If you’ve set your heart on a red rose, look no further than Tess. Tess is sumptuous, velvety and regal with a quiet elegance. Her perfectly formed rosettes open to reveal a small cluster of golden stamens. Whilst Tess’s scent is very light her overall beauty is undiminished.

to Bloom

From Bud to Bloom

Tess is shy in her reveal. Over a few days, her petals will gradually unfurl from a tight bud, but once open she will continue to perform, her petals becoming richer and velvety in colour.


Tess is our true red rose and is a sumptuous, romantic jewel in the crown.  For a classic winter wedding or New Year’s celebration, Tess will glisten in candlelight.

Dark red Tess roses are the protagonists of wedding-style blooms. They are my forever favorites because they scream drama and mystery. Their shape, deep red, almost blood color, and velvet look of the petals are seductive.
