An outstanding variety particularly suited to American gardening conditions, English Rose Carding Mill (Auswest) features large (3in. – 7 cm), fully double, cupped blossoms (80 petals) in breathtaking shades of pink, rich apricot, and soft yellow. Slightly nodding, they carry a strong and beautiful myrrh fragrance and offer a stunning contrast against the foliage of disease-resistant, semi-glossy, medium green leaves. Introduced by David Austin in 2004, this rose will quickly form a lovely, healthy, bushy rose shrub.

  • Blooming in flushes from late spring to fall, this rose was awarded the National Home Gardening Club Member Tested & Recommended Seal of Approval.
  • Grows up to 4 feet tall (120 cm) and 3.5 feet across (105 cm).
  • Featuring a lovely bushy habit and rounded form, this ravishing and very vigorous rose shrub is a good repeat bloomer whose striking beauty allows it to be treated as a specimen plant in the landscape. It is also a superb addition to the border, may be used for hedging and its medium size allows it to fit small gardens or large containers.
  • Plant it where you will be able to enjoy its perfume daily: near a doorway, along a path, near your patio or deck. Excellent cut flowers.
  • Best grown in full sun or part shade in rich, fertile with adequate moisture, well-drained soils.
  • Summer pruning will help to maintain the height and encourage quicker repeat flowering.
  • This rose was named after an extremely beautiful valley in the Long Mynd, a scenic area of hills and moors close to David Austin’s display gardens in Shropshire, England.
  • David Austin’s English Roses combine the flower forms and perfume of Old Roses with the color range and repeat-flowering habits of modern roses. As a 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.

Most people think of roses as finicky creatures, and many are. English Garden Roses, on the other hand, have the lush flowers and pleasing fragrance people love about roses, amply supplied on vigorous, lush, disease-resistant bushes that flower all season long.
