Sexy Rexy rose
This New Zealand-bred rose has an awful name, though its alternative name of Heckenzauber isn't much better. Sexy Rexy is a creamy pink colour, and flowers for many weeks throughout the summer. I took this photo on 17 October in Dublin, Ireland, and it has many buds left to flower. It is a smaller rose than I'm used to but the reason I bought it is the perfectly formed flower heads. An easy rose to keep and a good choice for a beginner. This rose was bought at Castlerock Garden Centre.

'Queen of Sweden' has charming, wide shallow-cupped flowers that open in softest glowing apricot-pink, later becoming pure soft pink. The flowers are medium-sized and Old Rose in character, with a medium to light myrrh fragrance. Each flower has approximately 140 petals. Its growth is upright but bushy and exceptionally healthy. Its stems are nearly thornless and its blooms are long-lasting when cut from the garden. Grows to 4 ft tall by 2 1/2 ft wide. (David Austin 2004, Austiger).
