This is the hybrid tea rose Brigadoon. It is unusual in that the top surface of the petals is a salmon pink, whereas the underside of the petals is a creamy off-white, making for a marked change in color as the bud slowly opens. It has an pleasant fruity fragrance. The first bud of 1999 is opening, as shown below.
When fully opened, Brigadoon is breathtaking!
Though classed as a hybrid tea, Brigadoon tends to form clusters of blossoms, such as the one below.
Brigadoon is putting on one final flush for 1999 -- here's one of the buds starting to open.
Brigadoon has begun to bloom in 2000, one of the last to do so.
In early July, Brigadoon's begun its second flush.
Brigadoon has begun to bloom, Memorial Day weekend, 2001.
Brigadoon has finally begun to bloom, early June, 2002.
Brigadoon has bloomed during the second week of June, 2003.
The end of July and Brigadoon is into its second flush.
Sadly, Brigadoon succumbed to the brutal winter of 2003-2004. Given its location between Fisherman's Friend and Queen Elizabeth (both of which are quite large) I don't know that I will replace it. This rose had a unique appearance and a unique fragrance and I will miss having it in my garden.
