Hybrid Tea Rose

Hybrid Tea Rose
Rosa 'Abbaye de Cluny'

This rose was blooming at the nursery. It is a large wholesale/retail grower of annuals but they have a few roses. The weather yesterday was as it has been, crummy. This flower caught my eye and was literally glowing even in the low light of a drizzly morning.

These pictures are different then 99% of the photos on digital flower because I used the flash. Normally if there is anything that can be done not to use the flash I will try it that way first.

There were a lot of nice flowers for sale and we got the 18 dozen salmon pink Impatiens, petunias and verbena and a bunch of other stuff. The Impatiens are for a big necklace around a Rhododendron hedge. The nursery was growing like 12 varieties (maybe more) of the Fiesta series of Double Impatiens; we got ‘Ole Salmon’. There are still a lot of plants to be procured and there are a couple more nurseries I want to go to.

About 'Abbaye de Cluny' hybrid tea rose. The colors are fantastic and the flowers are pretty huge. Meilland roses bred it in 1993.
