Comments It's white flowers have red edges and yellowish centers. It is all very cheery, especialy when framed by purplish new growth. Betty Boop is a reasonably good grower and is not especially prone to fungal disease. The plant can be free with its flowers. At its best, Betty Boop can be the very center of attention in the garden. But it's also a rose that will not fit into every garden; the more other roses you have - especially old roses - the less likely it is to fit. Betty Boop's are so floppy, so informal, so crammed with color that it can seemingly have no connection with our concept of a rose.
