This rose bears beautiful, medium-sized flowers of rich apricot colouring. They are of a flat rosette shape and slightly quartered at the centre; the outer petals falling back a little and becoming paler. They have a rich tea fragrance. The foliage and young stems are bronzy-red at first, becoming dark green over time.
A very disease resistant and reliable shrub with vigorous, rather upright growth. It is particularly suited to growing at the back of a mixed border, where it will compete well with other plants.
It is named after the model village in the Wirral built by William Hesketh Lever, where they have a beautiful garden of English Roses.
