First time dabbing pollen. Memphis x Emerald Bay. I guess it didn't work because the bloom fell off after 2 days.
I used pollen from the freezer. Last fall I got it off Emerald Bay, who bloomed shortly after being planted.
It's exciting! And it was easy! I so hoped I would have beginners luck. Well, I will try it again, because Emerald Bay and Memphis are blooming again! This is not my dream cross, but it's practice until I get less nervous.
Here is my beloved Rose F Kennedy. Kinda hard to tell, but she's actually sending up a second scape!
Some rotten critter ruined my one and only bloom on Lillian's Vapor Trail. Wouldn't you know.
