Possibly... most my tags were eaten by slugs... so I have a whole tray labelled "Temple Bells' x eaten labels Rolling Eyes I won't know any of the Dads unless it is something obvious like stripes.

Does anybody use Wildflower here ?[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

This is a special plant in our garden . In 2008 , Juliet's teacher and her husband were killed in a horrific smash just down the road from our place . In an effort to help with her grieving we went to town the garden center to pick out something for her to plant in the garden for Mrs Watts . The only criteria was that it had to have yellow flowers as yellow had been Mrs Watts favourite colour.
She wandered around and ended up looking at the roses because they by far had the clearest and brightest yellow flowers there . I expected her to pick out Gold Bunny as there were several pots covered in blooms bright enough to catch a 7yr old's eye but she picked up Wildflower and said " I like this one ".

Today I was out the front doing some more pruning and cleaning up ; I was clearing around and underneath Wildflower , hadn't seen it for a couple of months as one of the grevilleas had overgrown it . While I'm pottering I was thinking about Simon and his liking for singles and wondering about Wildflower and whether anybody had tried it out for breeding etc etc . While I'm picking out fallen leaves from beneath it , I recover about 1/2 doz. small red-orange hips . Longer , slenderish , different . Certainly nothing like any other roses that I have here I don't think.
Shelled them when I went inside and their seeds have joined the rest in the fridge . It was the hips that made me look it up on HMF tonight , trying to find where back in the past their shape might have come from .
Through Golden Wings perhaps ??
After looking at parentage , I clicked on *Descendents* , more just to see if it had any, than anything else .
I found that it had three .
The Wild One
65 Roses
Crown Princess Mary
all bred in Australia as it turns out by Mr George Thompson .

Anyone else had a go with it ?

cheers. Rosalie

I never saw Rosalie's above post back in 2010. I wonder how Wildflower's seeds went for you ? That is interesting to know Crown Princess Mary was bred from it. I met Mr George Thompson once, a very nice man with a Scottish or English accent, and he showed me some of his new seedlings and older new roses he had bred.
That was a very sad story about your daughter's teacher and her husband.

Hi Elaine ! There was a lady up near Darwin growing David Austins and having success with them.
