Mother of Pearl
Vaselife :6 days (Long vase life, Fast blooming) Bloom size :Extra large (12cm - 14cm) Origin :Ecuador, Rosaprima
RP Moab is the latest trending wedding variety.
Dubbed as the true nude rose, Moab is very versatile making this rose suitable for wedding, events, bouquets and centerpiece work. Moab pairs well with reds, pinks, and whites.
We were impressed by Moab’s head size and flawless earth toned petals. Moab has barely any thorns and is easy to handle. Her bloom form reminds us of the Cafe Latte rose but her colour makes her seem more elegant and refined in comparison. This particular stem turned a caramel colour than the usual soft brown.
Toffee is a vintage looking rose that has a unique creamy caramel colour and opens up to reveal a very full and lush rose with a large head size. A popular choice for wedding arrangements for a rustic look. Its petals forms a star shape as the bloom matures.
Toffee has barely any thorns and was easy to handle.
The Cappuccino rose is a beige brown with a slight pink raspberry edge in colour. A very popular choice for weddings and bouquets. The Cappucinno rose is quite thorny and her head size is smaller than expected for a single head rose. Would be suitable for smaller arrangements like corsages or bouttenaires.
Vaselife :4 days (Short vase life, Fast blooming) Bloom size :Large (9cm - 10cm) Origin :Kenya, Uhuru Flowers
The Cafe Latte rose has a very unique, exquisite colour and is slightly scented. Her petals are soft and floppy. This rose has petals which are copper with purple hues which gives off a very vintage look. The copper and lilac tones vary from stem to stem. This rose has some thorns present.
She is a stunning rose that has been a huge favourite for weddings and also for any occasion.

Quicksand has been a very popular choice for weddings, bridal bouquets and event work and most occasions. She usually starts off with a sandy colour and turns blush pink as she blooms but this stem stayed a sandy colour till the end of its vase life. Quicksand has some thorns present.
Menta takes about 2 days to bloom fully and when she does, she reveals a cream, silver, dusty and lavender colour. Her unique colour makes her very versatile and a must have for any bride.
The Mentas from Kenya (Red Lands Roses) is usually quite thorny. However these ones are not as thorny.
Brown Rose Comparison
Brown roses were quite an unusual choice for floral arrangements and used to be a no-go. But ever since the Toffee rose was introduced in 2018, the interest for Brown roses quickly increased and many were choosing to use them in their floral arrangements. Brown roses gives most arrangements a neutral base that allows them to pair well with many other colors, from cream and ivory to soft pink and buttery yellow.
The newest brown variety introduced to the market is Moab!
