There’s something about roses with many petals. For many, these romantic, soulful plants are the archetypal roses, especially if they happen to be pink and to have a good fragrance.
Some of these do and some don’t. What interests me about them is their flower forms, the patterns the petals take, and the way the blooms cluster together. The odd one you may recognise. While they are old-fashioned in style, in the main they are English Roses, bred over the last 50 years or so by David Austin.
Among these, rather surprisingly, is one of the most popular pictures I have taken, or so it would seem as I often get emails about it. Feel free to guess which one.

I never remember the different names of these mainly David Austin gems – well photographed
I once had flash cards to learn them. Now I need the same for trees.
OMG, these are so beautiful and I am thinking of the fragrance.
They are very evocative, aren’t they?
I definitely fall for William Morris.Pink roses though seems to be so delicate, but then always fragrant.I am already dreaming of walking once again in the Rose garden nearby to where I live.
It is my favourite picture too here. Though the plant is not always the easiest to grow, when grown well, the flowers are lovely.
Really beautiful – sadly I cant seem to grow roses so I enjoyed yours
Virtual roses are never temperamental 🙂
This is true but can enjoy cut flowers. And in other gardens
The more petals, the more romantic! Gorgeous photos!
I’m glad you like them.
