Our DNA comes from creation
This is what Rose Dance de Meilland and I came up with. I got this week, motivated by the Meilland rose breeders' heritage.
At the Meilland International stand at the IFTF exposition in the Netherlands in November 2021, I noticed a white rose with "red lips," a very unique shape and color combination. Dance de Meilland Meivhienna is the rose's official name. After obtaining this rose this week, I was moved to make a really fashionable bouquet using the same color scheme and share with you how I grew to like Meilland roses.
I Love Roses From The French Garden
I had no idea about the world I was going to find out about until I fell in love with a nearly black rose named Black Baccara 15 years ago for its beauty. In the future, I will be the first florist in the world to have a garden rose bearing my name: Rose Alina Perfumella. I will also serve as an ambassador for French garden roses.
At this point, Meilland International had all of my interest and attention. I quickly realized that I had always enjoyed their goods without being aware that the roses I treasured were grown in one of the world's most breathtaking locales—the French Côte d'Azur.
History Has Been Written by Meilland
In my opinion, Meilland International has already contributed to the history of rose breeders. Before World War I, gardener Joseph Rambaux, who began producing roses in Lyon, France, in 1850, was his family's first rose breeder. Once the 'Peace' rose was debuted after World War II, it garnered the family significant global interest and financial success. These people have been breeding roses for 172 years; they are experts!
The Meilland family is still producing gorgeous, robust, resistant to disease roses today, making them accessible to gardeners and farms who produce roses for the cut flower market.
During the Meilland International stand at the IFTF exposition in the Netherlands in November 2021, I noticed a white rose with "red lips," a very unique shape and color combination. Dance de Meilland Meivhienna is the name of the cut rose variety, which has 40 to 45 petals, a stem length of 70 to 90 cm, and an excellent vase life of around 15 days.
Rose Dance de Meilland in a Trendy Bouquet
This week, after receiving Dance de Meilland roses, I was moved to make a really fashionable arrangement using the same color scheme. I put together a delightful bouquet that would impress the recipient with ranunculus, phalaenopsis orchid, cherry flowers, and exquisitely preserved fern.
I'll end this piece with a stirring quotation from Anne Bront in the hopes that it may motivate you: But one should never desire the rose if they are afraid to grab the thorn.
Yours, Superflower Blondie!
