Queen of Sweden keeps its color?

7 years ago

Hello, I'm relatively new to roses but I've had great success in my first year growing The Generous Gardener and Wollerton Old Hall. I'm now addicted and planning for next year...

The only part I didn't like about TGG was that the very pale pink faded to white in the sun almost immediately. I do have her in a very sunny spot but still. It's basically a white rose for me.

I'd like to add a bit more pink. I love the bloom shape on Queen of Sweden - but I'm worried there will be the same color issue. Does anyone have QOS experience in terms of holding her color a little better? I know some fading is inevitable I just wish it was after the bloom fully opened at least! Maybe I should try a darker pink?
