Rose variety: Maroussia


This dreamy rose is a soft white, with a touch of green on the outer petals.  It’s long stemmed and has a lovely large head, with up to 55 petals.  It has a strong stem and can last up to 2 weeks.  To top off a perfect white rose, it also has a delicious fragrance.


Maroussia is used in all types of floristry including gifts, events and funerals.  It is particularly popular for wedding flowers.  The floral cloth above was made by Robert Koene as part of designs for a church wedding. It consists of 250 maroussia roses and 800 stachys leaves.  Each petal was individually placed in the intricate design.


Robert Koene and his team used 7,500 roses to transform the church.  The theme was ‘tears of happiness’, the conical designs along the aisle symbolised teardrops.  White Naomi Roses and Feeling Dark Green Chrysanthemums were also used in the designs.
