Comments There are at least four roses registered under this name, none flamingo in color. The Kordes rose in question was bred for the florist trade and therefore has thick petals and stiff form. The petals usually show a pale pink, but they may occasionally approach shell pink. Botanica suggests that it is a good florist's rose because of its good substance and quick repeat.
