Saint Swithun Rose * David Austin Rose * Introduced in 1994

The Saint Swithun rose has interesting flowers, as the buds form there is mystery, is it white, is it red? Once it opens the flowers are pink fading to almost white. The Saint Swithun rose can be a large shrub, growing to 6-8 feet tall and can easily be trained as a climber. The new foliage is bronzed. The Saint Swithun rose is disease resistant and has not had problems in our garden.
