I live in St. Paul, Minnesota and am breeding roses adapted to the Northern climate. I've been using hardy species roses with modern shrub and mini roses to try to generate roses with greater disease resistance, winter hardiness, and diversity of flower color. I started breeding roses in 1984 and have loved and continued breeding roses every year since. It is rewarding and exciting to see new seedlings develop and work towards breeding goals. Many surprises pop up along the way as well making it even more fun.
