Dolly Parton rose is a spectacle. A strange (was in a great way) fiery neon orange with a thin veil of coral pink lipstick on top. It's a glowing gem atop medium green matte leaves. The color is so hard to describe and even harder to photograph. The sun hits it and it has an iridescent neon orange to it and in overcast is more of a searing coral tone. Seems to always be in bloom and the scent travels in a wave. 10/10

Welcome to the rose forum, ye pirate. That's a nice specimen of Dolly that you have. It's a classy rose named for a classy performer with an extraordinary background.

Absolutely, her personality matches the glowing large blooms of this variety.

I've grown about 175 different varieties over the years, but she's not one of them.

WOW, that's a goal of mine. I started at age 13 and haven't stopped no matter where I've moved. If you have the space she's definitely a winner. Does exceptionally well in an container for a full sized bush.
