"Desert Island"

At home in the rose garden.

Apricot or apricot blend Floribunda. Introduced in United Kingdom by Dickson Nurseries Ltd.
in 2006 as 'Desert Island'. Light apricot, white outer petals, ages to white .
Creamy caramel. Cluster-flowered, in small clusters, open bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season. [Notes from Help Me Find roses]

My notes. This one is a new addition this season, and this is one of the first flowers
too early for me to make any comments, but the bloom is rather plain so far
and a bit disappointing, I can't see any light apricot, perhaps our summer sunlight
is too strong.

Looks like you got the 'age' before the 'apricot' Von. :-)

Yes, the sun can bleach the petals. I do love the yellow center! V

There's an excellent feeling of depth in this one; every layer of petals seems to stand out from the one below, which in turn seem to stand out from the first layer of leaves and so on.

More creams seem to dominate, but it's very pretty just the same.
