Peony Pink: heavenly scented roses
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.
Lolita Lempicka: a striking magenta
The rose Lolita Lempicka is a French scented rose from the Meilland Jardin
& Parfum collection in a striking pink magenta color.
Lolita Lempicka has a powerful, woody fragrance. A complex scent with hints
of jasmine and fruits, such as apple, apricot and lime.
David Austin Tess: deep red scented roses
David Austin Wedding Rose Tess’s spectacular blooms are made up of many,
sumptuous, deep royal red petals. They begin as rounded buds, with prettily
waved edges. When fully open, the large outer petals surround smaller ruffled
petals, forming magnificent, saucer-shaped rosettes, which give the
impression of great depth.
Each bloom displays a central cluster of attractive golden yellow stamens.
There is a very light and pleasant tea fragrance.
Yves Piaget: like a scoop of strawberry ice cream
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.
Yves Piaget is named after 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.
David Austin Keira: Vintage style with a natural charm
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 color, being a beautiful
blend of blush pink and cream, often with warm peachy highlights.
The lovely Keira has a medium-strong rose fragrance. 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.
Pink O’Hara: highly fragrant scented roses
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 is very fragrant (5 stars out of 5!) and often
used for weddings and special events. She has a more traditional rose shape, but
is filled with layers and layers of petals that give a wonderful rose scent.
Prince Jardinier: a light pink, ultra-romantic choice
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 the petals open wide enough to expose the center pollen.
Prince Jardinier has the swirled velvet petal structure typical of garden roses as well
as a particularly romantic feel. With a strong sweet fragrance and enormous blooms,
this variety is a perfect pick for Valentine’s Day.
Yves Piaget Pink: a fantastic scent
The Rose Pink Yves Piaget was found accidentally as a mutant of the normal Yves Piaget
rose at the Tambuzi farm in Kenya. Besides the great shape it has also the fantastic scent,
as fresh as the normal Yves Piaget rose.
The original Yves Piaget Rose is bred in France and introduced in 1985. ‘ 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.
David Austin Kate: from magenta pink to hints of purple
Kate is beautiful at all stages as the long elegant buds with attractive, silvery magenta pink
outer petals gradually open to wide blooms of up to four inches across. The David Austin
Wedding Rose Kate has many magenta pink petals which give the overall impression of rich
raspberry pink. As the roses age the petals deepen in color, taking on hints of purple.
The fragrance is a beautifully balanced, pure rose fragrance with what our fragrance expert,
Robert Calkin, describes as having a “touch of after-rain freshness”. There are also subtle hints
of raspberry, redcurrant, geranium and bergamot. The fragrance varies in intensity as the flower ages.
Princesse Charlene de Monaco: a royal beauty
The Rose Princess Charlene of Monaco offers 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.
David Austin Capability: a rose scent with spicy overtones
From the David Austin Wedding Rose collection, the rose Capability is deeply-colored with rich
raspberry tones. She has a medium rose scent with some spicy overtones.
Capability is a luxury rose with a vase life of 7-9 days, making her perfect for weddings, events,
special celebrations and everyday floral arrangements.
Lady Killer: a Valentine’s classic
When you think of a classic red rose, the rose Lady Killer is what should come to mind. A striking
pure red rose with velvet petals and a strong, delicious scent.

perfect for romantic floral work and Valentine’s Day.
