The Mayesh Minute: Juliet Garden Rose Substitutes


Spring is in the air, which means wedding season will kick into high gear soon.  With David Austin Juliet garden roses still being requested by brides across the country, we can promise you that the demand will still greatly out weigh the supply once again.  I hear your collective groan, but it is our job to suggest alternative peach roses that you can present to your brides.  For Juliet substitutes, David Dahlson presents the following varieties:  Campanella, David Austin Edith, Carpe Diem, and peach Finesse.

Baronesse, Mariatheresia & David Austin Charity Garden Roses



One of our great suppliers of garden roses, Alexandra Farms, sent over some beautiful pictures of Baronesse, Mariatheresia, and David Austin Charity to share with you.  Get out your pinning button because you will surely want to add these images to your inspiration boards!

Baronesse and Mariatheresia are great pink roses. Baronesse is the darker of the two, more of a medium pink and Mariatheresia the light pink version. Both have the exact same shape of an English garden rose: a full rosette that starts off rather small, but opens all the way flat into a incredibly large bloom. They have great vase life of 8-10 days in the vase after 5 days of shipping and they have no fragrance.






A relatively new variety of David Austin garden rose is Charity – a Mayesh exclusive.  Being a new variety also means that quantities are extremely limited, so please be patient with us when ordering as we may not be able to provide them to everyone that orders.  This beauty consists of about 153 fragrant pale pink petals with peach overtones and a prominent green stamen.
