I must say, the first time I saw this rose in bloom it stopped me in my tracks. That doesn’t happen often. This rose is a powerhouse of beauty and spicy scented goodness. Her blooms are perfectly formed and come in clusters. Her foliage is dark green. A confectionary concoction of apricot, ginger, parchment, cream and buff she never disappoints. What a fitting tribute to a woman, born in 1908 who became a renowned artist, author, journalist, patron and fashionista. She was nuts for roses and was often photographed with one in hand. In 1950 she launched an innovative magazine “Flair”, which featured stories by notables such as Tennessee Williams and Jean Cocteau illustrated by the likes of Picasso, Dali and Lucian Freud. An admirable woman, way ahead of her time she was once quoted saying, “I have an idea a minute. I’m a born idea myself”. Our kind of gal.
