I believe that Scarlet Gem has pointed petals similar to it's sport Rosy Gem. This photo doesn't seem to show this feature, but maybe it's just the stage it was taken.

Does this rose sucker much on its own roots?

Not for me. Two plants own roots from 2011-2018.

I have just taken loads of cuttings of 'Leda' and Hebe's Lip'. It is standard practice in the U.K., where roses don't seem to sucker so much as they do in warmer countries, to plant a grafted plant deep enough to cover the graft union so that the sion can produce its own roots. There is a shoot growing next to 'Leda' and I can't decide whether it is from the actual rose or a sucker from the rootstock. I guess I will have to wait and see what it turns out to be next spring.

Sad, but looks about right.

Trying to get some width on those petals is going to dilute the species component considerably.

Wouldn't that be a case where self/sibling cross could probably be of use? Granted may be difficult if its a difficult breeder like bracteat. Just seems like a path thats often over looked and we see species crosses with flaws not in either parent used in further wide crossing before fixing flaws at the first species cross.

That's likely the most productive way forward. I've produced many bracteata derivatives. Most don't carry forward resistances. There are no guarantees when breeding roses. It takes luck and work and a lot of time to make progress.

I believe the petals are narrow on these photos as Burgundy has been experiencing severe drought since April. Rosa bracteata x chinensis has wider petals (see my pics).

Those narrow petals do vary somewhat with weather conditions.

Here's a case in point wherein the narrow petals carried into the second generation whilst staying diploid.

When integrating into triploid and tetra genomes no doubt the effect would be less pronounced.
