William Shakespeare 2000, Standard (Ausromeo)

Category Standard/Tree Roses
  (English Standard Roses)
Bred By David Austin
Color Crimson
Flower Type Double/Full Bloom
Hardiness Average
Fragrance Old Rose fragrance as the rose ages.
Repeating Good
Special Characteristics Excellent disease resistance

Without doubt, the best crimson English Rose to date. It is a truly superb variety with exquisite blooms of the richest velvety crimson, gradually changing to an equally rich purple. Deeply cupped at first, the flower soon opens out to a shallow quartered cup. This rose has the strong, warm Old Rose fragrance that we expect, but do not always find, in deep red roses. Excellent disease resistance. We have planted a large bed of William Shakespeare and a mixed border of English and Old Roses at Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon. Shakespeare himself has been voted 'Man of the Millennium'.
