The color is a little deeper and richer in the fall - more of a coral pink than the softer pinks of springtime. If any of you know the proper name of this rose, please let me know. One note of caution - this rose is full of thorns, on the stems and little thorns on the leaves. I had to wear a pair of gloves in order to comfortably handle the stems.
