2. David Austin Wedding Rose ‘Keira’
The Stunning David Austin Wedding Rose Keira has natural charm and glorious, vintage-style blooms. This unusual rose breaks all the normal rules for the cut flower industry, because each rose is subtly different in color, being a beautiful blend of blush pink and cream, often with warm peachy highlights. Some blooms have an irregular flush of pink that highlights the edge of the outer petals, creating a very soft picotee effect. We think that this variation adds to the natural charm of the rose.
The flowers of the David Austin Wedding Rose Keira are beautiful at all stages: the small, plump buds opening into glorious, rounded young blooms that eventually form spectacular cupped rosettes, each with around 100 petals. The edges of the outer petals have an attractive, lightly waved effect. There is a medium-strong rose fragrance.
This David Austin Wedding Rose Keira, perhaps more than any other, looks like it has been freshly cut from the garden. This makes it particularly effective when combined with seasonal flowers, herbs and foliage for a romantic, garden-inspired look.
The name ‘Keira’ is a charming variation on the ancient Gaelic ‘Ciara’.
2. David Austin Wedding Rose ‘Juliet’
The David Austin Wedding Rose Juliet was the first of David Austin’s Cut Roses to be released and is sometimes known as the ‘£3 million rose’. After over fifteen years of intensive breeding, Juliet combines the beautiful cupped rosette form of old roses with a very contemporary color.
The unusual and sophisticated color of the David Austin Wedding Rose Juliet was not found in roses of the past and is hard to find among modern roses. Pale peach buds open to reveal deeper inner tones neatly arranged within the heart of the bloom. Beautifully cupped rosettes are held elegantly upright on strong stems. Juliet deserves its place as our most popular variety. A light fragrance reminiscent of snowdrop and daffodil.The David Austin Wedding Rose Juliet has the lightest fragrance of our cut roses.
