Re: Rebloomers genes

Txs Joe, some of the tone is “natural deep clear” yellow, but it may benefit from being in a spot where it misses the direct morning and afternoon sun (shade trees). Receives late afternoon sun. I don't plan to use the pollen or cross it this year.

Re: Ploidy of Isabella Skinner (Victorian Memory).

Peter, my IS has not. So far crosses self terminate showing yellowing of the hip “stem” and failed hip. But not stopping on trying until acquire a R. Laxa R.. Agatha another super - hardy (in my garden) has the same issue for me. Spino hardies rampant hippers.

... maybe Garret Lisi et al will solve all of it one day with further work on fixing the problems of “”An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything” .” I got lost when l assumed E8 explained everything.

Re: hardiest reblooming diploid?

Hi Stephan, Really PO'd, as it is history, pulled Ran yesterday after waiting to see if a "new growth" would emerge - unfortunately never got a full hardiness shake (made it through one winter on second). I was my own worst enemy and under-designed the first "Snowy Aussie Rabbit" fence making it too...

Re: Free Rose El Ariana - Prefer not to "compost"

The potted are no longer available - replanted all three within a shelter of Spinos - if they make
it cuttings can be arranged down the road 2-3 years. Too rare here to chance losing this known occurrence of this Geschwind by the risk of late planting if no takers by fall.

Re: Rosa Helenae Hybrida Off Spring Success in NAmerican Cold Zones?es?

Had a rose named Patricia Macoun (assuming right rose was in garden - source tended to have a 20-30% id error) but donated it as a mother plant to facilitate wider access to others. May have to buy a replacement plant if it makes a market place appearance. Read it had returned from Europe to Canada/...

Re: Free Rose El Ariana - Prefer not to "compost"

No takers so dug out today and no visible suckers and lots of lower cane budding. DI only needed the right hardy genes to be a good looking “rambler” here. Really developed a strong candelabra cane system under ground as moved away, l assume, from being too close to sheltering wall. Potted three tha...
