A thornless seedling....

A thornless seedling....

See: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This is going to prove a very important seedling for me (and anyone else interested in breeding thornless healthy roses in the future). It is a seedling from Kim Rupert's 'Carlin's Rhythm' which is a cross between 'Lilac Charm' and Dr Basye's 'Basye's Legacy'. The OP seed was sent over to me in 2010 from the U.S. and this is the only seedling I kept from the batch. It is completely thornless and you can see how healthy the foliage seems to be. It seems to be quite fertile too as its first flower has formed a hip. There is good colour saturation in the flower too. The aim is to put it with ground cover roses to see if healthy thornless groundcovers can be made. I've raised one thornless miniature groundcover rose already but it seems to be completely sterile (see 'Rose Tutu' on HMF).

Will supply cuttings of this one in the future, when it's big enough, to whomever wishes to use it in breeding.

I think you may have posted this one twice Smile

I have a thornless bush, it is hot pink and the flowers are gorgeous. It's almost 6ft high!

Wow... that's quite gorgeous as it is but that as a ground cover with all the attributes of health, repeated blossoms and thornless would be awesome! Do you have to go through quarantine etc to have seed sent in from the US?

Yes... AQIS have a list of allowable imports (called the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) and if it is on this list then you can bring in non-commerical amounts of seed (which is quite huge really.. about 10kg of seed or something ridiculous), without a permit. The seed is sent over in ziplock bags in a normal envelope and the front must be labelled clearly "Attention Quarantine: Contains Rose Seeds" and they take it aside and then treat it, seal it back up and send it on its way. This is what is meant to happen anyway. So far I have never had the parcels inspected by quarantine so I generally impose my own quarantine measures when O/S seed arrives. I keep them sealed in plastic bags for a number of weeks and soak them on arrival in a fungicide. Once when I had seed sent here I found a small wasp had chewed its way out of the seed and was crawling around in the bag. I didn't even open this bag. It went straight into the fire. I always ask the people sending the seed to give the seed a soak in a fungicide and a good scrubbing to remove excess pulp etc.

Wow, it is lovely it's able to happen (relatively) easily compare to some other stuff! I also collect iris (mainly tempo two) and some daffodils and I knew they have a fair few regulations for obvious reasons but wasn't sure how they'd consider rose seeds or how difficult it might make bringing in new stuff!
