The New Year rose, has three distinct colors within the beautiful blooms.
Crimson, yellow, and orange gently blend together, and look best when the flower is fully open.
The inner petals of this Grandiflora rose are pale orange, with darker under sides. The outer petals glow with crimson edges, and tend to roll down exposing the whole flower in a very pleasing effect.
The first blooms of the season usually come singly, and later they appear in clusters of up to five. The shapely florets have a light, pleasing, somewhat fruity fragrance.
