Beautiful color! Interesting how it starts in the middle of the leaf and spreads outward. Which parent does the color come from? I haven't grown either of them. Was there juvenile bloom in this one?
Very nice!

Duane,

I don't recall either parent having rich color. Mostly yellow and gold. There was no juvenile bloom

The richest fall color I've ever had in my garden so far was on MORsoucrest/Dawn Crest, which Kim shared with me years ago (but which did not survive the transplant/move to my new home, unfortunately). It was, as I recall, a remarkably dark purpley bronze. My Lorapetalum would have been jealous of that foliage.
(I gather I can only link to online photos, and not actually upload them into this forum?)
I have a sport of Fabvier/Martha Gonzalez called "Old Gay Hill" after the community where it was discovered, which gets an attractive purpley bronze as well, and my Pink Pet/Caldwell Pink does too.

I’m adding a picture that shows the color intensifying. I'm very pleased with the autumn color and look forward to seeing the first blossom.

Thanks, Rob. I guess I never scrolled down far enough to see those tabs!
Here is the MORsoucrest (Dawn Crest) I was talking about. Photo is several years old as I no longer have this plant, but I thought it quite striking. (Let's see if this works...)

And another. These were taken January 2015. I don't recall if they did the same the following year, to be honest.

This one is a horrible photo, but in the background (errr... left -- sorry, dunno why sideways...) is "Old Gay Hill" and in the foreground is Cramoisi Superieur taken the same day. OGH has nice purpley bronze foliage.

It's of course conceivable that we had something in the weather that made them particularly colorful that year.

Here are the same two roses (OGH and CS) nearly 3 months later:

Philip,

Thanks for sharing your pictures. I particularly like the leaf color of MORsoucrest.
