Got this rose on clearance and the 1 bloom I saw intrigued me. I usually study up on arose before getting it but took the chance. I love in z8a and she has been a charmer. The rose starts out white and then morphs into deep pink tones as if it has been water colored. She’s been quite healthy and this is her 2 nd yr and she has over 30 big buds.

This is an extremely healthy and highly phototropic rose. On cloudy days, it opens near white (with hints of cream or creamy peach) but can turn quite red with intense sun exposure.

I'm really pleased with this rose. It makes nice sprays that are colorful -- due to the changing color with sun exposure -- and it has really nice foliage -- very shiny and healthy, ala Playboy. I have been recommending it to others since receiving mine from Chamblees last year.

While there is a rose KORumneza this seedling number is in error. Kordes has not released this rose and it has never been offered for sale commercially in the world, so the date of 2002 is incorrect and troubling information. Having this on the internet will cause problems with patent filing in N. America. Where was this information obtained? Can you remove it from the site?

The concern was with the company's ability to patent the rose and legally collect royalties, not with the "public's welfare", Andrea. Patent laws state you have one year from the "public introduction" of a plant to patent it and demand royalties for its production. Public introduction can mean as little as posting a photo of it on line with any information that specifically identifies the plant. Patent Office employees are very well versed in internet searches.
