What a fabulous thing to happen! I have to confess I like the striped flower better than the original; as you say it's so cute.

Wow! That's really cool.

I agree with Ingrid, the striped flower is much more striking than the original. May be you have a new "sport"?

RE: My Dick Clark made a stripey flower!

I kind of doubt that it's an actual sport since the cane that it's on has regular flowers on it also. Seems like it's just one of those weird things! I'm glad I took pictures of it!

Very fun! My favorite is still the actual Dick Clark rose. Dick Clark passed recently, perhaps he was just playing games with you, lol.

Aw, I didn't think of that (Dick Clark having recently passed).

I love Dick Clark rose, but that stripey one is terrific also. I hope it is a sport and eventually gets into commerce. I'd love one!

Oh, what a fun celebration Stripey! Both are fabulous blooms but truly the Stripey is AMAZING! soooo unique the yellow, stripes and whites all co-mingled. Like everyone else here I'm holding my breath, hoping you end up with a Sport and a new hybrid....

Wow, how neat! I love striped roses, don't have any growing yet but I think they are so pretty and really stand out! The other rose is beautiful too. I think I will have to get a Dick Clark rose this year :)

Wow, I wonder if it will do that again. Probably not consistently tho. I have a rose called MEILLAND DECOR ARLEQUIN that often has stripey and even speckled blooms in the very first flush of the season, but not afterwards. Must have something to do with the cooler temps.

Oh that's so interesting Beth. I didn't know that roses do that- throw a striped flower every so often. I hope to see it again! I actually just snipped the spent bloom off today.

It's really pretty! It might just be a one time occurrence due to some weather or something but I'd still mark that cane and keep an eye on it to see what it does next. You never know!
