QUEEN OF SWEDEN

English Rose - bred by David Austin

Shrub Rose

Charming, cup-shaped flowers with elegant, upright growth.
  • Strong fragrance
  • Highly Recommended by David Austin Roses
  • Bred by David Austin
  • Suitable for zones 5 to 9
  • Disease resistant 

The flowers are beautiful at all stages. Exquisite little buds open to half-enclosed cups, eventually becoming wide, shallow cups. The colour begins as soft-apricot pink, gradually changing to pure soft pink over time. With its upward facing blooms and pleasing formality of form, it is a particularly good rose for cutting to create flower arrangements in the home. There is a classic myrrh fragrance – a scent closely associated with the English Roses.

It forms an exceptionally healthy shrub with bushy, upright growth and attractive musk rose foliage. Short to medium in height, it is ideal planted towards the front of a border. It is also a good choice for hedging and landscaping projects where large areas need covering.

ORIGINS

Named to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Treaty of Friendship and Commerce between Queen Christina of Sweden and Oliver Cromwell of Great Britain in 1654.
