More New Seedlings

There are lots of new seedlings.  Here are a few more pics!





Believe it or not, the last photo above is from a cross of 2 of my favorite Hulthemias.  I suspect that the blotch is hidden under the white eye.  I will have to try crossing this one with a normal rose to see if the blotch can be recovered…..

  1. No, wait wait! You are missing out on a big opportunity--- reverse blotches! :P

    Lovely roses. Your culls are better than my best seedlings, lol

    1. Thank you Jakub! Haha! - yeah reverse blotches. I am interested though to see if "hidden" blotches exist...

  2. I'd grow those first three for the stamens alone!

    1. Thank you Jill! That first one really caught my eye while going through the greenhouse. It is a Hulthemia too, but with a very small blotch. The filaments were almost black - a very strange, but interesting rose...

  4. The first two are keepers, as they define a new shape of rose flower - open-petalled...
