Artist's Description

When two beauties meet like this, it’s a chance encounter between the striking and exquisite antique and the sweet, young thing. ‘Rosa Mundi’ (Rosa gallica versicolor), the fragrant beauty at center, is considered of great antiquity as well as the world’s oldest and best-known striped rose. Legends swirl around it and a favorite has it named for Fair Rosamund, mistress of Henry II. Now, ‘Sweet Juliet’, with its pastel grace, came into the world centuries later in 1989. it’s the English rose creation of David Austin and named to honor Juliet, beloved daughter of Shakespeare’s Capulet family and, of course, the beloved of Romeo. Other beautiful old roses in supporting roles here are Moss rose ‘Henri Martin’ and Damask rose ‘Celsiana’.
