Rosa rugosa X 'Hazeldean'

I held a bloom of 'Hazeldean' up against some of the flowers of the hybrid seedling (Rosa rugosa X 'Hazeldean') so that you can see how much of the color saturation was lost.
I'm gonna try to get a picture of these two, and Rosa xanthina, and its hybrid with rugosa, all in one picture. That would be neat to see. Cross my fingers they'll all be in bloom simultaneously.
