  • Description

    Princess Alexandra of Kent' has unusually large flowers of a warm, glowing pink. They are full-petalled and deeply cupped in shape; the ring of soft pink outer petals enclosing the warm pink inner petals, creating a most pleasing effect. In spite of their size, the flowers are never clumsy and are held nicely poised above the foliage. They have a delicious fresh tea fragrance which, interestingly, changes completely to lemon as the flowers age - eventually taking on additional hints of blackcurrants. Very healthy.ᅠ.
