rose for me!

But it’s the rose for me!

Roses in the winter time
Roses in the fall
The roses in my garden
Are the nicest of them all

Some prefer the jasmines
The champaks on the tree
Or the lilies in the pool
But it’s the rose for me!

Rosa ‘Old Blush’, also known as ‘Parsons’ Pink China’, ‘Old Blush China’, ‘Old China Monthly’ etc., is a China rose derived from Rosa chinesis, and is generally accepted as the first East Asian rose cultivar to reach Europe. It is recorded in Denmark in 1752 and England in 1793, but was probably cultivated in China for several centuries

‘Old Blush’ has light silvery pink semi-double flowers of medium size, that darken as they age. They have a light to strong tea fragrance, a cupped to flat bloom form, and an average diameter of 7 centimeters (2.8 in).The red buds appear in clusters almost continuously from early June to the first frost – in warmer regions even throughout the year, and can develop to small, red rose hips.

The shrub has an arching from, few prickles and mid-green leaves that have a crimson color when young. It grows 100 to 150 centimeters (3.3 to 4.9 ft) tall and about 90 to 120 centimeters (3.0 to 3.9 ft) wide, tolerates half shade, poor soils, and is winter hardy down to -18 °C (USDA zone 6 to 7). The cultivar can be trained as a small climber, reaching up to 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) height.

Floribunda roses are bushy shrubs that produce flower clusters of 3 to 15. They are ever blooming and have the same wide color range as do the Hybrid Teas. They are especially valuable for their ability to adapt to a wide range of temperature and soil conditions. Vavoom has the color that’ll do the trick. Its bright orange juice tones might make your eyes pucker…but its sweet treat of glowing color last tothe very end of every long-lived blossom. Put that gleaming orange against deep mahogany red new growth & glossy green leaves.  Vavoom’s bright orange juice tones might make your eyes pucker…but its sweet treat of glowing colour lasts to the very end of every long-lived blossom.

Hybrid Tea Double Delight Roses

Hybrid Tea Double Delight Roses

The most delightful thing about Double Delight rose is it’s startling contrast between the layers of the bright cherry red outer petals and the creamy white heart. The rose blooms are creamy white at first, with just a red tinge on the outer petals, but as they mature so do the extent of the red coloring, especially in hot climates. Beautiful double blooms with an eye-catching color combination and fantastic fragrance. The large, somewhat informal, old-fashioned, 24-30 petals are of rich, creamy white edged strawberry red.

There is one other Deity who came to have a deep connection to the symbolism of the rose, and that is the Goddess Isis. Many of the Gods and Goddesses mentioned above came to have an association with Her eventually, as Her worship spread throughout the Mediterranean region and the Roman empire. In Her role as She of Ten Thousand Names, Isis was corresponded to many other Goddesses, taking on their attributes, both in and outside of Egypt. By the Greco-Roman period, when the rose had become a popular addition to religious festivals and secular feasts of the Romans and the Greeks, this flower had become intricately associated with Isis, and the association would only deepen over time.
