Climbing Roses Old and New (1978)

Himalayan Musk Rose Seedlings

Just how much seedlings can vary I found out when Dr. A. I. Janaki-Ammal sent me seed of wild Musk roses growing in parts of Nepal. The progeny ranged in foliage from glossy deep green to blue-grey and downy with an attractive purple flush below. Flower and truss size also varied from plant to plant.
