This here beautiful dark pink rose is supposedly my "Sharifa Asma", 'an English Rose of rare delicacy and beauty. Soft pink in color, with a touch of gold at the base of the petals', or so says David Austin. You tell me...does THIS rose look "soft pink with a touch of gold at the base of the petals"???
I have had Sharifa for perhaps 6 or 7 years, bought from an extremely reputable nursery, and have NEVER seen her bloom this color! Can anybody tell me...what's up with that????
