Diana, Princess of Wales Rose

Several weeks ago I shared that I had planted another of my favorite rose bushes: Diana, Princess of Wales. I thought you might like to see one of the blossoms. This rose is blooming on my original "Diana" rose bush that is planted by my back door. The soft pink colors that fade into a soft white with a touch of cream for accent create an ideal rose blossom. In addition to the rose plant itself being beautiful and named after a favorite princess, this one is also special to me because it was given to me by Nancy, a dear friend who lives in Orlando, Florida. One year for my birthday she ordered two Jackson & Perkins Diana, Princess of Wales rose bushes. One is planted in her yard and the other in mine. My other name for this rose is simply "Nancy" and I think of her every time I see this rose.


  1. Beautiful! Just like her!

    I also like the idea of you and your friend both having the same rose bush!

  2. Since Nancy and I started the 'twin roses' concept, I've carried this on with other friends as well. In Iowa and in my yard there is the "LaGwen" rose. . .and in my community a friend and I have "LaKay" roses. It's special to have a rose that has it's twin in a friends garden.
