Default Golden Memories rose colour change

Hello,

I was given a Golden Memories rose a couple of years ago and it has grown well with a good crop of golden yellow roses , but this year some are pink in colour !
The buds start off as pink and continue to grow to full size still being pink, the others start off as a yellow bud and grow into full size golden yellow.
I am not a expert gardener , but my wife is a very keen gardener and she is as surprised as I am.
I have attached a couple of photos to give an idea of what they look like.

Any ideas anyone ? We like the look as it's so strange.

Regards from Neale.

Many, if not most, of the roses sold today are grafted onto a root stock that's completely different than the variety you're buying. Check to see if the branch with the pink rose is coming from below the graft.

Many thanks for your reply , I've had a look and it looks as if the pink rose is coming from the same graft as the yellow ones , but I'll check tomorrow when the grandchildren are not 'helping me'

A quick update , I've checked the rose branches that have pink and also yellow roses come from the same stem and branch , most strange , but we like the look as it makes a change !
