David Austin Recommended Variety
This is a variety of great Old Rose charm, with some of the character of the Alba Roses. Rich rose pink buds open to reveal pure pink flowers, which gradually become a softer shade as the flowers age. The blooms have an informal rosette shape. At first there is a button eye in the centre but eventually a cluster of stamens is just visible in the middle. There is a light fragrance. ‘Lady Salisbury’ flowers with remarkable continuity from early summer onwards. The matt green leaves and bushy growth are very much in the style of the Old Roses. This rose, like many other English Roses, works wonderfully well when planted amongst the true Old Roses, having the very great advantage of a much longer flowering season. ‘Lady Salisbury’ would also be excellent in a mixed border with perennials.
We are naming this to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, the home of Lady Salisbury. It was built by Robert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury in 1611. The gardens at Hatfield are very well known and loved, featuring a great many roses. Lady Salisbury is a passionate gardener and will be planting the new rose in the West Garden.
