Okay...What's Happening?

This is my beautiful coral rose bush. I've had it for years, and it blooms the most beautiful, big coral roses, that over time, turn to a pale coral, and then a pale pinkish color.

This year, I have these pretty red roses blooming.....


....on the same bush as my coral roses!
I also have a pale pink rose bush in my front yard (totally different breed of rose than the coral one) that is blooming bright red roses, instead of the pink ones, this year. And they are not the same type of rose as the pale pink ones.
I am not a gardening pro, but I've never seen this happen before. What's going on?
Somebody? Anybody??

Well I am no expert , but I think your rose bushes got a little frisky and did some cross breeding! That is all I can figure out! LOL
I have boxwood bushes that are half dead this year and I saw other peoples that way too. It was a veryyyy cold and long winter here in Michigan!
Will pop in again soon~

I know nothing about roses or gardening so I can't answer your question. Only thing I can say is the roses are gorgeous no matter what color they are.

Love your new banner too. Very pretty!

I am no expert too but my guess would be the soil.. the content of soil and also the types of fertilizers you used.. maybe..

nevertheless, the roses look beautiful!

You might find that it's the colour of the flower of the original tree that your Coral rose has been grafted onto. If it is a grafted tree that is! If not, then I really have no idea why the colour has changed.
I'm sure that roses can be grafted, just as they do with citrus trees. If there are shoots coming from below the big knobbly bit near the base of the trunk, and the flowers on these are the red ones, then I think that will be the answer. Your local nursery should be able to explain it for you Debi. :)

P.s. Have you changed the logo at the top of your blog? I must have missed the change, if there was one! lol. Looks really lovely anyway!

Pam was right. Hybrid tea roses are a mix of one type of rose root, and they graft on the "top" part. What you see there is called a sucker.

They grow from the base of the rosebush and will almost always show that "wild red rose" as the flower.

While it's a pain, the only thing you can do is cut back right flush with the bush every one of those canes. If you do not, they will take over the more delicate growing "top" part, and you will have a wild rose!
