I saw a bed of these at the Queen Mary’s garden in Regent’s Park, London, today. The scent was delicious and very strong (administrators might like to change the description on that point - several others commented here that the scent is strong). The bloom form seemed unremarkable, to me: it was neither a variant of the rounded bloom form of Austin roses, nor high-centred, but an unhappy combination of the two - kind of chalice-shaped with a bull-nose. If space in my garden was not a concern, I would still overlook this and get myself a plant to enjoy the scent.

I'm so happy that I purchased this not so well knowing rose. Caroline Victoria is a very elegant looking flower. It grows a little slower, but that's no big deal for me because the petals stay really long in form. The blooms are really pretty formed, because the center petals don't open fully until the very end, forming a rounded dome. It's also really interesting to see the formation of the blooms. The first peeks of the petals look pale green-yellow. After that the outer petals are beige and the inner petals more or less yellow-peach. When it fully opens there are even some pink peaks on the rims of the inner petals. And for the cherry on the top, the scent of Caroline Victoria really reminds on raspberries like stated in the description.

Caroline Victoria Rose: A Rose for the Arts
FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 2011 AT 2:29 PM
NEW! First time offered in B.C.

The has an impeccable genealogical background, combining the stately grace of the Audrey Hepburn rose with the fragrant, award-winning New Zealand rose. Classic and elegant, the Caroline Victoria is an exceptional hybrid tea rose with blooms of pure ivory shading to amber-blush in a spiral bud formation, and a lingering perfume evocative of citrus and raspberry with subtle overtones of mint. In fact, it is one of the most fragrant modern roses in existence!

Created in 2006 by world-renowned rose breeder Robert Harkness of Harkness Roses, Hertfordshire, England, the Caroline Victoria offers season-long repeat flowering and holds highest ratings for hardiness, disease resistance, and fragrance.

The Caroline Victoria Rose was commissioned as a perpetual commemoration of the life of artist Caroline Victoria Coldicutt, whose deep love for the arts inspired the founding of the Caroline Victoria Coldicutt Arts Foundation (CVCAF), a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting student artists in need. Thirty per cent of the profits from this rose will be dedicated to the Foundation, which brings hope, inspiration, and needed financial support to student artists at educational institutions in the US and Canada.
