Description
The Girlguiding Centenary Rose is an easy-care rose suitable for all-comers, including rose-gardening beginners.

The colour is rich raspberry pink. The "eye" at the centre of each flower is yellow at first, then turns white. It gives a lovely look, which is accentuated by the silvery reverse to the petals. This striking rose also makes an attractive choice for flower arrangements, where its perfume of musk with fruity overtones is best enjoyed.

The Centenary Rose is ideal for all-purpose planting in beds and borders and if you don't have a garden, it can be planted in a large container or planter to give your balcony a splash of colour!

Description

The Brownie Rose Introduced in 2004

Here is a rose that gives a lively account no matter what. For mass-effect in pure buttercup yellow The Brownie Rose reaches for new horizons, as it does in terms of ease of cultivation. 
Beginners will amaze themselves with the enormous trusses of blooms that just keep on coming. New shoots will be bursting forth and already showing their flower buds even before the previous flush of flowers is finished.
The Brownie Rose will make a fine display as a single plant; but it is at its best when planted in groups, adding joie de vivre to any situation requiring a drift of colour. As a cut stem, it is long-lasting in water, giving good value when cut for indoors.

June 2007

I thought I would pass on an update regarding the Canadian Girl Guide Rose. Unfortunately, White Rose Home and Garden Centres no longer exists. Also unfortunately, as they were the creators and "copyright" holders of the Girl Guide Rose, this plant is no longer available commercially.
