"The Vikings are coming"

Rosa Eskelund, owner of Roses Forever recognizes a large demand for Viking roses. "Scandinavian retailers are even asking for these roses. Lately, a large Norwegian flower chain, Mester Grøn started an agreement with a Kenyan grower, who will grow these roses exclusively for them." says the Danish breeder.

The roses are bred by Rosa Eskelund and are cut flowers with the appearance of a garden rose. "The roses are long lasting and some have a spectacular green centre and are even scented" she says.
