New from Monrovia, the Nitty Gritty Series: "Available in five colors, Nitty Gritty roses require very little maintenance in exchange for their continual blooms. With a 3-foot height and a width of 4 feet, they can function as flowering groundcovers. All of the roses in this series are disease resis...

Re: Petite Knock Out Rose - AVOID

Do I understand all of that to mean that after all the tens of millions they threw at that "project", it resulted in pretty much nothing? Not a blue rose nor a rose which should help produce other odd colors through breeding? What a bummer! I'm sure they were delighted that the transgenes aren't he...

More of a joke but Someone cross it with Applause:) According to their environmental risk assessment, the transgenes in 'Applause' are not heritable through cross-pollination: "In in situ hybridization analysis transgene transcripts were only detected in the epidermal cells in the petals of the tra...

Re: Petite Knock Out Rose - AVOID

It would seem that the probability of an amateur like us generating a variety that is not only commercially viable but lucrative enough to be on Star's or Meilland's radar and their genetically testing that variety to see if Petite Knockout is in the background, and then suing to take it off the ma...

Re: 'Banshee' for hybridizing...

Here's 'Climbing American Beauty' x 'Banshee' (2018 cross, 2019 seedling). The goal was fragrance, as both parents are very fragrant. Should be pink, once-blooming, multiple petals.

Re: hardiest reblooming diploid?

I just looked at the HMF entry for 'Banshee', and didn't find any published reference for the ploidy determination, only a name--does anyone know the individual from Texas A&M who performed it, or the provenance of the plant that was tested? It concerns me that there isn't better documentation, bec...

Re: Roses with relatively better Japanese beetle tolerance

My observations for the past few years have been that my pink roses are devoured by beetles far more frequently than my yellow roses. In particular, they are very fond of Rosa palustris . So much so that at the height of the beetle season, I use a wide, shallow container of soapy water to knock them...

That's unfortunate to hear. I've been waiting for a reply from them about 'Dashiell Codd'. Does anyone know of another nursery that carries it?

Re: Rosa palustris sport

Interesting! Good catch! Thanks Kim! It's my understanding that multiple petals is a dominant trait, so I saved what little pollen there was to use on palustris this season to hopefully generate a few "pure" palustris plants with doubled flowers. "A dominant gene located on LG32 controls single ver...

Rosa palustris sport

This one blossom showed up late last season on Rosa palustris. 14 petals instead of 5, no receptacle, an unusually long stem, and a strange cleft in the stigma pad. Ragged form, but exciting potential!
