The colour of this intriguing rose is transformed as the bloom ages. David Austin Wedding Rose Darcey™ is bright magenta in the bud, opening to rich raspberry red colour, then finally developing velvety purple tones as the bloom ages.
The flowers of the David Austin Wedding Rose Darcey™ are in the form of incurved cups at first, opening out to perfect rosettes with many perfectly arranged petals. When fully open, a beautiful cluster of golden stamens can be seen in the heart of the rose.
The attractive matt green foliage is very characteristic of old roses.
There is a very light fruity tea scent to be discovered in the David Austin Wedding Rose Darcey.
Darcey dries beautifully if the flowers are hung upside down to air in a dark, dry place before the blooms have fully opened. Leave for about two or three weeks until they are completely dried. The dried roses will be a sensational dark purple colour.
Darcey has a long vase life of at least seven days.
