Hybridization is a hot topic today. Whether talking about fashion, music or flowers, mixing different styles and varieties, unexpected combinations and hybridization are hot topics. People do not simply prefer products experiments, things that different styles, like the world we live in is becoming more diverse, complex and challenging to combine. In horticulture is the hybridization of the term that describes the transplantation of two different varieties of plants, with the aim of a third variety, the so-called “hybrid”, which is responsible for the characteristics of its’ “parents”.
Many of the roses are hybrids that exist today. The hybrid tea, for example, are one of the most popular types of roses. They are elegant, slim, medium size, enter the size and fragrant flowers that will last from spring until frost and used both as roses and as cut flowers. There was the early nineteenth century and were the first class of roses called “modern rose garden.” Hybrid tea were (“remontant” wrong translation of the French word describes repeated flowering) by hybridization between hybrid called “eternal”, which was dominant in Victorian England obtained with the Tea Rose (Rosa x odorata, also known as China rose with a tea fragrance as the ‘fragrance reminiscent of Chinese black tea).
The granting of a new variety of rose requires passion, patience, perseverance, knowledge and a little luck. In theory, you can try to get a new variety of rose, but things are not so simple. Rose hybridization can take place both by sexual and asexual reproduction. Cross-pollination is the method sexual crossing two varieties to get a third, while the asexual method called graft. During pollination requires special knowledge and planning, the graft is to be done easier and easier by the fans. However, there is no doubt that the probability of success is greater when reading specialized books to better understand the process.
Regardless of the method chosen, the first thing we need to know what will look the new hybrid. Accordingly, we must carefully select parents who can provide the desired properties available – this is the crux of the hybridization, as there are many possibilities. If we, for example, pink petals of a flower in a rose bush climbing, we can treat the two hybrid varieties. If we get a bicolor flower, let’s try two hybrid varieties with different colors. The “children” omitted parental characteristics, but each “child” is unique in its way as the genetic material (chromosomes) combine different every time. Each gene carries a certain genetic trait that is unique.

If you’ve ever looked at a flower garden, not only its beauty that you have captured, but also your overall layout. There may be some tulips and roses along with other flowers or plants. You can also stayed there have views. May begin on one side and moves the eye downward, or vice versa. Now, making music is very similar to floral arrangements. You can combine different elements to make everything beautiful. There is a natural tendency of the human mind to sort out the mess and art from nothing.
What is pleasant to hear in the ear, is the symmetry. Flowers caught arrangement, not only for its beauty but because they composed and arranged a nice all – something the eye and the mind to reach and reflect. We went with a sense of accomplishment, because someone took the time to bring order to the chaos. Someone organizes various elements to create art. Well, that’s what musicians when they realize it or not to do. But instead of flowers, notes and chords are used.
Instead of a glass, musical form is used to keep the notes and chords. Music is an art difficult because the elements do not come together so easily. Music is slippery and ephemeral, but if we learn to use the tools of repetition and contrast, started some order to the chaos. Chaos is good and has its place in the improvisation, but for those who want to compose their own music, then it’s a good idea to learn the tools of the trade. The florist should know how to create a balance between color and shape – the overall look of the layout. The composer must also be a balance, but uses musical materials – chords, notes, phrases, etc.
Then placed next to a frame. An arrangement of flowers can be large or small, depending on the size of the ship. Similarly, a new age piano music used to be long or short depending on the amount of contrast and repetition.
