Right after Easter 2022, Decofresh Roses introduced a brand new orange rose called Malaga. I was one of the chosen designers to be able to work with this new variety by Kenyan grower Akina. Please check what I have created and what is my opinion about this orange novelty.

First Impression of Rose Malaga

The first thing that struck me when I received the very first bucket of Malaga roses, was the very beautiful orange color. These roses are very bright, they have an astoundingly light yet warm orange color.

Perfect for Many Occasions and Events

Rose Malaga to me seems perfect for a wide range of occasions and events, big and small. I can imagine them in a luxury summery bouquet, in a lush bridal design, and for special autumn arrangements.

I have tested these new roses thoroughly, and I must say they open graciously, actually slightly as a garden rose with its heart filled with folded petals. On opening, the orange tones really come to life, and the roses start to shine brightly.



My Malaga Creations

I love to make natural creations, so that is what you see back in the design I made with this Malaga rose. The color is very natural by itself, which makes it easy for me to mix with many other flowers and greens, even plants like the Mangave.

I chose to work with them in different aspects, in table supports for decoration or in the form of a very spring-like bouquet. I used a cork as support and hedera with berries and Mangave Pineapple Express sticking out as fillers. The dark berries and serrated leaves of the Mangave give it a kind of creepy look, so more toward Halloween, perhaps?

My other designs are monovarietal. I use a single flower in a single tube or a small bottle because these roses look very pretty as a table decoration. The green and dark hedera berries support the flower perfectly.

Daughter of a Florist and a Psychoanalyst, I grew up in the world of plants and analysis. Living in the countryside, nature was all around me. After passing my BAC in Agronomy and Environment, and studying florist, I continued my studies and obtained my interior decorator diploma. I understood that I wanted to do something that looked like me, something different. The idea then arose, a fusion between the tattoo and the flower. I released my book "Inked & Blossom" that came out in June 2017. My inspirations come from everywhere, from other trades, films, books, and my imagination. We have to use everything around us. And my passions are numerous! First of all, I will say "life", then, of course, nature, the flower. I like walks in the forest, discovering all that nature can offer, the graphics it builds fascinate me.
