The most ubiquitous rose of the year is not orange; it has “creamy tones with a subtle kiss of pink at the edge of each flaring petal.” The name is Garden Party, and it is the All-America Rose of the Year. Garden Party, a hybrid of 'Peace' and 'Charlotte Armstrong', can be seen in almost every rose catalogue but is best presented in that of the firm that bred it -- the Armstrong Nurseries, Ontario, California.

Garden Party Another lovely pastel rose with big creamy flowers edged with pale pink. A bowl of these in "their most perfect phase" is really something, and obviously everybody requires some of these restful colours around them.
