There are several dark red English Roses, but this is a lighter, brighter crimson, which is slow to fade, so it has long been a valuable addition to our collection. It is related to ‘Mary Rose’ and has many of that rose's good garden qualities. The petals are loosely arranged to form beautiful, large, slightly cupped blooms that open wide and flat. Flowers are produced with remarkable continuity. There is little scent until the flower ages, when it develops a charming Old Rose fragrance.

‘L.D. Braithwaite’ looks particularly beautiful when grown in a mixed border. The bright crimson colouring stands out when viewed from across the garden. It forms a bushy, rather spreading shrub that is seldom out of flower. It will make a fine specimen rose. Position this rose toward the middle of the border.

Named after David Austin’s father-in-law, Leonard Dudley Braithwaite.
