Special Characteristics Named after Charles Darwin the British naturalist who was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, close to our nursery in the UK.

The blooms of Charles Darwin are some of the largest to be found in the English Roses and are on a par with Brother Cadfael and Golden Celebration. While you may not want all the roses to be so large, it is worth having one or two for a really impressive effect. The flowers are very full and rounded at first, then opening up to a shallow cup. They are a lovely shade of rich yellow - almost Old Gold - which can be sometimes quite lemony and sometimes more of a buff/sand tint. It makes a most attractive, bushy and eye catching shrub that is very healthy and would be ideal for towards the front of a mixed or pure rose border.
