Interesting hybrids with germplasm from gigantea and clinophylla

On the Gardenweb rose forums there are several threads that may interest folks looking for sources for infusions of new traits.

On Antique Rose Forum, there’s a thread about the Viru Viraghavan hybrids that will be available next spring. Several clinophylla hybrids may have the potential to survive with very wet roots; could this be a step towards hydroponic roses?

There are also R. gigantea hybrids that I look forward to seeing.

On the GW Gallery there are two threads: one with a photo of a deep yellow (apparentely substance filled petals) of Golden Threshold, and a second of the species R. gigantea.

Thought you might be interested.
