Comments Its blossoms are an unusual color. Its a softish, reddish orange that can fade toward shell pink. According to Peter Beales, the fronts of the petals are shell pink and the backs a deep salmon. Evidently Betty Uprichard grows well and suits local tastes in northern parts of the UK and in Denmark. But Elizabeth Lawrence mentions it, too, in her book on southern gardening. And it makes the TenArky list of most fragrant roses. For a rose bred more than eighty years ago, Betty Uprichard is still in wide circulation.
