Rosa chinensis 'Mutabilis'
Common Name: China Rose Family: Rosaceae (The Rose Family)

Rosa chinensis 'Mutabilis'
Zoom In Photo:

The delicate single flowers of 'Mutabilis' look like butterflies perched amongst the red-tinged leaves and airy stems. Vermilion buds open to deep pink flowers which age to light pink, apricot and finally creamy yellow. On an established plant all of these colours will be present at once creating an ever-changing palette of beautiful colour. Will rebloom throughout the season. By far Gary's favourite rose. Plant in a sheltered location out of wind. Tolerant of shade. Impervious to disease.
