Bloom of the Day

Jarins de Bagatelle

This wonderfully feminine Hybrid Tea with blooms in the palest cream flushed with delicate pink and yellow has the sweetest fragrance. The Palace of Bagatelle in Paris, built by the Comte d'Artois, owes its inspiration to Queen Marie Antoinette. It is in its beautiful gardens that the famous competition for new roses is held each year.
