Comments Officially the colors are Red and Silver; but in most cases the silver is really pink. This rose appears to be Jackson & Perkin's response to Mon Cheri or Paradise - A pink rose whose outer petals darken in the sun to red. It has good form and thick petals which please rose exhibitors. It has some fragrance. As is frequently true of roses in this vein, when it works, there is an enchanting sort of watercolour charm to the rose. When it doesn't work, it is almost gratuitously ugly.
