Coral Rose Buds

Right outside my kitchen door is a very floriforous rose bush. The rose buds start out a startling shade of coral. Once the bud opens the bloom is a subtle shade of peach with yellow undertones.

I struggle with this rose bush because it is prone to suffer the blight of powdery mildew and rust. The initial bloom of the season is the most prolific. After this bloom, I will work to prune back some of the stems so the bush will be well ventilated.
