Rose Basanti: Yellow, Vibrant, and Premium

Is there any better combo than this? Striving for perfection, Rose Basanti by  De Ruiter  surprises everyone every time even more. Her whimsical beauty stuns upon seeing her for the first time, but as if this weren't enough, have you actually zoomed in to see the incredible, tropical, yellow sunshine color it portrays? De Ruiters notes that rose Basanti is a very special variety given its incredible versatility at the time of creating floral arrangements or bouquets, but its high-quality characteristics definitely make it a premium option when it comes to choosing roses. 

Grower Bliss Flora Ltd. Is Very happy With the Variety

Bliss Flora Ltd, a rose farm based in Njoro, Kenya has been growing Basanti since 2018. Initially, this grower had limited volumes to supply. It was sold in the direct markets and on RFH auctions occasionally. Last year, Bliss planted more Basanti to fulfill the market demand as many of his customers like it. Sachin Appachu of Bliss talks about how the rose opens up to show the filled heart of the rose, keeping the very bright color.

"Most roses when they open become a bit paler in their color when the flowers are opening. Not with Basanti, as the colors stay very bright yellow. Not a single day this rose has let me down."

There might be one little negative thing about this variety. When the flowers are offered to trade, they don't show their potential. It doesn't show that the buds are filled with so many petals. Sachin continues:

"But we know from experience that once people see how this rose opens they will never stop buying it! French floral designer Gaétan Jacquet told us: 'Les roses jaune sont splendides', -which translates to that they are really great!"



Basanti Is a High Yield Rose

With a high yield of between 120 and 130 stems per square meter, this rose is very interesting to grow. Also to the fact that just a very few are 40 cm in height. The majority of the production is 60 to 70 cm and some 50 cm and 80 cm, so perfect for the floral designers.

The breeder, De Ruiter, mentions this rose variety has a very scrumptious opening in the vase, with around 14-18 days of vase life.

Basanti is an Indian name meaning "girl born during the spring" which in turn does mean that Basanti roses are created and born during the spring to later bloom during the summer season. But wait, don't forget about the symbolism behind yellow roses as well! Joy, happiness, sunshine, and friendship are just some of the words behind the alluring beauty of Basanti roses.
