This incredible flower is straight from my mother’s garden! There is nothing like the fragility of an English rose. So delicate and exquisite… My mom says this rose is known as a Gertrude Jekyll*. Known by its deep pink color and a perfectly balanced Old Rose scent. The blooms begin as little scrolled buds that open into large, rosette-shaped flowers.
*Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932) was a noted garden designer, British horticulturist, writer and artist. She is widely regarded to have been “a premier influence in garden design” by English and American gardening enthusiasts.
