Roses forum: Can't figure out what kind of rose I

I picked up a small potted rose at my local supermarket, and I've fallen in love with the color. But I've tried and tried to find more of them online, and can't. Can anyone tell me what this is? Its driving me nuts. It is a very small, hybrid tea rose (I think), that starts as a peachy pink, then fades to a pale pink and green, then to a solid pale green when it fully opens. It may look white in the photo, but I promise it is green.

Do you think it might be 'Green Diamond'?

Nice find- whatever it is...

It's unlikely that a Moore mini would be sold at a supermarket. Those usually are the minis of Kordes' Kordana line or Poulsen's Parade line.

Looks like Kordes' Magnolia to me. The pictures on HMF show it fading to green.

I think that's NOVA 2009 PATIO HIT. I got one from the Grocery Outlet a few months ago and ID'd it from the Poulsen website.

I thought the same thing. The Rosier roses kept coming up on searches, so I tried to find it there. Just couldn't get an exact color match. You're probably right, thank you.
