Amber Queen has a special place in my heart. It was one of the first roses I ever grew, and one of my photographs of it won Best in Show at the American Rose Society's national convention (photography division). The color varies a bit with lighting conditions, but is usually a creamy amber or light golden tone. The double ruffled blooms reveal themselves in layers as the buds slowly unfurl.
