To keep or Not to Keep

Post by Guest on 15th October 2012, 18:42

This is a rose which has bugged me for years, some years blooms look really nice then other they can look a bit doggy. The plants health is not an issue, but the bloom, it can be sensitive to high heat, resulting in crisping. This was a cross of Kordes [b][i]Sunsprite X (Wendy X Altissimo)[i][b].

The Wendy X Altissimo.




The Sunsprite X (Wendy X Altissimo) rarely gets higher than 2ft high

"There was a little girl, who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
And when she was good, she was very very good,
And when she was bad
She was horrid"

Bad

Words to live by? Wink

(Seriously, that was the first thing that came into my head when I looked at the first picture. hehe)

Yes, with offspring like that I'd keep the parent. At least for a while.
