A blowsy red rose with a heavenly scent, a light pink rose that is a bit of a reluctant bloomer and a yellowy coloured rose with peach tips (which I threaten to cut down and remove every year but then feel sorry for it and allow it another year's grace).
Anyway, this offer seemed too good to refuse so with a few clicks I had committed myself. The delivery arrived a few days later and the mystery rose was revealed to be Harlow Carr (pictured above). To say I was pleased is a bit of an understatement; I never though that a bag of twigs (that is what a bare root rose resembles) could reduce me to sweaty palms! I really hope it blooms this year - I obviously I will have to get some more lavender plants as well as it really is a beautiful combination.
