Re: Lifespan of frozen pollen

Thanks for the replies! I will try to use some this season, at least perhaps some that will provide options that seem useful. I'll try to keep track what the results are, although I will perhaps use a little extra of this pollens I have plenty left. Perhaps those I need to use more sparingly would g...

Re: thoughts on Wasagaming seeds?

Update: a lot of germinations from the batch of floating seeds. I am really glad to see such good germination from Wasagaming. Also, all of the seeds that sunk have germinated also. Too early to compare yet. But I will do as they grow. I realize the most likely explanation is that I mixed up or misl...

Lifespan of frozen pollen

Has anyone tested how long their frozen pollen is viable for? I have been freezing pollen for use the next season, so I will be able to make the crosses I wish to make. This has worked really well. Right now I have pollen from last season, awaiting a new pollination season. I still, however, have fo...

Re: I. D. of hybrid spin?

Thanks for that! It was at the back end, in the left corner, in Christianson's nursery.
Wish I had known about the antique rose farm. If we cross over the mountains that way we will have to take a look.

Re: I. D. of hybrid spin?

Thanks for the input! Very interesting! Would this account for the fragrance? It was a fairly strong fragrance? I am assuming this would be fairly hardy? I am unfamiliar with the series but will look it up. Perhaps this would account for this cross seeming to be more agreeable with the seed parents ...

thoughts on Wasagaming seeds?

None of the early crosses I tried on Wasagaming succeeded. There were a few flowers later as a second round that I pollinated and labeled ( I thought) with pollen from Agnes and a seedling from Martine Frobisher. I figured they may have a better chance of being received. I was glad to see hips formi...

Re: I. D. of hybrid spin?

I should have added that it was fragrant, which was a huge reason that she liked it and I chose to use its pollen.

I. D. of hybrid spin?

I was wondering if anyone recognizes this rose? It was growing in a garden we visited at a local nursery. At the back end there were various old roses (gallica, damask), then hybrid rugosas, then a hybrid spin. ( Kakwa) and this rose was right beside it, so I figured it was a hybrid spin, which it l...

Re: Alternate source for repeat bloom

I know that Above and Beyond has Virginiana and Laxa (not Arkansas, as you mentioned Karl) but it caused me to wonder what it would be like to cross it with a Hybrid Perpetual. I realize it isn't avoiding china (due to lemon fluff). I also realize it would probably not be repeat blooming? But I wond...

Re: germinating seedling

Aloha hawaii was seed parent. Time will tell, but one of three pollens: Wasagaming, A Shropshire Lad, or Lilian Austin. There were a cluster of blooms and I used either one of the English Roses pollen along with Wasagaming pollen hoping to make it more receptive. Hopefully I am correct and will be a...

germinating seedling

I noticed this while I was checking the seedlings for moisture. At first I thought that I had accidentally put two germinated seeds in the same place (which is a possibility). However, I don't have that many germinations right now, so I am working very slowly, placing each germinated seed in place w...

Re: Rooted Cuttings Failure Question?

I didn't realize Gertie was so difficult to root. Is it possible to try pegging for some of your plants? I am glad to hear your cuttings seem to be making it!

Re: Can Somebody Explain 'Replicative Fading'?

Would this (or how should this) translate into reproduction of our own seedlings that we wish to have more copies for testing or breeding with? Are there steps to take starting with the first plant and those thereafter that we can take to avoid this? Or is this usually amplified over time by many co...

Re: rugosa x glauca

Thanks! One of the reasons I wanted to grow them out, at least for a bit, was just to see the variation in one batch of seeds. I'll see how vigorous they are and then how much room I can give them. They already need repotted, roots are vigorous anyway. I'm not sure their next pots will be big enough...

rugosa x glauca

The seedlins are still very small, so we'll see what happens with color as they grow; but there is clear color difference in seedlings. I'm curious to see if purple and rugose can combine on foliage to some degree. About half the seeds have germinated so far.

Re: Seedling/genetics question

What a beautiful rose Ruglauca is! I noticed it may be a self of the species cross. Interesting. Now I wonder, what if (perhaps after selfing one of these) you cross two seedlings: like Ruglauca with another cross like these. Would using a seedling like Ruglauca work with one these work to get prefe...

I have seeds germinated from the Rugosa I asked about recently, looks like David Thompson. (Obviously much like Jen's Mini, from pictures on HMF) Anyway, the rose growing across the path from it was Rosa Glauca (rubrifolia, however you spell that). One of the seedlings is all purple, stems,leaves an...
