Hello all - I recently purchased several rose bushes from a local garden
center. One of the bushes was labeled "Polar Ice" and was supposed to have
white blooms. However, when the buds began blooming, they were actually
pink. The blooms and leaves look very much like those of my "Queen
Elizabeth" rose, except the blooms on the (obviously mislabled) Polar Ice
bush are a deeper shade of pink than the Queen. Is it possible that this
rose is a Queen Elizabeth also? Does Queen Elizabeth come in varied shades
of pink? Any info is appreciated. Thanks!
