Oriental Charm

Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Oriental Charm Acccording to the label this Oriental Charm was bred by avante garde breeder Edmund LeGrice in 1960. The roses on this bush opened as a chocolaty orange, and as the yellow pigment faded they turned more of a mauve-tan. The blossoms are two inches across, or slightly more, and they are borne in nice clusters. The foliage is highly glossy and it has a bit of a blue tinge that perfectly sets off the flowers.

ARS members rate Oriental Charm 7.7.

Botanica's photo and description make the rose more pure orange, give it fewer petals, and show prominent yellow stamens. Botanica's is bred by Duehrsen. Either rose is completely unique and beautiful. We'll keep investigating.
