David Austin’s ‘Rosalind’ Variety

David Austin’s ‘Rosalind’ Variety

As you search for the right flowers for your wedding, I strongly encourage you to consider David Austin roses, because these true garden varieties have all the lishness and fullness of a peony. The are simply beautiful, with what seems to be an endless number of petals.

Rosalind has a strong fragrance, complex and deliciously fruity, unlike so many cut flowers these days. The blush-pink buds open slowly to reveal gorgeous, peony-like blooms. The outer petals are the palest pink contrasting nicely with the dusky pink shades deep in the heart of the bloom. The chalice-shaped blooms are very full, packed with up to 160 petals. Each bloom has a classic button eye in the style of the old garden roses.

I see this pale pink rose as being perfect for a summer evening wedding, a daytime beach wedding, or a garden wedding. They look wonderful alone, like in the photo, or mixed with other flowers. Using them as a feature flower, I would mix them with lilies, freesia and hydrangea–all wrapped together in a hand-tied bouquet.
