This was sold to me as a "mutant" double delight. Everything about the rose except the colors seem to be exactly like double delight. I don't however notice as much fragrance as from the double delight. Any ideas on what it truly is?

Looks like my Love and Peace.

RE: mutated double delight

how's the fragrance on your love and peace? I need to get a better picture of the folage and entire plant.

Hardly any at all. Mine has a vase-like form, a little over 5' tall.

RE: mutated double delight

do you know if love and peace and double delight are related close enough that one could mutate into the other?

RE: mutated double delight

DianeNJ is probably correct in her identification of your rose. She has considerable rose knowledge (along with terrific photos).

'Love & Peace' is most closely related to 'Peace.' 'Double Delight' is a cross between 'Garden Party' and 'Granada.'

My guess is that the person who told you it was a mutated 'Double Delight' was misinformed.

I think she's right about it being Love & Peace too - the plants look almost identical - the person who id'd as double delight though is supposed to be a regional expert employed by the nursery where i bought it which is why i was wondering if there was some genetics that could've caused it to revert - i'm trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, i guess (the regional expert that is)

petaloid, thanks for the correction on the spelling (Love AND Peace is a mini, Love & Peace is the HT), I should know better... ;-)

I don't know of any color sports (that's what we call "mutations") of Double Delight.
