Well here"s one my big fails,waited 4 years to see this bloom red as the first bloom appeared today,the plants dwarf like stella'd'oro with blooms about 3 times larger,nice big bloom size I like though; only with a phssst,and yick. What a bummed out dissapointment.
I have a lot of parent plants of plants that have already been hybridized, I am not a pro so this could one of yours one mine or anybodies. Grandma really liked it and it has a nice fluorescence about it in evening light. I just expected to much after such a long wait to see the bloom.
here's a better pic.
YES That is what I am saying. I tried several pollinating crosses this season recently also.Only like as before, mostly those pollinating attempts are from plants that have already been cross pollinated and named by someone previously.
The only seed pods have developing are the parent plants of peach's and dreams(?), it will be interesting to see what happens. Only a little backyard fun with the flowers!
Hi...I was going to say the same thing as Cindy. There is a whole lot of research to be done when it comes to hybridizing genetics, but a whole lot of fun to be a backyard hybridizer! Keep plugging along but don't be taken aback at what you get...it's part of the game, the anticipation of seeing what your efforts produce!
Join the group-----------I planted a couple hundred rosea seeds in the Fall of 2009 and they bloomed this Summer---yellow. melon, orange, sherbet orange----three to four feet high and all sorts of spiders. What did I do wrong???1----------Weedy The self seeders like this looked better!
