Cl. Butterscotch/Jactan is a favorite, but the color just seems wrong for butterscotch. I think butterscotch has more red in it than pictured. For example, Jell-O butterscotch pudding. Guess I�ll have to buy some butterscotch candy for comparison. Any opinions? By the way, the 1989 J&P catalog pictures their new Cl. Butterscotch, and the photo and description, in my opinion, doesn't look like my beautiful tan/yellow colored rose.

Whoops! Wrong date and Memorial Day before the 31st just seems wrong.

I think the rose looks like butterscotch, but more beautiful than the candy.

Looks really close to my Cl. Butterscotch. Mine is a little more tan right now. I took a pic of it for on here, but then, couldn't seem to post the pic. Oh well! I think different times of year and diff zones contribute to the color. After many, many years, most friends love it. Beautiful rose form. And some just do not like the color. I love this rose. Thanks for posting yours

Looks right for JACtan to me. Rose pigments are so extremely variable, particularly the funny colors. While they CAN look about the same for long periods, they won't always. Yours looks just fine and well within the range of colors I've experienced on the plants I've grown. Kim

I think it's beautiful and looks just like Butterscotch to me!

Mine's just getting large enough to let bloom. Starts out that yummy butterscotch color then gradually fades to parchment, then gray.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to reply. This is a truly beautiful rose, and a favorite.
