“…but from this distance, the velvety reds, flashing yellows and glassy whites [of the roses] seemed to break up the light of the summer sun into its various elements and cast it back far more brilliantly than any other flower ever could, seemed not exactly of the earth, but of space and air itself.”
This stunning, beautiful rose is part of the Delbard Painters Collection. Bred in France in 1992 and named in honour of Paul Cezanne. Paul Cézanne, was one of the greatest Post Impressionists Painters. He was born on 19th January 1839 in Aix-en-Provence, France and died on 22nd October 1906 in Aix-en-Provence.
This beautiful rose is a Hybrid Tea Shrub with lime green foliage. The colour of the blooms is unique and striking and each one is different which gives the appearance they were actually painted by hand. A sensational warm, soft and dusky palette of pinks and soft yellow with slashes of white and ochre. The overall appearance is vibrant and delightful yet very feminine because as the blooms unfold they appear ruffled with crinkled edges, The scent is moderate with a cinnamon, rose, raspberry and citrus fragrance.
Paul Cezanne™ grows to a free flowering tall rose plant that is hardy and disease resistant. 150cm. I purchased my first Paul Cezanne Rose pictured below from Silkies Rose Farm Clonbinane Victoria and I am waiting to plant this years addition from Wagners . I think to date this is my favourite rose in our garden.
