The tests

In the first year I protect the plants against freezing. In the following years the bushes from the programme "Róże dla Polski" (Roses for Poland) don't have any form of protection. I don't use any chemicals in the test fields. The last two winters were not severe and if I had known that earlier I wouldn't have covered the bushes at all. However, our winters are usually not that mild and they naturally test the plant's resistance and thus they act as a means of selection. The selection, it seems, is the most important part of the process. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Below I present the varieties that are currently being tested.

The rose in the picture (on the left) is now participating in 'Konkurs na Imię' (A naming competition) organised by Mrs Maja Popielarska gardeners from the program "Maja w Ogrodzie".

Naming

It is a common practice when giving the names of parents to name the seed parent first.

Korpriwa x Fr. Roger

Korpriwa x Fr. Roger

The structure of the corolla is similar to that of the iris. A trough-shaped petal at the stem changes into a spoon-shaped one. It's an interesting odd variety with fleshy and springy petals.

 

This seed perent is not cyclamen. A true surprise. Will it transmit characteristics traits of species to next generations?

Korpriwa x Fr.Roger (4)

 

The petals and setals in the whorl are layered but do not lie on each other. The external petals are much bigger than those closest to the pistil. That trait is very important to me.

Korpriwa x Fr.Roger (6)We can see in action the dominant gene of the grandparents 'Fr.Roge' – the parents of Constance Spry. It seems that the 'Belle Isis' gene ,leans back the petals of the external whorl in almost all of the Austin roses.

The parent Fr.Roge - 'Morgengruss' thanks to its unusually long petals highlighted that trait. 'Korpriwa' was selected to be the seed parent and one of the reasons for that is the fact that the outer petals are much bigger from the inner ones. If only it is possible to decrease the size of the inner petals of the calyx/cup? without changing the exisitng form:)
