Metis

Hi All

I met a beautifull “Metis” picture.

After Schneider’s Combined Rose list “Metis” is not sold here in Europa.

Is there a possibility to get open pollinated seeds?

Hi Pierre

According to the literature, Metis doesn’t set hips. I think that this is only because it has a double flower, not because it is infertile. I got a small plant this summer and it did set a hip that is still there. I think that if someone wanted hips from it they would have to pull out the inner petals to give nature a chance.

If you don’t get any offers at this time. I would be happy to send you seeds next year when the plant has a chance to mature.
