'Mutabilis' Bush Rose

  • Sale
  • Regular price $24.90


Pointed flame-coloured buds, opening to butterfly-like, coppery-yellow, single flowers on airy growth; changing to pink and finally coppery-crimson. In full bloom with its multi-colored flowers, it appears to be covered with butterflies.

Mutabilis is Latin for "changeable", "mutable" or "inconstant". Which definitely helps to describe this very unique rose.
