New David Austin introductions for 2014
I saw a website highlighting 3 new varieties of D.A. roses that will likely be introduced at the Chelsea Flower Show in May, 2014. One of them is a yellow, the first yellow he's introduced in 10 years. The others are a pink and a pale pink.
To my mind the pink, Olivia Rose Austin, is the best of the lot. I look forward to seeing it in the U.S.
The pale pink, Lady of the Lake, has interesting color but the flower seems to have weak petals that flop a little - maybe it's a bad photo. I'll reserve judgement until after the show.
The yellow, The Poet's Wife, is - to me - a disappointment. It looks too much like a Peony. Again, maybe the angle is bad or it's just a poor picture. I'm hoping it looks better than that.
I've posted a link where I saw the pictures.
