A Whiter Shade of Pale rose

A Whiter Shade of Pale rose is white with yes, you guessed it, the merest touch of pale pink to its petals. It is just a perfect rose with its immaculate hybrid tea high centre and perfect petals in this faintest of pink colour. Where it stands out is that unlike some hybrid tea roses, A Whiter Shade of Pale has a strong and alluring fragrance. In addition the foliage is a good green with a glossy rounded leaf. RHS AGM. A fabulous addition to our range of hybrid tea roses for sale.

Pale and interesting

No one can resist that romantic, English rose look that characterises some of our greatest gardens and the incomparable Whiter Shade of Pale has that look in spades. Not a large shrub, its flowers are very striking in spite of their pale colour and so can be used as a focal point in a bed of darker flowers - try crimson peonies or Hidcote Lavender. Again it would look stunning with climbers like Lincoln Star clematis or New Dawn rose and set against the Antwerp green of a yew hedge. Having found a hybrid tea rose with a good scent you may as well put it to good use and plant Whiter Shade of Pale in a sheltered corner where the smell can reverberate around or next to terrace where you eat outside.

Nothing to do with Procul Harum!

This rose was bred by Colin Pocock in 2006 at Pocock Nurseries. If you think how many other pale pink roses are out there, the fact that A Whiter Shade of Pale is still so prevalent in the market demonstrates how special it is.
