David Austin Recommended Variety

Category English Roses
(English Rose Collection)
Bred By David Austin
Flower Type Double/Full Bloom
Hardiness Very hardy
Fragrance Strong
Repeating Excellent

Before the flowers even begin to open, the outside of the buds are a most wonderful dark red with dashes of orange. When fully open the flowers are a lovely mixture of rich, almost tangerine orange on the inside of the petals and a more yellow orange on the outside; the whole set off against the very dark, bronzy green leaves that only slowly become dark green with age. It is a fairly upright but bushy shrub of medium height, that will flower freely and remain healthy. The flowers have a strong, delicious, fruity fragrance with hints of pear, grape and citrus fruits. Lady Emma Hamilton was Horatio Nelson's lover. 4 ft x 3 ft.
