SWEETNESS “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” We are starting a “Rose of the week post.” Each rose is grown from its individual grower/farm somewhere in the world. Roses are grown in California, Equador and many more countrys and states. Each has its own unique name, style and smell. This rose, for instance is called “Sweetness.” It is conisdered a white-ish rose with a hot pink edge. The edge isnt consistant from one rose to the next, but I think that is what makes it unique. It isnt a large head rose; it has around 25 petals per stem. That is a standard size rose in the floral industry. It has a very sweet (no pun intended) smell, but its not overwhelming. This color is perfect for the bride that wants just a hint of her color in her bouquet, using the hot pink as an accent, of course
We are so honored have worked with Randy Fenoli from “Say Yes To The Dress” last Saturday at Bridal and Formal in Cincinnati, Ohio.
