Frayla ‘Mileva’

Frayla Mileva rose is an exquisite combination of beauty and elegance, making it the ideal addition to any garden. Her lush blooms burst with intense scent that recalls tea rose blooms bursting in full bloom – this variety makes a wonderful focal point and ideal for bouquets, rose beets or balconies.

Rosa hybrida cv Mileva boasts large soft pink petals and has an extended flowering period (May to October). This cultivar makes an excellent potted plant on terrace or balcony.

Rosa Mileva is an outstanding rose cultivar that boasts impressive disease resistance and maintenance needs minimal care. With large fragrant petals that produce silky textures, and its rose hydrosol possessing moderate phenylethyl alcohol chemotype with nerol, linalool, and geraniol as its major volatile compounds (nerol, linalool, and geraniol being the main ones), it yields plenty of seeds while being highly resistant to diseases that require minimal pruning – making this rose cultivar both disease resistant and low maintenance!

Frayla ‘Mildred’

Mildred is Montag’s wife who represents shallowness and mediocrity that he decries. Her shrunken physical features symbolize society’s demand for artificial beauty through diets and hair dye, while her inability to feel is evidenced through her addiction to television shows as well as indifference towards her suicide attempt. Instead, Mildred drowns herself in media, fast driving, and mindless television programs in an effort to block out any feelings that she might otherwise experience; there is no connection with him or anyone else, and she remains unaware of her own inner emptiness.

Montag tries his best to help her understand the deeper meaning of books, but is ultimately powerless to change her. Instead, she continues to cling to her TV family and soap operas instead of listening to him; ultimately threatening to burn down both house and television family altogether.

Mildred is in stark contrast to her friend Clarisse who exudes curiosity and wonder, while Mildred lacks any meaningful intellectual or emotional substance. Her lack of awareness can be seen when she refers to her TV family when asking Montag why he is reading books; further evidenced by her neglectful parenting; sending away her children for school but only seeing them three days a month when visiting; labelling herself a “machine”, she seems incapable of caring about much outside her job, TV series or soap operas.
