Alexandra Farms announced the latest additions to their collections. Among the new releases are three varieties belonging to the diverse Deluxe Garden Rose Collection. Quicksand, with its sophisticated and on-trend sand and cream colors, has a large, spiral-shaped bloom. Sahara Sensation is also new this year. She has a sandy, faintly golden color, and petals that unfold in scalloped waves with hints of pink around the edges. Commonly grown as a spray rose, the variety is grown at the farm in Colombia as a regular-sized garden rose. Finally, there is Amnesia, with her extraordinary tones that shift from dusty lavender to pale grey-green. They began shipping this variety in late 2019.
Princess Japanese garden roses
The two new Princess varieties were developed by breeders in Japan. Princess Kaori (Fragrant) has an extraordinary blueish lavender color, a large bloom and a sweet fragrance of lavender. The first spray variety is called Princess Midori (Green). Each stem bears at least four or five small blooms in a unique, intense green shade. This variety lends a lively burst of energy to any arrangement. Both varieties are exclusively grown by Alexandra Farms.
Alexandra Farms is continually searching for garden rose varieties worthy of a welcome into their family of fragrant, romantic cut roses for weddings and everyday designs. No rose will be accepted that does not meet the minimum standard of a 10-day vase life after it has been nurtured, harvested, carefully packaged and shipped under the expert care of the rose-loving team in Bogotá, Colombia.
