For Gary Wootton.
You have entered your seeding 'Our Kiera' and noted:
"Parentage for this rose is White Spray by Dr Bruce Chapman".
We have three White Sprays, and I think you might mean the rose that Dr. Bruce Chapman bred and for a good while was known as (Kardinal x White Spray), but now known as 'Dr. Bruce Chapman'.
It was never specified which 'White Spray' he used in his parentage. We have three named as such:

White Spray (shrub, Lens, 1980)
White Spray (unknown, McGredy 1990)
White Spray ® (floribunda, LeGrice, 1968)

So....is the parentage for 'Our Kiera' (Dr. Bruce Chapman x unknown)?
..........
Later edit - on the other hand you may mean pollen or seed from the same White Spray bush that Bruce Chapman grew and used in his breeding. If so, does any other Australian know which one that was?

The hip I used was from the same White Spray bush (or a cutting from that same bush) that Bruce Chapman grew and used in his breeding. I shall check if the owners (Glynis and Doug Haine) of the bush that I received the hip from can help with the parentage question.

Great. Thank you Gary. That will clear up the parentage of two roses with the one question.

Watch out for friends who are compulsive deadheaders... Fortunately since it's close to the ground, it may be relatively safe.

I'll be keeping a close eye on this one, Margaret. I'm more concerned with possums and anything else that nibbles, to be honest.

After such a long dry spell, it rained fairly heavily overnight, and so not wanting to risk the whole thing rotting, I felt I had no choice but to remove all the petals. It was rather a pity really, but at least it revealed an otherwise normal Maman Cochet bloom.

I took a few photos. There were a few stamens on the flower but it didn't look as if any of the pollen sacs had opened

Based on advice from various Oz rose-breeders, I remove all petals but one (that one helps to find the flower later) and the stamens from flowers I pollinate, so there's pretty well nothing left to attract bees. I put a coloured twist-tie around the stem to help find the hip later on. Warren M also cuts one sepal across to show himself that he has pollinated the flower.
Anticipating your question: no, I haven't bred anything worth releasing. There are enough mediocre roses out there already!
