The Striped Rose

In the past I haven't had much luck with mail ordered plants but my love for striped roses was too strong to overcome and I couldn't find any local so I decided to give it a shot.

Most offerings were red and white, leaning to burgundy and cream (not my bag) so when I came across a pink and white variety called Rosa Mundi from David Austin Roses I decided to go for it.

It doesn't look like much now, a twig basically, but I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. I've lots of David Austin roses in my garden here in the UK and they have always been great, really productive and healthy. I love David Austin roses, though they are pricey I think in this case you get what you pay for.

    1. Hopefully it made it across the pond ok. ;-)
