This is the first bud on this rose. I peeled back a sepal and it’s yellow. I"ll post a picture of the full bloom. This plant is thorny and disease free. I’ll try using its pollen this season and hopefully get a reblooming F1.
I’m assuming that since this took 3 years to bloom that it won’t repeat. Is that a safe assumption?
It will be interesting to see if this can create reblooming seedlings, Rob. I think the theoretical proportion will be 1 in 6 rebloomers when crossed with a reblooming rose. I imagine you’ll be putting it on yellows (or yellow minis?). Congrats on this one and the fact that it remains healthy.
I’m hoping that I can get reblooming F1 from these. I will be crossing with yellow shrubs and minis this season. What do you think about Campfire x CGPP? Any rebloomers should be hardy to zone 3 I would think.
Both Clare Grammerstorf x PP, Nyveldt’s White x PP and Morning Magic x PP are completely disease free to date. If interested in plant material let me know.
MMPP1 is doing well. It’s disease free and has not bloomed yet. It does have signs of PP heritage. The leaves are intermediate between the parents and it definitely has PP thorniness.
Thank you for letting me create your listing for Pink Double Knock Out x PP (PDKOPP). I renamed it to more accurately reflect the lineage. I definitely will be using this one for some time to come. It’s rudely healthy and has a nice bloom. I’m hoping to get rebloom in F1. Was this one hardy in your zone 3?
Congrats on your Above & Beyond x Hazeldean seedlings. Are you expecting huge plants from this cross? I’ll be interested in hearing how your ABxHazeldean cross does.
I also have an “Orange Surprise” x PP. The leaves are more like mom but the thorniness points to PP as dad…also that it hasn’t bloomed yet for me. Pics attached. Orange Surprise is from Larry Davis and is: (Carefree Beauty x Rise n Shine) x (Carefree Beauty x Austrian Copper)
Also attached is a pic of Morning Magic leaves on left and MM x PP leaves on right. I don’t have PP to make a comparison.
I’m guessing that MMPP1 was not a PP hybrid because it repeat bloom. The thorniness gave me hope when I first saw it. Any cross from MMPP should be MM x unk. I’ll need to make changes. I"m not even sure I have MMPP1 any more.
This seedling and its sibling have been disease free in all the 4 years since germinating. I was excited when I saw the orange color as the sepals were opening but I’m happy with the buff color and the yellow eye. If only it would repeat. I did collect anthers so i’ll have pollen to work with.
