Wondering if anyone has any experience with this one. I was thrilled (and perplexed) to find my local grocery store selling this (from Certified) mislabeled as Angel Face. (As far as I know, only Ludwigs has rights to distribute Purple Lodge, though i'm not sure that they are doing so this year.) At any rate, I purchased one and promptly attempted some crosses upon it. Those crosses have aborted -- though to be fair, so have several unopened flower buds... (?) Not sure what is causing it, though temps definitely went up this past week. I'm wondering if PL normally works as a seed parent?

What are most common causes of bud drop? I do have the rose in a pot, but soil is amended with fertilizers, bone meal and green sand.
