Every woman should own a string of pearls, don't you agree? (If you're a woman, you'll probably say yes, if you're a man, maybe not!) Pearls are classic and will never go out of style. Simple and beautiful, they dress up any outfit from a simple black dress to an outfit with blue jeans.
Today I'm going to introduce you to a rose that is like a string of pearls. Simple and beautiful. It could fit in almost anywhere.
This is Perle d'Or rose (translated it means Gold Pearl). It's small peachy-pink blooms are like tiny little pearls, glistening in the sunlight. So sweet, so petite, so delicate.
But the rose is not. Designated an Earthkind rose, this rose is tough, drought tolerant, tolerant of many types of soils, disease resistant, and grows in zones 6 through 9.
Mine has gotten quite large (over 5 ft.), but this rose could easily be kept around 3 ft tall. It would look wonderful grown in a container as a patio rose where you could see the details of its bloom. Not yet convinced? This rose is almost thornless, and fragrant. I listed it as one of the top 5 old garden roses in my garden.
Classic, simple, beautiful. Just like a string of pearls.
