Juliet Rose's The Juliet Rose is the most costly rose ever created, costing its designer, David Austin, $3 million (PS2.3 million) over a 15-year period. The eye-catching flower, which debuted in 2006 at the Chelsea Flower Show, has large-headed flowers. It is named after Juliet Barton, who owned the land on which it grows.
There are many different types of roses that range in price from inexpensive varieties available in grocery stores to rare, luxury blooms sold in specialty shops for hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Here are the most expensive roses in history.
The Juliet Rose by David Austin ($3 million over 15 years)
This spectacular rose was designed by British architect and gardener David Austin and made its debut in 2006 at the Chelsea Flower Show. It took three years to develop and costs about $300,000 (PS375,000) to produce a single flower. The stunning sight of these roses overflowing with huge red flowers won them a place in the record books as the most expensive rose ever sold. There have been reports that the plant seller who bought the garden also wanted to sell the rose but were unable to find a buyer.
It is believed that there are only four plants left of this special variety and they are all in private collections.
Juliet Rose, on the other hand, excels them all in the rose family. In contrast to the Kadupul flower, which is priceless, the Juliet Rose is precious and may cost up to $5 million. The flower took almost a decade to make, making it one of the most costly. It's estimated that the total cost of creating one Juliet Rose is about $150,000.
The Daffodil was created by Leon Despencer Adams, who was inspired by a daffodil he saw while visiting Switzerland. He decided to create his own version and named it after Queen Victoria. Like many other flowers, it takes years before you get your first daffodil. It usually takes three to five years before a farmer will sell you an entire plant instead of just the flowers. Once it begins to bloom, however, the price drops dramatically so it can be sold for less than the cost of production.
The Carnation is the cheapest of the three, costing only $12 to produce. Even though they last for decades, they are still considered a novelty flower. No one buys them except florists who use them as filler in arrangements.
The Rose is the most expensive flower in the world. The creation of a single Juliet Rose can take more than 10 years and costs up to $5 million.
The Juliet rose is a one-of-a-kind flower that took over ten years to produce, making it one of the most costly flowers ever created. When completely opened, the flower has delicate peach-colored petals and looks lovely. However, because making a Juliet requires so many different varieties of plants being grown simultaneously, they can be quite expensive.
Another rare flower is the Empress Josephine butterfly rose. This particular variety of rose was given to Empress Josephine when she was still a princess. It's believed that only three of these roses were planted by the gardener who worked at the French palace where Josephine grew up. These days, they can cost more than $100,000 per rose!
Finally, there is the Chinese red rose. These roses have dark red petals that range in size from small to large. They're also known as "cultivated" or "gardensweet" roses because they make excellent garden plants that need little care other than watering during dry periods. The largest collection of Chinese red roses can be found in California at several botanical gardens including the Huntington Gardens and the San Francisco Botanical Garden.
These are just a few of the many types of roses available today. There are hundreds of different varieties of roses growing all over the world.
