The epitome of a red rose
Especially now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, people are drawn to flowers more than ever. Red roses aren’t essential, but they’re emotional: as society is changing around us, many search for comfort and joy. Beautiful blooms such as the Ever Red rose – with their bright red color, big head size, and symmetry – provide the brief solace we desperately seek.
Ever Red roses are created by breeder De Ruiter, grown by many different farms (see list at the bottom), and easily available for floral designers at local wholesalers and for the general public at almost all flower shops around the globe.
Ever Red roses are pure and truly deep red. They are the epitome of a red rose, what true red roses should look like. It’s a special, elegant rose and comes from different growers in Kenya and Ethiopia, but also growers Russia are growing it nowadays.

The vase life is very good with 10-14 days.

His brother, Gordon Millar continues:
“At our farm, we were looking for a suitable red rose with a big head size and long vase life. Important as a grower is that you not just look what you like, but you look for flowers with genetics that are suitable to grow at your farm. We are lucky that this flower excels under our specific growing conditions. From this, we ascertained that we can get the ideal head size coupled with good length.”
