Topsy Turvy rose

The floribunda Topsy Turvy is a colorful and fast repeating rose which brings a welcome splash of brightness to the garden. From a distance it appears a darkish orange, but close up one sees a rich mix of tones, from the scarlet-red of the inner petals, softened by the white reverse in the opening blooms. This delightful toning lures the viewer to walk in for a closer look. A rose which just keeps throwing out new blooms is an asset in the garden. When it does so in such an enticing manner, so much the better.

And a shot of an upside down Topsy Turvey cluster which seems entirely appropriate given its name. The rose has a tendency to droop in this manner. The white reverse is seen here to good effect. ( file#8495)
