    1. Buck Roses PRESENTATION by Kent Zwick August 27, 2014 Spokane Rose Society

    2. Distant Drums ~ Buck 1985Photo by Connie Gale at RR

    3. Buck Roses ~ Opening Statement • I just sort of fell into it • No planning, just two roses that caught my eye • Quietness & Distant Drums • And then the main reason: • I found them much more difficult to kill. • After that they grew on me !

    4. QUIETNESS ~ Buck 2003 Photo by Connie Gale at RR

    5. Buck Roses • Sometime after the second tier of block I began thinking about trying to acquire all of his roses still in commerce. • Depending on your source there are 104 varieties in commerce . Maybe! • Name discrepancies • New varieties popping up from the Buck family • There are 8 “lost Buck roses”

    7. Pen Pal—Spanish Catalonian “Pedro Dot” Guessing this was pre high school DOT gave him rose growing tips and introduced him to hybridizing. The DOT family contact lasted for three generations. This interest was just that of a home gardener, nothing compared to what followed. Prior to WWII he was a teacher for 5 years in one of the Iowa school districts and as far as I can tell, just that… a teacher. In WWII the served as a Paratrooper in the Golden Unicorn Division and saw combat in Europe. GRIFFITH BUCK 1915-1991

    9. GRIFFITH BUCK • After that he was no longer just a teacher • BS in June 1948 • MS in December 1949 • PHD in March 1953 • All dealing with Horticulture & Microbiology • He became an assistant professor in ’53 but did not become a full professor until 1974 • This can lead to rampant speculation, but I’ll get to that later.

    11. GRIFFITH BUCK • His post graduate work must have gained him a pretty sound reputation. • Canadian’s Dr. Frank Skinner and Will Godfrey (Manitoba) asked him to hybridize the unique Siberian wild rose “Rosa LaxaSemipalantinsk” a repeat bloomer • Buck worked with “Rosa Laxa” for 3-4 years with indifferent success—then in collaboration with Kordes of Germany he used “Josef Rothmund” as the seed parent: got 5 seeds from the cross. All germinated and four were like “Rosa Laxa” and one was the color of ‘Josef Rothmund, and that became the parent of all Bucks

    13. GRIFFITH BUCK • I would have loved to have met the man • Tenacious, Maybe pugnacious • Expert at academic infighting, Yet maybe not. Left a trail of bruised egos and no support following. • Definitely UNCONVENTIONAL, INDEPENDENT & EXASPERATING

    15. BUCK ROSES • Hardiness and disease resistance were a result of budget restraints and not intent. • Seeding one year in greenhouse • Transplant to garden, then just add water • First roses were huge 10-12H, 12-15W. One of the first early successes Apple Jack [1973] is still quite large but not the giant of its predecessors. Wandering Wind [1973] was the first of the smaller shrub roses.
