Rose Listing Omission

Si

I could not find this one, maybe because the search requires 3 characters. So, just in case ...

Right Rose, Right Place (2009) by Peter Schneider
p. 167
Si, Miniature
Introduced: Dot, Spain, 1957
The smallest rose in the world, and worth growing for its novelty value. 'Si' has white buds, shaded pale pink in cool weather, no larger than a kernel of wheat. The buds are much more charming than the insubstantial white flowers that follow. The plant reaches about 8" for me and offers repeat bloom very quickly. You'd need to use manicure scissors to deadbeat it, but I have never found this to be necessary as the plant is apparently sterile and puts no effort into setting seeds.

That is a difficult one Karl. I am sure we have discussed it before but perhaps only in my mind.
After scrolling through the alphabetical S lists; and also going into the breeder’s (Pedro Dot) list of roses, I found there is a third way of getting there. I searched with BEGINS WITH and asked for Si (
and got there. I’ve added the reference and moved the photos.

Deadbeat......was that your typo, or the author’s typo?

Thanks for your help. I didn't think of Si (. And now I feel stupid for not checking the breeder list.

Deadbeat ... I was a victim of autocorrect and poor proofing.

Zizhi - hybrid Rugosa

Plant Physiology and Biochemistry 135: 19-29 (Feb 2019)
RrGT1, a key gene associated with anthocyanin biosynthesis, was isolated from Rosa rugosa and identified via overexpression and VIGS
Xiaoming Sui et al.

"Interestingly, R. davurica is one of the parents of R. rugosa ‘Zizhi’, so we speculate that this reason might explain the similar expression patterns between both Rosa species. "

Publication - perhaps a planned article for next year with a date like that, Karl?

Patricia,
That is the official publication date for the journal. However, it was "Available online 22 November 2018."

Another tentative reference. I think this "Creamy Violet" entry was a misreading of 'Violette Cremers'.

La gloire Belgique, poème national vol. 1 page 298 1830
Notre semis de roses ne date guères que du commencement de ce siècle. Quelques belles variétés parurent parmi nous en 1807.
... Quatre autres furent des gains du sieur Cremers. La première, la *Violette Cremers*, porte son nom.
Ces amateurs sont de Bruxelles.

p.s.
I have not been able to verify the name "Cremers". I have, however, found a handful of men named "Cremer" who were living in Belgium at the time.

I don't want to add this as a reference until I get some feedback on the probability that 'Roi de pourpre' is the same as 'Roi des pourpres', and that the rose at hand was raised in Belgium rather than France.

La gloire Belgique, poème national vol. 1 page 298 1830
By Adrien Jacques Joseph Le Mayeur
