We regard this as one of the most beautiful of the English Roses. The flowers are quite large and of exquisite formation - the petals turning up at the edges to form a shallow saucer, filled with many small petals. There is a button eye in the centre. It is sweetly fragrant, with a charming, medium-strong Old Rose scent. The foliage is attractive with little disease.

The growth is ideal, being of medium height, bushy and upright, yet well-rounded, giving it a rather refined character. It is in every way an excellent garden plant. Ideal for the border or for bedding.

Named after Eglantyne Jebb, from Shropshire, who founded the Save the Children fund.
