The Shepherdess (Austwist)
David Austin Recommended Variety

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

A most charming rose with flowers of medium size and deep, open-cupped shape. Their colour is a lovely rich apricot pink, that fades on the outer petals to pale apricot while remaining the same at the centre; adding up to a delightful mixture.
There is a lovely fruity rose fragrance with hints of lemon.
This is a healthy variety of rather upright, bushy growth. It is ideal for the front of the border, but might also be used for a more formal setting in a rose bed.
The Shepherdess is named after a character in Sir Philip Sidney's Arcadia, published in 1593.
3 ft. x 2 ft. (0.9 m x 0.6 m).
