Colorful Roses I can't identify
Hello rose lovers!
I have been in the landscaping/gardening business for over 15 years. One of my jobs was as the estate gardener for a large property, there were over 1,200 roses planted in the garden. I'm ashamed to say that I don't really know a whole lot about different rose types, and these are some colorful roses I can't identify.
I will have to say, one of my favorites is 'Santa Clause' - a miniature with beautiful red color and clean glossy foliage.
This beautiful, low maintenance rose grows at one of the properties that I take care of. I really enjoyed watching it grow last season. The colors are amazing! The blooms seemed to change colors as they mature - from a yellow/red to a pink/white/red. The foliage is also very colorful. No fertilizer or chemicals were added - no insects or leaf fungus bothered it.
It is growing in zone 6b and in we are semi-arid in the summer - low humidity and low rainfall.
What kind of rose is this?

This lovely Floribunda rose is called "Betty Boop" It is outstanding in the garden, and quite a favorite amoung gardeners!
The Betty Boop Rose
has that beautiful color change you speak of, and reblooms quickly. The new foliage is a purple/red color until it matures to green.
A great rose!
