Is there anything more romantic than a delicate, ruffled, delightfully fragranced garden rose? We here at Cascade Floral Wholesale think not.
You could argue that any rose (every rose) is special, and yet, there’s something a little more rarefied and precious about the ones that belong to the category of “garden.” These beauties have been cultivated since the 14th century as ornamentals, and indeed today they are still lovingly designed by skilled horticulturists and growers. How are they different from the standard rose? They’re larger, with many petals (those ruffles) that create little “hearts” at their center. They are a little less polished then their classic counterparts, offering more of a free-form appeal. The cup of a garden rose is wider, the better to hold their very high petal count.
We’re featuring garden roses because they’re beautiful and worthy of our attention, but also because they are the perfect addition to the bridal floral suite. Perhaps the rose itself should just do the talking:
Behold the Keira Garden Rose, a David Austin signature that practically radiates from a bridal bouquet. This rose’s opalescent appearance brings an ethereal quality to bouquets, wearables, centerpiece designs, or floral accents of any kind at a wedding or reception. If your color palette needs a flower that’s as rosy as the dawn, this is the flower for you. If you’re looking for a more neutral, layered-whites look, we would point you to the Moonstone Garden Rose.
We love the crisp contrast between Moonstone’s fluid creamy petals and the rich green. On their own, garden roses make a beautiful bouquet, but they also look gorgeous alongside equally romantic flowers. Blend them into a gathering that builds color, or keep it in one range only. Imagine bridesmaids bouquets composed solely of the Pink O’Hara Garden Rose, for instance.
Do you need anything else? Whether you call it bubblegum pink, ballet shoe pink, or the absolute perfect pink, the O’Hara’s petals go from outwardly pale to a vibrantly-colored center, giving you a custom look. With its enchanting scent and those enfolded hearts in the center, it doesn’t get more romantic than this flower.
Our garden rose selection is substantial, and we offer each type by 12, 60, and 120 bulk stems. If you’re putting together your spring or summer wedding florals, you’ll definitely want to consider giving this charming flower a starring role.
