Nancy Regan Hybrid Tea Rose

Hybrid Tea Rose ‘Nancy Regan’
Synonyms: JACurnam

While there isn’t usually a desire to post a specific flower on this blog today I did want to post a couple of roses. Both were shot at the big Botanical Garden in Orlando. My visit was on a spectacular day and the rose garden sure added to that. I was struck by the complex blend of color shades on this rose. The flowers were not large but had a pleasant scent.

Since it is Sunday here is a bonus snapshot of another hybrid tea rose. The flowers again had a beautiful blend and this particular rose was emerging at a funny angle.

Hybrid Tea Rose ‘Princesse de Monaco’
Synonyms: MEImagarmic, Grace Kelly, Princess Grace, Preference

It seems to have a lot of synonyms but has been around since the early 1980’s. A sweet smelling rose that grows on a short compact bush. It also has nicely shaped buds.
