Princess Alexandra of Kent Rose







We are very honoured to name this rose for Princess Alexandra, who is a cousin to Queen Elizabeth II. She is a keen gardener and great lover of roses. The rose that bears her name has unusually large flowers of a warm, glowing pink. They are full-petalled and deeply cupped in shape, all enclosed in a ring of outer petals of a softer pink; creating a most pleasing effect. In spite of their size, they are never clumsy; being held nicely poised on a well-rounded shrub. Because of their size, there is a lot to be said for planting in groups of three, keeping both flowers and growth nicely balanced. They have a delicious fresh Tea fragrance which, interestingly, changes completely to lemon as the flower ages – eventually taking on additional hints of blackcurrants. It is very healthy. 3.5 x 3ft.

Swexxy also has a rose named after her.



I love Marie's tulips - they are beautiful.   I love tulips much more than roses.

I go through fits and starts, but my pride and joy is my 'Queen Elizabeth' standard rose:






It's older than me and a bit leggy and gnarled when I first started working on it, but with hacking and feeding it's turned into a gorgeous and healthy specimen which as we speak is about 6 feet tall and has 14 large pink buds on it.

I also have a 'Whisky Mac', 'Pretty Polly' and a 'Carefree Days'.

Top tip? once or twice a year, leave a banana peel down at the base of the main stem. Rain will wash the potassium and other nutrients down to the root ball and you get better blooms.

On Paleis Het Loo in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands there have been a photo-exhibition about flowers named after (Dutch) royals. If I am correct about 35 pictures. They are also collected in a book entitled Royal Flowers of the Netherlands:
