Masquerade Vita used a substantial planting of 'Masquerade' in the toolshed bed adjacent to the Cottage Garden. This Floribunda is now generally despised for its brash colouring, poor flower shape and ungainly habit. Opening yellow and ageing through orange and red to a blotchy deep salmon, it was unique when introduced in 1949 for the potency of its chameleon colours...

Masquerade  (Boerner, 1949)  Is fully deserving the title of a rose sensation. The changing of individual blooms at different times in the one truss from yellow, then pink, and finally red must be seen to be believed. The foliage is particularly healthy, while the plant is extremely free in bloom. This variety offers wonderful opportunities for the hybridist to create new types.

'Masquerade' Hybrid polyantha. An American novelty of quite astonishing colour effect. The blooms which are set in large clusters are semidouble and very durable. The buds are bright red, the blooms when half open are pure golden-yellow, only to change, in the fully open blossom, back to red again; a colour contrast of quite unusual effect, especially when many are planted together. Tall.
