    Many years ago, the Le Grice rose breeders seemed to specialise in roses with complex subtle colours like parchment, stormy skies, bruises (painful but colourful). I can't find any of theirs still available from other sellers. Does anyone know who might sell them or similar? I've seen some creamy brown ones, but not the mauvy yellowy ones.
