Seedling(s) to share

I have a few plants to share of a seedling that might have merit in breeding hardy, healthy yellows.

Code name "1173".

Yellow Brick Road x (Lemon Fizz x R. carolina)

Fairly double golden yellow blossoms - see pic.
Reblooming. (see negatives)
Seems very healthy.
Solidly crown hardy in Zone 3b.
A great seed parent, forming fat hips with many seeds.

Although it is a reblooming rose, it is quite hesitant to put out blossoms later in the summer. Instead it sends out tall, non-blooming shoots.
It seems to pass that late-season reluctance on to its seedlings.

No promises, but send me a pm with your name and address. Please note if it would be ok to ship yet this fall or if spring would be better. These are very substantial bare root plants.

I also may have a plant or two of P42FIVI, which is Peters #42 x FIVI3. Peter's #42 is a Morden Research Station rescue that is, I believe, a polyantha crossed with L83. FIVI3 is my seedling of First Impression x R. virginiana. P42FIVI is notable for incredibly lush foliage and vigorous growth. Some rebloom, but not a lot and only a minority of seedlings will rebloom. Will try to find a pic.

Here is a pic of the other seedling. I may or may not have enough plants to share of this one, but if you're interested drop me a line.

I sent you a PM about 1173, but it got stuck in my outbox - definitely would be interested in it!

Love the coloring on that second one, and the pedigrees are interesting on both of them, Joe.
I am curious as to folks' go-to roses to breed for more floriferousness?
(My best rebloomers in the past have actually included two yellows: Limoncello (which I unfortunately no longer have) and Carefree Sunshine, but I cannot vouch for progeny of either in that context... yet.)
