Hello, I have a 3 1/2 yr old Joseph's coat climber, it's over 7' and
is blooming like mad. This year at the top there is a new species of
rose blooming there. It is a very soft pink and white stripes. It has
strong aroma of an "old rose". I have never seen this bush bloom with 2
entirely different types of roses. The blooms are usually red, yellow,
orange then opens to a yellow center. Why are there small pink buds all
over just the tops? It's gorgeous, but what's happened to this climber?
Has this ever happened to your Joesphs coat climbing rose?
My guess would be that this is a grafted rose, and some canes are growing from the root stock, so the roses would be that of the root graft.
