David Austin's RosesDavid Austin's Roses
By porkpal on 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.
