Hi Kim. :) I have always been very fascinated with your crosses when I'm browsing this site. I wondered if you still grow fedtschenkoana, or if you maybe still have some hybrids of it laying around somewhere. :) I really want to play with this species and try to recreate the Autumn Damask with some improvements like thicker canes, fewer thorns and better repeat. I would be very happy to send you some Irises. I'm certain you have every rose I could send you. lol.

Hi Jason, yes sir, I still have Fedtschenkoana, though it's just barely hanging on. I need to repot it as it's almost out of soil, so I don't know if there are any suckers available. And, yes, I do have some hybrids of it as well as pollen collected from them. These are here now...

Something like two Pink Petticoat X Fedtschenkoana and several others.

I like all three, but those first two are really nice. I love lavender colors especially, so the idea of a IHT lila banks cross is really exciting. It would be so neat to cross lavender HTs to several species and then recombine them all to create a rampant lavender. What can I offer you for those? It would be great to cross and recombine them. I want the scented leaves and colorful foliage traits the most from this species. And its propensity for creating moss roses. I have a very lofty set of goals.

Kim sent me cuttings of 'R. fedtschenkoana' and its offspring 'DLFED 3', which I've been growing in containers for the last few years. Both are ready to bust out of their current 22" resin barrels, and will be planted at my "cemetery project" either this Autumn or next year. Kim messaged me about your interest, and I'll check tomorrow to see if either has a sucker I can easily remove. I don't want to remove them from their pots as they're currently blooming. If I can't find something I can get now, I'll try rooting cuttings after the first flush. 'R. fedtschenkoana' had just one success out of four or five cuttings, but if I remember correctly, all of 'DLFED 3' took.

If you're impatient, you may wish to check Long Ago Roses for 'DLFED 3', since I sent an extra there a few years ago.

I can wait. :) I'm so excited for just the offer. I love moss roses, and I definitely want to be working on that heavily. I would be very happy to send you some Iris, or perhaps a rose you might find interesting. I get send you tons of rugosa stuff. I'm going to be crossing rugosas and similar species with lots of lavenders, mauves, purples, and magentas. Hearts, Moons, Stars, Clovers and Baloons! Sorry, I just had to. Yeah, I'm going to be playing around with bracteata and roxburghii, so I'll have neat things to send you. You'll have to be very patient for that, as it will be a couple years. But I'll have tons of rugosa rubra and alba seedlings this Summer.

Thank you, and keep me in mind should you have any OGRs to spare, as well as any named old perennials. I'm starting a heritage rose garden at a 50-acre park-like 19th Century cemetery. Eventually, everything appropriate from my garden will be either propagated for there, or moved there directly. Anything I can get donated means I'm able to direct money toward other things for there.

Christopher, would bearded iris be sufficiently hardy there? I have Crimson King, an 1894 Victorian repeat flowering bearded iris, which was shared with me from the Historic Sacramento Cemetery. It does flower several times a year and it spreads well.

You're welcome to some if you want it. It's the only iris I grow.

Reply #10 of 10 posted 3 days ago by AquaEyes
Kim, yes, 'Crimson King' is on my list. Just as I made that huge list of date-appropriate roses, I've been making lists of other plants to use, as well as bookmarking nurseries that carry heirloom/historic cultivars.

I can provide several historic diploid (smaller flowered and species-like) Iris. If you want a really low maintenance and exotic flower, you would love Daturas. They have huge trumpet shaped flowers that open up at night and smell like lemons and jasmine. Rugosas are also prime territory for old fashioned charm. I might have some perrenial scented geraniums. They have blue flowers and the foliage smells pungeantly like patchouli. Nicotiana sylvestris and alata are great self sowing annuals. Oh, and opium poppies. Peony flowered, Danish Flags, Hungarian Blue. I can hook you up if you can give me some time. :)

Jason, thank you! Those layers won't be used for at least another year, so now rush at all. This is my first year starting it, and will be about finding areas and prepping them with cardboard and mulch. I'll message you with my email.

Hi Kim;
Some of your roses are listed as "cuttings available." Is that still the case? Thanks so much...it appears that you have bred some beautiful stock.
Regards,
Matt

Hi Kim;
I had written in December, but it has been quite busy, and I'm sorry for the delay in getting back in touch. I would be interested in hardwood cuttings, if available, from any of these: 1-72-1DLFED3; 0-47-19Poo; Ice Cube; Probable Amhiploid Self Seeding. Thanks for considering! If available, I could trade or cover postage.

Thanks again for considering.

Matt

Hi Matt, no problem. "Life" definitely gets in the way sometimes. Of those requested, I only still have 0-47-19Poo (Anne Belovich). What is currently growing out back is listed on my garden listing here. https://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=3.22025&tab=2

If it's Fedtschenkoana hybrids which interest you, there are several which aren't listed on Help Me Find. There are two, if I recall correctly, from the Pink Petticoat X Fedtschenkoana, plus those remaining on the garden listing above. And three ramblers from 0-47-19DLFED X Tom Thumb, one of which is rather tiny with double pink flowers and shorter growth. It's rather "ferny". The other two are larger ramblers. One with single, red-orange flowers in large clusters and a double pink in large clusters. I have self seeds from all three if either cuttings or seeds from them are of interest. Thanks! Kim

Thank you so much for your kindness towards a fellow hobbyist. Yes, I'd be interested in seeds or hardwood cuttings. I am comfortable working with both, but not with softwood cuttings, which I don't have a good misting/etc. setup for.

