Best of 2017 Seedlings

The 2018 rose seedlings are just beginning to show their first flower buds and should start blooming in 10-14 days (see second photo below).  In the meantime, here is a collage of some of the best from 2017.

    1. Thank you Kim! All of these survived greenhouse culling and are potted up outside and should start blooming by this time next month. I will try to repeat the collage with photos of outdoor blooms.

    1. Thank you Hetty! I hope that you are also planting rose seeds. It's okay not to keep records and just see what you get!

  5. Only indirectly related, but having read some posts of your on rosebreeders.org you mention you heavily cull for powdery mildew, I also read another thread that fragrance and powdery mildew may be connected (but didn't seem to be a universal opinion)....so I'm wondering given you're heavy selection against powdery mildew do you have many fragrant results?
