hi guys, its been a while. but of course its 22 out so I'm inside making my lists for spring.
Ive been meaning to post this rose for a while. we moved and I didn't take all my roses so last season was spent creating new beds and replacing some roses that I left. Any way this mystery rose was supposed to be distant drums. I had the same measly distant drums for years its root stock died and so I had a foot tall plant for years that just languished. I left it and decided to start over with one that was healthier to begin with. that one was half rotted etc when I received it. Any one want to take a stab at it? Im leaning toward old blush or freckle face. its got a lot of stippling but its also very hot pink at times and orange as well so Im not sure . I know that distant drums can get really dark but this one is shaped a lot like my old dd but the color is way off

The foliage does not look like Old Blush. I am not very familiar with Distant Drums, but the color in the third picture isn't too far off, do you think?

yes there are some that are that dark in help me find. mine had always been light pink almost lavender and tan.Im hoping it is distant drums. ive only gardened in one city. would soil composition composition have that much effect on color 80 miles away? i added a link to my first plant

For my roses temperature has a significant effect. The blooms that I see this time of year are generally a richer color than in summer.

Dana, you're back! How great to hear from you!

Your rose blooms probably have too many petals to be Freckle Face, which is a double at most and often produces only semi-double blooms. I agree with Porkpal that it could be Distant Drums. Wait until you see this year's spring blooms before trying for an ID. They could have more of the lavender and tan coloring.

Hi Zuzu! Yes with all the moving the last few years It seems I only pop in when everything is dead and frozen haha. I'm going to make more of an effort contributing I miss talking to people who are plant freaks like me lol. beside my mom no one understands my obsession ha. This one stayed dark all through the summer but it did go from dark hot pink to the bicolor. the closed bloom in the last photo was the first bloom for me. I'm hoping it will settle In and be what it's supposed to be lol.

I'm enjoying the photos. Although the color combo does look like Distant Drums, I don't have a clue about which rose it is. I've never seen a Colorific exactly this color, but I'd be unable to rule it out.

I'm sure you have already observed this, but roses capable of producing both reddish and yellowish pigments can be highly variable in color. If the reddish pigment is a magenta mixed with black, one tends to get muddier colors. This variation is doubly true when one or both of those pigments either builds up or fades during the life of the bloom.

I try not to think about how a rose "ought" to look. That does not stop me from being impressed or disappointed, but it will sometimes allow me to judge a rose more by its merits than by my expectations. FWIW.

I kinda like the slightly muddy orchid pink colors in this rose, with the touch of orange near the center, regardless of how it should look.
