An openly pollinated seedling of Baby Love that has somewhat rugosa type leaves and is very thorny, much like rugosa itself. Hopefully this one will have yellow blossoms. So far no diseases.

Hi Rob! That's great!! I hope it is yellow too and would be a new option for a rose like 'Topaz Jewel'.

Hello Rolf. The only rugosa types that I have this summer are Ruglauca, Nyveldt's White, Metis and MORjerry. Ruglauca is situated closest to Baby Love. It will be interesting to see what the bees may have done for me.

It'll be interesting to see how that one turns out, Rob. It looks like it could be x Ruglauca.

That's what I was thinking Joe. It would be cool to have some shade of yellow and more than 5 petals.

Update: A pic from this season

It's slow growing with smaller leaves and disease free so far. It may turn out to be a miniature rugosa. I"m hoping that I'll have blooms next season, the 2 year mark.

I tried loading 3 pics and 3 would show up in preview but when submitted only one shows up.
