Rosa mundi

My Rosa Mundi (two years old) has bloomed for the first time. I got it from High Country Roses.

I expected a striped, variegated rose, but this is one solid color, all fuscia-deep pink.

Why? Any ideas?

It's reverted to the Apothecary Rose. It will do that. Mine is often part one, part the other.

RE: Rosa mundi

My Rosamundi is also in its second year. The beginning of the spring bloom cycle was striped as expected. However, now there are approximately 4 blooms and all are solid pink.
We recently had a major wind storm and I wonder if the trauma caused by the wind caused the reversion?
