The Pilgrim Rose * David Austin Rose * Introduced in 1991
The Pilgrim rose has flat topped 3" quartered blooms that entrance me. The buds show a hint of red underlayed by yellow and open to a soft yellow fading to near white. The flowers are very fragrant. The Pilgrim rose can be a large shrub, often growing to 8 feet or more. I have had few disease problems in spite of growing this rose near the coast. Parents include 'Graham Thomas' and 'Yellow Button'.
