Are red stamens common? This seedling only has five petals but the stamens are red. Is this something special?

Not uncommon but always welcome.

Thank you Robert, think I'll keep it and see how it develops. It is my first seedling with red stamens.

Absolutely. I love red stamens. I find stamens that go dark very unappealing.

I know this isn't a rose question but I could use the advise. I love foxgloves and grew more of them than usual this year. They looked great when they were in full bloom. Now that it's mid July they are done and all the blooms are fading except for a few stragglers on the tops. Many of them are falling over. I would like to clear them out to clean up the garden for summer blooming perennials that are coming on and the next flush of roses. However I would like to save the seeds for reseeding/winter sowing. The problem is that the seeds are not even close to ready and it seems like that process is taking a long time. I really want to collect the seeds but don't want to have foxglove mummies in the garden all summer. Any advice would be appreciated.

I have just noticed a pretty fleck in a bloom of what I believe to be Lucky Piece. Could this be a sport and if so what should I do about it.

I have often wondered about the 'Petal Fleck' disease that New Zealand coped with years ago.
Your rose might be a sport, but I would consider the possibility that it isn't.
I think petal fleck is only transmitted through cuttings or budwood, but I could be wrong.

Thanks for your quick reply, I have uploaded a pic taken in the dark. I'd appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.

I am sorry Phil. Probably only a New Zealander who could remember petal fleck could say yea or nay. But I suspect petal fleck could be in Australia - many Australians have visited that exquisite country.

Looks great this Madame Abel Chatenay seedling, was this an open pollination?
Looks as if pollinated by an Austin.
I like the use of an early HT. Didn't know, that it still existed.

yes, it was an open pollination and you may be quite right about the austin - abraham darby and charles austin are growing close to mme abel chatenay.

You might open a breeder listing at Your account, when You click on Breeders under People in the left column.
And register/upload this rose on HMF under Your breeder-name.
Does the plant behave well as for diseases and how is the scent?

it is doing quite well, despite it´s tender looks, as far as i can tell by now, for it is only in it´s second year. the plant itself grows a bit like a tea; it has good foliage, too, like it´s mother´s, but prone to mildew - no blackspot by now. the flowers aren´t as big as the pictures may implicate; they are about 6 cm in diameter. i myself cannot recognise any scent, but other people say there is some tea scent (i´m not very good at recognising tea-scent in general)

Your seedling sounds promising and it survived its first years and winters.
Maybe once established the flowers might get bigger and mildew might get less a problem (..or, I hope not, worse).
How does Madame Abel Chatenay behave herself in the Austrian climate with the cold winters (You described at Abraham Darby)?
