St Cecilia (Ausmit)
David Austin Recommended Variety
Patent No. 8157

Category English Roses
  (English Rose Collection)
Bred By David Austin
Color Light Pink
Flower Type Double/Full Bloom
Size Medium Shrub
Hardiness Average
Fragrance Strong
Repeating Good

Medium sized, slightly open flowers of distinctly
cupped formation. These are held well apart in open sprays, nodding on
their stems to look at you. The colour is pale buff apricot, turning almost
to white. Altogether a most elegant rose. The fragrance is very strong and
both remarkable and unusual; an English Rose myrrh character with lemon and
almond blossom. St. Cecilia is the patron saint of music and musicians. Attractive, neatly formed and medium-sized rosettes
in shades of glowing apricot. The growth is particularly strong, sending up
numerous upright branches from the base _ making it suitable for further
back in the border. For good flowers, this variety requires pruning to half
its size. Reliable and disease resistant. A delightfully fresh fragrance in
the Tea Rose tradition, developing a cool lemon character as the flower
