Belle Epoque

This gorgeous rose was a present for our Golden Wedding last year. It has dramatic colour contrasts in the petals. In bud the outside is a dark brownish red, which becomes lighter as it opens. Inside the petals are rich yellow, tinged pink - again becoming lighter as it comes into full bloom.
