Garden Party Rose and Unknown English Rose!

I’m pleased to post a photo of a “Garden Party” rose, a hybrid tea. This is its very first bloom in my garden. Debut! I purchased this plant a few months ago – it had no flower buds at the time. It’s a bit difficult to see (photo on the left), so you might want to click on the photo for a better view, but this white rose’s edges are tinged with the a faint but truly lovely pink. It also has a light fragrance – a happy addition to my rose garden!

On the right is an unknown English rose or David Austin rose. I purchased it without a label (at an end of the season plant clearance sale), but was told that it was definitely an English rose. It looks a bit like my James Galway rose, also an English rose (see my previous post about that rose). It has a sweet fragrance. The stunning number of petals tightly packed into a single flower leaves me speechless! I like buying “mystery” plants (non-labeled) to add an interesting element to my garden. For added beauty in your garden, Think Pink!

  1. OHHHHH…I used to have a Garden Party rose! I remember the day I saw it at a nursey as I was driving down the road. The blooms on it were HUGE! I made a quick U-turn and bought it right away…it was so soft, and delicately colored…I hope it will be just great for you! My brother has all my rose bushes now…I gave them up for hibiscus!

  2. That other rose..if it had a very strong scent, that knocked your socks off, it was probably a Sharia Asma rose!! David Austin pink with the best scent of any rose I have ever grown..
