Even by any other name we promise these blooms would smell as sweet. But when it comes choosing roses for your bouquet, centerpieces and wedding decor, a knowledge of your options will help. Take a look through these arrangements so you can greet your florist with a list flower names and ideas for using them.
This 30-blossom bouquet is made from four types of peach roses and studded with eight blush-tipped tuberoses. The stems are bound and then tied with a peach velvet ribbon for an end-of-spring bouquet that is elegant and fragrant.
Striped 'Abracadabra' and 'Hocus Pocus' roses make an arresting foundation for this bouquet. Their yellow and aubergine shades are mirrored by an assortment of butter-hued roses, bright yellow marigolds, deep burgundy ranunculus, and orange-colored rose hips. A vintage ribbon in a sparkling golden-yellow hue completes the arrangement.
A bouquet that combines roses with seasonal blooms and greenery will have a fresh-from-the-garden feel. Here, these late-summer purple clematis, pale hibiscus, and fuchsia-speckled caladium leaves surround luxurious Dutch and garden roses. One vintage silk ribbon overlays another to form a billowy bow.
