Maybe this is a dumb question, but how do you hybridize with a rose like this? When they have so many petals, how do you pollinate it and how do you collect the pollen?

how many do with all roses, remove all the petals just before it opens, snip off stamens (to collect pollen).

This rose grew form a packet of Thompson and Morgan Rosa multiflora 'Garden Party' seed. Of the 15 or so plants I raised all the others were very pale pink or white singles and semi-doubles. This plant I gave to a friend has flowered a cherry red, if anything darker than the photograph shows. In all other respects it is identical to its siblings.

I love that :). I want to hybridize everything with rugosa. Lol. They're the only roses that bloom properly and grow well aside from knockouts. Hehe. I'm tacky like that.

Is this rose cold hardy?
Reply #1 of 4 posted 20 JAN by Rupert, Kim L.
You will probably get more helpful information if you revise your question to indicate to what zone or temperatures you want to know if it will withstand. I've grown it in Zones 9b and 10a and it was perfectly cold hardy in those conditions, so to answer your question as stated, yes, it is completely cold hardy. How cold are you wishing to grow it under?

Supposedly I'm zone 7, but winters can be eratic. We occasiobally get a zone 5 type winter here and there.

I do know how to read the information on this page, but it's not always accurate.

I'd consider myself zone 6b.

Thank you, that should help get you more useful information.

Hi, Jason. It's cold hardy to at least z7a which is where I am.

Does this rose have any kind of foliage fragrance?
Reply #1 of 5 posted 4 FEB by Patricia Routley
I smelt my 'Hebe's Lip' mature and old foliage yesterday in late (dry) summer. Not a whiff of any smell.

Thank you :).

I would love to combine eglanteria leaf scent with damask moss into a modern rose.

eglanteria foilage fragrance seems to mostly (or only) pass from the pod parent

Thank you :)

I have always thought that this rose may descended from Rosa arvensis, the way the buds show red just as they begin to open but open pure white is very similar to this rose.
