yellow rose with magenta spots
when i bought this cultivar, named "jalitah", the label promised it would look like this: http://foto.mein-schoener-garten.de/neu,foto,user,cameo,654616,orig.html

unfortunately, mine blooms just plain yellow. except this latest blossom is sporting magenta spots. i've been wondering whether it might've been a label mixup, though in general the rose does comform to the description. maybe it's something in the soil, or something missing, that would get it to bloom according to type?

I think the spots are a disease or something, mine get that every once in awhile.

As to the rose not blooming true to description/label, it could be several things. It could have been mis-labeled at the nursery, it could be the soil conditions aren't ideal. It could also be a young plant??? I've noticed my roses are blooming better (colour/scent wise) now that they are a few to several years old. How long ago did you buy yours?

Keep an eye on it but you might notice some slight colour shifts over the next few years.

I get those spots on our roses sometimes, I don't usually bother treating but then I'm lazy and try to not treat every single little thing.

Of course it is. It's a teenager. It has spots!

I'm not a rose expert (Robin McKinley would be the person to ask!) but I wonder whether they are indeed the same cultivar - this one seems to have straighter leaves and looks - at least from this angle - to be less complex than the ones I've seen in images.
