Beautiful. I think Double delight is my favorite. I have trouble growing it in my yard. I have 2 and neither one are good growers. Maybe I need to get one from a place other than a big box store.

It opens cream and then begins going red. This bud was a deep cream because it was cold and rainy here prior to its opening.

This rose always stands out in a bouquet---I lost mine a few years ago but I enjoyed it while I had it----Yours is lovely.

Okay - didn't know that cream vs. white was an option too. What an amazing rose!!

The fragrance is powerful. I love it.

It sometimes gets a mottled pink look that I don't care for so I am apt to cut the stems as soon as the bud shows color to bring inside. Long lasting but very little Pink/red this way.

I let the bud open more if I want the coloration I showed above. Heat/Sun brings the pink/red.

ronda, wow. I couldn't get any blooms on DD before I started spraying.

Speaking of white vs cream, I had this DD bloom that was underneath a lot of foliage and was almost pure white...

I know!!!! This rose is supposed to be a BS magnet....but I am not telling her that!!!!

Minimal BS and I don't spray...if only I was this lucky when they draw the lottery numbers!! :o)

Lucky you Ronda! That's lovely! If you ever figure out the secret to your healthy DD please share! Both of mine are BS magnets but the blooms are so gorgeous and the smell so wonderful that I just deal with it.

Beautiful blooms, Ronda!

DD is a phototropic rose. That means the color changes with the temperature and the amount of sun it gets. Mine can be any where from nearly snow white with very little red to nearly all red with some deep cream/almost yellow at the base of the petals and anything and everything else in between.

This is the same bloom over the course of about 24 hours.

I like the 2nd and 3rd photos the best. What an amazing rose! Then, you probably get many different roses going through their own changes at the same time. Must be awesome.
