I have no memory of planting it and no way I will be able to find the trunk to read the tag till next winter.
SOLVED: Anyone know the name of this one??
Kell I don't have a name for your lovely rose. But I want it. I love the colors! I'll do a little looking and see what I can find.
I like it. It also looks like my rio samba, but then it changes to red...wish it would just stay like your picture, and not turn red...
what ever it is it's pretty..I love the colors..Zuzu talked me into buying Charisma,well she posted photo's...lol...
Jody, I would talk you into buying Rio Samba too. It's a great rose and more vigorous than most modern roses (except when the gophers eat it, which is what happened to mine). I just bought two more this year.
Okay, that looks nothing like Charisma. The colors are right for Sheila's Perfume, but the shape is wrong.
kell, those are beautiful photo's...your gardens are saturated in color...
Don't crawl around in there. You'll hurt yourself and the roses. Let it be a surprise later. It looks like some of the helpmefind pictures of Rio Samba, Rainbow Sorbet, and Sheila's Perfume, but not enough like any of them to make an ID.
wow kell whats the red rose with hints of pink towards the center?
Don't ask Kell. She'll tell you it's Mon Amour. It's actually Mon Cheri.
LOL Zuzu, I was actually going to say Mon Cheri. So there!!! I caught the other day I had called it Mon Amour but haven't had time to go back and find where. It is because it is my true amour.
I was telling Alan I saw one similar to it at Regan's the other day, Sundance. Though I had never seen Sundance before nor have I ever bought it. Another rose I never planted in my garden! A mismarked one for sure.
Now I need to go find Centennial Star so I can see what that one looks like in comparison in person.
This is what it looks like now. A gaud rose for sure.
Well here you are kell...I was beginning to worry about you...I thought maybe you got lost searching for a rose in a foreign country or something...lol...
Speaking of orange, I saw this one this morning at the farm store and it looked orange too and when it fades it still looks orangish.
Anybody grow this, About Face?
I have Tuscan Sun this year and the buds look wonderful but then it washes out to a washed out pink. I don't care for that.
Hi Jody........I wish I had gone on such a great buying trip. LOL. I have been having fun running around. Spent 2 days with Dr. Don and his great wife Pam and saw Zuzu again. We had a ball.
Joann, we even talked about you. When we saw Europeana at Filoli I mentioned you!! I always think of you and your daughter's wedding when I see this one. Dr. Don is so fond of it also. Dr. Don told me he knows and loves you thru Dahlias! And it turned out he also trades and likes so much one of my best Dave's friends in the world, Susie - Calalily. Such a small Dave's World. LOL
I have seen About Face at nurseries, and I always like it. It is a slight rose bloom but I like the colors so much.
reminds me a bit of Love and Peace.
I have About Face and this is it's first full year. It seems to be quite well in not-so-ideal sun exposure.
I was just looking at the Amity Heritage Roses site and saw a picture of Tequila Sunrise. Could this be your rose?
I really enjoyed this site, http://www.amityheritageroses.com/HybridTeasN.html
I will have to look for Tequila Sunrise to see how close it looks in person.
Did you notice the "Pure Mystery" (unknown) Hybrid Tea rose?? Now that is quite a rose.
Seedpicker, great shot of About Face.

Did you guys notice the one called Irish Creme on Jomejamo's link? What interesting colors that is!!!
Oh Taylor I think I would like Tequila Sunrise, red and orange is one of my favorite color combos. You should see my master bathroom. Red walls with a light tan bead board wainscoating and orange accessories, like candles and towels. I know it sound gruesome but it really is quite pretty if I say so myself.
The 'Pure Mystery' is beautiful. I have a new 'Honeysweet' rose sitting on my porch in a pot. Pure Mystery looks alot like it, only with a quartered look. I like apricot, and orange/pink roses.
I like Irish Creme too. I just bought Hot Cocoa this year, so include 'brownish' on the list.
I just read in a gardening book that for collectors, brown was 'in' but the author had given up on growing carex buchannii because everyone kept asking if it was dead. Ha on me! I just bought three plants this year...
Here's a picture of one of my container with the brown sedge grass (Carex buchananii) in it. See the tufts of grass in the back?
I'm really not that great of a gardener. I read a lot and know a lot that way, but in practice it's hit and miss. I like the way the container turned out, I think I'll call it a hit.
I think you should call it a hit too. It's a great combination.
I love that Honeysweet.
Just went to check my Tequila Sunrise but all that's there is the rose hips . A little windy here the last week
Close to Josef's coat but not enought red/yellow .
Thanks ZuZu, that's a great compliment coming from you and your beautiful gardens.
Beautiful container, I love all the heucheras and osteos. What a great combo with a clay pot.
Zuzu, what are you calling honeysweet?
