A Fragrant Garden Retreat With Roses

Planting Roses, Rose Gardening, Designing with Roses, English Roses


Dreaming of a resting spot where you could surround yourself with fragrance, color and beauty? Why don't you inspire yourself from this vignette and re-create a similar garden retreat? Grow a profusely blooming rose shrub around a sitting area to create an intimate garden room which will invite you to sit in the shade of the glorious and fragrant roses blossoms.

Here are 3 David Austin's English Roses suggestions.

Rose 'Tess of The d'Urbervilles' (Ausmove) would be a perfect choice if you like red roses. This short and compact climber produces large, bright crimson, deeply cupped flowers which beautifully contrast with the foliage of large, dark green leaves.

If you prefer warmer blossoms and a stronger fragrance, Rose 'Teasing Georgia' (Ausbaker) would be your answer! Rich of multiple awards collected around the world, including the Henry Edland Medal in 2000 for the best scented variety, this English Rose is not only pleasantly fragrant, but is also one of the most refined and robust golden roses. Replete with large, cup-shaped flowers, it provides a delightful two-tone effect: a rich, golden yellow center beautifully framed by pale yellow outer petals.

If pink is your color, consider Rose 'Strawberry Hill' (Ausrimini), an irresistible English Rose, highly regarded for its strong fragrance. This beauty enjoys pure rose pink, cupped rosettes, gradually fading at their edges to light pink and which eventually reveal the yellow stamen at their center.
