Variability of Robusta?

Posted by anntn6b z6b TN (My Page) on

Our new Robusta (or perhaps I should say rose bought as Robusta) has deep pink blooms (the color that was called light red in the 1800's) and is at least semi-double.
It doesn't look anything like the Robustas I saw in Ontario two years ago in early June that were single blooms and deep red.
Has anyone seen my kind of blooms on a real Robusta? (I think I know the answer, but I am hoping ....)

Yes: you do know the answer. Next you can work on finding out what it really is, if you care to.
