Now, just for fun, here are two blooms on the same plant, ex Vintage Gardens, taken today, August 14, 2017. The summer here in Fort Bragg, CA, has been cool and foggy; the plant was purchased as a gallon at the Celebration of Old Roses, in El Cerrito, CA, in May, 2017. All the previous little blooms (this very young plant just wants to keep pushing blooms out) have begun and remained the deeper pink color, as in the photos posted by Cass (also VG) but this pale apricot bloom just opened from a pale apricot bud. Fascinating! (Sorry for quality of iPad photo.)
