Honey Dijon Rose

If you ask me, corsages should make a comeback! Doesn't this sweep of roses (still on the plant!) look just like a giant corsage from the Lawrence Welk days?

What could be prettier at the neckline of a sweater than a cluster of unusual roses?

This beauty is called "Honey Dijon" and it is one of my favorite flowers to make arrangements with in the late Summer/early Fall. It looks gorgeous paired with beeswax candles and woven placemats.

Plus, it reminds of when I drove through France and stopped in the town of Dijon! We were to only customers in the little Maille mustard shop.

Hi Anne, Love your blog... so glad I found you.

Can you please tell me where I can find a grower for the "Honey Dijon" Rose. Also, do you grow this rose and in which zone?

Thank you,

Welcome, Gina! The "Honey Dijon" rose is propagated by a company called "Weeks." I would call garden centers near you and ask if they carry "Weeks Roses." Then tell them you are interested in "Honey Dijon." What do you mean, "Do I grow this rose?" Those beauties are mine!!! and I took that photo as they bloomed in my rose garden! I know, they look so great it seems like a promotional photo from them. That is why I love being a photographer - everyday moments can be magical. And I live in Zone 5. :-) Thanks for writing, Anne
