Every type of rose has its own flavor and personality: Hybrid Teas offer a stately elegance, Floribundas give a youthful display of color, and Old Garden Roses portray a timeless beauty. But more than any other rose, English Roses capture the romance of the flowers and of the garden. With their abundance of full-bodied blooms in varying shades including pastel pinks, apricot blends, rich yellows, and deep reds, the English Rose is truly a work of art.
More than 70 years ago, David Austin began breeding roses as an amateur rose breeder in England and in 1961 introduced the first English Rose. Today, the David Austin Roses are some of the most popular rose varieties among true rose lovers. His rose creations have the notable cupped or rosette forms and heady fragrances of the old roses as well as the repeat flowering capability, health, and wide color range of the modern roses.
The enchanting qualities of David Austin Roses come in many shapes and sizes, including Climbing and Rambling Roses, as well as shrub roses. The English Roses also offer great versatility and can be planted in large containers for your terrace or planted with herbaceous plants to create a wonderful mixed border.
As a premier provider of own-root David Austin Roses, Heirloom Roses is pleased to help you fill your garden with these beautiful and desirable varieties. Choosing roses from our David Austin Roses collection will certainly give you a garden to gush about!
