Investigating the Identity of Rose Varieties Utilizing RAPD Analysis
Article (magazine) published 2004 by Proceedings of Florida Horticultural Society.

Authored by Mary Caroniti, Angela Lewis, Nancy Morvillo
RAPD-PCR analysis was used to answer questions regarding the identity of certain varieties of roses. In addition the question of the identity of ‘Spray Cecile Brunner’/‘Bloomfield Abundance’ was investigated, indicating that the plant currently grown under both names is truly a sport of ‘Cecile Brunner’, and should be classified as ‘Spray Cecile Brunner’. The researchers conclude that RAPD-PCR can be a useful tool in determining the heritage of historic and modern roses.
Roses analyzed include “Bremo Double Musk”, ‘Xanadu’, numerous samples of “Found Noisettes”, “Katie Bell’s Devonianthus”, “Tradd Street Yellow” and ‘Devoniensis’.
