Re: Rooted Cuttings Failure Question?

Yes it works - changed soil and laced with mosquito-cide. 16days after, RDxS pushing out healthy leafs - not the ones that wilt, and Alika racing to put out first leaves before last leaf drops. ... gertie still cooling her heels but no rot and leaf still healthy (and good roots). Gnats cooled off as...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

Hi Stefan That’s another good suggestion - don’t recall planting one in that spot ... but that means pretty well nothing as recycle growing spots quite often and old forgotten roses presumed departed will pop up. . Have one in the back north gardens thats on it last legs ... though can’t say if cold...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

Hi Margit, Good potential lead to chase, leaves more like "Na". Got to agree about the head scratching lack of any strong spino influence on the leaves (and still hardy so far). A little stronger on the canes but not overwhelming. I am use to "fern - like" spino leaves, and extremely thorny (bristly...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

Thanks David for suggestions to pursue, I agree it sure looks like spino (but off in minor ways). My Kakawa is about 10 feet away, and a Butterball (produces a copious quantity of hips), Hunter (ditto hips), Therese and Alba Semi-Plena surround it. I exclude Chinook Sunrise as it is too new. Must co...

Re: Scandinavian Import ID Challenge - Needle in Haystack Quest?

Contacted best potential commercial source of rose. It is not one of theirs.

Open season now for pursuing claiming the study rose as "OP germination - moi garden origins" until shot down by "Horbilis. facts". Will dig down in spring to see if grafted.

Re: Rosa beggeriana nigrescens

Also note R. Beggeriana also likes slightly alkaline soil - have tonnes of that, but been working on making it more of an ericaceous soil. May back pedal where they’re going to be planted.

Re: Rosa beggeriana nigrescens

Hi Stefan, yes there is a non-Loubert bloom photo, but likely has commercial protection. It looks the same color, maybe ever so slightly darker, but we know the variation different conditions cause. The unopened bud form is similar to Polstjärnan to my eyes - but a lot of my other CDN heritage roses...

Rosa beggeriana nigrescens

I have an opportunity to acquire this rose. I am speculating - does not feel like much of leap - this rose is related to R beggeriana parent of Polstjärnan. It has color that is appealing - l call it a red single - for using as another candidate for getting the bone hardy non- white red rambler. HMF...

l was referring to a whimsical guess as to where rather large potted Winnipeg Parks roses were raised that were being offered for sale. Largest l have seen and filling up what l guessed to be 10gallon pot or maybe larger (tub), wasn't 5 gallon. Longest canes near 3 feet (between 50 tp 60$ CDN). Neve...

Forgot, in my case yes no identified 'Polstjarnan' disease issues in my garden. Though the main plant of 2 (other in shade) was cut to nearly ground after 15 plus years or growth and for the first time due to extensive die back showing in spring - a lot of hardy roses for some reason had extensive d...

Hmmm ... may be way down south heavy bottoms refinery wax good idea as according to HMF input good down to US zone 2 and up to zone 8 ... definitely not 3a Canadian ... tried it and a half dozen or so of his MF crosses and as well waxy imports. Nordlander 1 and 2 marginal.
