Another shot of my seedling
Rosynut: this picture is even more wickedly beautiful than the last one. The color is immense. I love it!!
Really lovely, rosynut!
I love it! Reminds me almost of an Austin rose :) great work and congrats!!!
The centre of the blooms gets much darker towards the end of its life which is about 2 weeks in cool weather and 10 days in very hot weather like we are having now. At the end it looks almost artificial with the lighter edges and the very definate seration of the colors. The plant is healthy, vigorous but stays a bit compact most probably because I keep on cutting stems to try and make cuttings, unsuccesful so far.
10 days in very hot weather for blooms is good
