Re: Seedling

Cool, Joe. I like the dark stems and leaves, and could certainly imagine that that plant has Radler genetics. (The toothed margins are a little too perfect, however!) I seem to recall you saying that 1113 was not very kind about permitting colors on offspring, so I understand your second-guessing. (...

Re: Stratification period?

Those folks in California will make you crazy if you listen to them. Everything is effortless in CA. ;-) (Kim, do you sow your seeds green? Or how do you avoid the dormancy issue?) I admittedly have not done any experiments to compare approaches, but the technique I used years ago, and which I resum...

...Or something evoking a Tutu, or flamenco dancer's dress... Maybe just Flamenco? Flamenco Dancer? Twirling Flamenco?

Yeah... I kinda like that last one. (Google any image of flamenco to see why...)

Re: Unusual seedling

Wow, Judith. That is very striking. Love the eye and the ruffles! Would you call it a "wine" color? I dunno... "Splash of wine" or "wine ruffles" or "Red Ruffles"... I kinda like the idea of "splash" in the name, personally. To me it evokes the shape, and perhaps the eye. But then, your rose-cross b...

Re: Kind of starting new

I might add more Kordes roses to that list, Joe. I personally have no familiarity with Sunbeam Veranda, but if you want healthy warm colors (you already have Lemon Fizz) you might add Sunny Sky. She is very healthy, fertile, and was herself used by Kordes to create Orangerie. (Pierre in France extol...

Re: Some current pictures...

Tom, if you are wanting a really healthy modern yellow shrub, you could do worse than to try Lemon Fizz or Sunny Sky from Kordes. I haven't yet worked with Carefree Sunshine, but she gets relatively little BS in my climate. And Limoncello is a blooming machine. Stephen Hoy has gotten seedlings off o...

Re: Some current pictures...

Cool stuff, Tom1 Speaking only from 2nd hand anecdotal experiences, I would suspect late blooming Asian Synstylae as the parent for that first one, though as I mentioned in another thread, I do have some setigera x mutabilis seedlings. Does Lemon Splash have a propensity to BS for you? I would imagi...

First blooms vs mature blooms on seedlings

I was just wondering if there was a thread already in which folks have posted "before and after" photos to show the potential that seedling with a "meh" first bloom might ultimately present. Over the years I've seen some first blooms that blow me away for their substance and form, and it kinda makes...

You might well be the one who fed me the term, Joe! LOL. (Weren't we both the ones running with horizontal and vertical resistance terminology as well?) Please tell me *you* didn't pick it up from *me*! Then I really do feel bad! Right... Tropism has to do with orientating. I never really thought ab...

Re: Bellecom x OP

Thank you, Joe, for pointing that discrepancy out to me. I was taking it on faith that the rose out there was diploid... Knowing that Legacy allegedly came from "the probable amphidiploid", I've always assumed the rose that is in commerce as "legacy" -- being the same rose as Comm. Gill., and presum...

Re: Open pollinated seedlings from F1 carolina X gallica

A little off topic, but I strongly suspect that Ralph's R. soulieana was not the species. He got a number of repeaters from the plant, and the foliage and stems lack the grey bloom of the species. Nonetheless, there are a good many purported species offspring out there that repeat when they shouldn't.

Re: Is sterility sometimes a physical problem, and not genetic?

Interesting. I never thought to worry about going the other direction -- I always presumed that pollen would have a "shelf-life" of a few days, and if it was sticking the flowers, it would in good time be induced to germinate a pollen tube. But I suppose the pollen wouldn't really even "stick" to ta...

Re: first roses of the year

Marty, I think Brian was wanting to know if the two-tone was a sunlight induced color change, or if that's a stable trait that would also occur in e.g. a greenhouse setting. The confusing terminology is one I am guilty of. I saw someone refer to sunlight-induced color-changing as phototropism, and I...

Re: first roses of the year

Very pretty, Marty. I think the foliage will set off those blooms beautifully. Is that the first bloom of the seedling? I'll be curious to see how it develops on a mature plant! A mini Abigaile could be quite beautiful. I never managed to get *any*thing from Gigi. Congratulations. And *my* first blo...
