I've been growing roses from seeds since 1991 so I am stunned but delighted....barely a week ago I sowed seeds of wild Rosa multiflora mailed me from Missouri. I left the pot out in that rainy weather and PLANNED to then slip it in a produce bag for the usual three months of cold stratification in the fridge....moments ago I noticed that they are already germinating!!! IF any of the seedlings of this cold climate species grow and BLOOM here in south Tampa, my intent is to create a new race of Multiflora/Tea hybrids. I am PSYCHED!
