Throughout the month of June, we are celebrating the Garden Rose. We will be exploring the varieties available on the flower market and how you can incorporate them into different flower arrangements from simple everyday vases to wedding & event designs.

Colour and Shape

Known as the ‘cafe au lait’ of Garden Roses, Keira is a hopeless romantic. A creamy pink marshallow shade with a deeper raspberry ripple effect on the edges. Layers of ruffled petals give it a peony-esque feel, while the luscious vanilla and marizpan fragrance make it a garden rose.

This rose is, amongst many, created by David Austin is particularly popular for weddings and events as a show-stopper focal flower. You can find more varieties here.

Designs combinations

Rose Keira is one of the prettiest of pinks with a modern edge.

  • Combine with pink Garden Rose Miranda, soft pink roses with accents of white bouvardia and foxgloves.
  • Bring in shades of raspberry and plums to contrast the soft, delicate tone like astilbe or hellebores and pair with ranunculus, roses and foliage.
  • Combine with powder blue delphiniums, eryngium grey thistles, white lisianthus and sage green foliage.
