Frank's Flowers - The Eiffel Tower Rose
 
A few months ago I showed you how to Prune & Trim Roses and in that post I promised that I would show you how to start a rose bush from cut roses.......well, I just ran out of time this year.  I do apologize - but this will be one of the first posts in the spring next year. 
 
However, this year I will still feature a few of my father's roses.
 
Today's Flower Feature is The Eiffel Tower Rose.
I look at this beauty and the song "La Vie En Rose" starts running through my head.  For those of you out there who don't know any French - "rose" in French actually means "pink" and "vie" means "life".  So literally, the title of this song means "the life in pink, or in shades of pink".  When you look at this stunning rose your world turns pink - there is nothing else - you can't look away - it is mesmerizing.  Oh! and the fragrance!  Many roses can be sickeningly floral but this rose has a clean, green, cooling scent that is so intense and wonderful.  Out of all of my dad's roses I think that this rose is one of the best smelling roses.  The "Eiffel Tower Rose" is a very tall rose bush with barely any thorns - many times the stem looks like someone came along and snapped off all of the thorns but it just grows that way. 

I wish that I could send all of you an "Eiffel Tower Rose" but shipping costs being what they are - please ENJOY these digital versions of this fantastic flower!

  1. What lovely roses, and practically thornless -- a big bonus! I wish I could put my nose to the screen and smell!

  5. This rose is gorgeous - pinks are my favorite. It reminds me so much of my "Princess Elizabeth" floribunda.

    Also thanks for the kind words you left on my blog. I really appreciate it.
