Grondbreaking work on Rose Genome!

French scientists have sequenced the Rose genome in a groundbreaking study. Although some work has been done, this study is far more complete. The data provide the genetic sequencing that determines factors such as fragrance, disease resistance, water requirements, and repeat bloom. The scientists used 'Old Blush' in their work.


Very exciting stuff for hybridizers, growers, and all rose lovers.

    This is good news. It's just a beginning but could lead to much more. I wish there was a DNA data base too so you could get your roses IDed, lol! But that's just a day dream.

    Now I'm daydreaming of bi-colored roses (blue and white) smelling of old-rose damask.
