Yellow blend Mini-Flora.Registration name: TUCkpuzzleExhibition name:
Yellow blend, red edges. None to mild fragrance. 17 to 25 petals. Average diameter 3". Medium, double (17-25 petals), borne mostly solitary, exhibition bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
Medium, spreading, upright. Medium, semi-glossy, dark green foliage.
USDA zone 6b and warmer. Can be used for container rose, cut flower, exhibition or garden. Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom. Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
'Conundrum' and 'Summer Night' have been determined to be the same cultivar. The registration of Welnight (Summer Night) was rejected in September, 2007. See References.
Please note, for now, HelpMeFind maintains a separate 'Summer Night' listing in deference to Mr. Wells objection to this conclusion and continued attempt to register it.
