Interesting Notes

- Rose lovers everywhere are shocked, shocked I tell you! The normally staid and decorous David Austen must be undergoing a midlife crisis: he has actually introduced a brilliant, vibrant, radiant, intensely orange-red-salmon-pink rose. "This rose is of a colour not usually associated with English Roses," the brochure says primly in the wry British understatement of the century. In fact, this rose is simply dazzling. I'm always looking for bright splashes of sizzling color to complement my pastels and plywood, and this compact 3-foot bush is perfect for a front of the border star of the show. Imagine it blooming next to 'Tamora' and 'Crown Princess Margareta,' against a backdrop of tar paper and duct tape! The scent is described as a "pleasing tea fragrance with a hint of lemon." Available in the US for the first time in 2006, 'Christopher Marlowe' is aptly named for the brilliant, colorful, and groundbreaking Elizabethan playwright and poet.
