How not to fall in love with the dazzling beauty of English Roses, their fine qualities and seductive fragrance? The David Austin’s English Roses are ravishingly beautiful cultivars that combine the flower forms and perfume of Old Roses with the color range and repeat-flowering habits of modern roses. As Rose breeder, David Austin’s achievement is in marrying the romantic “English Rose” look with reliable garden performance, vigorous growth, full bushes, disease-resistance and prolific season-long bloom. Over 200 English Roses have been released since 1961, many of them receiving the highest rewards. It is no wonder, therefore, that David Austin’s English Roses are becoming increasingly popular.

Wondering which English rose cultivars have proven reliably hardy and entirely worth growing in Pacific Northwest gardens? We have asked Michael Marriott, senior Rosarian for David Austin Roses.
