I LOVE being able to share with you anything new and today I get to do just that! One of our major design contest sponsors, Alexandra Farms, just announced their new 2013 garden rose varieties. They are constantly testing new varieties at their farm in Tocancipa and have tested over 500 rose varieties already!
Alexandra Farms has approved 10 garden rose varieties for commercial production next year. A few of these will be available in solid boxes starting in May 2013 – below is a sneak peak.
P.S. Please be aware that new varieties are always tough to get in quantities. When ordering specific varieties, no matter the product, always have back-ups planned with your rep.
Precious Moments: is along lasting, symmetrical, light purple variety with excellent lasting qualities.
Cinnamon Spice: is a brown or terracotta rose with a bright yellow center and terrific dark green, shiny foliage.
Perfumella: is a large, peach colored, deep cupped rose with a strong myrrh fragrance.
Lemon Piano: is the newest member of the Piano family and is a light green version of our round deep cupped shaped collection.
Code 4575: is a fabulous white rose with hundreds of petals forming a symmetrical but somewhat disorderly center.
Gospel: is fragrant, dark purple and fabulous! Large heads with delicate stems, hundreds of petals and what a shape!
