Desdemona Hedging Bunde - Medium Hedge

10 Roses

Pretty peachy pink buds open to reveal beautiful, pure white blooms, with an attractive hint of pink at the earliest stage of flowering. The blooms are chalice-shaped; the incurved petals creating an arresting interplay of light and shadow. Over time, the blooms open a little wider, just enough to catch a glimpse of the pretty stamens within. They flower over an exceptionally long season, maintain their shape during wet weather. A lovely Old Rose and almond blossom fragrance with hints of cucumber and lemon zest.
