This dainty salmon colored rose was a gift from my son Cale for a Mother's Day Past. The blooms begin with a very deep salmon orangy color and change to lighter shades to yellow and they almost white. They bloom profusely as you can see all the buds ready to pop open. The scent is a sweet apricot spice...I just love it! I dry the petals and store them in an airtight jar. Onced opened the wonderful scent is still fresh and strong.
