English Rose - bred by David Austin
Very large, many petalled, saucer-like flowers of pure soft pink. There is strong, pure myrrh fragrance. Particularly tough, reliable and healthy.
A beautiful rose with very large, saucer-like flowers filled with over a hundred small, frilly petals; the petals in each bloom are arranged around a central button eye. The blooms are a lovely shade of pure soft pink at the centre, gradually fading to palest pink at the edges. It flowers freely and repeats very quickly. There is a strong pure myrrh fragrance, typical of the English Roses.
Named after St. Swithun, Bishop of Winchester, to commemorate the 900th anniversary of the consecration of Winchester Cathedral.
