Welcome to all my friends sharing the same passion for flowers!
For those who live nearby I could offer some cuttings. Just choose from my list of roses and leave a message. I'll be more than happy to see the population of roses growing. Anything, for a flowery world!
Those who grow roses in their garden grow also roses in their heart. And this world will be better.

Intoxicating Fragranced Roses - Rose de Rescht / Rose de Resht

"Rose de Rescht"
Exact origin unknown. From Rasht (Iran) to Europe via Lindsay, UK, 1940.
It is a wonderful Portland Damask rose that was rediscovered in Persia in 1945 by an English gardener by the name of Nancy Lindsay. It is one of the wonderful mysteries of the Old Garden Rose history.
Being of the Portland group, Rose de Rescht is capable of several flushes of repeat bloom throughout the season in distinct cycles.
It is quite disease resistant, and healthy.
It is a beautiful opening bud, that quickly grows to reflex into a pompon form.

The scent is exceptional in quality; pure sweet Damask with a hint of spices.

This is the rose that is often recommended to people who are contemplating buying their first Heritage Rose, as it is trouble free, well behaved, and very rewarding.
An outstanding rose that is quite easy to grow.

Royal Cultural Society Award of Garden Merit 1993.

Compact, dense bush. It suckers on its own roots. Healthy foliage.
Height of 3' to 4' - 90 to 120 cm. Width of up to 30'' - up to 75 cm.
Very full, over 41 petals bloom form, average diameter of 2.5'' - 6 cm.

One of my favourite roses, small but strong. I make a wonderful jam out of its petals :).


  1. este trandafirul pt dulceata?

  2. Da, este unul dintre trandafirii din care se poate face dulceata... Se mai poate face din Centifolia, Rugosa, Damask, Alba sau practic orice trandafir cu aroma puternica si crescut in conditii bio, nestropit cu chimicale. Din experienta, fiecare tip de trandafir da o dulceata specifica, cu o aroma si culoare caracteristica. Din Rose de Rescht iese o dulceata inchisa la culoare, visinie, cu o aroma puternic condimentata. Nu seamana cu cea din comert. Buna de tot! :)
