Hello:
I am still trying to get cuttings of Grandmere Jenny. Would members of the Coastal Rose Society be willing to sell cuttings to me instead of only selling their cuttings at their auction? I need five cuttings of Grandmere Jenny and will pay $17.00 for each cutting and also pay for shipping. Thank you. Margaret Lamb

Margaret, we advised you a good while back that this type of comment is better suited as a Private Message, rather than a public Comment.

No we do not sell cuttings. Also, I tried to root a Grandmere Jenny a few months ago, unsuccessfully. It seems to be a hard one to get to take from a cutting, and I have a whole system of misting and lights and when needed, underheat. So I would not recommend what you are trying to do here as it appears you are likely to spend the money and not get your rose.

Also, for those of you that follow California Coastal Rose Society's annual auction of rare roses, our list of roses we will be selling at this year's auction (October 28, 2018) has just been posted at www.ccrsauction.com.

Could you not just graft it?

I could. But I only had the couple of cuttings that I tried to root from a person who grows it in the desert, and he had asked me to try to start a new plant for him, as his efforts had also been unsuccessful, and that was a sentimental favorite of his. His plant was on last legs when I took what I thought it could spare. And I am usually better at rooting than grafting, which is a whole different skill set.

I see. It was just a thought because it seemed a difficult rose to root and budding might have been easier.

Who knows where I can get a start of californica? I have seen the nurseries listed, but they are out of the country. I can't import it. There has to be somebody who grows this species in the country. Or has some seeds to trade :)

I will add it to the list, Jason. I have the R. Californica they selected to grow in the Historic Sacramento Cemetery in Sacramento, Ca. There are suckers exiting the bottom of the container and it needs cleaning up, anyway.

I was going to say there are many variations on rosa californica. I have one also that is probably not the one the good folks in Sacto "selected." What I have is one I got originally from the Native plants nursery on the outskirts of San Juan Capistrano called Tree of Life Nursery. They also have Rosa minutifolia, which you would probably also like. However, since you don't say where you are, I guess there are two options here -- come get a piece of mine in San Diego, or drive on out Highway 74 in San Juan Capistrano if that is closer. Or get Kim's.

ps Forestfarms.com in Oregon is another good place to get most species roses, but I don't see californica on their list at the moment. It might be too common for them.

I'm actually currently in San Diego! I would love to come and get a piece of some minutifolia and/or some californica! Email me and I'll give you my cell phone number :).

Well then, I should probably also invite you to the San Diego Rose Society meeting tomorrow night, Monday, June 18, at which our topic will be hybridizing roses. Come one, come all, 7 pm at Casa Del Prado, room 101, in Balboa Park. If you haven't been there before, it's across the street from the museum of natural history and next door to the junior theater bldg.

No way! That's fantastic! I'm so excited! I have been obsessively reading about roses for weeks now. And now you say you have the rose I am looking for and you have it miraculously here in the place I am visiting next to the rose garden that I love to visit and I get to attend a rose group meeting tommorow night! Pinch me. I will be there.

Californica's foliage smells so nice! I have seen it at Walter Anderson nursery but it was in bad shape and it did not have fragrant foliage and someone bought it. I also saw it in someone's garden. It had beautiful lilac flowers. I was mesmerized. But Kathy gave me a sucker from her yard. I really like because it has very fragrant foliage. It has a very woodsy piney smell to it. I am so happy to have it. I feel like I have something no one else has.

I would suggest you get R. californica 'First Dawn'. It is a selection of the species by Suncrest Nurseries. They don't sell direct to the public but many nurseries can get their plants.

The two selections of the species I grow are First Dawn and Los Berros. First Dawn is the better one by far IMHO. It blooms prolifically and repeatedly while Los Berros only lightly blooms with almost no repeat (it is also a water hog). First Dawn blooms in huge sprays and is extremely fragrant. The foliage has a mild to moderate peppery scent. Sets abundant hips with plenty of seeds. Not very thorny (Los Berros is loaded with thorns and prickles). Both are shade tolerant. First Dawn will climb with support. It is blooming now. I'm not sure there are any hips at present as birds like them.

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden grows R. californica from different parts of the state. I've seen all their other selections. They also grow First Dawn and Los Berros where I bought mine. First Dawn is my favorite but my second favorite one is a plant from San Diego County. It is very nice. The RSABG nursery is closed for the summer. However, earlier this year they did have available in the nursery R. californica grown from their own stock. Unfortunately I didn't note which one.

I forgot to mention that Annie's Annuals grows a R. californica with good rebloom. Checking Annie's tonight finds that it is not in production. You could write and ask about it though. Here is the page for that plant: http://www.anniesannuals.com/plants/view/?id=2876

This rose has been reclassified as a mini-flora now by the ARS.

Kathy, I cannot find this rose at all in the Modern Roses database, either under Sharon's Delight or MORsharon?

Reply #2 of 3 posted 10 days ago by Kathy Strong's Del Cerro Garden
Should be there under both. If it's not, I'll enquire. But FYI, ARS is coming out with a newly revamped database in early July.
