This was a "what if?" cross I made two years ago. The seedling germinated in 2009 and spent the summer of 2009 in a seedling bed in my youngest sister's back yard in Newhall, California receiving very little water. It persisted, against all odds and was transplanted into a can with decent potting soil August, 2009. I've watched it for the past year, unsure if the tagged parentage could actually be correct.
The plant has flowered continuously, without pause, for a full year. The blooms are small, as is the plant, as if it is a miniature. It is totally without prickles, so far. Recently, it has begun generating long whips of growth, which, if the plant was budded, I'd think were root stock. Ironically, its flowers resemble those of 1-72-1 x (Dottie Louise X R. Fedtschenkoana) Seedling # 3 quite bit. The plants are totally different.
The plant is definitely not what I have seen from Glad Tiding seedlings.
