  • Description

    Bears very deep, velvety crimson blooms, with lighter coloured outer petals. They are large cups at first, becoming shallowly cupped with time. There is a strong Old Rose fragrance with fruity notes of blackberry, blueberry and damson notes. The bushy, spreading growth forms a broad shrub; the young red-bronze leaves later turn mid-green. David Austin, 2007.

Gertrude Jekyll wrote her many gardening books at Munstead Wood and it was her home for most of her life.
