When I bought my house 16 years ago, it came with some gorgeous roses in pastel shades - cream, peach, pink, light yellow, lavender, etc and the flowers were HUGE!
I remodeled / expanded the house and all the roses were removed when the fruit trees came I do not have any pictures of the roses. After searching online, I think these were hybrid tea roses like Just Joey, Brandy, Crescendo, etc They had only 1 flower per stem.
Now I have a few David Austin roses and I enjoy them but my husband keeps saying the previous roses we had were stunning and these David Austin roses don’t look great. I have to agree with him but I think there is something classy about the David Austin roses. For wedding roses and closeup pics and fragrance nothing can beat David Austin roses but for landscape uses may be bigger is better (has more impact?)…
What do you think? I am going to be getting new roses. Can I please get some inputs from the rose experts here on what varieties to get so I can have these huge pastel shade roses again? I am in zone 9B and pretty much all roses do well here.
Here are some pics of my current David Austin roses -
