arkansana. This rose shares its arkansana parent's reluctance to accept foreign pollen, so these are probably self-pollinated. I collected a number of OP seeds last ...

Re: 2017 Pollen available

All this wonderful pollen and the only thing I have in full bloom at the moment is a species hybrid that I've never gotten a viable seedling from. Sigh.

Very nice! Do the Spins bloom very well for you in GA? I've tried one of two in MS and they didn't want to bloom at all.

Re: Bella Nitida x R. woodsii 'Kimberly'

Very nice! Obviously the rugosa must be coming from Bella Nitida. What's the parentage of Bella Nitida? It's not on HMF, and I haven't seen it elsewhere.

Re: Baby pics

I really like the first bloom on this seedling. It is a rare case of a cross (Midnight Blue x Plum Frost) giving me exactly what I hoped for. It is deep purple and has an intense old rose fragrance. It already has five more buds that will open after this one, so I think it's going to be a good bloom...
