This year I finally was successful in hybridizing roses from my garden, the father is multiflora rose (for hardiness and fast growth) but mother plants are domestic (willd type) roses that are hardy, one pink and one deep purple, they are similar to rambling rose long canes that grow tall then bend towards ground and would be perfect for your property location. I only got about 4 seeds total from 2 varieties, not much, but after 3 years of trying im happy to have gotten something finally!
I was wondering, who will accept my seeds to safely grow so you can eventually plant the plants in your garden, I would be SO grateful and eventually you can post photos of the resulting offspring thats the best part of it all. I worked so hard but with so few seeds I can only give to one person. If anyone has a greenhouse or some place to safely grow them so no animals or weather will destroy the seedlings or blow over the pots and lose the seeds, being it was so hard to get them I want to make sure they will be safe and able to grow. You can have them for free I just need you to send a self addressed envelope with stamp to me and ill send them right away.
Keith, I'd love to - I was just getting an envelope ready for you about 5 minutes ago anyhow, with a few extras in it for you. Amazing, that kismet can be.
By the by, I have both an indoor and outdoor setup right now, and while it's warm as heck down here in summer, I've got decent luck with seeds/seedlings/cuttings. I'd be proud to try my hand at a couple of your seeds.
