Variations of a Wendy X Altissimo

Post by Guest on 11th June 2012, 09:16

Although it did not produce the variation numbers of the Abraham Darby cross , it did produce 10. The first two I kept because of their fertility .

This one is awesome when trying to cross those real difficult types, you always get a result.


This is the seedling pic of 06 8/8/1, and was crossed with Eyes for You last spring

The four left are registered.








Charlotte Graham produced a sport which is shown below. Growth is stronger ,very glossy and a lighter green. Bloom colour and structure is completely different.

When the bloom is in perfect form you can't beat it and it has a killer perfume as well. It is one of my favourites here at home.

A Better Tomorrow is totally bomb proof, it is one of the healthiest roses that I have bred, completely no BS PM nothing and its vigour and repeat bloom is awesome to boot.

Quick question. How does a rose sport and if it does how can you propagate it further keeping the characteristics of the sport?

Gary here is a site which explains it very simply.
http://www.rose-roses.com/issues/sport.html

You can grow them from cutting but because some sports can be more valuable than the original plant, budding is the best way. With the Charlotte Graham sport it is quite easy to see where it is in the shrub due to its reddish hue to the canes, it has greater vigour than Charlotte Graham as well.

I have a hunch that Wendy and its F1 and F2 offspring, give large numbers of varied offspring due to the jumping gene The Transposon.

Thanks I will have a look.

The reason why I asked is our Mme Lambards are in flower at present and one branch on one of them has thrown a deep red flower. I will do a cutting from the branch and see what happens. It's up about 4 metres in the air so I doubt that it is rootstock (I think this one is cutting grown though it may be the original plant we purchased I can't remember).
