Color Magic
Rose of the Month For June, July, and August, 2006
by Barbara Picarelli

I picked this rose a couple days ago, and when it finally opened up, it was a full 8 Ĺ inches across. It was probably the largest rose Iíve ever had. I loved the soft shadings and felt is deserved to be chosen for the rose of the Month, so I took this photo.

This particular rose was hybridized by Warriner in 1978, from parentage of a seedling X ĎSpellbinderí. My bush is straight tall and has nice clean dark green foliage. A rarity after all this rain! The buds are long, very pointed and open to a salmon colored center with outer leaves brushed with a soft pink. It normally has 25-30 petals on a flat bloom, borne singly on very long stems. Modern Roses lists it as having a fruity fragrance, intense, but I didnít elicit that in my bloom. It was the AARS selection in 1978, and is still readily available. This rose has captured many a prize on the exhibition table.
