MR1 again

Here's that carolina rose hybrid "MR1" again at different stages of bloom. It's not easy to capture the color of this one, but it starts out close to its maternal grandma 'Fragrant Cloud' and lightens a little as it opens showing off the yellow tints from its father 'Carefree Sunshine'. The only two traits that are obviously from maternal grandpa Rosa carolina are the once-blooming habit and some of the foliage appearance. Oh and maybe also some of the health and vigor!
