Odd Rose Growth

July 2008
American Rose;Jul/Aug2008, Vol. 39 Issue 14, p14
The article offers tips on dealing with manifestations of abnormal rose growth. Suckers, described as shoots of growth originating from the roots of a rose plant, should be removed as close as possible to the root from which they merged. Causes of blind shoots, or rose canes with no flower buds at the top, include cool or fluctuating weather, shortage of light and insect damage.

    The variation in seagrass morphology and the magnitude of leaf self-shading within the canopy of Thalassia testudinum, were compared among nine sites in a fringing reef lagoon. We found a significant variation in the growth-form of T. testudinum reflected in a 5.4-fold variation in the...

    Etiolated and light-grown plantlets obtained from potato shoot cultures were shown to perform vigorous tropic movements. Unilateral blue irradiation actively induced phototropic curvature of the shoots toward the light source, although etiolated plantlets required ten times longer stimulation...

    A definition of the term "leaf posture" is presented. It refers to the characteristic position of the foliage leaves on the stem axis which shows the plant habit of the species. This may contribute to optimal utilization of light and photosynthesis.

    The article features the Rosa Macy's Pride in Chicago, Illinois. It states that the flower burst forth early in May with loads of medium, pointed, lemony buds, a few tinged with a slight streak of pink. It blooms reliably from June through September in normal year and often beyond. It produces...

    In order to better understand the role of nutrient supplies in determining the prevalence of plant defense types, we investigated the theoretical relationships between ecosystem N supply and the net C gain of shoots that were undefended or defended in one of three ways: (1) by N-free chemical...

    Strigolactones are newly identified plant hormones, shown to participate in the regulation of lateral shoot branching and root development. However, little is known about their effects on biological processes, genes, and proteins. Transcription profiling of roots treated with GR24, a synthetic...
