I could,t understand why it happens.its not because the blooms are getting older & changes the color, not because of fertilization, not because of sun light they receive.

Umar bhai Sharifa Asma at my place has an entirely different shade. In fact had it not come with tags, I would have thought that it is something like Champagne Moment or Chandos Beauty but it came with the tags of Sharifa Asma. Please have a look at the pics....

These pics were taken two days back. Could it be due to difference in soil but seeing the shape of flower, it doesn't look like a Sharifa Asma to me at all.

Well Sir the first image does not appear to be of Asma Sharifa whose image is being shown below. The shape of the flower in the 2nd image matches that of Asma Sharifa but colour is light yellow instead of pink.

In addition two further images can be viewed in below link.

Umar bhai beautiful pictures- it is an utmost beautiful rose and one of my favourties!

Mikhurram it is that delightful cup shape with the pink centre which looks so elegant!

And KBW I would say that the plant you have is not Sharifa Asma. Sharifa Asma also has distinct leaves- you can tell even without the flowers. I would say perhaps get it rechecked? OR maybe the nursery got the tags mixed up? What does it smell like?

Khurram sb, both pics are of the same bush, just a different set of buds.

It smells like Sharifa Asma, the leaves are also quite similar to Sharifa Asam but it doesn't really look like Sharifa Asam. I recognize the scent pretty well.
What intrigued me is the fact taht on many occasions I have photographed same rose in different countries and in different parts of Pakistan. One is at times absolutely amazed to see the difference in shade and it can happen due to change in climate and soil. If you see pics in the rose database which have mostly been taken by me, you would notice that the same rose at times might look quite different in a different climate / soil. The scent may also drastically vary with area and even on the same bush, during different seasons. This is what makes a rose such an interesting plant to study :)
