David Austin Rose Pre-Order for Spring 2020

Welcome to the World of David Austin Roses!

We are excited to offer a new Pre-Order of David Austin roses for pick-up or shipping in early spring 2020.

David Austin roses are some of the most renowned and beloved roses in the world. Since the 1950s David Austin has been working to combine the beauty and romance of old roses with the performance of modern roses. More specifically his goal has been to bring together the flower forms and fragrance of old roses with the wider colour range and repeat-flowering of modern roses.

You need only look at the photographs and to grow your first David Austin rose to understand that these English roses are unique in the rose world. They will quickly grow into magnificent shrubs and climbers that will transform your garden with their old world charm, fragrance, and performance.

Characteristics of David Austin Roses:

  • Form: David Austin roses tend to grow as shapely shrubs with a bushy mounding or arching growth habit. The climbers are strong and vigorous usually with flowering down to the base.
  • Flowers: A wide range of colours with unique multi-petaled blooms.
  • Fragrance: Renowned for their strong and diverse fragrances including old rose, tea, myrrh, fruity, and musk.
  • Repeat-flowering: Cultivars will repeat flower providing a long season of interest.
  • Design Potential: Highly versatile for different garden styles and uses including mixed flower beds, traditional rose borders, fragrant hedges, large pots and containers, for the cutting garden, and for large landscape plantings.
  • Health: Bred for vigour and garden performance with excellent disease resistance. Every cultivar is trialled under rigorous conditions for eight years before being introduced to the gardening public.

DAME JUDI DENCH – New for 2020!

Rich apricot-orange blooms, filled with many ruffled petals

A beautiful rose; the blooms are a particularly rich shade of apricot-orange, paling prettily towards the edges. Beginning as striking, red-tipped buds they gradually open to reveal large informal rosettes, each with ruffled petals and a button eye. They are very resistant to rain damage and the petals drop neatly. There is a light, but lovely, fresh Tea fragrance. A vigorous grower, it produces strong, arching stems which, over time, form an attractive mound of blooms. Named after one of Britain’s most beloved stars of stage and screen. David Austin, 2017.
