Great shots!

Has Honora Hit grown well for you? Do you have any recent photos, and does this rose set hips?

I have a green rose I grew from a seed. It's an amazing color, but the blooms are so laden with petals that they don't open well. I want to use Honora Hit as a seed or pollen parent so i can reduce the number of petals, and maybe help the quality of bloom.

Dear Jeffrey,
In our region as the outdoor rose Honora Hit proves unsatisfactorily. (Much more well the rose as a indoor plant behaves.) Flower petals extremely gentle and easily spoil from a rain. After grafting the rose showed quite satisfactory winter hardiness (traditionally in our district in the winter of a rose cover with material from polypropylene fiber). However the size bushes practically the same, as at an own-root plant.
I didn't observe hips on a rose. In our district usually don't leave a branch with hips as hip grow ripe rather seldom – even, for example, at hand pollination of the floribunda roses budded on a stems. It happens only during seasons to rather warm weather.
Petals at a rose open badly, so if it is possible, probable to use pollen better.
I will try to look next summer that happens to flowers after blossoming, and to photograph result.
All kind.

Thank-you for your reply!

I suspected that the petals might spoil in the rain. Other photos showed a red blush and water spots that I don't find attractive. I'll give the rose a try here in my San Francisco garden. Our winters are very mild, so i don't have a hardiness problem.

Beautiful photo. .
Is this a popular "pimpinellifolia 'plena'" rose? This is one of my favorite roses.
