The Midcentury Moderns
I have taken an interest in roses from the 40's and 50's.
During this period, roses for the most part still had fragrance, vigor, & disease resistance. Color palettes were less muted. Salmon, coral, cerise and flamingo pink enter my mind.
On the opposite spectrum, "The Pinocchios" produced a sedate mish mash of colors.
A mish mash, I adore.
I am expecting a delivery of Gene Boerner's 'Chic',
a 1953 floribunda - seedling of 'Pinocchio' and 'Fashion'
