Top 10 pink roses

Posted on August 27, 2015 by Potter & Rest

We’re tickled pink about this…according to research conducted by The Horticultural Trades Association, more than 49% of Brits with a garden, grow roses. Hooray!

The red rose is of course, apparently, the most traditional bloom of the bunch to grow, but we like to change things up here, so are going all out for those pretty pink petals. Don’t forget autumn is a perfect time to get your roses in as the ground is still lovely and warm and snuggly for their roots. Here are 10 of our favourite pink roses:

Floribunda Rose ‘Tickled Pink’

This Rose of the Year 2007 has generous masses of pink flowers that have a medium scent.

Rose Constance Spry (Ausfirst)

Constance Spry from David Austin Roses™ produces magnificent, pure rose pink, deeply cupped blooms of luminous delicacy. It offers every shade of pink. It has a very strong myrrh fragrance. In fact, it was this rose that introduced the myrrh fragrance to the English Roses.

Rose James Galway™ (Auscrystal)

This rose has neatly formed rosettes with a delicious old rose scent. It is exceptionally reliable and healthy, and almost thornless. It is repeat-flowering.
