Bought this as a small cutting. It went through a major move within 2 years of being planted and it is doing splendidly in zone 5. Truly a trooper requiring little care. Can't say enough nice things about this rose!

I'm very sure Mr. Moore would have been quite pleased to have read your praise. Thank you. Stripes and Rugosas were two of his fascinations (two of several hundred! LOL!) He sought for a very long time to combine the two and was so happy when this seedling flowered and performed as well as it did for him and those with whom he shared it for testing. I'm happy you grow and enjoy it! Thank you for sharing.

I am a "lazy" gardener in Michigan so I really appreciate carefree cold hardy roses. I mostly have Bucks and Explorers but I love this Moore baby!

Does anyone know if this rose is heat tolerant? Thanks.

I cannot specifically tell you that this rose is heat tolerant, but Mr. Moore's nursery was located in Visalia in the San Joaquin Valley of central California. If a rose made it through the testing stage there, it had to be heat tolerant.

Just a caveat -- the dry heat of Visalia and the sauna-like heat of Texas don't always have the same effect on roses.

Believe it or not - after I posted my question, I located this rose in my neighborhood in front of a house that was foreclosed on. Both it and Iceberg were planted in part-shade, and had not received any fertilizer or supplemental water for months. It is July and hot and humid - both roses were doing o.k. and even blooming! Amazing.....

Well, Iceberg is a trooper, but I would have thought it very susceptible to blackspot in your climate. Nice to know it's coping with the weather and no care! Moore's Striped Rugosa should be as tough as a boot once established, so good to know it's showing its mettle.

Vigorous plant with very nice flowers that come in regular flushes. I never got it to set hips and the pollen was plentiful, but I never really got much out of it. I finally had to remove it because it really wants to spread - at least in this environment. It was a good 6 X 7 growing in a 10 gallon pot by the time I removed it. It would be a great plant if you can plant it in the ground and let it sprawl. No pests to speak of - just a little late season black spot.

The "seedling" used as the seed parent for Moore's Striped Rugosa is called "9 stripe" at Sequoia Nursery and its lineage is as follows:

Golden Angel X "44 stripe" (Dortmund X [Fairy Moss X {Little Darling X Ferdinand Pichard}])

The pollen parent of "9 stripe" is known as "44 stripe" and "44 stripe" is a sister seedling to Rose Gilardi.

Feel free to contact me if this requires further clarification. Its a complex lineage :-)

Thank you for this very interesting information on the seed parent.
