Very nice! I had this variety in a former garden and have only ever seen it twice since then, in other peoples gardens from afar and in neither case could I take a cutting (now there is no point - no garden!).

However I would like to know it's name. I have been trying to find out since 1986 but have never seen a picture that had exactly the right colour flowers AND leaves. But this is it!

It has to be a ysl!

Best wishes, Andy

The picture was taken in the Rose Garden Park El Retiro (Rosaleda del Parque de El Retiro), in each parterre is the name of roses and his creator (I think). Sorry Andy, I'm pretty sloppy for these things. At no time did I write it down.

Thanks for your kind comment and Like.

I will go and find it. I now know exactly where it is!

If you wrote all these things down you would have no time for anything else, certainly not photography!

Many thanks, F.Campayo

Best wishes, Andy

My pleasure, F, Campayo!

I went to the Roselada and to the Park you mentioned and posted some shots yesterday. I found the name of this rose, so thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction.

All best wishes, Andy

Very nice shot!


Friendly greetings from Greece-Piraeus.
