Comments Some of McGredy's handpainted roses look like a riot of color. Sometimes that's what one wants. This rose is more subtle. There is a pleasing sensibility to this rose whose soft, coral orange nicely complementsthe orange or cream stripes. At times the effect could almost be mistaken for light and shadow projected onto the surface of a flower of a single color. The flowers start with a nice high-centered form which adds to the appeal. It's not one of McGredy's more widely distributed roses. We wonder why.
