The top 10 pink roses for this wedding season
We’re close to the start of the wedding season of 2017, so it’s time we are going to make up our minds. We went ahead of you and selected 10 varieties of pink roses that have proved their popularity last year, and are definitely going to be a hit the coming season. Enjoy!
10. Romantic Antike
Romantic Antike is a huge cabbage shaped, dirty pink rose with a mild fragrance. The outer petals are a bright pink, while her center has more blush tones.
The Romantic Antike rose is the genetic sister of the rose Caramel Antike and looks like the cabbage roses of old Dutch masters’ paintings. Romantic Antike has a great vase life and is terrific for vase work, also because of her size.
9. Yves Piaget Pink
Besides the great shape it has also the fantastic scent, as fresh as the normal Yves Piaget rose.
The David Austin Wedding Rose collection offers many pink roses in different hues and shapes. Miranda was part of the second generation of David Austin’s Cut Roses and remains very popular today for weddings and events. This rose is remarkable for the giant blooms, made up of approximately 120 wavy petals, perfectly arranged to form beautiful, almost flat rosettes.
When fully open, the heart of the David Austin Wedding Rose Miranda is a pure rose pink, while the outer petals pale to the softest shade of pink.
At the bud stage, the outer petals can be seen to have a lovely streaked green effect, which adds to the garden style, creating a look reminiscent of a parrot tulip. These outer petals gradually turn back and are hidden as the blooms open.
David Austin Wedding Rose Miranda has a delicate fruity fragrance.
7. Pink O’Hara
The premium scented garden rose Pink O’hara is a large, French, pink rose, with a slight darker tinge at the center, that opens up fully in a quartered way.
The scented garden rose Pink O’Hara has a more traditional rose shape, but is filled with layers and layers of petals that give a wonderful rose scent. Pink O’hara would be perfect to use in bouquets or centerpieces for a romantic garden wedding or mix with pinks for a charming bridal or baby shower.
The scented garden rose Pink O’Hara is very fragrant (5 stars out of 5) and often used for weddings and special events. It is hardy to ship and its vase life is extraordinary. A perfect Pink garden rose!
The David Austin Wedding rose Rosalind is a Peony shaped garden rose is a creamy pink focal flower with some lavender undertones. Incredibly ruffled, much like a peony this fragrant David Austin bloom is super packed up to 160 luxurious petals.
Rosalind is remarkable for the gorgeous fruity fragrance. Small, blush pink buds open slowly to form beautiful, peony-like blooms. Each bloom has a large button eye in the style of the old garden roses. Created exclusive by David Austin, Rosalind is a special rose for a special event.
The Stunning David Austin Wedding Rose Keira has natural charm and glorious, vintage-style blooms. This unusual rose breaks all the normal rules for the cut flower industry, because each rose is subtly different in colour, being a beautiful blend of blush pink and cream, often with warm peachy highlights. Some blooms have an irregular flush of pink that highlights the edge of the outer petals, creating a very soft picotee effect. We think that this variation adds to the natural charm of the rose.
The flowers of the David Austin Wedding Rose Keira are beautiful at all stages: the small, plump buds opening into glorious, rounded young blooms that eventually form spectacular cupped rosettes, each with around 100 petals. The edges of the outer petals have an attractive, lightly waved effect. There is a medium-strong rose fragrance.
This David Austin Wedding Rose Keira, perhaps more than any other, looks like it has been freshly cut from the garden. This makes it particularly effective when combined with seasonal flowers, herbs and foliage for a romantic, garden-inspired look.
4. Princesse Charlene de Monaco
The Meilland Jardin & Parfum collection offers some of the most iconic pink roses. The Rose Princesse Charlene de Monaco has superb gradient pastels in delicate, salmon-pink. It is a great rose with surprisingly few petals.
It has a beautiful, sweet and fruity fragrance. The rose Princesse Charlene de Monaco is a remarkable rose and holds well in a fully open form. A great performer with medium-long vase life.
The Rose Princesse Charlene de Monaco is wonderful for flower arrangements, bridal bouquets and blush weddings. Or just as a eye-catching “mono-floral” bouquet of only these pink roses in a nice vase.
The garden rose Princesse Charlene de Monaco is magical in the hands of floral designers.
3. Prince Jardinier
Prince Jardinier garden roses are very light pink and ultra-romantic scented roses that can open up to an almost saucer shaped bloom. These are very open, soft and swirly roses and petals open wide enough to expose the center pollen. The rose Prince Jardinier has the swirled velvet petal structure typical of garden roses as well as a particularly romantic feel.
These pink roses are an overall soft to very pale light ballet pink shade. Garden rose flowers are a classic and elegant look for beautiful brides and make sophisticated wedding bouquets, boutonnieres or any arrangements.
2. Yves Piaget
The diva of the Piaget family, the Yves Piaget rose, once seen is never forgotten. This gloriously strong scented rose with a hint of sunny citrus has an average of 80 layers of petals, with a bright to light pink color. Like an enormous scoop of strawberry ice cream, it’s hard to resist.
The Yves Piaget Rose is bred in France and introduced in 1985. The large-flowered Yves Piaget Rose is sometimes known as ‘Queen Adelaide.’ This award-winner is known for its sweet scent and large, full-petaled, pink blossoms reminiscent of the old garden roses grown during English Queen Adelaide’s reign in the nineteenth century.
Named for the famous Swiss clock maker who makes the trophy for the best rose in the Geneva rose competition. Perfectly combines old-fashioned form, strong color and rich fragrance.
1. Peony Pink
The heavenly Scented Premium Garden Rose ‘Peony Pink’ is like no other. With a perfect peony shaped flower and the most romantic fruity scent it is one of our most beautiful roses. The color is very light pink.
The fragrance is very strong, an English Rose myrrh fragrance with lemon and almond hints. The flowers have a medium, cupped bloom form. Its delicate shell pink petals opening fully to resemble a peony.
