Princess Alexandra of Kent and Lady Elsie May roses

vickysgardenMarch 7, 2012

Hello, I have a very healthy, very vigorous Lady Elsie May rose that doesn't go with much in my garden! Does anyone know if Princess Alexandra of Kent David Austin rose would look good next to it? The colors in the pictures I've seen seem to be similar....that coral, slightly orangey pink.

While we're on the subject of colors, do you think Munstead Wood DA rose would go well alongside a light pink...say, St. Swithun? It is so beautiful in the pictures, but it seems like it, too, may be hard to place in the garden.

Funny you should ask, I'm about two days away from my first spring flush of my new PAK and Munstead Wood roses. I will try to report back my observations.

It's a medium warm pink. The under side of the petals is darker than the top. Here it is with Souvenir de la Malmaison.

Thanks so much for taking the time to post these beautiful photos!! I think I will place Munstead Wood next to St. Swithun, a light pink, rather than the medium pink Princess Alexandra. Photos do help, as a picture is worth a thousand words. Thanks much!

Thanks for showing us Princess Alexandra of Kent. I've had my eye on her since she first made her debut. Keep us posted on her progress throught the season (like disease-resistance)--OK? Thanks.
