We have more beautiful Roses in the shop this week. Continuing my love affair with the Rose, I was absolutely smitten when this new variety arrived. It is the softest shade of peach, with hints of green in the outer guard petals. I like using it in bouquets with limey green Viburnum and berries, or rich russety Hypericum, Lilies or Alstromeria to add depth and warmth.
Peach Avalanche shares the same gorgeous fullness as its sisters Avalanche (the original - creamy white with hints of green) and Sweet Avalanche (softest blush pink), and has the most wondrous spirals that make me want to just sit and contemplate them in dreamy reverie. Ahh I'm such a romantic!
Below is another rose which is great for weddings. Artemis is a creamy, buttery shade that works really with lots of different combinations. With ivory, buttercream, or dresses with a hint of gold, with lemons, blues, creams, to add warmth, with stronger golden honey shades. It has a neat medium sized head, so is a great size for buttonholes too. An unassuming little rose, that shouldn't be overlooked.
