Roses at the Holbourne Museum, Bath

Holbourne Museum, Bath

At the Holbourne Museum the other day I was struck by this bed of roses. The tight pink buds were almost as attractive as the overblown flowers, and I liked the slightly chaotic look – a contrast to the clipped box surrounding the bed. I’ve no idea what variety this is, and would love to know.

  1. That looks delightful, and even nicer with the benches painted in that lovely shade of blue.

  2. The rose is most likely mutability, a china rose. If you want to know more about this rose, go to helpmefind.com. This has profiles of lots of roses……..use the search function to learn about mutability.

  3. Could it be Rosa mutabilis? N x
