Beautiful picture, Ingird! Is yours always a bicolor like that? How is the fragrance?
Thank you,
Masha

Hi, Masha! Always good to hear from you. This rose was a mature plant I received as a gift in the past 6 months from a friend. All four of the currently open blooms are the bi-color shown in the pictures with light pink on the outside petals and pale yellow, touches of white in the middle. Since taking the pics this a.m., the colors have softened a bit, with the yellow tones turning to soft ivory and the pink on the outer petals also fading a tad. The fragrance is delightful but hard to describe--a pronounced yet soft, sweet fragrance like baby powder, but not exactly that fragrance--to MY nose. It's one of the reasons I've lusted after this rose in my friend's garden. It ranges from strong to slight fragrance depending on the source, so it may be one of those that not all can discern. The foliage is bulletproof even after its recent transfer here and being surrounded by rusty and BS covered roses!

Thank you, Ingrid, your answers are always so informative. By the way, your pictures on HMF enabled me to buy not only Hoag House Cream, but Break O'Day too. Your roses are wonderful!

Sharing info. about roses is what HMF's all about, Masha, and if I've helped in any way to "enable" you with Hoag House Cream and Break O'Day, which are both terrific roses, I'm delighted! Enjoy! I admire your fine taste in roses, LOL!
