English Roses

David Austin has spent the last sixty years developing his award-winning English Roses. Combining the delicate charm and wonderful fragrances of the Old Roses with the wider colour range and repeat-flowering nature of modern roses, they are hard to beat for sheer exuberance of flower and scent. As a group they are renowned for their outstanding health, reliability and vigour. Their graceful, shrubby habits make them ideal for mixed borders, planting in large containers or for creating any kind of rose garden. Many varieties can also be trained as climbers or used to create fragrant, floriferous hedges.
