Maybe this is a dumb question, but how do you hybridize with a rose like this? When they have so many petals, how do you pollinate it and how do you collect the pollen?

how many do with all roses, remove all the petals just before it opens, snip off stamens (to collect pollen).

Has anyone ever noted six sepals on R. roxburghii plena? Francis E. Lester did. (see the 1942 reference). Checking old long-gone blooms, my photos today show just five sepals (I note the 2003 reference which quotes five.)

the pictures shown here show both a double rose and chestnuts. i thought that only the single variety made chestnuts. could someone enlighten me? chris in ct.

chrisj, I doubt what you heard is true. The double form of Rosa roxburghii was introduced to Europe around 1823, 85 years before the single form was found in the wild and documented by E. H. Wilson. It acquired the name "Chestnut Rose" long before that.

It does take a several years to mature enough to bloom, as the comments here mention.
