Named after Lady Carnarvon, Countess of Carnarvon who calls Highclere Castle home. The Lady Carnarvon Rose is a very rewarding variety.
The gentle adoption of pearl pink and creamy amber into the flowers (the different colours manifest at different stages of the bloom) give a pale coloured flower with enduring interest as the colours gently change through the life of the bloom.
The form and presentation of the blooms are both good, as the blooms do not droop towards the ground, and the flower travels from a plump bud through a tightly rounded quarter to half open flower ending as an open flower showing stamens, that could attract bees. The dark green foliage contrasts nicely with the pastel bloom. The Lady Carnarvon Rose is an easy to grow variety that will be colourful in beds and borders.
