variations on red

I was fascinated to see the difference in color between the full bloom and new blooms of this flower in the gardens at château Chaumont.  While it looks to me as being quite rose-like, I'm not sure that it is. In any case, it was a beauty to behold.


  1. Yes it's definitely a rose -- R. gallica, R. rugosa, something like that I'd say, but I can't tell from the photo for sure to species/variety level.
