Artist's Description

This rose is part of the fascinating heritage collection of very old roses in the rose garden at The Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, California, USA. The garden sign identified the variety as “Irene Watts” originating in 1896. As I often do, I later looked it up on the internet and found that there’s some disagreement about the variety name, with a number of people claiming that this is actually “Pink Gruss an Aachen.” Regardless of its actual ID, the rose is a dense whirl of pale, silky petals with a hint of fragrance. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/11, 1/1000 sec., ISO 200, morning sun/partly cloudy, handheld)
