Which of the 'Westerland' sport family has the best color?

Which has color which is clear, not dull, and doesn't turn pinkish?

I have read that 'Westerland' is excellent for cold climates, repeats and is fragrant, but I have never cared for the color.

Maybe more fun in sowing Your own Westerland seedlings (most of the outcome is splendid) than buy a sport?
In my humble opinion, some of my seedlings are way better than the mother/hip-parent Westerland.
Better scented, longer lasting, nicer foliage an better growing habit/better suited as a climber.

The plant Jay-Jay gave me is a most satisfactory pink/orange/red colour and very healthy too.

Please take a look at my this years' seedlings in my journal and my earlier seedlings of Westerland at my breeder page.

Your seedlings look splendid. For me to grow some I would have to buy a 'Westerland', which I don't really want to do.

I love your 'Noortje'. Now, that shows good color and good shape as well, IMO.

I don't think the Hooks have made it to the US yet.

And I'll have to send them another Noortje.
Thank You for Your kind compliment

Or just ask someone in the USA, that grows this rose, if they would be so kind to send You some (OP) hips.

Many of the flowers of this rose have an attractive white flash to the reverse of the petals.

PS: Andrew, can You add Your garden to this rose?
REPLY
Reply #3 of 3 posted 27 AUG by Andrew from Dolton
Sure Jay-Jay, I think that's added.
I must say it looks exactly like a polyantha rose, very similar in growth to 'Paul Crampel' or its neighbour 'Turner's Crimson'.

Just am writing an article about the 15 best slovak roses, and one from is ´Tolstoj´. It seems growing good near the sea, too. Nice pics!

I agree! It's a wonderful rose with very heavy flowers, that smell fantastic!

I wouldn't describe the color of this rose as carmine-red, lighter reverse, but more like in the other thread of comments: grey-lilac and plum. (or grey-lilac and lilac)
