Again more questions Warren, Does Altissimo cross easy. What might the outcome be the other way round

altissimo is very easy to cross, just choose your pollinator well as altissimo 's single gene is very strong as with its colour

David... 'Altissimo' works as a pollen parent with EVERYTHING. My feeling with 'Altissimo' is to put it with something VERY double because you will get a reduction in petals in the progeny. I find the seeds VERY hard to germinate by conventional methods. I've taken to just leaving them in the fridge and forgetting about them until something happens... which hasn't yet. I've got 'Altissimo' x 'MME Isaac Pereire', x florist rose pollen, and x 'Euphrates' in the fridge now but no movement yet. If it germinated more easily I'd say 'Altissimo' is the perfect bridge variety because it is fertile as anything and if varieties that are less fertile are put with it maybe fertility can be introduced. For instance bracteata hybrids are hard to make and often have reduced fertility. One strategy may be to put them through something really fertile first to see if a fertile line can be established.

here are some examples of the using altissimo, the results can vary greatly depending on the pollinator.

this is a cross with playboy









this is a second generation cross , the height of this rose is 1ft from ground level to the top of the flowers, the flowers are pale yellow fading to white, these have been out now for a week and still looking ok







this is a cross of altissimo and perfume delight , a little different than the top two

Love the colour in the first 2 shots and the flower is not complex, just great to look at. Is it possible to get perfume in theses type of flower and stay "singlish"

I'm now convinced that this 'Altissimo' is a great breeding plant cheers . Breeding with moss roses I will take also under consideration.

guten tag bemo, alitissimo is good, have nt had to much go wrong with it, the moss roses are interesting, gives you another character as in the moss and scented flowers, laneii which i use the flowers are quite big , but man thorny, be prepared to wear steel gloves. my sympathie is fully loaded with devoloping hips, have you worked out who this is LOL

Laneii is a survivor rose, found in various old cemeteries - and suckering vigorously. Are your seedlings suckering?
I'm impressed with your breeding successes. I've decided I don't have the knack.

that was pretty easy, although one have always to be aware that a new member could be another 'Thee'. She is a master of disguises (like an octo’ ) and appears often in different clothes.

this will be a supprise to all the altissimo followers, some times good things can happen , this rose was registered years ago as MOTHER FREEDOM it is a cross of [b](WENDY X ALTISSIMO), grows to around 4ft and has a heavy damask fragrance, the bloom has a bit of weather damage but you get the idea

Goodness ! what is lurking back in the depths of this one's bloodlines ?
I see both Wendy and Altissimo's sort of end in dead-ends of knowledge.

Nice one ozwoz Thumbsup

hi rosalie

if you look at FREE STYLER on HMF you will see the same pattern emerging , i would say it is definately on the wendy side . wendy was bred from a rose WHITE DREAM known to have thrown a hell of a lot of sports, thats one of the reasons i used in my earlier years, the amount of variation is unbelievable. wendy will not set hips by its self, but once i worked it out , every bloom set a hip for me and the seed though tiny is extremely fertile with almost every one germinating

hope you liked the explanation

cheers warren

I am now convinced, some where deep in Altissimo's genes there is a super double of an old garden form. First it happened with Mother Freedom and last year I did a (Baronne e De Rothchild X Arjuna) arjuna is a
Altissimo X Blue Moon, the flower on the new seedling , to look at , is very similat to something bred back in the 1800's , ultra double old fashion form.
Genes what else are they hiding in there?

Edited 12th
Did a scan of Delbards pre 1960's it is amazing what the flower structures looked liked and what they used in their breeding programmes. Also scanned meiland's pre 1940's , it is amazing what HT's looked like compared with the plastic looking things of today.
