Just double checking. Do you mean University of Chester WekS621-C21 is the same as and should be merged with Frida Kahlo WEKcifrabaun?

Hmmm...there might be a small problem in that member Jeffrey Zanadu, San Francisco, opened the file for University of Chester WekS621-C21 and now he is being listed as discoverer on the page. He does not accept Private Messages, I will delete him as discoverer from the Frida Kahlo file and hope that he will get in touch if there is anything not quite correct.

At its best in the spring when the color is quite unique...coral red stripes on an apricot orange base. It seems to lose its stripes in hot weather and become a solid dark smoky orange, not very attractive to me. The plant is healthy, bushy, blooms heavily and repeats often, having ideal floribunda qualities. Alas, that summer color doesn’t look good by itself and clashes with pretty much every other rose in the garden.

Super cute so far. Short plant, pointy foliage, big blooms, medium clusters.

I would say the color is not quite russet. They start off as salmon-tan, heavily striped coral orange. Then, by day 2, they are salmon pink, heavily striped coral red. Then, the coral red spreads as it ages from the sunlight. Pretty neat.

Wondering if the unknown portion of this rose is Paul Gaugin or a descendant of, which could make sense since PG is probably a hybrid of Maestro.

I ordered this rose early last year as Springhill Nurseries was selling a limited number plants a year early than its official release. I love stripes, so of course I snatched it up. The plant is a fine grower and had above-average blackspot resistance while most roses in my garden completely defoliated thanks to wet weather and a little known hurricane named Harvey (I kid). It has a nice, bushy shape. It bloomed well. The color is certainly unique as it's not really an orange and yellow stripe. It's a more rusty orange with a more cream-orange stripe. On the hottest days in Houston the blooms did fry a little, and the blooms don't last quite as long in extreme heat as other do, but this is one of the better all-around strips I have. If you like stripes, snatch it up this spring for something unique.
