    Hello all! I bought this rose back in May. It finally bloomed! But it's not white, as per description on the tag. It's light pink in the inside fading to white on the outside. It's single petals so I'm wondering if it'll be creamy white when the bush grow older? Or was it mis-tagged??

    Thanks!

    sorry wrong color.

    I meant to say the color was white inside radianting to a light, pale pink. Is that normal for R. Helenea?

    Helen,

    Can you take a photo of it and post it? With thousands of plants to handle, I'd wager the occasional one gets mistagged or labels get mixed up. The rose should indeed be white to cream in colour.

    I'll also look for a bit more info on the subject.
