Well, I knew aboout the parentage, but not that DD has a better scent.
Now I feel pretty sure I need DD. The colors do not appeal, but for
good scent I will let them grow on me. And heaven knows I will always
need another Prima Donna rose that will swoon unless I fuss over it,
but deliver the goods if I do!


Double Delight is one of those roses that works when you see it in the
flesh. It's genuinely not photogenic. You can manipulate the white/red
colour balance of each bloom based on when you pick it (earlier = more
white).

The scent is the strongest of any rose I've ever grown or smelt.
Perhaps Radio Times is as strong, but DD is more piercing. It's a spicy,
peppery scent. If you like Granada, this is the concentrated form.

DD was the top selling rose in Australia for most of the 80s.

Oh man, you're killing me! I can't wait to get mine! Only problem is
now I have such high expectations!
