Parents of my Roses'
‘Pascali’ is the pollen parent of 'Canadian White
Star' and 'Shades of Pink' This rose is very well known and does not need an
introduction. I used it a lot in my first 15 years of working with HT’s
My first success with ‘Pascali’ came in the early seventies with ‘Blanche
Mallerin’ (white HT) to produce my first rose introduced in the eighties,
the ‘Canadian White Star’. Up to the late seventies I used ‘Pascali’ extensively
Hood’ (HMsk). Over several years I made thousands of crosses on ‘Robin
Hood’ and only produced one Floribunda, the ‘Shades of Pink’ in
hundreds of hours of work. For more ‘Robin Hood’ information see “Shades
of Pink” page.
‘Pink Meidiland’, S pb, Meilland
1984, produced my second floribunda, ‘Scarlet
Pearl’ in 1993 with an unnamed HT seedling as pollen parent. See ‘Scarlet
‘Mount Shasta’ Gr. w, Swim & Weeks
1963, is another seed parent on which I did close to a thousand crosses
the seventies. Out of hundreds
seedlings produced, only one HT seedling was worth keeping. With ‘Super
Sun’ as pollen parent, it has a purple/cream bicolor. I named it ‘Manpurple’ (registered
code name). When trying to trace back both parents, to find out where the
purple came from, I came to a dead end. For more information see the ‘Super
Sun’ & ‘Manpurple’ pages.
‘Rise 'n' Shine’ my, Moore
1977, was the very first miniature rose that I bought. In 1988 I budded
it onto a tree rose and in 1989 I had 105 blooms on it and pollinated
every one with ‘Manpurple’.
Finally, after 15 years of trial and error the purple/cream bicolor came
through. For more information see the ‘Manpurple’ & ‘Rubies’n’Pearls’ pages.
'June Laver’ dy, Laver 1989, has
been my best
miniature seed sarent by
far, using ‘Rubies’n’Pearls' as pollen parent
in thousands of crosses in the nineties up to the present. It has produced
my best roses
in over 30 years of hybridizing. For more about ‘June Laver’ see
the ‘Rubies’n’Pearls’ & ‘Golden
