Rosa Gigantea Hybrids

I ask this question, why would you start from scratch with R Gigantea, when especially here in Australia we have truck loads of R. Gigantea F1 and F2 crosses available to us through A Clarke's work.

A few years ago I did a cross using Whiz Kid an extremely fertile rose, as I was not sure how fertile Lorraine Lee's pollen was.

This is Whiz Kid (Moulin Rouge X Fantin Latour)

The cross of Whiz Kid X Lorraine Lee

The simple answer to your question is that there are so many other things to try. There are many more answers too.

I would like to see a full plant shot of your seedling too.
