Roses

Can anyone tell me why alot of the flowers on my Nevada rose are very pale pink but in Spring and Autumn they are the true colour creamy yellow. Also I have the rose Agnes rose and this yr it flowered for the first time and they are the same pale pink

  • Climate, season, and soil can alter the color of a rose. This is true of many tea roses (I do not mean hybrid teas) and some of the heritage roses.

    One of my container-grown roses changed to a much paler colour when I allowed self-seeded geraniums to grow in the container. I pulled them all out , top dressed it , gave it some fertiliser and the next flowers were the normal colour.

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    It's often temperature dependent with roses.
