Colour and perfume. Double Delight. And that is only what stands out if you hurry along past this rose, taking no time to notice all the other qualities that make it an unforgettable rose. By all means, its perfume is divine, and so are its colours. Truly spectacular and refined. Maybe that is why it’s best planted close to your terrace, where you can justly appreciate its delicate fragrance and its superb shades of colour.
The Double Delight is one of the favourite roses of British gardeners as well as of rose-lovers all over the world, especially for its very long-lasting cut-flower bouquets.
Just to give you a proper picture of this rose, here are some of the awards it received in international competitions: the Gold Medal at the Baden-Baden contest in 1976, the Gold Medal in 1976 in Rome, as well as the Fragrance Prize 10 years later. In 1985 it was inducted in the World Rose Hall of Fame.
