Anyone grow this rose? HMF states that she's an apricot colored rose, from a "Livin' Easy" & "Graduation Day", but the two pictures there show a bright orange rose (both pictures from Select Roses). 2010 rose, nothing in our database here. I would like to get one if it's not too apricot-y.. I don't really care for apricot roses, but the pictures are a saturated orange. :)

Those photos don't look orange to me at all, Toni. I'd call the blooms in those photos an apricot blend, and Jalbert's registration name for the rose is JALpeach, so I think we can safely expect it to be peach-apricot.

It's listed in our database as 'Loretta Lynn Van Lear.' Edmunds' Roses is selling it this year as one of the roses of the Biltmore collection. The picture on their website also shows a peach-apricot rose.
