Rose Shimmer is another very pretty, large, greenhouse rose with the hint of the garden rose look and fascinating blend of colours. Its flowers come in a pink-peachy colour with a hint of yellow in the centre. Such colour combination produces glow like effect, almost as if the rose shines with a soft tremulous light. A semi-informal array of ruffled petals and a high rise cup are another top feature of the rose, which makes it look a bit like a garden rose. So if you are on the lookout for show stopper rose in peach colour that would be able to withstand everything that life throws at it, Rose Shimmer is a perfect choice.
A remarkably durable rose with a touch of the garden rose look that is available all year round. Beautiful salmon-peach buds open to high rise cupped rosettes with a lovely slightly ruffled centres. Like any Ecuadorian rose, it comes on a very long, straight, hardy stem and has almost no thorns, which is handy for flower arrangements.
Resemblence of garden roses
Each bloom is tightly packed with orderly petals with the central ones being ruffled. Its big blooms are quite a statement due to their colour mix and slight ruffles on petals. Because of the high petal count, the rose can be a good substitute for garden roses. Though its look is somewhat different with a distinctive cup form and not a dome shape seen in garden roses.
No two roses look alike
Since flowers are a product of Nature so rosette form will vary from one rose to another. Some may have more unorderly centres than others. With roughly half and half having orderly arranged centres and ruffled ones.
Shimmer Rose works beautifully with
Shimmer Rose looks perfect when mixed with pale pinks, light purples, white and cream blooms not to mention toned down greenery. Think of a pastel pallet when designing with this rose. For the romantic look, pair these roses with other luxuriant flowers, such as cream or white garden roses, for example, a ranunculus, with the addition of spiky flowers like white stocks and astilbe accented with dusty miller or other toned down foliage. For a formal look, tightly arrange peachy Shimmer roses with seeded eucalyptus placed around the blooms.
