Queen of Sweden Roses

We've had a difficult year with our roses as they have been plagued by aphids and suffered from water logging over the winter which was not good! They are perking up now, but one rose which has definitely been our star performer is the beautiful David Austin blush pink variety Queen of Sweden.

Despite its delicate appearance it seems to be really robust and has been flowering non-stop since June. It has a good vase life, lovely strong stems and is fantastic for weddings. We love it! It starts out almost coral / apricot before fading to a wonderful pale pink which is simply beautiful. It looks wonderful with just some foliage in a bridal bouquet or combined with other flowers for tables etc.
