Default C. Bouncing Rosie (= loddigesii x Haiku Rose)

Long story. When I first started to expand my collection, with a view towards starting a hobby business, one of my first wholesale purchases included 5 NBS seedlings of the above cross (purchased since I love loddigesii, and hybrids showing heavy loddigesii influence). After blooming a few of them, I got the breeder's permission to name the cross; the name I chose is actually based on a neighbor's daughter.

All 5 plants showed the '1-2' growth pattern, where each lead produced one new growth in the spring, and when near mature, that growth would produce two more in the fall. The plants then bloomed twice, first in January on the early growth, and again in February on the younger growths.

I lost all my plants in the Dec 2017 freeze. However, I had sold a division to a friend, so at least that one plant still existed. He gave it back to me in late 2018; I divided it, and returned a piece to him.

While he is a fine grower (with several AOS cultural awards), in his old wintergarden growing space, he didn't get this plant to grow to it's potential. It has taken me close to 2 years to get it there, and it is now producing to the level that I know it can (with 14-16" tall PBs):
