Valentines Day is in full bloom on 28th street - the market shelves are piled high and the floors are covered with buckets and buckets of the most amazing array of red roses. Red is one of my favorite colors and let me ask, “where is red more passionate than in a rose named Red Paris”.
"Flowers are the Romeos and the Juliet’s of Nature."
The trending roses this season are Hearts, Explorer, Red Paris, and Freedom - still the all time favorite red rose of NYC floral designers. With romance in mind, the ruffled edged Heart rose blooms out beautifully large with a texture of velvet, making this rose a sweetheart. My personal favorite is Hearts and I use it throughout the year. The Heart rose always draws oohs and aahs from my students and clients alike. Other rose varieties with a message of love to be on the lookout for include: Forever Young, Devotion, Explorer, Black Pearl and Black Baccara.
With all the exquisite red roses now available in the market for this Valentine’s Day, the message of love is so very sweet.
