It’s been out for some time and I’m thinking long enough for people to experiment. So, have anyone of you seen any fertility with the world’s only commerically introduced striped rugosa hybrid?
I’ve been looking for any info on the fertility of any of Ralph Moore’s hybrid rugosas. I remember seeing extremly rare OP hips on Linda Campbell, none of which have germinated. (Although, I picked them when they were dry.)
I’ve been toying with the idea of enhancing the species colors of rugosa instead of working against it… The hip of R. (kordesii X Basye’s Amphi) X Persian Sunset, I don’t know what happened to it. It may had aborted, plucked off by an animal, or accidently snapped when somebody brushed up against it.
But I had thought of putting halo’s on the unattactractive rugosa’s natural color as something that maybe pleasing. I’m envisioning something similar to Nigel Hawthorne.
