Thank you Rebekah! Thank You! I'll follow your path. I do have a few mini.ziplocs where I can store my seeds in individual recognizable portions. I'll give them a captan dilute solution rinse before going into the fridge...just in case. Crossing Fingers! Smiling

Do rugosa roses bloom on old and/or new wood?

From what I've seen they tend to bloom on old wood and thus I prune them sparingly, just to keep them shapely and within desired size. My rugosas are just a small fraction of available varieties and many have non rugosa genes so one would have to watch carefully about generalizing too much.

I'm happy to announce that I collected hips from' Maria Rosario' and from 'Conrad Ferdinand Meyer' ( tall rugosa or even a short climber) along with by now almost 60 different cultivars of whatever classes, that sets hips. My next step is to find out how easily do they germinate. Why worry about crossing if one doesn't know afore if the desired mother (seed) plant sets hips that reach maturity here. I'll only know that after the seeds are sown and something comes out of them. that is my next step.... Smiling
I'm posting this now so those up there (N.Hemisphere) tempted to try out own seedlings do not get the urge to deadhead your roses. The early blooms are those that have greatest chance to have ripe hips by the end of season. Green Grin!
