Why I Love Rose Carmeline (And You Should, Too!)
Category: Garden Roses
Pink Rose Carmeline features a stunning blend of pink petals that will leave you breathless but after you smell it you will definitely fell in love with it. A ruffled, bubbly pink center eye delicately fades to a creamier pink that will make this rose the absolute perfect accent flower for your arrangement! These lovely blooms have an incredibly high petal count and a whirly, swirly center. What is not to like here.
Colour and shape
This is a rose of exceptional delicacy and charm, perhaps more so than any other rose I know. The flowers are shallowly cupped and about 3 inches across; the petals arranged in a most perfect rosette formation – their colour being a very pure soft pink; the outer petals brighten a little towards the edge. It bears some resemblance to an old Alba Rose such as ‘Queen of Denmark’.
When it comes to smell this rose is definitely a winner. There is a delightful, fresh, fruity fragrance with hints of star anise and lemon. Not your usual perfume rose smell but a sophisticated mix with its own charm.
New rose on the market
This rose was introduced to the cut rose market fairly recently and so is attention-grabbing and quite sensational.
