I've thought about buying MM for 2 years now, but every time I see her at the LGS, she looks more tannish than apricot. And I've never seen a hint of pink in her. she's gorgeous here.

I'm sure the color is due to the cool fall weather here. I looked several times to see for certain that the bud wasn't coming from branch of another rose.

So beautiful. I always wanted a MM to plant with my John F Kennedy Jr, Barbara Bush, and Mr. Lincoln, Apertif and Brandy.

Brandy was always tender here as is JFK. I think MM is out of St Patrick X Brandy or reverse. My Aperitif is lovely but gets a little willowy by fall. Best in the spring.
