Precious Dream has sharp thorns. Someone posted a pic. of its thorns in the Rose Forum.

You are growing one of Moore's Hybrie Bracteatas in Chicago?

I had no idea they were hardy past Zone 7. Do you leave them outside all winter?

I don't grow it. Burlington has it for $7.50 but I took it off from my buy-list when I found it has thorns. Roses hardy to 6b are OK here if I plant them deep, water them in the winter, and plant them next to the house with a mound of dirt on top.

Does Precious Dream set hips at all?

'Precious Dream' sets fertile hips in some seasons. I have grown out several OP seedlings.

Ok! One of the Hybrid Bracteata.sets hips and germinates. Thank you Robert. Have you had anything decent show up in your seedlings from Precious Dream?

Most the the OP precious Dream seedlings lacked vigor. They were mostly cream colored. A couple were orange but were weak. I didn't keep any. I'd probably use Precious Dream for pollen keeping in mind that there is likely a propensity for blackspot in some of the offspring, being descendants of 'Orangeade'.

Cream and orange would be desirable for me but I'm sorry to hear that seedlings lacked vigor. I'll take your advice and use PD as a pollen parent but will have to use something very disease resistant as the pod parent. Thanks again Robert.

I used PD as pollen parent this season on a limited basis. I did get hip set. Sometimes the blossoms don't produce much pollen as they are too double.
