Of course you end up knowing all the names of the roses you have in the garden. At the beginning it looks impossible but after a while the names come to you even without thinking.
There are occasions when the rose itself shouts at you “look at me and stop memorizing!”. And in this case is totally right. Although is a rose with a really beautiful deep red colour, it is not as a bud.
This rose is called “Black Madonna”. Looking at it only something with “black” could only be proper but I have no idea of the story behind the whole name. Which Madonna is it after? Do you perhaps know about it?
It is a tea rose and its best characteristic is the velvet touch of the petals.
