This is not Airbrush. This is a red rose.

You are right, I have Airbrush posted to. It was just a mistake when I uploaded them. Thank you :) . Have a nice day.

What is the red rose please Lilia? I can move it to its correct page.

I hope this illustrates that those roses that don't usually set hips can do so under certain conditions. In February this year I noticed a bloom of 'White Maman Cochet' that had been half-eaten away by some pest, partly exposing a group of normal looking pistils. I removed the rest of the petals and I took the opportunity to pollinate it using 'Papa Gontier' because it was fresh on hand. Of course I had no idea if it had already been pollinated by an insect before I got to it. The hip readily swelled and then actually split but continued to develop on the bush. Today (20th May 2018) I noticed that the hip had been nibbled by some pest so, even though it didn't appear ripe, I cut it off to avoid losing it all together. There were many seeds inside, some very small but I'll plant them all to see what comes up. This is the only hip I've ever seen on my 'White Maman Cochet'.

Divide them into three, and
1. put one third in a paper towel with a few drops of water, and then into a plastic-wrap bundle in the crisper for four weeks.
2. plant one third now in a tray of seed raising mix
3. I don't know. Any suggestions from anybody?

I've just put them in a snap-lock bag in the fridge for now. I don't really know if tea rose seeds benefit from cold treatment. Does anyone else know? Does this only benefit European roses? I figure it can't hurt anyway. I'll plant half of them next weekend in any case.

I didn't know where to put this, so I thought I'd just add it on here. It's a reference to a yellow sport of 'White Maman Cochet' but I don't know if it was ever introduced into commerce.

From 'Rosen-Zeitung' 1910, page 13

"Gelber Maman Cochet - Sport
Herr Pfarrexpositus Kromer besitzt seit 2-3 Jahren einen schön gelben Sport der weissen Maman Cochet. Die mir Ende November gesandten Blumen waren scwefelgelb. P.L."

My translation: (and not exactly sure how 'Pfarrexpositus' should translate, but it's a Church position).

Yellow Maman Cochet - Sport
Pastor Kromer has in his possession for the last 2-3 years a beautiful yellow sport of 'White Maman Cochet'. Those flowers sent to me at the end of November were sulphur-yellow.

I will respond further in 'Pastor Kromer's Yellow Sport of White Maman Cochet'.

Just a follow-up on the hip from my 'White Maman Cochet' - today I noticed the first seedling had germinated from the seeds I'd planted. At least it shows that the seeds are viable, especially since they were all rather small. I hope it survives and I get something worthwhile keeping.

Good luck!

Thanks, I'm hoping it might be somewhat mildew-resistant especially if the pollen parent is 'Papa Gontier', so it might have a good chance to survive its first few weeks.

Hello everyone! I live in the tropical country~the Philippines. I have been loving roses for 5 yrs now. 3 yrs ago, i planted BARE ROOT ROSES shipped from another City but also in the Philippines. It was a SUCCESS. In my intention to multiply, i tried growing from its cuttings. I tried all the growing from Rose cuttings procedures that google and you tube has to offer but to no avail. then a time came when i was compelled to uproot and transfer it in another location as the lot was needed for vegetable production. it all died.
Now i am looking for another Rose variety that could thrive in the tropics and ships to my country. Could Anyone help me? I have tried some sites but they have minimum orders required and i could not afford such multitude as i am just a hobbyist and my requirement is not for commercial production.

I don't know if anyone in Australia ships to the Phillipines.
A rose-grower who lives near Mackay, which is tropical, does very well with Excellenz von Schubert and roses bred by Riethmuller in Australia, so Lambertianas, if you can get hold of them, may do well for you. He also speaks highly of Tea roses, the China Archduke Charles, and Clair Matin.
if you can find rose cuttings, you might like to try the ziplock bag method of propagating. All of the above roses should strike that way. Some HTs can be more difficult.

This is another rose I saw in the Barbara May Garden at Rookwood cemetery in Sydney. Again I assume it is a foundling that has been renamed. It looks to be a Tea, not a large flower but the bud is striking for its orange colour splashed with a bit of pink. The open flower seemed to have more pink. It seemed to be semi-double and wasn't a very large bush.
Unfortunately the second photo here isn't a great shot and probably also over-emphasises the pink.
I have messaged the lady who should know its study name, but in the meantime are there any guesses about a possible identification from others? And it isn't 'Comtesse du Cayla' as I'm familiar with that rose.

Mrs Arthur Robert Waddell was called a tea for a while in the early days of HRIA. I can't see the stem very clearly.

Quite possibly. Unfortunately It wasn't flowering much and I don't have more good photos. From memory the blooms nodded. I definitely will be going back sometime to take more photos of this and that red Tea.
