Chocolate Roses

Due to the popularity of brown color schemes in weddings, French rose breeder NIRP International has created a chocolate rose called the Terra Nostra.

They may still be hard to find, but for those of you using brown in your color schemes, would you want to use chocolate roses?

    I love these roses, I thought I wanted them in my bridal bouquet until I had my florist order them for a sample bouquet. The batch she recieved was more of a burgundy, rusty terra cotta color more so then chocolate brown. I opted not to put them in our bouquets. I still love the idea though.

    I think they are beautifule and I am going to use them in my wedding. They will look great with the copper roses I am getting.

    I am absolutely using those. Most of my Bouquet will be brown roses with Blue Iris. The first time I saw this picture it just took my breath away. My wedding has a very earthy theme… and my wedding dress will actually be mainly brown. So it is a good match.

    Terra Nostra is a new ” brown rose” and VERY rare. However when I did get it in, it never looked as brown as the photo. For a brown rose Estelle is more attractive.

    We have direct contact with farms in Ecuador, Columbia and California. And we can get any rose you would like. Other brown flowers to consider, Brown cymbidiums, brown Arandas and chocolate cosmos.

    I agree with the one blog, brown is best served up as an accent.

    Call any time to set up an appointment.
