In looking at my Yolande, I noticed a different bloom coming from the bottom of the plant. This is an own root Yolande and I have two different colors of blooms on it. Do you think it is the same rose and it just sometimes blooms a light lavender or mauve color in addition to the darker pink or could this be a different plant? When I got the plant there were three canes and I assumed they were all Yolande. I read on HMF that Yolande can have mauve to pink blooms, so I am asking those who may have this plant. The leaves on Yolande look flat and not shiny. The leaves where the mauve blooms are, are shiny. Now I just sprayed beneficial nematodes this morning so it still could be wet from that. I did take some closer pictures but one of them was blurry and the others are taking forever to load from my phone. What do you think?

The whole plant--it is just a baby but is starting to take off

I think that the nursery who sold you this rose had a cutting from another rose in the same pot. I know a few nurseries will have a sort of back-up cutting in the same pot/container. I know that when I ordered 'Celsiana' from Burlington Roses, there were two separately-rooted cuttings in there. One went to one garden, the other lives at my cemetery project garden. It just looks like this time, the wrong cutting was left in there.

Chris, that is what I am thinking too. The plant was from Burling. I am wondering what that other plant could be. I hate to try to separate the two plants now since we will be over 100 degrees all week and they both seem to be doing well.

I agree, you have two different plants.

I don't know what it is, but you could check her availability listing she puts out every year and try to figure it out. Or you could just ask her. I had an error with something from the Sacramento Cemetery's annual sale, and what I got wasn't anything near alphabetically but was something also propagated on the same date, which I found out by chatting with Anita Clevinger herself. Burling is pretty quick to respond to emails, so you should just ask her.

Well, I have an ID on the rose. Burling states it is Stranger a florist hybrid tea. Yikes! Hybrid teas are my least favorite roses (along with carpet and knockout roses) and it is a florist flower to boot! That makes it doubly difficult to grow. I am not sure how I will ever separate the two. My computer actually cooperated with me and I was able to download pictures of Stranger. It reminds me of a lilac Vick's Caprice but only as far as coloring and stripes and not the flower shape (which I will see when it opens either today or tomorrow--we are going up to 106 F or beyond today).
