Alexandra Farms, Colombian fresh-cut garden roses, announces the latest additions to their collections. "We continually search for and test garden roses to find those that are worthy of a welcome into our family of unique varieties. In addition to special colors, shapes, and fragrances, roses must have at least a 10-day vase life after being nurtured, harvested, carefully packaged, and shipped under the expert care of our team in Bogotá, Colombia."
Deluxe Garden Roses
"As its name suggests, there's no other comfort quite like the light mocha and mauve petals of Café Latte. This much-loved variety has a unique color, shape, and fragrance. Her strong lavender scent emits through layers of spiral-petaled blooms for a sophisticated and surprising touch. This highly sought-after variety is a true delight!"
"Waves of sand-colored petals are touched lightly by the reflection of sunset pink in the Australian-bred Just Magic's ethereal blooms. Each rose is uniquely toned but effortlessly chic. With a large bloom and long vase life of 10 days, Just Magic is an essential addition to any dreamscape design."
"Menta's sophisticated light lavender bloom opens slowly to reveal an earthy, quietly elegant flower. Her sharp-edged petals are mysterious and intriguing, and her spiral bloom opens wide into a large, starry-pointed flower with an exceptional vase life of 12 days. Menta is a standout among the sought-after selection of neutral-colored roses."
"Notre Dame boasts an interesting juxtaposition of lavender, sandy pink, and gray-centered buds that uniquely melt into a light mint green. Like watercolors on a canvas, the spiral petals blend effortlessly together to create a fluid transition. A 12-day vase life helps this Dutch-bred variety make a lasting impression."
"Richly colored blooms of dark tan with edges dipped in dark, earthy pink make Symbol a dramatic flower that begs for the spotlight. Her large, long-lasting blooms open widely, holding their shape with tightly furled petals at the center and graceful curves on her edges. This Dutch-bred beauty is a showstopper."
David Austin Wedding Roses
"Bessie's (Ausperidot) buttery cream-colored petals form the quintessential English garden rose. She has a deep, symmetrical cup shape with 100 petals carefully furled inside. She is a consistent performer and opens 90 percent over several days. With her large, warm blooms and light floral scent, Bessie is a dignified and timeless classic."
Princess Garden Roses
"Buttery yellow melts into the heart of Princess Hoshi Spr's enveloping white spiral petals. This long-lasting rose will provide a touch of warmth to any design or stand confidently alone to make a statement. Her tasteful petite blooms conjure an appetite for the savory addition of botanical greens or whimsical whites and creams to create the perfect arrangement. Each stem of this Japanese spray variety has five blooms. Princess Hoshi Spr is only available through Alexandra Farms."
