David Austin's Roses

By porkpal
February 5, 2014

Although the rose societies group his roses with the shrubs, David Austin actually created an entirely new class of roses, which he named English Roses. He crossed old garden roses with modern cultivars to combine what he regarded as the best qualities of both. He wanted to combine the graceful form, charm, and fragrance of the old roses with the disease resistance, repeat bloom, and colors of the modern hybrid teas.

This is a great summary of the work David Austin has done to create such a marvelous new type of rose. The illustrations you chose are superb!

Alas the picture of Dainty Maid that I stole from HMF disappeared. I thought it was interesting as she was so different from her daughter. How should I have posted the photo to make it "legal"?
