Comments Red and white striped flowers are flushed with yellow. When it works to perfection, and yellow pigment strongly colors the whole rose, the effect is extraordinary or sublime. Otherwise it can be strange or ugly: cream flowers striped with muddy magenta, for example. There is a climbing sport which appears to be more popular than the original. Continuity of bloom is good and so is health.
