I’d like to introduce you to Andy Arthur (bio is at the bottom of this post), who recently performed a vase test on a newer variety of green rose called Wimbleton. Check it out and let me know what you think!

“Wimbleton” is a relatively new variety of green rose on the wholesale cut flower market. At first glance, it bears a strong resemblance to the variety “Super Green” – it has the cabbage style bloom in deep chartreuse green with a few burgundy accents. I decided to do a vase test to see how it would perform. After 4 days, there was little change – at most there was slight lightening of the inside of the blooms. I don’t expect the blooms to open much at this point, but overall it appears to be a nice variety of green rose.
