Comments
Sam McGredy of New Zealand likes to shock with something new. Hand-painted roses, striped Hybrid Teas, and now a magenta brown. This grand master of rose breeding crossed 'Harmonie' with 'Big Purple' and achieved the unusual.  Sam's own description is as follows: 'Spiced Coffee' is an arranger's dream - the flowers are a pale amber, flushed with lavender pink, opening to pale beige, and overlaid with lavender. It also has extensive, alluring fragrance. The tall-growing plants are easy to grow.

Hi Joyce
I don't have a photo at present, but if you go to the website http://ludwigsroses.co.za/ and search for Spiced Coffee there is a picture. It is a most unusual colour, what I like to term "antique" (don't ask me why...) and in real life a rose worth having 10x over!

Next time I go there I am taking my camera, but I first need to plan my rose garden...and the herb garden and the veggie garden and... well the rest! I have a very large garden of almost nothing to design and fill. :party:
