William and Catherine
David Austin Recommended Variety
The flowers of ‘William and Catherine’ are particularly beautiful with the classic shallow cup shape and the very full petalled form of many of the Old Roses. At the centre of each bloom is a button eye of small inward folding petals. As the flowers first start to open the colour is a soft creamy apricot, which quickly fades to cream and then to pure white - the overall impression is very much of white. The petals drop very cleanly, which is a very important attribute in a white rose. It is an extremely healthy variety, forming a most attractive and bushy, but relatively upright, shrub. The fragrance is pure myrrh and of medium strength. ‘William and Catherine’ will be excellent for mixed borders, informal rose borders and more formal beds.
We are honoured to name this rose in celebration of the Royal Wedding of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, which was held on April 29th, 2011 at Westminster Abbey.
