Lady Emma Hamilton (Ausbrother)
David Austin Recommended Variety

Category English Roses
  (English Rose Collection)
Bred By David Austin
Flower Type Double/Full Bloom
Hardiness Very hardy
Fragrance Strong
Repeating Excellent

A variety of rather unusual colouring for an English Rose, but nonetheless very pleasing and useful for creating a little excitement in the border. Before the flowers even begin to open, the outside of the buds are a most wonderful dark red with dashes of orange. When fully open the flowers are a lovely mixture of rich, almost tangerine orange on the inside of the petals and a more yellow orange on the outside; the whole set off against the very dark, bronzy green leaves that only slowly become dark green with age.
It is a fairly upright but bushy shrub of medium height, that will flower freely and remain healthy.
The flowers have a strong, delicious, fruity fragrance which - it has been suggested - has hints of pear, grape and citrus fruits.
Lady Emma Hamilton was Horatio Nelson's lover and we have named this rose to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. 4 ft. x 3 ft. (1.2 m 0.9 m).
