A beautiful and unusual China Rose. Pointed buds open into single 3" blooms (petals 5) which go through a myriad of color changes. Starting out flame and aging to copper, honey yellow orange and red with all the colors on the bush at the same time. Open blooms resemble butterflies, providing an exotic effect. An outstanding continual blooming shrub or depending on how your garden favors it, a climber. An early bloomer.

Excellent!Review by Mary
Very pleased with the packaging of the roses. I bought two Mutabilis to flank each side of the driveway at the front gate. They get full Texas sun all day and are blooming profusely. I can't wait to see how big they get next year. (Posted on 9/5/2017)
Perfect!Review by Lori
My husband and I are very happy with the purchase of our "China Roses." Our landscape architect recommended these for our new home and we looked in all the local nurseries for them with no luck. I found them on Heirloom Roses and placed the order immediately. The two plants were packaged and protected very well. They look very healthy and in good condition Also included were instructions for planting. We put them in right away and now anxiously await their bloom.

BEAUTIFUL!Review by Joan
I bought this rose from Heirloom roses in February of 2013. It bloomed 2 weeks after planting and has been in bloom ever since. You might say it is a bit robust here in Phoenix since it is now over 6 feet tall and about 5 feet wide. I will be pruning it in the spring. (Posted on 5/17/2014)
