There's a good chance they will flower this year, Dave. They are both meant to be fully recurrent, however, Paul Barden has mentioned some will wait till their second year to start flowering. This has been true of his clinophylla x modern rose seedlings too. None of mine have started yet either.

'Ebb Tide' has pretty ordinary disease resistance IMO. I like it just for its colour and am hoping to toughen up the purples in the future. On the Brindabella roses, 'Baby Love' features in their pedigree and is where they get their health from. My 'Test tube Baby Love' seedling is still perfectly clean down here and is a really good strong grower for a mini... When it is big enough to propagate I'll be sending it out to anyone on here wanting to use it.

Bernhard, am I allowed to send pollen to you? Maybe I can shoot off a packagae of 'Ebb Tide' pollen for you to play with?

Simon, that would be great, although I have to put the pollen into the freezer until June, but that will be another play. Did you still work with frozen stuff?. I send you a PM with my postal address. Many thanks for your offer Very Happy

I worked with frozen laevigata and golden chersonese pollen this season... touch wood it looks like the laevigata crosses worked using it. The golden chersonese worked on rugosa 'alba' too. So... it can be done. It might lose a bit of viability but you might get at least some to work... never know your luck unless we try right Smile Just hope it's all legal.

Right up until Autumn, David. 'Ebb Tide' flowers over a very long period for me.

I wonder what is behnid 'Windermere', Dave, to make it such a good performer for you? It gets a pretty good rating on HMF for disease resistance too.

There are some little sweeties there too Simon.
Have you looked at Blackberry Nip for a purple/red rose ? I think it might be better than Ebb Tide . I'm looking forward to having Blackberry Nip , Ebb Tide and Route 66 all flower at the same time so I can compare them.

cheers. Rosalie

I'm trying to steer away from hybrid tea, Rosalie. This is why I went for 'Ebb Tide'. I have quite a lot of purples now to use, some of which I consider better than 'Ebb Tide'. 'Ebb Tide's seedlings do, however, have nice blooms.

This is one of the ones pictured on the blog this morning:

I also use 'Route 66', 'Sweet Chariot', 'Wild Rover', 'Ann Endt', Tuscany', 'Tuscany Superb', and 'Violette'. I'm hoping to make a purple ground cover, flower capret type rose.
