Striped roses, two-tones, and bi-colored roses, are very unique and beautiful. They can be the focal point of your garden.
Usually no two are alike. As if "hand painted" they each have their own specific color pattern.
If your garden consists only of single color roses, you are missing out by not having some unique roses with stripes.
The striped roses pictured at right 'Purple Splash' would look spectacular with purple or white roses.
I hope the information I've included with each of these striped, and bi color roses will be helpful to you.

This is a pic of one bloom that was on a Double Delight bush that I had a couple of years ago, and sadly succumbed to the first winter of an amature (sp?) rosarian. I love how this picture shows the great contrast between pink and cream color.
