Green Tea
Vase Life: 15+ Days, very long lasting rose
Bunch Size: 25 stems
Origin: South America, GreenRose by Productnorte
Details:
The palest green of the group, on the white to green spectrum. Very large head on this rose and will take up a nice amount of room in an arrangement. While in the pictures it looks to be the same size as the Lemonade Rose, I would say that Green Tea is a smidgen smaller and the stem is more flexible. How it looked on the day I unwrapped it is pretty much how it looked after 15 days in a vase on my desk – the bloom didn’t open anymore. This rose would be good for bridal bouquets as they fall into place nicely next to each other.

Lemonade
Vase Life: 12-14 Days
Bunch Size: 25 stems
Origin: South America, GreenRose by Productnorte
Details:
A HUGE rose head on this one! So big that of the 25 stems 3 of the roses snapped due to the pressure of the heads in the wrap.
This rose is so big that the 22 stems barely fit into one vase, they probably only fit because those 3 stems had snapped and couldn’t be used!
The palest of the 4 green roses, very ruffly petals. A great space using rose, good for centerpiece work! A bit too bulky and not flexible for bouquet work.

Super Green
Vase Life: 12-14 Days
Bunch Size: 25 stems
Origin: South America, Welflor.com
Details:
Very tight, compact blooms and the richest dark green color of the bunch. The stems are very, very thorny and take extra time to clean- keep this in mind for processing. Some of the outer petals have tips of red.
A rather small head, the smallest of the four. Personally it’ll remain my favorite green rose due to its dark, solid green coloring.

Wimbeldon
Vase Life: 12-14 Days
Bunch Size: 25 stems
Origin: South America, GreenRose by Productnorte
Details:
Very strong stems with a few thorns on the stems – easy to process. Many of the outer petals have red lines and these petals have a nice ruffle to them. These roses fall on the yellow-green spectrum. (this one should be the one called Lemonade – due to its coloring!, but that’s just my opinion). As with all the green roses, they just don’t seem to change much from day 1, no real blowing open of the bloom.

Details about all the roses in this study:
-The Roses were never placed in the cooler once I received them!
-The Roses were set out in the house for the course of the rose study.
-I did not use quick dip, flower food or crowning glory, or any other “helpers”. Just freshly cut stems placed in clear water.
-Even without the use of “helpers” all of these roses lasted over 2 weeks.
-None of these 4 varieties changed much in shape over the course of two weeks, pretty much what you see when you buy it is what you get!

  1. I’m with you on the Super Green! So helpful to see them all together in the first photo. The green rose is not always as green as we hope!

  2. LOVE these colour studies. Any chance we could see one of yellows?
