pretty petals – turtle rose

August 28, 2014

Let me introduce you to a rose that we have recently discovered called “turtle”.  Not the prettiest of names for a rose – in fact, it is somewhat nonsensical if you ask me since there is no such thing as a bright yellow turtle (that I am aware of).  Nevertheless, this outstanding rose has become our “go to” rose when we require a bright yellow rose.  It has a remarkably high petal count and a very long vase life.  But most importantly, its flat, ruffly style mimics that of a garden rose.  With garden roses being so popular right now, turtle provides the look of a garden rose without the heavy price tag.
