David Austin's RosesDavid Austin's Roses
February 5, 2014

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.
