Honey Dijon


I love roses and this year we have been lucky enough to get some good rose weather.  I bought a new plant two years ago, Honey Dijon, and this year is the first year we have actually seen some blooms.  Last year the buds were eaten either by rosellas or possums. This year I managed to get a photo of a bloom before it was destroyed by the rosellas.

It is a coffee coloured rose and I am thrilled with it.

This is the description for the rose:

Bush Rose, Honey Dijon

Bush Rose, Honey Dijon,   Warm golden brown is a most uncommon colour in roses. This novel colouring develops deeper shades in cooler climates and will appeal with a pleasant fruity fragrance. An abundant production of formal, double blooms that will bring a vigorous presence to the garden. If you like Julia’s Rose, you will love Honey Dijon..

      It really is a gorgeous colour but I found it difficult to replicate on my phone camera.
