For Those Who Like Pretty Buds and Sepals

. . . like them as much as I do???

Here is "De la Vina Mystery" ramping up for a new flush of bloom. :-)

Jeri, what a beauty. It must be a delight to grow this lovely mystery rose.

I think it would be hard to find a rose whose buds are not pretty. I like them all, the thin elegant ones, the fat onion-dome-like ones, the ones with fancy sepals, and the ones without...

Don't you love it? I can't resist the potential every bud has.

Wow, those are great. I especially like Duquesa de Penaranda and Shon Ingeborg.

Here is a favorite of mine. I love this rose in the bud almost more than I do in full bloom.

Baronne Henriette de Snoy's beautiful bud stems. I love that plum-red! Jeri, what a great thread to start!

I love these. Thank you so much, Jerijen, for posting these beautiful photos and starting this thread. Many of these names are completely new to me.

Beautiful; inspires me to take more pictures of buds. But, I'm terrible at taking pictures.

Well, 'Crested Moss' is just the ULTIMATE, isn't it?

I can't grow it here . . . Well, we DID -- but after a handful of years, with no winter dormancy, it just faded away.

Here is a rose descended from it, that I CAN grow -- An un-released Ralph Moore rose, crested (tho to a lesser extent) but fully remontant, and a handsome climber --

"Dawn Crest"

Lovely! I like the blooms too, not that generic pink that so many mosses have. What about "Crested Jewel", did you try that, Jeri?

Crested Moss is beautiful, but actually, "the ultimate" is Crested Sweetheart. I've not encountered anything as outrageous as Crested Sweetheart, not even Crested Jewel. Believe me, I've LOOKED. Kim

Here is a link that might be useful: Crested Sweetheart

My goodness! Gorgeous, gorgeous buds from so many of you! Here's a simple bud from my brand new Alnwick (planted bare root this April).

What is that little bug, and does it hurt roses?

You're likely right, Kim -- but I think it might have problems opening, here, through spring and early summer.

Most likely it would. This is a seedling whose sepals I'm really enjoying. Kim

I'm loving all the buds and sepals! Big sepal fan here!! Roses are such detailed plants, especially OGRs and new cultivars which are what I call "holistic roses," plants that have been bred for garden value beyond nipped blossoms for show and vase...not that they necessarily fail on those counts. I'm thoroughly enjoying all the photos. If I can get to the computer, I'll join in the photo posting. Some of my damasks and albas grow fantastic sepals. I was recently seduced by Paul Barden's Crested Damask and look forward to blooms next year. Carol

Labrea, I am seriously casing your garden! I've never seen so many gorgeous OGRs grown to perfection--striped ones, mossed ones, etc.

Kim, nice sepals as always! Please never stop breeding roses. :-)

I agree with you, Carol, about Labrea's OGRs. Amazing how wonderful they can be when grown where they SHOULD be. Thanks. As long as I can get water and enough room to raise them, I intend to! This seedling germinated in the past several months and is pushing its first bud. Nice sepals so far. Kim

Oh No no no those are from either the NY or Brooklyn Botanical gardens!
I have a small space in a community Garden with about 7 roses depending on what I keep & give away the overall Garden has about 60 to 70 roses many of which I had donated over the years!

I had to reinstall the mesh covering on the seed table to keep the squirrel and Towhees out of it so I can't see the tag in the jungle of foliage, but that table has both Lynnie and April Mooncrest crosses in it. My guess would be something crossed with April Mooncrest. The seedling beside it resembles Dawn Crest in its sepals. I did a lot of mixing those two together. Kim

I would love to watch Kim at work with his crosses some day.

The cuttings I got from him in November are growing like weeds and as happy and healthy as I could ask.

Oh how neat! Congratulations, Kippy! I'm thrilled to hear that and happy for you! Sure, when do you want to climb down the slope and watch me "pimp pollen"? Don't expect "gardens". I have weed "companion plantings" and plenty of fried off foliage! (NOT KIDDING!). Kim

Kim, I would love to see.

What is the best time of the year? Does Ralphs's Crested Sweetheart do well on this side of the mountain range or just on the Bako side?

Seems it is birthday party season for the next couple of weeks, then company and trips to LAX so there will be a lot of driving to LA for me in the next month. I am trying to figure out how I can make it a fun trip if I have to drive to LAX.

Hi Kippy, Crested Sweetheart did quite well in Newhall. It's half Little Darling (black spot where an issue) and Crested Moss (black spot, rust and mildew where they're problems). It's extremely double with thin, papery petals chock full of scent, the perfect combination for balled globs of yuck unless there is good, dry heat in which to open. If you can't provide at least a nobel attempt at that, Crested Jewel is a better choice, though not nearly as outrageously frilly. Nice, but not AS crested.

Please let me know as soon as you figure out what might be possible so I can shovel the dog "presents" and cut things back so you can squeeze through the "jungle"! Wear a hat, dress comfortably for HEAT and wear comfortable shoes! The front, where I propagate and many hips are forming on the potted plants, is east facing so it's brighter and warmer in the earlier part of the day, but by noon, it's shaded and cooling. The main concentration of roses is half a story lower on the full western exposure so it gets HOT later in the afternoon. Paths are narrow and things snag every direction you turn, so, as I said, don't expect manicured, "tended" gardens. Those are at my clients' homes, NOT mine! Kim

Well I actually do have a pic of a bud, it's the first bud of Heritage, I took it before I went out of town because I knew I wouldn't be home to see it bloom. Sorry about the poor quality of the phone, took it in a hurry with my phone.
