I just looked r. hirtula up on HMF & I like it a lot!

I have been thinking about buying seed in of some unusual roses!

If I can seed from them then I don't care about their stupid website.. but it isn't very 'intuitive' Rolling Eyes

So does 6b through 11 mean it can take a fair bit of cold but it thrives in the heat?

Yep - means it has a really wide tolerance range... so if one was trying for a good all-rounder rose maybe this one has something to offer Dunno

It looks pretty interesting actually. I like the look of it. I have no idea how one would use it to begin with but you are good at that Simon! Suggestions?

It's in the Synstylae so I was thinking diploid wichurana hybrids and maybe clinophylla and bracteata. Will put it with the 0-47-19 seedlings which will be diploid.

Oh OK I was going to say wichuraiana but that was all I could come up with. LOL I think your other suggestions are on the right track too. I am becoming more interested with species roses again after years of ignoring them. I recently bought gigantea, brunoii & a few others are on order!

Gigantea is just starting to take off here... still green... as is laevigata.. Laevigata might be another one to play with using hirtula...

From what I remember laevigata is a lovely rose (I know how much you love it Simon!) but it never took off here & finally died so I never got to see it in full flight. It was bought & planted during drought conditions so little wonder...

I think I recall seeing a pic of laevigata that you posted Simon (from a previous house?) & it was stunning! I think it would cross very nicely with r. hirtula!

Yes... if I could only have one rose... it would be laevigata... you need to grow it own root Damo... it's wild that way and suckers like crazy but that's the way I like it.

My laevigata was grafted & I can imagine it would be much nicer own root. I will try it again someday.

Speaking of faves, I cut my 'Charlotte Armstrong' back today ready to be moved! I hope she makes it; I took some cuttings just in case! LOL

If she dies there will be tears...

I have three laevigata here... two grafted and one own root.. the grafted ones get planted below the graft so they become own root in a short time.

Damo how much wood of Laevigata do you want. there is one down at the old rose nursery that I worked which measures about 5x3x2 metres. If you want some let me know.
