Rosa 'Windermere' (English Rose)

Rose 'Windermere', Rosa 'Aushomer', Shrub Roses, David Austin Roses


Strong and healthy, Rosa 'Windermere' is a truly fabulous white English Rose from David Austin. Easy to grow, it features beautiful, fully double, cup-shaped, pearly cream flowers, gradually maturing to nearly pure white in the bright sunshine. Rich of a strong fruity fragrance with a delicate hint of citrus, they are borne on strong, nearly thornless stems, making them well suited for a long vase life. In addition to its beautiful clusters, Windermere forms a neat and compact bush, which blooms freely until very late in the season. This rose shrub handles the diverse growing conditions of North America, including the challenging hot, humid climate of the Southeast!

  • Blooming in flushes from late spring to fall, this rose is an excellent repeat bloomer
  • Grows up to 3-4 feet tall (90-120 cm) and 3 feet across (90 cm).
  • Featuring a lovely compact and bushy habit, this ravishing rose bush is a superb addition to beds and borders, planted with roses or other shrubs and perennials. Its soft coloring will very easily blend with a wide range of color schemes.
  • 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, well-drained soils with adequate moisture.
  • This rose was named after a beautiful lake in the Lake District of northwest 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 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.
