How many flowers count as a second flush? There are two blooms almost out and two showing colour, five have flowered over the last couple of weeks and another five yet to come. This rose usually attempts to rebloom in September but usually by then it is too cool and wet, this year has been exceptionally hot and dry and it has started already.

I have read that this rose is sterile. Is it even sterile as a pollen parent?

I planted this rose 2 years ago it is over 1.5 metres high. I struggle with hybrid-teas and floribunda types which gradually wither away with blackspot. This rose however is completely healthy and has shown no sighs of disease at all. It tries to have a second flush but the weather usually is too cold by then.

When I looked at the uploaded pictures of this rose, I noticed most of the flowers are yellow.
But some are pink(-ish) or even almost salmon.
Is there a sport, or does this rose vary in color due to......?

In my garden 'Agnes' can certainly have pink tints, at times. I haven't stopped to note temperature or another reason. Will try to remember to do so next season and photograph it.

Hello again Jay-Jay. I've had a search of my literature and added a couple of references. Mostly they say additional colours of buff and amber, but the 2004 reference does say "hints of pink".

Hello Jay-Jay, The spring season is almost over here and I have been watching all the time.
I have not seen the pink centers I have seen in past years, but one or two that perhaps could be called pale pink. It has been a wet and cool spring with no hot weather to speak of.

Thank You Patricia, that You remembered to look for me this spring (our autumn)!
It looks as if there is a hint of pink or buff, if you like. The roses look paler than earlier, or is that because of the light?
Is such a wet and cool spring not common for your part of Australia?
I wish You to enjoy the season and the oncoming flush of roseflowers!
Best regards, Jay-Jay.

Jay-Jay. Look, look, look at what I found. After a wonderfully wet spring, then a horrific heatwave lasting 5 or 6 days, and returning at last to 2 cool and most pleasant days. 'Agnes' has gone semi-double and pinkish apricot. This is the same bush as photographed above. These blooms are at the tip of the now much taller bush.

Thank You Patricia,
That's a surprise! As for the colour, they look completely different roses, but beautifull as well!
Almost very light salmon pink.
Your bush is a lot bigger than mine, that's still a baby. Maybe I'll relocate it at a better spot.
Thanks again for sharing with and remembering my question.
Yours' sincerely, antipode Jay-Jay.

The pink colour in 'Agnes' may be due to heat. There will be lots of Australian members who may be able to contribute here as the aforementioned heatwave is now scorching most of the Eastern side of Australia. Photos will be welcome.
