Also from High Country Roses. I think this might be the first year HCR has offered 'Aicha'.

Not fully hardy in southern Finland. Gets more winterkill than the spinosissima hybrids Stanwell perpetual and Klaus Groth in my garden. Susceptible to blackspot. Sets op hips and seeds germinate relatively easily, but very poor success rate in hand pollination.

Is there any explanation as to why pollinating this rose is so hard? I'm new to rose hybridizing, so maybe I'm missing something. And how is it the other way around, using Aicha as the pollen parent? I think it's an exciting rose; I found one specimen in my city, growing 2 meters high and wide, and flourishing, without any human care as far as I could notice.

It's certainly a beautiful and tough rose, except perhaps for the blackspot susceptibility. I don't know why Aicha is reluctant to accept pollen from other roses. I have the impression that species roses (and apparently hybrids close to species) often are reluctant to accept pollen from modern hybrids, and work better as pollen parent. Someone else may know better. I haven't used Aicha as pollen parent extensively, but I thinks it's fertile.