If available, I'd be interested in cuttings from Anne Belovich, IHTXLB Fed, and any of the 0-47-19DLFED x Tom Thumb (self seeds or cuttings should work). I'm also very partial to multiflora- and wichurana-type ramblers, and have been seeking opportunities to grow more of them. If not too much, I would be interested in cuttings from any of: Pink Clouds, De la Grifferaie, IXL, and 42-03-02.

Obviously that's a number of requests, and I don't want to impose too much on your generosity. If only some of this is available, then that's certainly very appreciated too. Thanks again. If anything I grow is of interest as a trade, let me know...and if not, please let me know what to cover for shipping and how to get that to you.

My address is Matthew Lustig, 795 Stone Jug Road, Biglerville, PA 17307.

Thanks again!
Matt

Hi Matt, I will sort through the pots out back and send you a list of what there is as well as a list of available seeds so you may choose what seems most interesting to you. I would enjoy reading what you grow, thank you! Is your garden listing here on Help Me Find? I wasn't able to find it through your name, screen name nor by the state. Thanks! Kim

Kim--Thanks for looking into these. I'll wait to hear back from you.

I've been involved with growing fruit and nut trees for years, most especially chestnuts, which I've grown and worked at hybridizing. But working with roses has been a more recent interest, mostly within the last two or three years. So my stock is more limited, and you are correct about me not having a garden listing on the HMF website. I do have a "cuttings available" page, but it's not too comprehensive or really up-to-date.

If it all survived the winter, I should currently have R. wichuriana 'Basye', Red Dorothy Perkins, Gardenia, normal Dorothy Perkins, TAMU 90-1C, Belinda's Dream, Playboy, Tiffany, Camelot, Red Masterpiece, Dr. Huey, Moser House Shed Rose, R. setigera, a bunch of F2 R. wichuriana x polyantha hybrids from Dr. Zlesak, 2A91 (an unlisted setigera hybrid), and Therese Bugnet. And a family heirloom rose that my wife believes may be Queen Elizabeth. But a lot of those are small, and some are even still in my 'hardwood cuttings bed' awaiting transplant out this March or April. I also have large plants (definitely suitable for cuttings) of Zephirine Drouhin, Iceberg, and a rose that's probably R. palustris...not a particularly pretty clone, but near and dear to my wife and I for sentimental reasons.

Anyhow, some of that is too young and small, but if you're interested in cuttings from the larger stuff, let me know. And thanks for letting me know if I can get any of the types I mentioned from you. Please let me know how to cover postage, if you are able to send cuttings/seeds.

Thanks,
Matt

Thanks, Matt. I've been cleaning out the dead and tons of Bermuda grass from that area. We're now in a rainy period, the first real one of the season, which is nearly over. I will get back to you as soon as it dries out enough to get into the yard, but I expect there are some suckers as well as cuttings to send. Thanks!

Hi. I see you don't take private messages.

I was hoping you would be interested telling me a little bit about a project I want to start.

You see, I want to create a rose that combines the foliage fragrance of eglanteria/rubiginosa with the incense scent of prinula, and the piney scents of fedtschenkoana, and ideally I want to get some good moss that brings out all of those qualities.

My starting pointing point will be Quatre Saisons Blanc Mosseux x Applejack. I am hoping to get most of the fedt. genes and rubiginosa genes with moss right there.

However, I have been told that foetida has fragrant foliage, as do beggeriana, agrestis, and some HPs and hybrid chinas. Supposedly R. carolina has mossy buds, and so does multiflora?

I would love to hear your thoughts because I have been told that you could probably write a textbook on this subject.

I also hear that you grow fedtschenkoana?

My dream would be a thornless moss rose with the above characteristics and a modern HT bloom in a deep lavender color. That seems so similar to some of the things you are working on. I saw you made a cross of International Herald Tribune x Oila Banks x fedtschenkoana. That is exactly the sort of thing I am very excited about.

You can email me directly at JasonSims1984@Gmail.com if you would like, or respond here. :)

Thank you!

Hi Jason, Thank you! I'm sorry. My account is set to accept private messages from all HMF members. I received one just this morning. I will email you privately as that is significantly easier to track and keep up with. Thanks! Kim

I noticed recently that you had posted a photo of "Art Nouveau". I am considering bidding on this rose at auction. Could you please share with me its frequency of bloom? Merci bien

Hi, it's a fully modern floribunda which flowers as constantly as any other floribunda should be expected to where you grow them. I have found it to be completely disease resistant in both the San Fernando Valley, north of Los Angeles and here in Santa Barbara County, Santa Maria, nine miles from the Pacific Ocean. Of course, how it may perform where you are is unknown, but it has been extremely healthy, usually in flower and very fertile for me in those two climates. (10a and 9a, California). Good luck! I think you may find it a fun, interesting and pretty rose!

Most helpful...thank you Kim! I live one block from the ocean in Del Mar, (just north of San Diego) thereby incurring coastal dampness.
Do you think this darling little rose will enjoy the beach???

You're welcome! Actual salt from the ocean, probably not, but if other roses grow well in your conditions, this should have as good a chance as any.
