The Many Faces of My Playboy

A budding Playboy

The flower may not be fancy but the colors sure are. The colors in bud are stunning and it does not disappoint after it opens. First there is a beautiful contrast of orange and yellow, which softens to pink and pale yellow.

Playboy in full glory

Then it ages to a deeper pink.

Playboy - the final stage

Playboys lead a fast life and perish all too soon.

Hello Miss Canthus. These are lovely photos of Playboy. Thanks for posting the series like that, it really gives a great feel for all the stunning stages of this rose. I can't quite see the leaves well enough to see if it's a rugosa or not.

Glad you like the photos.

Puget4, it is a flobibunda, and definitely not a rugosa. According to Helpmefind.com is was bred in Scotland in 1976.

Wow! your playboy is just so handsome - and your roses below too.

I want to invite you to participate in our Green Thumb Sunday blogroll. It's for gardeners or gardener wanna be's, house plant enthusiasts, and nature lovers.

All you need to do to participate is to post a picture on Sundays (at least once a month) of a plant in your yard or that you are growing, happened to see somewhere, a landscape or nature scene.

And to put up the (blogroll) links to the other participants, not so many yet, on your blogs sidebar.

Sounds easy doesn't it?
