Growing Roses since 2001
Active Hybridizer for Brugmansia, and an aspiring Hybridizer for Roses.
Own and Operate a 5 acre Sustainable Farm School in Hawaii.
Currently grow approx 115 cultivars and wild forms. I've downsized collection
from 160, now concentrating on no-spray and own root growing. Interest in
OGR's for preservation and future use in hybrids.
My focus is (in order of importance):
-Fragrance Quality & Developing New fragrance.
-Ability to flourish with own roots.
-Ability to maintain vigor and health without spraying for fungus.
-Remontancy and perpetual blooming for the tropics.
-Resistance to Black Spot, Rust and Mildew in humid environments.
