Question about branching

Posted by ngraham z6 KY (My Page) on

I mentioned yesterday how one of my seedlings has lots of buds. I counted 22 & 18 yesterday, but I went out this morning & realized I left off a branch on one scape & actually has at least 27 buds. Looks like there may still be more developing so possibly 30. I don't know if you can tell much by my picture, can you tell me how many branches this would be?

Wonderful branching! I will leave it to the experts to tell you how many branches there are. The flower is very pretty also!

RE: Question about branching

Ask Debra and Floota and Julia. I know they know all about them...Lynx too, Avedon, Ellie, probably Rita for sure. I know I have misse some names here. Experts.

I have decided I know nothing. All of my blathering about blooming slowing down and peak being over...then I walk out to a bloom fest this morning. I know nothing!

This may or may not actually jibe with the AHS definition, but my opinion is that there are 3 true side branches and some top branching. In any case, that scape has excellent branching.

RE: Question about branching

You have three-way branching. Whatever branching is on top - (y (two) or w(three) - counts as ONE for the official bud count. So you have a y for top branching and then two side laterals for three-way branching.

RE: Question about branching

Thanks everyone! I've often wondered about branching, it seems very confusing. I really wasn't sure whether to call it 3 or 4 :) I'm just very excited, I don't get bud counts like this in my garden. Could be a one time thing though. I have some plants that supposedly get 30 or so but I'm lucky to get 20 buds.

I would be super excited if I had those bud counts too! Twenty-seven on a scape is terrific! The most buds I've ever gotten on one of my seedlings is 23, and that was in year we had the flood.

I'd certainly be doing the happy dance about that one. A pretty face on a great plant. What could be better? I'll never figure out branching either.
