This is an important breeder in the Moore stable of roses and is responsible for bringing yellow into many modern roses breeding lines, miniature and otherwise. I think this is a plant that should be revisited by hybridizers in the pursuit of new types of shrubs with yellow coloring.

Do you have a plant of this, Andrew?

No, I do not Paul. For as many as I do have, seems like I am missing that many. I wish TSU would figure out what was going on, and release some of his plants again. If it wasn't for Nor East, I would have never been able to buy what I did of his roses.It was next to impossible to get his roses into Florida.Just the brief period that Nor East had his roses was about the whole window of time I had.
(I would do it all again, but this time around, I would buy at least doubles of everything they had, have the misting system already set up. July was not the best time to ship 225 minis. Hindsight is 20/20.)

St. Pete isn't the best place for minis. Some have thrived. !-72-1 is great here. Rountuit grows like a weed here ..... doesn't get enough bloom.

Kim Rupert and yourself, have taught me more than any book has about his minis. I guess I missed the mini craze by about 40 years. I would have loved to have had the pleasure of meeting Ralph just once. I'll never have the impact he did with minis, but I love passing on the genetics.

Who knows, what will happen, if I make it to his age. Hopefully I have another 40-50 years of playing around with them. I have one more month or so, until my annual inspection. I'm hoping to be able to add California to places I can export to.

I've delayed making an "official" opening of my nursery until the economy stables out a little. The main advantage I have is having the time to do it if I want. For me, the idea has never been to make a killing on minis. I know I can not compete with the major players, even with 10 acres in PA.

Mainly, just to try to keep the line of genetics going at any cost. Some of the minis I will never work with , others, I see potential in exploring. It has been a battle to keep them going here. But, it has been worth every moment and every penny in my opinion.
