Green roses, Jade roses, and Chartreuse roses have a unique color, with a very special meaning. At the present, there are not to many of these roses available. A few Miniatures, a Hybrid Tea, and a Floribunda are the only ones that come to mind.
Did you know that flowers, and their colors have special meanings? From back in the Victorian era, when lovers would give flowers to convey hidden messages.

Rightly named "St. Patrick", these hybrid Tea roses would add something different to the reds, and pinks in the garden.
