William Shakespeare 2000 (Ausromeo)
David Austin Recommended Variety
Patent No. 13993

Category English Roses
  (English Rose Collection)
Bred By David Austin
Color Richest, velvety crimson changing to rich purple.
Flower Type Double/Full Bloom
Size Medium Shrub
Hardiness Average
Fragrance Old Rose.
Repeating Good
Special Characteristics Superb, richly coloured flowers on a very disease resistant, rounded shrub. Excellent repeat flowering.

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. The growth is neat and upright; each stem bearing a number of flowers. 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'.
