This bush is growing two colours of roses, and it looks like the fuschia ones either bloomed first or are just less hearty than the red ones. Either way, red and pink together in nature is such a perfect combination.

@erinbee Some flowers will fade to a different color shade. Maybe that’s what’s happening here.

@Fritillaria2 Like hydrangeas do. Haven't seen it on a rose bush before.

@erinbee I’ve seen varieties like “Joseph’s Coat” (Or something) that has yellow pink, and a species rose that shifts orange and magenta. Not very many.

@erinbee pretty sure they're the same colour, but as the red pigments age, they turn pink! Super common in roses :)
