My two favourite seedling of the year :)

Post by Admin on 15th April 2010, 23:33

OP 'Wild Rover'

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Plant is only satisafactory... but great colour and symmetry.

OP 'Flower Carpet Scarlet'

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

This rose has so far proven bullet proof. Planted in the ground a few months back it is bushing up nicely. Flowers continuously. No disease. Nice shape to the plant which is low so far. Flowers last well and have excellent symmetry. This is my favourite of the year. It needs more testing but I am feeling this one will be my second introduction. I love single pinks with a white eye so much! Fertile too; it's forming OP hips itself already.

Simon, Thumbsup
hope my 1st noack-hybrids will also flower this year, as you know, I did it with 'flower carpet gold' one year ago. I'm still waiting to see the first blooms. But the great message is: no great damages due to the hard winter.

cheers
Bernhard

Bernhard, have you got 'Flower Carpet Amber' yet? I've been impressed by how fertile and healthy this one has been for me here. It's not at all healthy in a pot, but when planted in the ground where its roots can run and stay cooler it grows very strongly and cleanly. AND... it sets hips with EVERYTHING!!! Mine has produced the mother-load of OP hips (from EVERY flower) and has also formed hips with Rosa bracteata and 'Wild Rover' (you couldn't get wider crosses I don't think). I'm keen to see your first 'Flower Carpet Yellow' seedlings too. I hope they are a significant improvement on the parent, which grows cleanly enough here but with most unattractive growth habit. Here's hoping you can tame it Thumbsup

I have another batch of 9 seedlings from Bonica x FCG. If there will raise a good one, I would be happy. If not, doesn't matter, there are enough other roses to breed with.

cheers

Dave... I think the Flower Carpet roses are going to be essential for developing better roses for Australia. I've used Tea pollen on some of the Flower Carpet roses... and they all failed... next season I'll be doing it the other way around using Flower Carpet Amber with 'Monsieur Tillier' and 'Comtesse de Labarthe' mainly.

Thanks Abbi... I LOVE its flower too... I just wish the plant was a bit healthier. Will be watching to see how it goes as it matures though am not expecting great things from it.

Also 8 Brindabella Blackspot Busters at $16 to $18. They also list them as Heat Lovers.

Looks like the breeders have come up with something which will suit our climate. Will be worth a trial.

yep... I have all the FC roses except the coral one (nothing I like about this rose... No ... each to their own I guess), and not all perform as well as each other. The closer they are to 'Immensee' the better they seem to do. I don't like 'Gold' so much either... its form does nothing for me though might prove useful in breeding better yellows (as it has been already in 'Yellow Brick Road'). I like the way they form low shrubs and I like the way they respond to harsh pruning to keep them small. I also like the way they form very large bushes when given free reign and how they can be used for informal and formal hedging. So... I can't wait to see how they combine with Teas to improve their flowers and shape, among other things. I think, combined with miniatures, they could also make great small shrubs for today's shrinking gardens. I bought a new rose the other day called 'Little Wonder' which is along these lines already. It's a low compact wichurana-type rose that is a miniature with nice clear single white flowers. This is it: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] . It sets hips easily too. There are a number in the fridge now to see how they germinate. I intend to put Tea pollen on it next season... So many interesting things to try Smile

Simon, I am not a lover of ground cover roses, this one you have could be a slight improvement to change my mind. It looks on first viewing a small form of "Lavaegarta" IMO.

On the subject of Brindabella, I bet there is no parnetage available.

David, some are listed on HMF with seed and pollen parents, have a look.

Actually Brindabella Blaze is bred by an Australian.

As previously mentioned I uses Bouquet as a pollen parent to Don Juan and will really be interested in the results.

Hey BR.. The photo doesn't show 'Wild Rover'. 'Wild Rover' was the seed parent of this seedling. This is one of my own creations Cool

I'll keep you in mind over the next year or so to send you up a plant to test in the heat Smile So far it hasn't got a name...
