THE POET'S WIFE
English Rose - bred by David Austin
Beautiful, cupped flowers with a rich, fruity fragrance
Beautifully formed, cupped flowers of strong, unfading yellow. Rich, fruity fragrance. Low, naturally rounded growth.
‘The Poet’s Wife’ is a superb rose with flowers of an unfading, strong yellow. Their formation is most pleasing, having a neat outer ring of petals enclosing an informal group of petals within. There is a rich fragrance with strong lemon tints at first, becoming sweeter and stronger with age.
It forms a naturally arching shrub, with rather shiny Leander-type foliage. It is perfect for incorporating into a traditional rose border or for blending with other plants in a mixed border.
