Renegade finally blooming!

I finally have pictures. I was expecting more of a red, but with the blending on this mini it looks like an intense, deep pink.

It appears red only before the bud unfurls. As soon as it opens and the white parts begin reflecting sunlight, it turns pinkish. It's not as double as I thought it would be, but I'm still very happy with it. Very cute little rose!

Renegade looks great flaurabunda! How big are the blooms?

Ugh, sorry Jim. I couldn't post to this particular forum today until I got home from work. Was going to describe the blooms, but a yardstick does a much better job:

Renegade is about the same size as Tabasco Cat, but much smaller than Flawless, if you're familiar with those.

What an interesting change in color!! The roses are SO cute - especially in the last picture. Delightful!

Thanks!

Thanks, Carol! I was outside last night deadheading, and the blooms fade out to nearly white. It's really quite pretty going through its stages. Reddish-pink buds, then cherry-red open blooms, then it fades to an outline on each petal, then to white. It does not drop any petals while aging.
