Regarding Highwire Flyer, I want to note that the stunning rose on the cover page of the A.R.T.S. webpage (linked to in another post) is Highwire Flyer. I hope they can look half that good up here in Zone 3. I noticed another young seedling of the same cross that also has the metallic foliage.

In other seedlings, I kind of like the spoon-shaped petals of this seedling, which comes from All the Rage. What are my chances that future blossoms will be similar? Is it worth anything aesthetically?
I absolutely love the shape of this rose! Very unique, and I love the name "Groovy!" haha

Your seedlings are always a favorite of mine to see 😭😭❤️

Here's another Art Nouveau seedling that just opened. (x Campfire)

I think this had been allowed to wilt, which might have influenced the bloom form...will be interesting to see future blossoms.

I wouldn't sweat the size of the boom, Joe. In fact, I would be surprised if it *could* be made much larger. Others with more knowledge will hopefully set my assumptions straight, but I don't know of any e.g. fimbriated rose blossoms that achieve the otherwise expected size. Serratipetala and Grootendorst, for instance, are both generally not more than about 2 inches across, despite being a sport of Cramoisi, and a rugosa, respectively. (Cramoisi's blooms are typically close to 25% larger than it's fimbriated sport, as I recall.)

My assumption is that the mutation stunts the petal growth. But it's still a really cool novelty.

Philip and all,

Your responses, now and previous, to the AN x R. carolina seedling makes me think I should try to move forward with that. I had been unimpressed for some reason but a blossom that odd is rare, I guess. What I'm noticing about AN seedlings with the "defect" is that the petals might not reach their mature size. I think I just have to play around with it in many directions and hope something interesting (and reblooming and hardy and healthy) pops out. That plant is out in my field and I may decide to dig it this fall in order to get more than a handful of blossoms to work with.

I'm missing my chance to pollinate all of the AN x FIVI3 blossoms that are opening on my large potted plant because of life and work demands. However, I did stick All the Rage pollen on a number of them, hoping to recover rebloom and increase petal size while retaining warm tones and some sort of striping or other pleasing oddness.

IMO, the AN x R. carolina seedling is pretty spectacular. I've never worked with R.c. obviously, but I"m pretty impressed that she (he in this case?) allowed an offspring to inherit so much Art Nouveauness. I wonder if it could carry out another generation. Regardless, I think you really do *need* to give it a try! (Dunno if you would need to reinforce A.C. in the next cross?)
(Enjoying the Don/Joe banter, guys. ;-) )

Good eye, Don. I've notified the anthorities.

I love them! I've had few with the AN petal deformity. Most of them have traditional petals with pretty good plants under them.

A couple of Art Nouveau seedlings from the past...

The single one didn't even survive the summer in the ground...can't remember the other parent.

The double one is AN x R. carolina and maybe I should try to use it. It's out in the field and isn't super robust but survives.

That Art Nouveau results is great. Shows it is heritable, not just a defect in Art N. itself.

Re: Seedling

by roseseek » Wed Jun 05, 2019 1:02 pm

How fun! That's the first result from Art Nouveau with those petals I've seen yet.

A few pics, probably not in this order:

Art Nouveau x (First Impression x R. virginiana)

Aged anthers turn pink on my BFY x TUSPER seedling shown above

(Gina's Rose x R. virginiana) x Miracle on the Hudson, a non-repeater

Also a fringed bud cluster of the (GR x virg) x MOTH seedling before blossoms opened

It remind me the gallique ‘’La Belle Sultane’’, magnifique Joe!

No doubt the authorities will find them in a dumpster, emptied of their valuables.

Seems to be missing some anthers.

Really nice color.

Re: Seedling

by Larry Davis » Wed May 29, 2019 8:14 pm

Really looks good. Winter hardy? BS resistant?

Re: Seedling

by jbergeson » Wed May 29, 2019 9:19 am

Here is a new flower to open.

Blue for You x TUSPER (Tuscany Superb x Persian Yellow)

This is on a big shrub that wouldn't have been able to bloom outside so I brought it in for the winter in a pot.

Persian Yellow is somewhat doubtful as the true pollen parent of the pollen parent, since that seedling was way more disease resistant than either parent.

...or "Scooby"

Then come up with one to call "Shaggy"
