Comments There is a huge amount of variability to the color of this rose. It is easy to find photos of it as a sort of (ugly) washed-out orange, a very attractive gold or pale apricot, pink, ivory, or white. Some of its colors look a little wierd or unnatural. Whatever color the blooms start out as they fade toward buff, then fall off cleanly. There is good bloom continuity. That it is not rated very highly by ARS suggests that it might do better in Europe.
