Seed Swaps

mystery rose      

band sent free from rogue valley roses, no idea what color etc., so planted in an out of the way place. Bloomed a lovely pale pink with a strong sweet fragrance. I moved it to replace the dead tree peony in the front border next to “The fairy”. It can make up for the fairy’s lack of scent.

Is it “allegra” ?

Wow, gorgeous- Glad u r moving it to a more visible spot.

May be Allegra, or may only have Allegra as one of its parents.
Seems a little bit paler pink than typical of Allegra.
But if it was growing in part shade, the lower light levels could perhaps have caused it to have a pale color.
