INTRODUCING THREE NEW ROSES!

Share

David Austin Wedding Roses has been busy behind the scenes, developing exciting new rose
varieties to add to their collection of world-renowned cut roses. Only the most outstanding roses
receive the final David Austin hallmark. And these three new beauties are making heads turn with their elegance, grace, and undeniable charm.

We introduce to you: Bessie (Ausperidot), Hettie (AUSCP17117) and Millicent (AUSCP17431).

So far, only a handful of florists from around the world have worked with these new varieties – but
now it’s your opportunity to do so too – which is great timing for the wedding season ahead! What
we love about these three new varieties is that each one is unique and completely different in
character. We are sure you will love them as much as we do, and we can’t wait to see these roses
gracing the most incredible weddings and events

BESSIE ™ (Ausperidot)

Bessie is the perfect rose for that classic bride. Bessie’s most notable trait is her colour. Starting as
an ivory bud, she transitions quickly into a classic deep cup to reveal shades of warm apricot at her
centre. As her petals bloom, Bessie’s shape becomes more rosette-like, her colour fading to clotted
cream with hints of caramel. Her fragrance is that of delicate tea with undertones of myrrh. Bessie’s
soft appearance and light warm scent give her a sweet, gentle character that is both beautiful and
demure.

HETTIE ™ (AUSCP17117)

Hettie is super sassy, full of charisma and confidence, and not afraid to show it! She pops open
quickly to reveal a striking rich pink star rosette, surrounded by a ring of neat, layered outer petals in
a lighter pink fuchsia tone. She also has the most incredible vase life.
She is perfect for bold and colourful weddings which we know are still very much on trend for 2024.
Far from overpowering, Hettie has the ability to complement paler shades, rich greenery and
delicate flowers too. Her luminosity brings a sense of luxury and sophistication to bridal bouquets,
wedding ceremony displays and reception décor.

MILLICENT ™ (AUSCP17431)

Millicent is a cornucopia of wonderful things. A vintage beauty of warm, mid pinks developing hints
of lilac and mauve. Her blousy blooms are filled with textured, swirling petals that unfurl forming a
wonderful rosette. Millicent’s medium scent of citrus and old rose provides her final flourish and her
adorable character suggests a vintage, reserved glamour of a bygone era.
A great colour for pink themed weddings, Millicent works harmoniously with understated delicate
flowers. Her sophisticated mid pink tones complement an array of colours blending well with pretty
pinks, blues and lilacs as well as a bolder choice of hot pinks, damson and red tones.

We’re so excited to see what you’ll create with these gorgeous blooms! Please remember to tag us on Instagram.
