English Rose - bred by David Austin
A multi award winner, flowering with exceptional continuity
A healthy variety, which produces rich yellow blooms with exceptional freedom and continuity. There is a delicious musky tea rose scent.
Although a member of the English Musk Roses, ‘Molineux’ is closer to the old tea roses in its breeding. It flowers with exceptional freedom and continuity, bearing medium-sized blooms in the form of neat rosettes. Tinged with orange at first, they quickly become rich yellow in colour. It has a characteristic tea rose fragrance with a musky background.
It forms a healthy shrub with short, even, upright growth, similar to a Hybrid Tea or Floribunda rose. A reliable variety, it does well in all climates, be it colder than the UK or much warmer. In warmer, Mediterranean-type climates summer pruning may be beneficial to maintain its shape and to encourage quicker repeat-flowering. ‘Molineux’ is one of the best English Roses for planting in formal rose beds. It is also a good choice for a specimen plant, landscaping projects and hedging.
It was named after Wolverhampton Wanderers’ football stadium for Sir Jack Hayward, the former Chairman of the club.
