Hayden Foulds. Pick of the Bunch. My overall 1980s pick: This was very, very hard to do. I am tempted to sit oh the fence with this one but will put my head on the block and say 'Sexy Rexy'. Not only a great rose and a good one to breed with but also it created much publicity around the world for the Rose. Will we ever see the same again?

I cannot leave 'Sexy Rexy' out as one of our favourites. It has a light scent and has such a pretty frilly, shell pink bloom with bright green foliage. How could you not like this one, especially if you get a good large stem of it for showing?

Marian and Michael Brown. Favourite Exhibiting Roses.
Large Stem: Sexy Rexy Although a smallish plant, it produces the ideal large stem. Many flowers, well spaced, even and symmetrical. A little late flowering in spring but can produce the perfect large stem. Good for breeding.
