Flowers From Our Yard: Paradise Rose



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

We've had Paradise rose is our yard for several years now. It's a hybrid tea rose with a delightful fragrance and an unusual color -- a lilac mauve. Needless to say, that makes it fairly unique in our rose garden.

can I tell you and Betsy a long forgotten secret? when I was young, my favorite color was purple. I bought a pair of purple shoes with silver heels. My happiness was dampened when my big sister said it was ugly.

This is a strange looking rose, almost spooky. Wish I could see one in real life, I bet not many people have them.

Very pretty rose and you took the picture at just the perfect time to show it off! The darker colour at the edges of the petals as the blossom opens out makes the rose a stunner. Paradise is a good name for that rose.

Paradise is a perfect name for this beauty. The color is amazing.

That is a gorgeous color!

That is a very unusual color (to me)! We have quite a few roses but none come close to this color.

It's really stunning! I'm surprised roses grow so well where you are...I would think they wouldn't like so much moisture.

I think I had this one, I'm trying to figure out what it was. It died recently and I've been looking all over for another. It has the most wonderful fragrance!
