Comments Coppery petals fade to a rosy shell pink as they unfurl around the high-centered blossom. One can find a better copper rose than this one, but this one is likely to retain a solid following for some time on account of its fragrance and disease resistance. It's especially loved on the east coast as a coppery colored rose that resists blackspot.
