Double Delight In The Garden


I love this rose. It’s called double delight.

Searching more info about it on, I found out interesting facts about rose like it that change color from white/cream to red/dark pink.

“Some roses fade in the sun, some roses darken in the sun, some roses actually change color in the sun. Roses such as ‘Elina’,’Double Delight’, ‘Headliner’, ‘Color Magic’ and ‘Paradise’ all show these traits.”

‘Double Delight’ was almost discarded because it was thought to be just another WHITE rose. Only later were its phototropic characteristics seen when it turned red in the sun.

This hybrid tea rose is also very fragrant. It’s the main reason why I choose to buy it in the first place.
