Comments If you spray anyway, and if you are good at providing high culture for roses, this might be your rose garden's piece d' resistance. New flowers are a rich mixture of soft orange and pink and are sometimes high-centered and spiralled. The orange buds fade toward pink and the petals reflex as they open. Some photos depict this rose as a reverse bicolor, with the front of the petal being pink and the back being apricot.
