Repeat flowering sport of Belle Amour
A cane on one of my neighbours Alba/Damask hybrid? Roses - Belle Amour - has been repeat blooming for 3 years - I budded 3 plants but the last 2 seasons they have not repeated? Like the cane do on the rosebush.
I do not understand this - they shold be repeating too - granted the plant are young still - but the repeat flowering trait from the sporting cane - should be reproduced. We have have tried to root some cuttings - but there is precious little lateral cane left and they have noot rooted and died during the winter. I will give it another try to bud again, when we see it repeatflowers again this - year - it may be the last chance we get to try to propagate the sport. Can repeat flowering rose sports revert back to the same singleflowering parent? I understand that it happens on one plant - but the 3 of them?.
