Druschki X Kaiserin. It was a few years after Frau Karl Druschki appeared, that a rose nursery owner from Northern Germany visited me to see my seedlings. On this occasio, we also contemplated which crossings could being success and what goals should one set for oneself. In these discussions we also came to the opinion that a seedling which combines all the good characteristics of Druschki and Kaiserin could be of highest importance. I have then worked many years in this direction and had hunderts of plants from this combination, but never achieved the desired result. I had indeed several descendants where one could see that they had Druschki and Kaiserin as parents, but they had no advantages. It is very strange that a seedling which one can classify as the best, can produce a bloom of noble form, but is less than both parents in size. In any case it seems that the blood of Coquette de Lyon which has only medium size blooms is effective here. Jacobs.
