One of Last year's seedlings

Post by Admin on 5th November 2010, 20:50

This rose is "Baby Faurax" (note double quotes) x Rosa multiflora. I think it's my second best seedling ever. It's a strong bush about 1m wide and 50cm high so far at 12 months old, is almost completely clean here under a no-spray regime, has interesting dark green wrinkled foliage, and is about to flower for the first time. It's going to be a once flowering rose I think but you never know your luck as remontancy can take a while to 'kick in'. Got colour in it's buds today... and IT'S NOT WHITE What a Face

It makes large clusters of flowers:

The buds and foliage are glandular and have a pine needle-like scent... note also good 'child-bearing hips on these buds Wink :

It's thorns are a nice red colour:

And.... it's NOT white Afro

It's seed parent is a deep purple and quite double so my hope is that at least some of the purple is retained and it will be quite double. Plan will be to self this rose to bring the remontancy back out as well as use it as a foundation stone breeder for hybrid musk type roses Smile

really like the foliage, the buds seem like they have mossing glands forming on them (ah the smell of pine needles)

Oh yeah.. forgot to say.. this one also strikes like a weed and grows super strong on its own roots... the little buds are nice and plump, compared with the single white multiflora ones... chances are good for pompom-like flowers in the mid-to-deep pink range.

Mossing is something that has been hit-and-miss for me. I have two seedlings I am evaluating at the moment that are from mossed parents. They are both OP seedlings to determine whether the seed parents might be worthy to pursue this season as potential seed parents for planned crosses. One was 'Henri Martin' and the other was an unknown Moss. The one form the unknwon moss is a large strong plant but in its second year still has not flowered for me and has no mossing that I can see. The OP Henri Martin seedling is smaller and less vigorous than the first but is very clean so far. I threw a lot of the OP HM seedlings out due to lack of vigour. It seems to have some mossing. Not sure that I want to pursue mossing yet... I'm thinking of doing some really wide and bizarre crosses with mosses... too bad they are such mildew magnets.

i used a moss bred by laffay called laneii, margaret was saying you can see it growing a lot in old cemeteries, the good thing about it

mossing is good
the flowers on the one here a quite big around 4"

the bad thing, you need iron gloves when pruning it, it is dam thorny

Well.... I was wrong about it looking plump enough to be double... this is it today... It's going to be an awesome breeder Smile I reckon I'm going to put 'Ebb Tide' onto it first as my ET seedlings have been exceptionally strong this season Thumbsup
