Have you met the Duchesse yet?

Hello and Welcome to Tuesday's Treasures.

Have you had the chance to meet a real life Duchesse? I have she is so pretty in pink.


Duchesse de Brabant

 Duchesse de Brabant was first grown in 1857. She has small clusters of cupped, soft to rose-pink double blooms. Long flower buds. She has a sweet tea rose fragrance and free flowering. A excellent climber growing to 3 metres.


The bees have been visiting the Duchesse too.

Today our Treasure Lucy is travelling back to New Zealand so a trip to the airport this afternoon.

Check out the other Treasures being shown this week at Melody's blog.

Happy days.

What a beautiful rose. I love climbing roses. The Duchess is such a lovely colour. I have always wanted a plant called a banksia rose I think. I saw it a long time ago. It had open flowers in a lovely shade of yellow.
