These Picturesque Roses Bloom With Both Red and White Petals

Roses, being a symbolic representation of romance, have extensive holdings in innumerable lyrics of both modern and contemporary literature. Their evolutionary journey began around 35 million years ago, and since then, over 150 species of these masterful genetic adaptors have emerged over time. Currently, the number of rose varieties is increasing exponentially as brilliant horticulturalists are creating new hybrids. One such remarkable variety with a top-notch two-color swirl has recently become an internet sensation.

This variety, known as the Osiria rose, was created by a breeder named Reimer Kordes in 1978 using plant stems from Germany. It first became popular a few years back when a few photographs of this brilliant variety started circulating online. As more people became mesmerized by its enchanting beauty, a trend arose to search for the Osiria rose. Much to the disappointment of those people, several sources reportedly said that those photographs look somewhat different from the actual rose.

The heavily photoshopped-looking photos have a perfect white center and velvet-red petals. Comparatively, the actual Osiria rose typically has a more fire-engine red and a slightly discolored white.

Just as fragrant and perfect looking the Osiria is, it is also extremely challenging to come across one in your garden or anywhere else. Even the seeds sold online contain a bunch of unhappy comments from reviewers who tested the product.

Despite the odds, you should give the Osiria a chance if you have a knack for making plants grow well. If you ever plan to do so, you’ll have to be much vigilant as the plant is terribly vulnerable to pests and diseases. However, if your plant successfully makes it through all that, the reward would be exquisite. And in a positive light, the handsome blossoms get stronger as the plant ages, just like fine wine.

If the Osiria rose seems challenging, you can try your luck with other varieties with similar colorations. The Nostalgie rose and the Gemini rose also have similar dual white and red coloration and they are much easier to grow and minister to.
