Some Roses being trialed

Post by Guest on 28th September 2011, 16:13

All the pics were taken this afternoon after a massive storm went through, so the quality of the blooms may not be that crash hot.

I like all four of them Warren.
The top one I like the colour along with the shape of the flower. I love the three sections at the bottom balanced with the two top sections that curve round off centre. Yes for me - love it.
Second one, very pretty, delicate, romantic,?bridal. very, very nice, another winner.
Third one I really, really like - Garry said like a sasanqua camillia wich having looked at I would have to agree with, but my first thought was double delight.
The last one is just so so pretty, what a shade of pink - fantastic.

Hi Carole;
The top one I do not know what to think of it yet, maybe when the weather gets warmer, the bloom will open up nicer. Its growth is pretty short and compact with that Tea like twiggy growth.

The Queen Elizabeth X Arjuna, I think will develope into something really nice, cannot wait untill late October when all growth is at full power.

The Charles Austin X Arjuna bicolour, I love bicolour roses, whether it be like this one, two colours going down into a petal or different colours on the reverse of the petal. It gives you another dimension to your bloom on top of bloom structure . The last one when you see it on the bush is really nice , that bloom is enormous, my eyes sort of popped yesterday when I saw it.

I see you are about to get all that nasty weather we are having, you better tie everything down it got pretty blowy here yesterday with horizontal rain.

Nice blooms, Ozroz. Must be exciting breeding your own roses.
We ended up getting 60 mls of rain, which is really fantastic for Spring.

Thanks Rosemeadow, Its becomes really rewarding when you put so much work into the research and something nice might come out of it. We have had some shocking storms here over the last 24hrs, but it has topped up the moisture for the cereal growers, I can see them grinning.

I think this rose might turn into a nice bicolour looking at the bud, growth is very compact and healthy. Should be open by Monday.

This is one of the not so newies, but I think shows a lot of potential of being something good. The bloom got battered a bit by the storms we had. It is a (Wendy X ( Europeana X Othello)) X Dr A J Verhage. Both blooms it had have just been pollinated with Diamond Jubilee X Mme Caroline Testou pollen.

Good to 'see' you in the latest HRIA mag, Warren. Thanks for sharing your pollinating techniques - always something new to learn.

Hi Dave; Margaret asked me months ago if I was interested in doing it, what I know was due to trial and error. If I can help some one to achieve something, its good, I hate seeing some one struggle in what they are trying accomplish.

One day when I am more financial I will join again as I really enjoyed reading their rose journals, and I will make sure I buy the previous ones I missed too so I will be able to read your article, Warren.

Went out of town where I have most of my roses today in between storm fronts, every thing looks ok.

The Gold Bunny X Arjuna from the other day has opened up a bit more for me to see. Orange pink with a yellow reverse .



This is another bloom on the Queen Elizabeth X Arjuna, a bit weather beaten.



This rose has really stabilized this year and is growing extremely well with good health, it is a Sympathie X Maigold, petal count is way over 40 and foliage is wrinkley.

Here are a few roses which I have been trialling, the first one is being kept not because of it bloom structure but the colour. Colours like this can create alot of nice things.


These SafranoX Gold bunny pics are of young bloom going through to a few days old.

17E 67F ..... .WOW. OMG!!!

The petals are certainly interesting on the Safrano x Gold Bunny.

I tend to be a real sucker. There aren't many roses I *don't* like .. Very Happy (more! more!)

Hey AutumnDamask, you just leave 17E 67F alone. I have already packed my shovel so in the dead of night I will remove it from Warrens garden and relocate into mine. He wont know it is me as I know you wont tell him.
Thinking maybe a few more to make the trip worthwhile.
On a more sensible note it is a great looking rose Warren, I just love the colour combo and the shape of the bud.
4c 48d the top one I really like as well.
The Great Southern Sky's one is a winner I would think as it would appeal to so many people.
I like the rest as well Dance Dance Dance

It appears Warren out of the one's you have placed here, 17E 67F is a winner as 2 girls have already taken a liking to it. Is it going places(I hope).
GB X Atomic, Sy X AM are also one's that stand out for me.
