Roses

Are there roses with more than 200 petals? Thanks!

Here’s a short article about petal count and blossom shape in roses. The author mentions “very full” roses with 41+ petal count.

Is the specific number important?

This one is one of the fullest I’ve seen:

Yes petal count is important. David Austin has claimed he has bred roses that have 200 petals. I am looking for more.

My bad, sorry for wasting your time

Here you go: David Austin “Spirit Of Freedom”.

I own this one! Fragrance like no other!


#9

My Eden rose (aka Pierre de Ronsard) is rated at least +50. Fragrance is subdued but for looks it’s a bombshell!

Pierre de Ronsard (the “Eden” rose) is back at it again!

Here it is today.

Kind of a droopy crawler. I need to trellis it better. This is one pretty rose.
