Type: Grandiflora

Unique among bi-color roses, the reverse coloring demands a double-take. Each petal bears darker bronzy-orange on the outside and lighter golden-orange on the inside. As the, pointed buds open into full, cupped, globular, old-fashioned blooms, an array of shades dances and blends, and the effect is exotic. Color combined with clean, deep green foliage make this robust, upright 2005 AARS winner worth second and third looks. Tall, armed with thorns / prickles, upright, well-branched. Large, semi-glossy, dark green foliage. Very vigorous
Petals 26-30, Bloom 4"

One of my favoritesReview by Carole

I am so pleased with this lovely rose. It's difficult to describe because of the change in color as the blooms age. It's gorgeous at all stages, from bud to maturity. (Posted on 9/15/2017)
A glorious grandifloraReview by Taffeta

The photo displayed is very misleading. This rose has no washed out colors. The buds look like glowing embers, and they open to display their unusual reverse coloring of deep coral and yellow. When full blown, they settle into a rich orange red.
I have four in my rose garden, one in ground and three potted. In the ground, the rose is a large, bushy 6 footer. Enjoy! (Posted on 5/17/2017)
