Rancho Mirage, California
USDA Zone: 9b (25 to 30 F / -3.8 to -1.2 C)
Hybridizer specializing in species crosses, especially evergreen species for warm climates.
These include banksia, bracteata, clinophylla, hulthemia and filipes.
Another of my projects is developing own-root hardy disease resistant shrubs for cold climates.
I am especially attracted to fragrant cultivars in a broad range of colors.
I seek to breed disease resistant garden roses. I generally do not focus on exhibition form.
