I learned about garden roses while planning my wedding. My beloved peonies were out of season, so my florist suggested garden roses. Disappointed, I did some research, and was pleasantly surprised! The garden rose may be the new peony! I fell in love with the Juliet/David Austin rose as evidenced by my bridal bouquet above.
Let's talk about how these beauties are different from standard roses. Not from the grocery store, they are in a completely different league. Their lush, ruffled petals swirl around four different centers to form a rounded bloom. The standard rose has pointed shape petals rotated around one pointed center. Garden roses are softer & puffier looking; standard roses are more pointy.
Colors: punchy-pink Yves Piagets, creamy vanilla Caramel Antikes, intense deep red Piano.
They are all so lush & lovely. Are you as in love with garden roses as I am?
