It seems that many of my roses including Mr. Lincoln are producing pinkish blooms. Is this due to heat?

I've noted my Mr Lincoln tends to go deep pink when it needs to be fed. The heat can influence or fade color as well.

My two year old perfume delight rose has turned a very dark red. Is there any way I can get it back to its correct color. The last year it was planted next to a stainless steel rose that past away this winter, did this have any effect?

Roses are grafted onto an understock to give them more vigour. The understock is called Dr. Huey and is a dark red. If your rose has changed colour then the top part (Perfume Delight) has died and you are left with the understock.

My standard rose bush (new last summer) had yellow flowers last season, but this year they are pink! Why is this and how can I get it to revert to the original yellow?

My pink rose bush did the same thing....found out that the rose bush was not getting enough iron...after adding this the next cycle bloom it was back to its original color.

Good luck hope this works for you....Selina

I have a red rose bush and a red & white striped bush planted about 2 feet apart. This year the red color has dominated my striped color. Both bushes produced red roses. If I move the red bush, will the striped bush once again be striped? also, how far apart should different colors be to prevent from happening again. Thanks

Striped roses are beautiful but they are not a stable colour and will often revert to just a plain colour. The colour change is only in the breeding of the striped rose and so the plain red rose bush has no bearing on the reversion.
