English Garden Rose * David Austin Rose * Introduced in 1986
The long lasting densely petaled flowers of the English Garden Rose are often in a vase in my house. The flat topped flowers have a coloring that fades from a rich apricot to cream. The leaves are a robust green on an upright 5 foot bush. I have had no disease problems but black spot and mildew are reported from less fortunate climes. If you like the quartered rose pattern of the old fashioned roses, English Garden is a great rose choice for your garden.
