This is one reason that rose breeders don't take too much stock of their seedlings' first simple blooms...early blooms on my early 90s hybrid of (Rosa moschata X Abraham Darby) that I bred under glass in Denver were few petaled, pale, flat, poor form, but it matured in Denver then in Tampa into a very nice rose, long sold by the Antique Rose Emporium. I love this rose's scent of cinnamon and clove from the mother, Rosa moschata.

  1. God, I love these photos! I'm gonna blow up my plant this spring, by planting it in high percentage of worm castings!
