David Austin Recommended Variety
Something quite new and different. A tall shrub with rather small, dark green leaves. The flowers are delicately beautiful - about three and a half inches across - and borne on slender dark stems, with very few thorns. They are shallowly cupped in shape and of a soft pink colour, paling a little on the outer petals. As the flower opens, it gradually exposes its stamens, to add further to its beauty. The whole impression is one of delicacy and grace. It can be grown as an upright shrub of some four-five feet in height, or as a truly superb short climber of eight feet or more. Extremely healthy. There is a lovely fragrance; Old Rose with a delicious hint of fruit. 4.5 ft. x 3.5 ft. or 8 ft. as a climber. (David Austin 2002). The right to name this rose was auctioned on behalf of The National Trust to raise funds for their gardens. It was bought by Mrs. Sackler for her husband’s birthday.
