Shining Flare

Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Gold Badge Shining Flare is not a big rose: it appears to get not much bigger than two feet in every direction. It does not take up much room, but it does command attention. The blossoms are produced in huge clusters. They appear in an unusual bright orange shade and fade toward pale pink. The silky texture and reflexed petal tips all add to the appeal.

There is ample foliage and it is extremely shiny. We know nothing of its history or provenance, but we do hope to see more of it.
