Rosa 'The Lady Gardener' (English Rose)

Rose 'The Lady Gardener', Rosa 'Ausbrass', Shrub Roses, David Austin Roses


Considered one of the most fragrant and best repeat-flowering of all English Roses, Rosa 'The Lady Gardener' is incredibly floriferous, nearly covering itself in perfume and flowers from late spring to frost. It produces large, 4 in. wide (10 cm), semi-double, rosette-shaped in a rich apricot shade that will catch your eye. The rosette-shaped flowers are full-petalled with a large button eye that gradually opens up. Loosely arranged in a quartered formation, the petals (9-16 petals) delicately pale towards the outside, before eventually fading to cream all over. Strongly fragrant, a mix of Tea rose with hints of cedar wood and vanilla, the blossoms are elegantly held against the lovely green semi-glossy foliage. Short, bushy with an upright habit, this Rose stands up well to rain!

  • Blooming in flushes from late spring until frost, this Rose is an excellent repeat bloomer.
  • Grows up to 3.5 feet tall (105 cm) and spreads 2.5 feet wide (75 cm). An excellent choice for beds and borders or containers. Perfect for small gardens! 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 or partial shade, in rich, fertile with adequate moisture, well-drained soils.
  • Excellent resistance to disease.
  • Introduced in 2015 by David Austin, this lovely rose has been named to raise awareness for Plant Heritage and their important work to protect Britain’s garden plant diversity..
  • 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.
