variegata de bologna

Rose Type: Bourbon

Mature size: tall shrub or short climber

Bloom: 3" to 4"

Blooming: Repeats

Pruning: By 1/3 each year

A rose with flashy stripes of reddish purple decorate the pinkish white petals from base to tip. As the blooms recurve and open the stripes seem to swirl around like a peppermint stick. Foliage is a bit sparse but the rich green color that exists in the leaves and branches are a lovely backdrop and contrast sharply with the marvelous flower colorization.  She is a shy bloomer so give her the best location possible to help with the health and vigor of the plant.
