About Face

Rosa Grandiflora 'About Face'

Sold as bare root rose

A topsy-turvy attention-getter, this bi-color medal-grabber makes your eyeballs salute 'cause the two colors are outside-in. Or is it inside-out? The lighter lasting golden-orange color is on the inside with a distinct darker bronzy-red outside. Yet it's not just the flying colors that will cause a flap. It's a turning point as a plant, too, with superb vigor, lush clean green leaves and loads of bloom.

Interesting Notes

About Face: To no one's surprise, hybridizing wizard Tom Carruth has produced yet another AARS winner--his sixth!--and this one is already causing quite the buzz throughout Rosedom. About Face is a traffic-stopping bi-colored Grandiflora, and somewhat of an oddity in the rose world because the inside is soft golden yellow, while the reverse is a darker orangy-bronze (bi-colors are usually lighter on the reverse). One of its parents is an earlier Carruth masterpiece, the popular 2003 AARS winner Hot Cocoa. Gardeners who've tested About Face report vigorous growth, very fast rebloom, and an amazing abundance of flowers. The full vivacious blossoms reach up to 5" in diameter, and the exceptionally long stems are ideal for cutting. What a show-off! Dr. Leda, 2004
