I hope it is OK for me start a thread for bi-colored and multi-colored roses. I only have a few and would love to see more. I'll start with mine -

I love blends and bi-colors--my favorite type of rose, in fact. I'll just pick out a couple that don't usually get as much attention as they should.

Well Being--modern shrub. I love the shadings of this bud.

Well Being--opening up, reddish buds around it.

Gypsy Carnival HT--those yellow reverses are wonderful!

Jubilee Celebration--Austin. Another one I don't have a great pic of, but it is beautiful, a touch of yellow at the base of the salmon pink blooms.

Red Intuition HT--wonderful rose.

Kate - I agree, I'm realizing they are some of my favorites too, when I think about it, there are some lovely ones. Love the combination of your Well Being and Jubilee Celebration, some pink and yellow combinations are very lovely. Your Gypsy Carnival and Red Intuition are both very dramatic. I have already ordered more roses than I should have, I always want more and I am trying to show a little restraint, it's not easy!

I planted two About Face grandifloras this fall - can't wait to see blooms. The bi-tone yellow with orange reverse really caught my eye in photos!

Sara-Ann, I especially love your beautiful Peace photo. Is she a favorite of yours? I've loved Peace since I was about ten when my Dad started growing it the 1950s. You can't imagine what a sensation that rose was then. I still remember those huge fat blooms on his "Peace Rose".
Kate, what an eye grabbing pic of petal packed Red Intuition. It's gorgeous.
Laguna and Kiss of Fire are my kind of bicolors, Beth. I love a delicate pink-yellow combination, and these two roses are scrumptious. I think my favorite is the unusual Remember Me. But I can't describe those luscious subdued colors--so different.
View1ny, I love the different look of your Peace. Another favorite of mine are bee pics, and your bee visitor on Double Delight is a cute one.
Thanks for posting some your blends and bicolors. Diane

I think I'll post more than one photo of my favorite multicolored rose, Augusta Luise. She goes through so many color stages, it's hard to pin down just what color she really is. Diane
Is she orange?

Beth - I love your combos! Milestone is a rose I've always wanted so I'm getting it this year. Others that caught my eye are Party Time, Summer Nights and Tequila Sunrise. View1ny - Don't know why I forgot my Love, I planted an own root one in '13. I used to grow it and it would be covered with picture perfect blooms in the early fall. Love your Signature and the lovely Peace bloom too. Diane - Yes, I do love the Peace rose. It has been around so long that even people who don't know much at all about roses seem to be familiar with it and seem to like it. I can always detect a light fragrance from it and apparently some think it has a strong fragrance. I think it is so great that you have that wonderful memory from your childhood. Your Augusta Luise is gorgeous. Don't know if I like the orange or pink best, it's beautiful at all stages!

Beth, you have several of the yellow and reddish shades. Love that color combination!

I didn't think I particularly liked the Love rose, but view's Love is very attractive. Looks nice in a cluster of blooms.

Kate, I wasn't so crazy about my Love rose either, but right now in the dead of winter when all I can do is look at garden pics it's looking pretty good! I was thinking of giving it away to make room for another rose, but how can I do that now since it cheered me up so much in January? I'm going to give it another season in my garden & then decide what to do with it.

This pic of James Galway clearly displays the different shades of pink. Not sure if this is considered bi-colored, but here it is anyway.

View--I'm becoming quite enamored of James Galway--never paid much attention to it before, but have seen several pics of it recently. Were those all yours? It is truly a handsome rose.

Kate, I have a feeling that most of the James Galway pics you've seen recently were mine. I seriously love this rose.

I have a bad case of winteritis & miss my garden so much. All I can do right now is post pics & drool over everyone else's. It's as much fun as a lot of us can have right now.

NCM is probably my favorite out of the roses I purchased last year. Got it bareroot from Regan, and it really took off running. Bloomed like crazy without any disease that I recall. I'm very happy with it.

Editing to add that it is also strongly fragrant. :)

I must have missed this one earlier. I love bi-colors a lot so I have dozens of them.

Sara, I really think that is Granada. It's a dead ringer for mine.

Kate, there you go tempting me with that Gypsy Carnival again!

Pat, Colorific is WOW!

Beth, looks like someone kissed all the petals on Party Time with bright red lipstick!

I won't post all of mine, like I said, dozens but here are a few different ones.

Archduke Charles

Brilliant Pink Iceberg

Candy Land

Double Take

Dream Come True

Here's my Granada, Sara

Hondo

Hot Romance

Iobelle

Stars n Stripes

Tattooes Lady

Trump Card

msjam2 - your photos are beautiful. I second Sara Ann about Distant Drums. I have one coming this spring as well.

I also really like your raised stone border... was that DIY? I'd love to do something like that for my own beds!

Karen, no it's not DIY. It's already there when we bought the house. Although when it's warm enough, I will chisel out the mortar and redo it, they are dried out and have fallen all over the place.
