Thanks Michael. We've added the pollen parent - with notation.

Yeah, good plan. It is bizarre, but its possible. I was expecting the other parent to have an orange or scarlet background. For example, Olympiad has a white eye zone at the base, whereas Ingrid Bergman has a yellow eye zone at the base, which is more typical of reds descending from the yellow and orange spectrums. But, whatever.

The growth architecture is similar, with those erratic stems hovering over the squat, wide plant type. Genetics can be weird. I have a Yellow Brick Road x Aunt Honey, that is a white HT.... I could list many, many examples, so maybe I shouldn't question this patent.

The parentage of 'Criterion' follows the same pattern, and the end product also seems similar. So I guess its all possible.

Does anyone speak German well enough to maybe email them to confirm? This parentage bothers me a lot. While I do see signs that its possible, such as the growth pattern (Ingrid Bergman easily throws stem-on-stem, which is a china-poly trait), it still seems very odd to me.

You mean "...speak well enough Dänish..." I guess?

Yes. Sorry, it was late. I had Tauntau stuck in my head.

Still one of the best red HTs out there. Very easy to grow, very consistent in everything it does, and healthy for its class type.

I agree, except for fragrance, in my opinion that would be the only element on which it could be improved.

I went to a nursery in Filmore, CA when temperatures were over 100 degrees Fahrenheit for the sole purpose of seeing which roses were doing well. My daughter wanted a red rose. The nursery had several Ingrid Bergman plants showcased out front. Other red roses were faded and suffering in the heat. The bloom form is not perfect once more than half open, which is why I held off purchasing this rose for so long. Overall Ingrid Bergman is a great garden rose for my hot, dry area.

It does very well in my 6a (sea-)climate-zone too.
Almost never without flowers and with a good health for an HT.
And in my modest opinion: The flowers ain't that bad!
Only the lack of scent... but that is compensated by all the other outstanding features.

That's good to hear, Jay-Jay. As long as there is a fresh scent, that's fine by me, because lack of scent usually means long vase life. I'll look forward to blooms this spring.

It is a little bit "soap-like" scented and has a very long vase-life!

At Cal Poly Pomona rose garden (near Los Angeles) Ingrid Bergman is stunning. Most hybrid teas bear flowers on stick-up branches, but this makes rounded hummocks of large blooms that are seen from afar.
