Carol, the blossoms are not so big but have many petals, in the specification it is written 60 petals. I cannot smell it so much, maybe I can say it is mildly fragrant. But I like that it has many buds and soon it will be covered with blooms and I planted it only in February...

Oh my, that looks good enough to eat! So lovely! Is this a Kordes rose? I thought I read that it was.

Angelcub, no, it is not the Kordes rose, it is a rose with the same name from Interplant, Netherlands. That is what is written on the label.

This is a new rose for me and I begin to like it and its lavender pink color. Here are some more pictures of it.

That's a beautiful rose and a wonderful color. I like your 3rd pic down from the top of it sandwiched between the two buds.

Ah, thanks, bgrose. I didn't know there were two with the same name. Beautiful pics!

So pretty. I grew Blue Ribbon once (a gift from someone who thought there really was such a thing as a blue rose). Of course it wasn't blue and certainly not as lovely as yours.
