Princess Hitomi®

(Beautiful History)


Exclusively Grown by Alexandra Farms

A medium to large rose with a seductive but not overpowering fragrance of lavender, Princess Hitomi (Beautiful History) is remarkable for her pure color, a cotton-candy pink. Because the tone of her hue is so even, it brings to the fore delicious contrasts in the form of her petals: her inner petals are rolled into four hearts, while her outer petals curl under into a layered array of starry points. This Japanese rose blends baby-girl innocence and sophisticated style.
