Terra Nostra- The Brown Rose

August 29, 2007

There is a new rose called Terra Nostra being developed by the French grower NIRP.

It is a wonderful color but I think it needs to be more of an accent rather than a main player in a bridal bouquet. Imagine this rose paired with flowers in dusty pink and champagne hues. Romantic! Or how about the milk chocolate colored rose pair with deep purple and burgundy? Mysterious and sexy!

I think this rose has definite possibilities. I am looking forward to working with this beauty in the future. It may be a while though, it can take a long time to bring a rose from the development stages to the flower markets.

Still “craving” chocolate colored flowers for your bridal flowers? Try these gorgeous choices: chocolate cosmos, magnolia leaves, fiddle head fern fronds, fountain grass, chocolate sunflowers and scabiosa (annual).
