How can Bibi Maizoon or Bibi Mezoon be in the second, third and fifth generation of this rose?
that has to be a mistake....
Oh no, I understand now: This rose is a result of in- or linebreeding.
I had to look better!

I see that has put this rose's ploidy as a diploid. I would like to know where they got that info... it seems way too fertile to be a diploid.

Check the REFERENCES tab on the rose page and you will find our source of information.

Thank you... I found it, and now we're talking about it at rose hybridizers. We think there has to be something wrong, and somebody may actually test out the ploidy of some of these roses (especially R. kordesii, which is listed as a diploid and not a tetraploid.) thank you very much... Enrique

Hi, anon. I'm traveling and don't have access to my ploidy spreadsheet to confirm the references reporting Constance Spry as diploid. I know that in the case of Constance Spry, one source of the ploidy information was a poster on the Rose Hybridizer's Forum. If the information is time critical, I suggest you post an inquiry there, as someone may be able to confirm the datum.

I have noted that 'Belle Amour' has that same aniseed fragrance.
I don't know its ploidy.

Re: Modern Roses 12 reference to: 'Constance Spry® ' syn. Ausfirst, Constanze Spry.

Does this publication refer to it as Constanze?
