Did We Make Our Own Hybrids?

My mom and I are always making cuttings of each other roses, and actually have gotten some nice plants from each other! She gave me two plants started from cuttings that we thought were Oregold and Brandy, although the colors are right, they look like Austin Roses (lucky me!) She has MANY roses in her garden, including English style ones.My new plants are just beautiful! Now that they've bloomed, she's jealous & wants me to make cuttings back for her! Did she make her own hybrids????

Not from cuttings. Those might just be the way the blooms look on the young plants, and they will fill out as the plant matures. You won't get a hybrid just from cutting, you have to do some kind of pollination.

RE: Did We Make Our Own Hybrids?

Making cuttings is essentially 'cloning'. The plant will be identical to the plant it was cut from. As Diane points out the bloom is probably different on your immature plant. Sorry to be a killjoy. Cheers, Collin.
