Rosa 'Princess Anne' (English Rose)

Rose 'Princess Anne', Rosa 'Auskitchen', Shrub Roses, David Austin Roses


Flowering over a long period in large clusters of bold cherry pink blossoms gradually evolving toward lovely shades of purple-lilac, Rosa 'Princess Anne' is a fabulous attraction in the garden thanks to its remarkable blooming performance throughout the season, its disease resistance and its spectacular blossoms filled with heart-shaped petals (about 85 petals) creating a pleasing ruffled effect. Elegantly held on a compact, bushy and upright shrub with thick and glossy foliage, the fully double blooms open in succession, providing a rich and striking color contrast between the varying age of the flowers. Delightfully scented with a medium-strong tea rose fragrance, this charming beauty was introduced in 2010 by David Austin.

  • Blooming from late spring until frost, this is an excellent repeat bloomer.
  • Grows up to 3 feet tall (90 cm) and spreads 2 feet wide (60 cm). An excellent choice for beds and borders or containers. Spectacular when combined with the cool blue colors of salvia, nepeta or lavender. 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, in rich, fertile with adequate moisture, well-drained soils.
  • Excellent resistance to disease.
  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society and named 'Best New Plant Variety' at the UK Grower of the Year Awards in 2011.
  • This lovely rose was named after Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne, Britain’s Princess Royal who is patron of Great Britain’s Riding for the Disabled charity.
  • 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 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.
