I accidentally purchased a Kimberlina and just cannot get a handle on the coloring. In some photos it looks baby or cotton candy pink. Other photos show a tinge of lilac or it being a white pink blend. How would you describe this rose and it's coloring?

RE: Kimberlina?

I just got one about a month ago and let one bud bloom. It was definitely baby pink, but a cooler tone (versus a warmer tone), definitely not hot pink. However, it was cool and wet here so I can see where the color could be faded in the heat.

RE: Kimberlina?

It's cool here too.. Not cold..wet, Not often. I haven't received it yet and am wondering what I will do with it. While I have soft and medium pink roses, I do not have baby pink. I thought I might plant it along a walkway with Marie Pavie instead of Clotilde Soupert but the color possibility is a concern.


RE: Kimberlina?

Well, it blooms all the time, so you are going to have to get used to it! She's a bloomin' fool. I usually call that color "common pink" because it is the most common pink to show up in seedlings. They definitely picked this rose for commercialization because of its bloomiferousness, not its color.

I like this one.
