Jocelyn's Oddity

Jocelyn's Oddity

Rose – 1998 – Dip – 25” – 5” – Mid – Br-3 – Bc-12 – Dorm – Creamy near white self with lime throat





































Jocelyn’s Oddity is an oddity. The flower is lovely, a nice cream with bright green in the throat. The flowers are narrow, but not narrow enough to be a spider. The foliage is senescent (dormant) and the plant is very hardy, but the foliage is not always attractive. However, it will throw nicer foliage in the seedlings when combined with partners with better foliage.

Jocelyn’s Oddity has been very rust resistant here as have many of its seedlings. It is useful for breeding pastel colored unusual forms and spiders with rust resistance.
