Meg Peterson saw 'Star 2000' at the ARS National in Houston. The color was fantastic.
The color in her photo is a bit washed out due to close up photography with an indoor flash. But what a rose! No wonder people are talking about it!
Someone else describes the color as like that of a near-ripe tomato.
