Versicolor Pink Carefree Beauty

Is it common for this rose to produce canes where all bloom are are “versicoloured” ? Other cane blooms “ normal pink ”.

Any experience on whether cane bloom hips have a high probability of reproducing versicolouring?

Or if legal cuttings of cane reproducing pattern or is it roll the dice?

Portland’s Best Rose

Is this annual June award based on the title for that day for Portland conditions, or is a long testing record also considered by the “international rose expert judges”?

Looking to understand background merits of award ... future pilgrimage trip (this year) background research question reason.
