Petal by Petal: 'Juliet' Garden Rose

They say 'A rose is a rose is a rose', but I say a rose is more than a rose when it comes to the garden variety.  I discovered 'Juliet' a David Austin rose in the flower district around the holidays when I was supposed to be looking for swags of garland and vibrant red berries.  Instead I stumbled across this incredibly fragrant blossom with the prettiest hint of peach that I just couldn't resist.  These blooms are great when arranged by themselves or alongside other blooms.   They are one of my favorite David Austin roses that I have come across because of their gorgeous thick layer of petals that form a beautiful rosette and give way to a slightly sweet aroma.  Continue for more...
