Rose Hedges

Rose Hedges

Roses are increasingly popular grown as spectacular flowering hedges which can be pruned between 2½ft to over 6ft in height. As well as providing a valuable feature within the garden they are also useful for dividing one part of the garden from another. To achieve a nice dense hedge, plant your bushes closely: not more than 18” apart. Hedges of David Austin’s English Roses are particularly valuable. Unlike most other hedges they will repeat flower prolifically, producing flushes of glorious, fragrant blooms throughout the summer until the first frosts. Other roses we recommend for hedging are the more compact Gallicas, Albas and modern shrub roses. Roses can also be used to create impenetrable barrier hedges which act as a deterrent to intruders. Most species roses make excellent thorny barriers, as well as some of the thorny English Rose varieties.

  1. Thomas à Becket

    English Shrub Rose
    This is a variety of very different character from the general run of English Roses, being rather closer to the Species Roses than to the Old Roses and more natural and shrubby in growth. A striking crimson-red; the individual flowers can best be described as shallowly cupped, opening as informal rosettes; the petals quickly reflexing as the flowers age. They are held in medium-sized heads; the individual blooms nodding attractively on the stem. They have an Old Rose fragrance with a strong lemon zest character. It forms a strong, rather informal shrub. Named for Canterbury Cathedral. David Austin, 2013.
