About Face Rose



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

About Face is one of our most unusual roses. It gets its name from the fact that the outside of the petal is darker than the inside, which is the reverse of most roses.

One thing far sure, your rose garden is much prettier than the one at the White House. This is gorgeous.

This is an unusual one, George, but very pretty. I like the way you took the photo with a dark background contrasting with the light on the rose.
