Art Nouveau x FIVI3 descendants

Last year I posted a pic of the once-blooming seedling Art Nouveau x FIVI3 (First Impression x R. virginiana).

I used it in both directions hoping to recover rebloom. I used All the Rage a lot with it because I hoped ATR would allow the warm colors to come through and I hoped that ATR's very large petals might bring a greater chance of getting decent sized blossoms with the Art Nouveau petal "defect."

Anyways, I'm happy to see a strong percentage of juvenile bloom from ANFIVI. The petal defect is interesting. Some blossoms have no petals at all, some are very stunted, and some are fairly normal with no sign of the defect. I think it's just a numbers game to get just the right amount of defect so you get decent sized petals with the stripe. So far no clear winners.

Some seedling pics and the last one is ANFIVI's blossom from last year.
