a fairy tale of roses

This rose, which is Floral Fairy Tale, opened right in the middle of an intense heat wave a few days ago. My very first rose bloom ! And it’s a gorgeous one !

I was expecting this to be a little more pink, but I love the light peach so I’m not at all disappointed. I counted just over 30 buds on this plant, and Pomponella has double that… is this even possible after planting bareroots less than 2 months ago ?! Perhaps it’s because they are floribunda roses, so that helps with the amount of buds on a plant. I am anxious for what’s to come with these roses.

Isn’t it a beauty ?

  1. I see what you mean about the peach color! It looks like something you’d find in those fake flowers you find in stores, with the few raindrops for effect. It’s so beautiful in reality, and not in cloth, that it’s easy to see why people would want to try to imitate it. Wow.

  2. Fabulous Photo! Amazing to know this is your first lovely bloom. Here in Texas, we get our early blooms in March and now buds are scarce on the bushes baking in the summer heat. Your fairy tale rose has me already dreaming about next Spring.
