Jim Delahanty and I urged Ralph Moore to introduce this rose forever. Every time we visited, the plant was spectacular. Toward the end of the nursery's run, the one plant he had of it was extemely yellow as if would die. He finally listened and took many cuttings from it, which he was thrilled to tell us rooted "right down the line", meaning even though the rose was terribly malnourished, every cutting rooted. They bloomed as five inch plants in their four inch pots with the most scrumptous flowers, beautiful enough to rival any English rose! One of the charateristics this and a few of his other Bracteata hybrids possess which I love is the fresh peach scent! An absolutely gorgeous rose in plant, foliage and flower. Jim Delahanty suggested the name, recounting it was the first poem he memorized and it just fit the rose.

Does Out of the Night set hips at all?

I haven't had 'Out of the Night' for very long. It supposedly sets hips but I haven't seen any as yet. I had some early hips that aborted late in the season.

Thanks for your input Robert. Sorry to hear that your hips aborted.

I've had four plants for two summers now. No hips yet.

Thanks for the input Cass. 'Out of the Night' sounds like it could be a genetic dead end which is too bad as it's a lovely thing indeed.

Have either of you had any luck trying it as a pollen parent? Thanks!
Reply #6 of 6 posted 8 FEB 10 by Robert Neil Rippetoe
It almost never produces anthers. This said I have a seedling out of it now as pollen parent. It's occasionally possible to spy a few anthers here and there.

This just goes to prove most things are possible if one is observant and persistent.

This rose has wads of brown mush rather than blooms most of the time. It balls terribly in my yard. It's only a couple of years old, but if it doesn't improve soon, it's gone.

9/1/2009 This rose was sent to the compost pile today. It just didn't perform well in my yard. It's beautiful when it does well, but just doesn't work for me.

New to the garden this year as a small 2 inch cutting from The Uncommon Rose. Transferred into a 1 gallon pot and it immediately took off. Within 4 weeks moved it into the garden as a 12" x 12" plant with 4 sprays of 3 buds. The flowers take forever to open.....but they are incredible and last a long time. I grow 6 different Hybrid Bracteatas and I have to say a common characteristic of them all is the freedom of bloom. Nearly perpetual (well to this point they have been perpetual but I'm assuming a lull some time) in bloom......while the roses are open there seems to always be new buds ready to open and smaller ones getting ready to replace them in a few weeks. Very vigorous and floriferous. I spray so don't know its disease resistance.
