Painting the beautiful blonde and shapely Marilyn Monroe Rose (above) got me thinking about other roses named after actressess and I found that there were many.  Let me tell you about some of them.

Elizabeth Taylor is a shocking pink hybrid tea, Ingrid Bergman is a classic red rose, Audrey Hepburn is remembered with a light pink hybrid tea, Judy Garland is a flamboyant scarlet, orange & yellow floribunda, Ginger Rogers is an orange pink hybrid tea, Charlotte Rampling a medium red hybrid tea and Grace Kelly is a cream hybrid tea rose with pink edges. And if you find yourself in Monaco you can visit the Princess Grace Memorial Rose Garden which is described as “an oasis of calm and serenity where the scent of some 4,000 roses perfumes the air”.
