The royal wedding was fantastic and so romantic. The danish people love the beautiful crown princess. Those of us who grow roses are just as pleased to enjoy her namesake rose; Kronprinsesse Mary Castle. It is a cream white floribunda rose, with a rosette shaped yellow center, that fades to almost pure white in the sun. It becomes a bushy little shrub rose about 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. It´s parents are: Clair Renaissance and Sun Hit - 2 roses that are very fragrant, healthy and popular for the abundance of fragrant flowers produced from early summer, until winter sets in.
