Hi, I purchased this rose in Canada. I think it would be great for breeding. The tag said "northern Canadian rose". I thought it was Therese Bugnet but it is not. It looks to have some rugosa in it. The leaves are similar to Therese but the stems are green and the shape is altogether different. It is very hardy with only tip damage in my zone 3b/4. The flower is a clear pink and the fragrance is rich crisp rose. It is disease free and suckers are few and close to the trunk. It has the best repeat of any rose I grow. It is never without bloom and it is the first rose to flower in spring and blooms until heavy frost. No hips but very thorny. I find it is my favorite roses for my zone, a real bloom machine.

Are red stamens common? This seedling only has five petals but the stamens are red. Is this something special?

Not uncommon but always welcome.

Thank you Robert, think I'll keep it and see how it develops. It is my first seedling with red stamens.

Absolutely. I love red stamens. I find stamens that go dark very unappealing.

I know this isn't a rose question but I could use the advise. I love foxgloves and grew more of them than usual this year. They looked great when they were in full bloom. Now that it's mid July they are done and all the blooms are fading except for a few stragglers on the tops. Many of them are falling over. I would like to clear them out to clean up the garden for summer blooming perennials that are coming on and the next flush of roses. However I would like to save the seeds for reseeding/winter sowing. The problem is that the seeds are not even close to ready and it seems like that process is taking a long time. I really want to collect the seeds but don't want to have foxglove mummies in the garden all summer. Any advice would be appreciated.
