David Austin Recommended Variety

Category English Roses
  (Summer Flowering Varieties)
Bred By David Austin
Color Purple
Flower Type Double/Full Bloom
Size Tall Shrub
Hardiness Average
Fragrance Old Rose
Repeating None
Special Characteristics Needs a cool Winter to encourage flowering.

This excellent Shrub Rose has much in common with Constance Spry; in fact some people prefer it for its more tidy habit of growth. The flowers are large and cupped at first, opening to form a Gallica-like rosette of deep crimson, which turns with age to a beautiful purplish-maroon. These are freely produced on a shapely shrub.

It has a strong Old Rose fragrance, typical of a dark Gallica rose. Deserves to be more widely grown. Once flowering only. 6 ft. X 5 ft.
