A very large shrub, producing mid pink, rosette blooms in both small and large sprays. The individual blooms have a simple beauty but are particularly impressive when viewed en masse. The foliage is fine and pointed, similar to that of a Wild Rose. It is very tough, reliable and healthy. Named after the Royal Horticultural Society’s Essex estate, which includes many English Roses. David Austin, 2004.
Origin of Name
Named after the Royal Horticultural Society’s Hyde Hall estate in Essex. Extending to 360 acres, it is home to an excellent collection of roses, including many English Roses. This beautiful garden is situated in an area with low rainfall, which creates challenging conditions for gardening when combined with the exposed nature of the site, so it is good to be able to see so many English Roses thriving there.
