Re: Re: REB: Rose Kinnard's seedlings


Hi Linda-
These are all parents I have used FE pollen on or vice versa.  None of the seedlings have fall bloomed till this year's cross with Tropical Delight.
The Love the Sun cross will bloom this coming spring.  I have had trouble setting pods with LTS pollen, but it does set pods.  But I have never been pleased with the seedlings-they seem small, weak and do not carry the ruffling, form, height of LTS.  I was looking for a paticular color pattern for several years and made repeated same crosses - results were repeatedly disappointing.
2009 I made 2 very different crosses using LTS and will see what they bring me.  The seedlings are much more vigorous, and have nice increase for 7 mth old seedlings here.  Fingers crossed.
I have not succeeded in getting any Tea Leaves seedlings-can't say exactly why.  May look at that again this spring.

Wow - what a great bunch of parents!

Oh wait - did you mean those are all crosses with FINAL EPISODE? Or
just that those parents rebloom but haven't produced rebloom seedlings
for you?

If those are all crosses from FINAL EPISODE, I really envy the LOVE THE
SUN seedlings - I've tried every year it has bloomed here, but no luck
with anything. And, of course, IMM seedlings from FINAL EPISODE.

Here's the ratty little bunch of maiden bloom this spring from a mix of
TEA LEAVES, MATRIX, and FINAL EPISODE genes. My notes are a bit obscure
as to whether this is (TEA LEAVES x MATRIX) X FE or reverse. I had both
& will have to dig out the original planting notes to be sure which it
is. Lots of diversity of color but without rebloom, nothing to cheer about.

<Other reblooming crosses without rebloom noted. Dark Passion, Stellar
Lights, Honky Tonk Blues, Frappe, Love the Sun, several crosses to
seedlings out of Olympic Challenge, Summer Olympics, Capt Gallant,
Immortality, are just a few that come readily to mind. >
