The Victorian State Rose Garden at Werribee grow this rose. Ask them for a cutting or two. If you grow any rose by seed, it may not be exactly the same as the parent rose. (A different pollen parent may produce something entirely different.). Let me know of you have problems.

Himalayan musk under on other name in Australia checked the website don't grow it so might be under another name.

I believe they have it listed under 'Paul's Himalayan Musk Rambler’

I think Werribee has restrictions on cuttings going out. There is a Heritage Roses member in SA who grows it, or what is known by that name in Aus. If you send me a private message I can give you her contact details.

There are are no descendants listed for this plant.
Are there really no descendants of Pauls Himalayan Musk known?
It germinates very easily and just now I have about 50 young seedlings of this year (2013)

Is your rose pale pink, or white? I am wondering if you have R. brunonni, the seeds of which come up like grass

Hi Patricia, thanks for your reply.
There is not much colour in my plant. Flowers are white to faint pink, however they are very double and brunonii flowers are not double.
But your expression "the seeds of which come up like grass" characterizes this plant quite well.
Actually I overlooked the earlier posting from Wernersen from Berlin having seedlings of PHM as well.
Seedsetting and germination here in Germany seems to be not a rare event.

As mentioned in these posts it might be that PHMs offspring is simply not that interesting and not worth talking about.

So I am going to keep the seedlings but without special care. Survival of the fittest.

I've heard before of a German, who sowed seeds of the Paul's Himalayan Musk Rambler and those germinated like weeds, but they were all lookalikes of the original rose (selflings?)
Maybe You need some more generations, to get something different after pollinating the successive generations Yourselves with the pollen of the plants of YOUR choice.
Good luck and enjoy the process!

Warren Millington is using this rose in his breeding

Sadly this rose is terribly prone to mildew in dry years.

After several years of very healthy growth my two PHM plants showed quite havy mildew infestation last year and this year as well. Plants grow thrue it well, but do not look nice and flowers are impaired partly.
I the beginning I thought PHM was completly resistant, so I am bit disapointed now, but PHM is still a great cultivar and a wonder to look at as it covers gardenhuts and half houses in clouds of flowers.

My neighbour a few houses further in the street has this rose too.
In our garden the rose can get as high as it wants and is high up into the sky and healthy. But in the neighbours garden, space is limited to a rose-arch (the rest is pruned off)... and almost no air circulation => Lots of mildew and even black-spot as well.

Yes microclimatic conditions do play a role certainly. One is partly unter a roof but starts growing over the roof in about 6m hight, the other grows over a small gardenhut. The one on the house is more affected.
The other part is probably inoculum, I am suspecting the susceptible American Pillar to produce enough mildew spores to infestate even the rather tolerant PHM.

I am growing PHM on a south facing balcony pillar in Berlin Germany in rather poor sandy soil. In its 3rd year it is about 3,5 m and growing vigorously.
Not knowing that PHM does not set hips generally i used it last year as mother for crosspollination. Surprisingly the cross pollinated flowers set hips that contained singel to few viable seeds.
Currently I am growing 6 hybrid seeldings.
It seems to me PHM might be a good rose for the lazy breeder as it does not need emasculation since it does not produce selfed hips.

I have to make correction to this message:
This year my PHM made lots of hips presumably from selfings. I have no idea why it did not last year. This year I did not mark my crossings assuming that only the crossed flowers will set hips, so I lost my crossings in the big amount of selfed hips.

PhM seeds seem to grow easily with me. I got six seedlings last year that have grown to almost 1,5m in one year. this year i have harvested lots of hips and sown the cleaned seeds directly in sowing dishes in a cold glashouse. By mid december I got a few, by end of december quite a lot of healthy seedlings. They seem to like temps of 0-10°C. (see my journal)
I am surprised, since there are no known descendants of PhM.

Hallo Werner, Wie vergeht es diese Sprosslinge jetzt?
Hello Werner, how are these seedlings behaving now?
Reply #2 of 3 posted 4 APR 11 by wernersen
Hallo Jay-Jay,
it seemd those first 6 were not hybird finally. They flowered white to pale pink 2,5-4 cm diameter. Three of them grew to about 3m in two years and I removed them last year.
The seedlings mentioned in the last paragraph of the comment amounted to more than 300. My children were able to sell almost 200 of them at a local plant exchange at 20-50 cent a piece.
At the moment I have another ca. 50 seedlings in the second year and hope to get some flowering this spring. After flowering season all open pollinated PHM seelings that have not flowered or have flowers of no interest will be culled by me.

I have got so many more interesting seedlings (see journal e.g. PHM x Mozart) that I have to remove as many as possible to keep some space in my garden.
Should you have have interest in any plants let me know.

Thank You for Your reply Wernersen.
I hope the new seedlings bring what You had in mind.
The other ones You might use for/as a rootstock, for budding more interesting seedlings.
Maybe there is no known offspring of Paul's Himalayan Musk Rambler, because they're mostly lookalikes!
