English translation by Mario Beltramini



Created in England by Harkness and registered in 2005, ‘Sweet Love’ has also the name of ‘Chandos Beauty’.

Even 1 m tall and 80 cm broad shrub, with dark green foliage.

Little more than 10 cm broad flowers, with 40-80 petals spirally arranged and usually isolated, as befits the classic Hybrid Tea. Of pearly colour, with pinkish shades at the centre, they have a strong sweet and spiced fragrance, with notes of cinnamon, cloves and raspberry.

In bloom with more cycles in the garden, ‘Sweet Love’ is also an excellent cut flower.
