The Moss rose ‘Black Boy’ is claimed to be very disease resistant. Does anyone have breeding experience with this rose. Is it pollen fertile and does she produce hips? I guess rather not, so the request could be difficult. In any case, I would be really happy for every possible advice. Thank you very much!
You can always test it but it is a once bloomer, so it takes a lot of time to see if it is worth it.
Edit: some websites noted it repeat blooming.
I think it could, in theory, create reblooming F1 seedlings based on parentage. I came across this one too this last year and wondered that no one had seemingly created anything of it. I wonder if it just appeared at the wrong time to catch the attention of breeders.
Thanks to both of you. I will try my very best with this rose. Provided that something beautiful succeeds, I will report.
