Gemini x Prairie Princess

Postby jturner » Sat Apr 08, 2017 12:14 pm

Gemini x Prairie Princess is one of my older seedlings that is blooming now. It is very healthy. Because it is tall and blooms on laterals, I think that it would best be grown as a climber. Prairie Princess is a Griffith Buck rose that was a parent of Carefree Beauty and Maytime, among other healthy roses.

Thanks for posting Jim, I love this,when you said, "older seedlings". Do you mean from last year's seedlings or a few years ago?

Well done Jim, great amount of blooms and by the look of the plant it should be easy to train.

I keep looking for a "like" button. I've been facebookized.

Lovely rose!

Very Pretty-looks like it should be fragrant. Out of curiosity, is it?

Thank you, Rob and Jackie!

Unfortunately not. I would have probably registered it by now if it was fragrant or ABP (Anything But Pink). I'll probably register it eventually because it is so healthy and showy. I've got quite a few seedlings from it this year. Perhaps some of them will be fragrant.
