Re: 'Chinook Sunrise' parentage

Oscar Peterson lasted two winters in my Zone 4A Canadian prairie (foothills) garden in a sheltered south facing garden position. Not inclined to test re-plant, but only because not a fan of white. One of two Canadian Shields passed on after one winter in a south side sheltered position, other still ...

Re: 'Chinook Sunrise' parentage

Probably more tangerines versus mandarins. Believe rule of thumb (from the Lazy Gardener's blog) is add 1 to US zones to get Canadian zone approximation. ... in the spirit of info transfer, not heard of prairie growers claiming good "luck" with Agathe, Agatha Incarnata and Empress Josephine (? tag l...

Re: experience with any of these in breeding (cold hardy reds & yellows)???

Sorry answered my own question, Olds College I call a full bloom form based on habit in my garden, while Chinook Sunrise is spec'd as semi double ... Olds College (nice college just up the road from me) is definitely semi hardy in 3a-4a.

Re: David Austin

I was fortunate to see his firm’s Chelsea display this past May ... left this zone 3 maybe 4a stunned. Gertrude Jekyll is the only rose that still “survives” in my garden (2). Been going for 10 to 12 years - sometimes hit 4 to 5 feet. I will post some pics of his 2018 Chelsea display as l believe it...

Re: Polstjarnan (expanded)

Good luck as making a slightly more garden worthy cold zone clmber or rambler (Z2 3) that hits 12 feet plus is something that will be ground breaking ... for now the small white blooms will have to suffice in my garden ... as well as R. Paulii

Re: 2018 Chelsea - New Harkness This Morning Rose (hulthemia?) Intro Shown at Chelsea

Thanks for the link Phil ... I tried about 2 or 3 that Pickering (defunct now) distributed a few years back, unfortunately they never came out of dormancy - never even one wintered by myself ... think they were having propagation problems at the time and I retreated from them as fast as I tried them...

Back home today, this is a "Nikon" photo I took at Chelsea at the Harkness "booth" of "The Morning Rose" taken Thursday ("Harzephyr") ... my photos are in the 8Mb range off the Nikon so kind of a pain to fit forum vs the cell phone camera photos - willing to learn how to reduce

Re: World Federation Rose Societies conference - Copenhagen

Hi Margit, I thought I would go last year but the Chelsea Flower show won out this year due to family commitments. Be interesting to see any British commercialized hybridizer efforts ... I hope.

Your Finnish references (and correct/alternate names) and mozilla's translator have been very useful today for filling in the blanks for number of received Finnish roses for my datasheet
