My antique memory bin---another cross-over.  Dr. Loomis used Mulberry 
Rose, D. Hall used Dolly Madison in parallel ways.  The two do 
resemble each other a little--yellow ground color in the hafts 
(appearing rosy brown in MR), both with "t" factor, similar form, 
etc.  Didn't intend to mix them up.  You responded to the question I 
meant rather than the one I stated.  Thanks.

>" Neil, do you remember which diploid crosses you tried?"

Vaguely---I had a hybrid between cengialtii and reginae that was TB 
in height, weak stems but a lovely, flared flower with butterfly 
veining in the falls.  I pollenized every bloom it ever produced for 
several years with various aphylla clones Dr. Randolph had sent me.  
Also I used aphyllas on all the species diploids I had.  I never 
tried the method you mention of overwhelming the flower with repeated 
pollenizations and mixed sources--being fastidious and a purist I 
meant to have reliable and known sources.  Instead, I got nothing.

Perhaps the aphylla was the weak source?  I'm not sure why I was 
avoiding advanced tetraploids.  I certainly had some good things 

The whole project disolved when we sold out and I left for seminary.  
I wish I had the one useful hybrid back again, crooked stem and all
