A very novel ‘backwards’ bi-color whose lighter color of deep golden yellow is carried on the inside of the petals with a darker bronzy orange-red backside. Usually, bicolors have the lighter color on the outside of the petal & a darker inside. Plump pointed buds open to large full old-fashioned blossoms. 4" blooms. As the flowers mature, they blush & blend through a very pleasing array of colors all the way to the very finish. This tall 5-6ft super-vigorous plant yields long stems lush with clean deep green leaves. Light fragrance.
Easy-to-grow & loaded with color. Excellent disease-resistance. About Face is a Grandiflora. 2005 AARS Winner.
