Sir John Betjeman

English Rose - bred by David Austin

Shrub Rose (Sturdy)

Wide-Open Rosettes of a Bright Crimson-Red

  • Light Fragrance.
  • Repeating Blooms.
  • Suitable for zones 4 to 9. 
  • Full sun, partial shade. 


The flowers start as small buds, opening to full-petalled, wide-open rosettes of a bright crimson-red. As the flowers age, the blooms become dome-shaped while the colour – unusually for the English Roses – gradually intensifies. It forms a very bushy, neatly rounded shrub with slightly arching growth. Named after the well-known writer, journalist and broadcaster.
