Rose of the Week: Rio Samba

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

This is another in the series featuring a rose from our yard.

We’ve had Rio Samba for several years.  The bush is relatively small, but the blossoms are beautiful.  It is difficult to find a single photo that does justice to this rose, as the blossoms change colors as they age.  This picture was taken the day after the blossom opened fully.  Older blossoms would show more red.

No matter the size of the bush, it produced a wonderfully large beauty.

It really does have the southern colors of the area. It is a fancy rose with all the oranges and yellow.

The color is beautiful but I especially like the red around the edges. Nature sure can't be beat.

George, what a unique rose - I have not seen one like it. So pretty! I've got to look back at some of your older posts too and see others you may have highlighted.

How truly gorgeous as usual. I found one blooming in pale yellow this morning. Have no idea how it has survived.

Craver Vii said...

I hope you show a later Rio Samba. This one is perfect, and I have a hard time imagining how it would look when it's older.
