This is not a rose that I would normally buy for myself but was given to me earlier this year as a gift .
And a 3' standard at that. Currently it's still living in a pot as I can't work out where to put it .
Previous flowers that I have seen on other plants and in pictures , seemed to show a flower with not all that many petals that looked pretty open and blowsy . So when this one opened it's first flower I expected it to open and blow in a day or so but it has suprised me .
I first photographed this rose when it was partly opened on the 5/10 and then again this afternoon and it's opening so slowly and holding it's colour and shape so well , I'm impressed .[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Another thing I like is the rough texturing of it's leaves
Any ideas as to where this would have come from ?

You will see a lot of variation in this rose throughout the year... sometimes there will be more yellow, sometimes all yellow, sometimes it will revery back to fully red. It's quite an unstable sport.

Very long line of HT and floribunda in this rose.. not much to suggest anything with such leaves... also got a lot of florist roses in its pedigree so it shouldn't blow real quick and should hold well in a vase Smile I'm with you though... not a rose I would buy for myself Smile
