Re: Rose Traditions in Finland - old Peter Joy Article

That Finnish rose that Riku mentioned is R. pimpinellifolia 'Plena' (Midsummer rose,Finnish name is Juhannusruusu) On the website of the Finnish Rose Society you can find great images of that rose https://ruususeura.ruususeura.fi/a-suomi/a-pimpinellifoliat/plena.html There is a lot of midsummer rose...

Re: i.d. this rugosa hybrid???

David Thompson is sterile. Years ago I tried to hybridize it both ways with any success. It never set hips.

Here, helenae hybrids do not survive over the winter. I can only dream of them.

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

Hi, Riku If the long term experience of something is bad, then you should leave it out of the plans. Then it is worth continuing on a line that has had positive results. You can sometimes try something new for the sake of interest and if others have good experiences with it. Madeline's Choice looks ...

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

Thank you too. You’re going to have a lot of work to do to plant new roses, but that’s fun. I hope they thrive well and hopefully they are winter hardy and suitable for your crossbreeding work. Saving old rose varieties from extinction is a cultural act. The KESKAS (hardy and beautiful plants) proje...

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

Many roses adapted to cold winters do not like varying temperatures. They come to life too early and they freeze and dry out. Lilian Gibson is a triploid and it doesn’t make hips, but the pollen is fertile. LG is involved in the inheritance of the Campfire rose. I don't have a Betty Bland, although ...

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

Thank you for the information. That Olds College rose is also available here in Finland. I also had Prairie Peace, which I lost because of the difficult last winter. Temperatures varied widely. There was no shelter from the snow and in February it was warm + 5-8 degrees Celsius and it rained. This w...

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

John Davis is problematic here too. It will never become a big bush. That’s why I use it as a pollinator as well as the John Cabot rose. Finnish rose breeding project have one winter-hardy and beautiful John Davis offspring called Ilo (Joy, Kahila, Kangaspunta). Ilo means joy. It's John Davis x Kemp...

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

You're welcome.

One more tip. Pirkko Kahila from the Finnish rose breeding project said that John Davis x Splendens will give interesting offspring already in the F1 generation.

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

I thought its genes could have potential. The original RR grows to 20 feet high and is winter hardy in Zone 2a. I also have RR1. I planted it last fall. I have a 25 year old glauca hybrid Nova. It has RR genes inherited and has grown to almost 12 feet in height. Agatha is winter hardy because it is ...

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

That’s a good goal Riku, because there are hardly any really winter-hardy except Pohjantähti (Polestar). I know Isabella Skinner rose. Unfortunately, it is not available in Europe. Have you used the Ross Rambler rose in your crossings? True, it is too early because the seedling is still so small, bu...

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

Thanks. Possibly they would survive. I live about 25 km south of the city of Oulu (64 ° 48.5′N, 025 ° 25′E) in a place called Liminka. The land is an old seabed. Winters here are cold and long. Spring is cold and summers are often cool and short. I have found that many of the USDA zone 2-2b and some...

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

I think so too. Surprisingly, the rose bloom so soon after germination (14 months), although the Splendens is a once bloomer.

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

In July 2018, I pollinated Rosa Gallica Splendens with Above and Beyond pollen. The seed germinated in May 2019. 14 months after germination, the rose produced the first flower. The flower is pink, fully double and it has an old rosette shape. Probably the rose is quite hardy as Splendens is very wi...

Re: Lac Majeau x John Cabot

This offspring surprised me. It raised four buds. This is the first one opened. Bloom has nice shape and color. I look forward to seeing how it thrives here in northern Finland (zone 2, Finnish zone 5, 64°48.5′N, 025°25′E, at the same latitude as Fairbanks Alaska).

Lac Majeau x John Cabot

Hi
Last summer I did few crossings. This juvenile bloom is from the cross Lac Majeau x John Cabot.
