A musky rose! I'm very curious to smell this one, the 'William And Catherine' Musk Rose that was displayed yesterday at the Chelsea Flower Show in London. I wonder if it's fragrant enough for perfume-making; does anyone know?
William and Kate weren't the only ones honored with a namesake flower. There was a bittersweet moment when Vanessa Redgrave was presented with a rose named in the memory of her daughter, the Natasha Richardson Rose. Then came Dame Helen Mirren for the launch of a new carnivorous flower, a cultivar nepenthes named 'Helen' . I don't know what this one smells like, but I'm thinking fierce.
