Mrs. Colville, I presume?
I am used to first blooms on modern roses not being the exact color or shape as described or expected. The first blooms on the rose sold to me as 'Mrs. Colville' a once-blooming spinossisima - instead of dark red are white with a red stain on the petals.
Does anyone have an opinion or experience on the first blooms on spins being different than expected? About five blooms have opened, all like this one.
