2 years ago I purchased a bare root CSK grandiflora rose.
It was probably only 10" tall at the time and is now close to 6' tall and extremely vigorous.
It's first flush of blooms in spring is spectacular and the color is just like the descriptions of it: Coral orange with white edgings.
As the weather warms here (like right now) the color changes to a cherry red type of color with white edges and zero hints of coral or orange. I realize this is a common thing with some roses, but this is "discouraging" as it looks like a completely different rose...until fall arrives and it goes back to it's coral color.
Anyone else have experiences like this with this particular rose ?
