Description

An exceptionally beautiful rose; the distinctive blooms are very neat and rather flat. Each bloom is a lovely soft pink, with a subtle apricot hue, the smaller central petals deepening to rich apricot and surrounding a button eye, which unfurls to reveal deep-set stamens. The strong Tea fragrance becomes more Old Rose, with delicious hints of lemon and grapefruit. It forms a bushy shrub with strong, healthy, upright growth.

Origin of Name

The Brontë Society asked us to name this rose to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of the novelist, Emily Brontë.Her much-loved novel, Wuthering Heights, was published in 1847, a year before her untimely death at the age of 30.It is a dark tale of passion and revenge, centered around the relationship between Cathy Earnshaw and Heathcliff.
