Bonica

Post by Guest on 11th January 2011, 10:47

Howdy all

Has any one done any breeding with Bonica. I have just pollinated Bonica with Elara , Bamako, Hilda Sophia Lehmann and Solance Elara and Bamako worry me a bit as both were bred from a minature and I am concerned the flowers might come down in size, the other two should be ok ( I hope). The thing I like about Bonica is the prolific flowering and the abundance of bloom, oh and its health nothing seems to phase it in this area.

I pollinated mine for the first time this year with Brindabella Bouquet and Monsieur Tillier... will be interesting to see how they go.

The thing i like about it as well is , it sets hips very easily and they seem to mature at a pretty fast rate.

Warren, I assume "Solance" is one of yours, I reckon if it does come to germinate it, WILL be a winner.
As I have Camp David next to it, do think I could cross these 2

Reason I wanted to use Bonica, David, is that it is a sempervirens hyrbid with wichurana not very far back either. How healthy is Camp David? I would use the most healthy rose you have on it as Bonica spots quite badly for me here. I can send you some rugosa pollen to use if you like too.

Yep Solance is one of mine (IcebergX Baronne e De rothschild), It is very healthy gets nothing on it and flowers right up to winter. Camp David's parentage is missing so I cant go back to see whats looming in the depths of genetic material, plus it has only 2 offspring which really is'nt enough to valuate it strongest or weakest traites.

I tell you what though , looking at CD structure I would love cross it with Honor and Gemini, reckon it would be a marriage in heaven .

Now David how are the 240 Camp David's going that you bought??, a lot of pollen to play with Woohoo

Warren, unless we have our wires crossed I did not buy 240 CD's, It could have been the other David(Dave C). Ok, Will Bonica cross with all sorts of roses or not.

OOPPS must be the other David, From what I can see from going on HMF its a fertile little devil, I have just fertilized 4 hips and is the first time I have used this cultivar, so from exprience I dont know, but from others it seems ok.

Camp David is fertile. I've used it quite a bit. I love its sometimes quartered look and it does OK on hot days. But I didnt buy 240!
