International Women’s Day
Tomorrow is International Women’s Day and having just watched the film Suffragette on our way back from Japan where we were sourcing roses, I am now thinking that there should be a rose called Suffragette. Suffragette might be a Floribunda, multi headed and symbolising the ability to do more than one thing at a time – or possibly a Hybrid Tea ,standing strong and beautiful on her own. She will have good resistance to disease and pests (particularly the pests…) and won’t droop in the sun or complain about the cold and wet. She would be a vigorous grower, working well in a group and adapting to most habitats as required. Looking good on any budget, she is a great and empathetic hostess and through nature of her habit commands respect . Suffragette is patient and tolerant of beginners and can hold her own in any situation.
The Real Flower Company’s sumptuous International Women’s Day bouquet is bursting with colour and scent – Peony Pink and Princess roses, clematis, freesias, stocks, tulips and more.
