My first hybrid hulthemia seedling to bloom! The bud looked like it was having trouble opening so I opened it and found a caterpillar inside the bud... so please forgive the moth eaten appearance. Personally, I am blind to it Wink I'd like to thank Jim Sproul in the U.S. for sending over the seed to give us this opportunity. I told Alicia, my better half, that I would call my first blotched baby 'Eye Candy'. So.. here it is... 'Eye Candy' Smile

I had the spray bottle ready to make sure it didn't get any disease but I haven't had to use it. This is the foliage. Pretty good at he moment and no disease to be seen. Jim was telling me that mildew has been his biggest issue with them and that putting 'Baby Love' through his hulthemia seemed to clean it up. So far, Jim, I have not seen any mildew and it's been a terrible year for mildew. Looks like 'Baby Love' has really done the trick for over here (so far).

Close up... it's like a Kaleidoscope (might be a good name for one of the other 6 seedlings yet to flower) love Looks like it makes pollen too Smile

As time goes on, if anyone would like some pollen to play with let me know and I'll send up what I can.

Wow, that is awesome looking! I'd not heard of that sort of rose (not surprising, I've never heard of many) so I had to google it to find out more. I came across the Sproul blog and all I can say is WOW! What a stunning group these are.

G'Day Dave! I reckon this one will end up semi double. I counted 7 petals on it not 5 so I think it will keep increasing for a year or two yet. I've snipped this flower off to see if I can get any pollen off it.

Hi Simon,

It is clear by this seedling's appearance that you have a good deal of great luck! It is a rare Hulthemia seedling that has that much blotch development at such an early stage. I think that you will be very pleased with the more mature representation of the blotch when temps cool in the next 3 months. Best wishes with it!

Jim Sproul

Thanks, Jim. I think it represents an important step for roses here and I hope to pass the pollen around as far and wide as I can and as time goes on, make plants available for others to use.

Apparently the name 'Eye Candy' isn't available (though my understanding is that you can register a rose with the same name as another so long as it goes into a different class) so at the moment it's JS-2011-OPK206-1 (as entered on HMF).

No luck with the blotches on the other seedlings yet... very pretty flowers but no blotches so far.

Jim, These are the petals on the 2nd one I sent you. I noticed they have a tiny blotch on them when the petals were removed.

This is the flower when it was almost open:

I could see no evidence of a blotch on it when it first opened without removing the petals:

What can I expect this one to do as it matures? I only removed the petals, not the rest of the flower as it looks like the type to set self seed easily. If it sets self seed is there a chance the blotch will be better in the next generation? If I'm thinking this through correctly:

* you believe the blotch is dominant (and Mendelian for simplicities sake maybe???).
* this seedling is probably tetraploid right.
* If we assume it is Mendelian and make the blotch 'B' and non-blotched 'b' then this seedling is probably Bbbb yes?
* This means if it selfs it could make BBbb right and the blotch should be better/bigger?
* Would it be worth putting this one to the first one, which I'm assuming is probably BBBB or BBBb?

One of the last ones to flower. This one has a great blotch but too many petals to show off the blotch properly. As it matures the flower will change so I'm hoping it will lose those petaloids in the middle and open flatter to reveal the blotch more. If this happens it will be amazing. Will be a great breeder.
