Are you the Kuska that gave Rippetoe a yellow rose?

Yes I hybridized the yellow climber that I gave Robert Rippetoe budwood (and others).



I opened a new thread Mr. Kuska so as not to be tangential in the original one.

I, like many others here I believe, think it is wonderful how Paul Barden shares his knowledge, experience, and the excitement of his introductions and potential introductions with us here.

I am happy to know that you are here too. Are you still actively hybridizing?

I am no longer hybridizing. For several years now we have been preparing to move to a low maintence late retirement living development.

Mr. Kuska,
I've been exploring your links. Thank you for them. In the process I found a photo collection page which I've linked below. I think I might have many questions and comments. It will take me a while yet. I just wanted to quickly say I'm enjoying the voyage of discovery.
Thank you.
And also that I hope we will not be disconnected from you if and when you complete your retirement plans.
