Anyone use this rose in breeding? Although I know it does set hips and seeds, I only see one offspring listed.

I would think it would be interchangeable with ‘Eugene Furst’ for breeding purposes. It was used both for seed and pollen though it’s somehwat mildew prone. I know Ralph Moore used a similar rose ‘Roger Lambelin’ recently in breeding but the white edging was never trasmitted to the offspring that I know of. Thanks, Robert


I have seedlings from BGA in about every corner here.
