I have a crush on the Queen, the Queen of Sweden rose! Have you seen this beautiful flower? I think it looks like a ranunculus and a peony had a baby. This beautiful flower with its tightly wound but still delicate petals is absolutely stunning. This Queen of Sweden rose from Thanksgiving Point in Utah is breathtaking. The Queen of Sweden rose was bred by David Austin, a familiar name in the garden and rose community. You can visit his website HERE.
This rose from our daughter’s garden is the most common rose I’ve seen in home gardens in our area.
It is lovely with its large bloom and petals open wide to the sun.
It’s just waiting to be picked and displayed on your dining table. Rich in color and familiar to most.
As many of you know hubby has his veggie garden and I have the flower gardens. He tends to them when the weather gets too hot for me though.
I have had terrible luck with growing roses. Roses need a lot of care, bugs love them!
So you have to be diligent in keeping them well protected or your entire bush will go the way of the aphids and earwigs…ewww
This is what has prevented me from planting roses in our gardens.
But, I am willing to try again and plant these beautiful Queen of Sweden roses in our garden.
Do you have roses in your garden? Are you familiar with the Queen of Sweden rose?
