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)
