Rosa mundi

Llanwenlys(8)July 21, 2011

My Rosa Mundi (two years old) has bloomed for the first time. I got it from High Country Roses.

I expected a striped, variegated rose, but this is one solid color, all fuscia-deep pink.

Why? Any ideas?

It's reverted to the Apothecary Rose. It will do that. Mine is often part one, part the other.

My Rosamundi is also in its second year. The beginning of the spring bloom cycle was striped as expected. However, now there are approximately 4 blooms and all are solid pink.
We recently had a major wind storm and I wonder if the trauma caused by the wind caused the reversion?
