Question about the comment at the bottom of the Description page. It says, "not consistently hardy below zone 7 in the USA." Does "below" mean a lower number such as zone 5 or does it mean south of zone 7? If the latter, isn't that an error?

It means Zones 4-6, which are colder. We will change the wording to "lower than"

Perhaps "colder than"? Thanks for the fast reply!!

Re: Rosa bracteata, the Macartney Rose: Why is the date given as 1765 for Lord Macartney's discovery (actually it was George Staunton's discovery) when he did not see the rose until 1793 on his mission to China?

Are there any bracteata x rugosa crosses out there? I would be really fascinated to see what could come of that. It would be like a monster race of roses that would invade the planet! Seriously though, I would love to develop a new rose class. Kordesii is similar, but imagine a rose that would not only thrive everywhere, it would be dangerously invasive. Then use that as a parent with hybrid teas to make roses an easy garden plant again. Roses that could sucker around and end up being found in the wild 100 years from now, like harrisonii. Also, I love the potential of having new remontancy genes from species that haven't been used yet. Maybe, when 5 or more kinds of remontant genetic lines synergize, there could be a rose that would put on the kind of display a once-bloomer does, but do it all year around. 100+ flowers open at once, on a daily basis.

Yes there are... Did You check the offspring in the lineage tab?

I found pink surprise and bought that. Does anyone have experience with bracteata hybridizing? I know Ralph Moore did a lot with miniatures. I want to create bracteata roses that are more hardy than the species or its more well known hybrids alba odorata and mermaid. I bet the trick will be using an improved fertility parent like Muriel.

I've created many bracteata derivatives using Moore, Viraraghavan, and Harkness genetics. Most are not listed at HMF.

The species itself is not easy to work with.

I have seen your amazing diversity of seedlings, but never noticed the bracteata crosses. Do you still have any of them, and can I entice you with some Iris or daylilies, or even a stapeliad or orchid? [I'm nearly 100 percent certain that I couldn't possibly have a rose that you don't already have.] hehe. :)

Maybe a Stapelia. ;-)

Private message me. I have lots to share.

Would anyone be willing to send their extra suckers of this rose to me? I'm in zone 6b, so it will never become a problem for me, and I know some of you are dying to get rid of it! One person's trash is another person's treasure. :)

[Yes, I did put my name down in the cuttings section, Admin. hehe :) ]
