Macrantha Daisy Hill Rose


But to drink at the stoup of beauty .  .  .

Like the rose in yesterday's post, there is a single and double version of Macrantha. The double at the top is known as Rosa macrantha 'Daisy Hill'-- the single, shown in two stages of opening, is simply Macrantha.

It's the spread of gold stamens that immediately endeared me to these roses. Note how the cup of pink petals on the single opens white and so beautifully defined-- not to mention its five hearts.
