Tea Hybrids (not Hybrid Teas ;) ) germinating now :)

Post by Admin on 14th August 2011, 18:12

I've got a couple of batches of really interesting seedlings that have started germinating at the moment. they include:

'Trier' x 'Marie Van Houte' - this is the best of them so far.. already 5cm tall and going strong.
'Trier' x 'Monsieur Tillier'
'Babyflora' x 'Comtesse de Labarthe' (see here for info about my 'Babyflora' [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
'Abraham Darby' x 'Comtesse de Labarthe'
Rosa rugosa 'Alba' x 'Monsieur Tillier'
'Wild Rover' x 'Safrano'
'Trier' x 'Safrano'
'Immensee' x "Monsieur Tillier'

Not a tea, but pretty close Wink : 'Trier' x 'Mutabilis'

Really looking forward to flowering time this spring/summer Cool

Sounds like a few interesting crosses there.

Trier x MVH could be a monster in warm climates. We had a Trier once but it grew to long and stalky. MVH is a giant up this way.

Babyflors sounds nice as well. 5 foot after one year!

5ft high and wide.. it's just beginning to leaf out again for spring and it's going to be covered in masses of single pink flowers.I'm hoping to get the hybrid musk form and flowering with the health and flowers of Teas that are more vigorous in cooler Tas Smile I'll send you up a giant for testing Wink 'Trier' is pretty long and lanky down here too. Mine is only one year old and is about as big as 'Babyflora' (5'x5') and after a few years growth I intend to give it a good cut back to bush it up a bit... I'm not unhappy with it so far though so if it starts to fill in a bit then it may get left alone instead.

Yeah our Trier was a flop. Not many leaves and not that many flowers but apperently it has been a good parent as it appears to have been used in a lot of the early hybrd musks.

Your Babyflora sounds like it is ok by it self but as a breeder you would have to think that the results could be something special.

Happy to try out anything if you want to test them in warmer weather. We still have a few acres free.
