TESS OF THE D’URBERVILLES

English Rose - bred by David Austin

Shrub Rose

Large, bright crimson blooms.
  • Strong fragrance
  • Bred by David Austin.
  • Suitable for zones 5 to 10
  • Can be trained as a climber

‘Tess of the d’Urbervilles’ bears large, bright crimson blooms. They are beautifully formed; deeply cupped with loosely packed petals intertwined at the centre of each bloom. The petals eventually turn back to give a domed, less formal, but still attractive, flower. They bend over with their weight, to give an elegant effect. There is a pleasing Old Rose fragrance. It is a good choice for cutting for arrangements in the home. 

Named after the heroine of Thomas Hardy’s novel.
