Dating back as far as the early 1900’s David Austin covers an extensive range of old English rose varieties and are named after rose breeder David Charles Henshaw Austin.
Renowned for their unique double, flat or slightly cupped flowers David Austin’s possess a distinct and lovely fruity fragrance and are sometimes mistaken for peony roses because of their tissue like texture and multi layered petals.
They are available in a large variety of pastel and deep red tones with tall and bushy like shrubs which can grow well in excess of two meters and can be grown as a freestanding hedge or trained as a small climber.
David Austin’s are abundant and fresh in the warmer summer months and are the perfect accompaniments for brides seeking an old world or vintage wedding theme.
