Help ID lavender, florist's rose?

Posted by shelleykj 4 (My Page) on

I bought a beautiful pale lavender florist's rose yesterday, forgot to ask if she knew what variety it might be. Wish I could figure out how to load photos. Anyway, it looks a lot like Angel face, very pale lavender getting a little darker to the edges of the petals. What are some common lavender florist's roses I could compare it to?
Thanks everyone!

Check out Eufloria Flowers and California Pajarosa's sites. Maybe Avant Garde or Blue Bird.

Thanks Diane! Actually I looked on helpmefind, not all 17 pages of the mauve of course, but it's very similar to Blue Moon and SUNdel. I went back to the store and asked and she was pretty sure it wasn't Blue Bird, I think I agree, mine has more rounded petals.

Maybe Blue Curiosa. Rio Roses from Equiflor, select "Lavender" from the right pull-down. It could be "Delilah" (SUNdel) it is still used as a florist rose, and you can see a photo at the Rio site by selecting the name from the left pull-down.
