Comments One of the persistent habits of mind that a few modern rose breeders with high-powered computing tools have only recently begun to overcome is the idea that the offspring of an above average rose is a great deal more likely to be above average than the offspring of two carefully chosen average roses. The seed parent of this rose, Pierrine, is rated 8.8 by ARS members which, if it were a measure of intelligence would make it President of Harvard University. This rose, by contrast, rates 7.6, or solid B student at community college. It makes orangish flowers that fade quickly to pink. And has dropped out of circulation.
