For Carole and Wendy possible rejects

Post by Guest on 3rd March 2012, 13:06

Went to the roses out of town to check the roses, didn't have to put floaties on them, but did photograph some which still could get culled yet. Just remember they have had inches of rain on them so they may not look that flash.

Well, that's interesting. I do have Gold Bunny and love it (even if the BS loves it too). Safrano really should be on my Wish List. Hmmm.

Is lack of scent one of your reasons to cull?

I think if was a semidouble it would be OK , just feel its a bit weak in the bloom structure.

Oh, and since you mentioned it was very bushy....
Rabbits.
If you ever want to add (another) criteria to your rose breeding called "non-rabbit-appetizers" then may I humbly suggest taking a look at 'Gremlin' (bred by Kordes I think?) I know rabbit tastebuds would have been the last thing on the minds of the people over there but rabbits do NOT TOUCH that rose. It's beautiful and bushy to the ground. (Very disease resistant too)

No 13 Wendy can have if I can have the others --pretty, pretty please.

I have noticed Warren that you have become very popular with the girls. Have you any idea why ?

Who me Carole?

Wendy I like that Gremlin, one thing though, do the blooms fade out a lot, looked at HMF and one pic looked like there was a bloom almost white. I like the colour and the reverse colour, being healthy is also a big bonus.

I think that would be a camera issue. Certainly the reverse colour fades to a light yellow and it could look white-ish with the camera, especially when the rest of the petal is a strong colour. I found them tricky to photograph.
The really hot weather can scorch/bleach them a bit. In that sense I don't know how they would go for you up there - but they flower for such a long time that one batch of crispy flowers in high summer is a trade off.
This thread has the pics I took in October:
