INTRODUCTION | THE RIGHT ROSES
At The Right Roses, we support two important causes:
- ‘The Best Rose Experience’.
- ‘Together We Protect This Planet’.
The team at The Right Roses firmly believe that, with the support from all members, collectively we can make a big difference. Moreover, sharing your own experience and stories will be such an important way to enrich the resources for rose-lovers all over the world, including YOU.
This time, we would like to share with you a story from Fabio Pozza, a passionate gardener from the country, which has contributed so much to the world in so many things. The moment we wake up in the morning, probably many of us have a cup of Italian coffee, brewed in the Italian style. Later we may head to an Italian restaurant to enjoy our favourite pizza Napoli (with anchovies!). Just a couple of examples. We hope that his story can be a source of inspiration to many gardeners. We highly appreciate his contributions.
We look forward to many other stories around the world. Please send your rose experience to RightRosesCom@gmail.com.
And, do not forget to read our review of rose ‘Evelyn’.

A marvellous rose, still unmatched, the indefinite color yellow, apricot, peach and pink, that changes according to the season. The petals appear gracefully translucent towards the outer edges of each bloom creating an illuminated effect.
Very intense fruity perfume in harmony with the color.
I believe that the single flower it is the most beautiful rose of David Austin ever created to date, to the point that the other obvious defect in development and health can be forgiven.
It is a regret that it will no longer be marketed.
