Re: Your rose hip(s) wanted

I have what my wife describes as a rose tree. She got the cutting from a friend. Pink rose with blooms 3.5" to 4.5" in diameter. The blooms occur at about 4' to 5' above ground level. I have one plant and I'm letting a couple of hips mature. I want one for myself and I'll be glad to send you the other or a mixture of seed from both. I'll contact you when they mature.

Re: Your rose hip(s) wanted

This is a bit OT, but I want to grow some roses for harvesting rose hips -- I understand some are good for making jelly and for using in herbal teas. Does anyone grow roses for their edible purpose and have recommendation on what cultivar to grow ...or even have some potentially viable hips/seeds from them to try growing?
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.

Re: Your rose hip(s) wanted

I would like to say I'm sending seed but....... :(
The hips never turned that reddish color I normally see. I let then dry out. Today I checked the seed. Doesn't look good. Let me send you some from my 2015 bloom. I'd like to see you succeed.
I'll be in touch.
