Old ROSES

The Old Roses are divided into two categories: Summer Flowering Old Roses and Repeat Flowering Old Roses. Summer Flowering Old Roses are the true Old Roses of early European origin. It was these roses that played a key part in the development of David Austin’s English Roses. Repeat Flowering Old Roses originate from the China Roses, which had the unique ability to repeat flower throughout the summer. It may be said that the English Roses have now superseded these.
