Cupped blooms open from deep raspberry-red buds held in sprays of six to twelve above newly emerged leaves richly tinted with red. As the disease-resistant foliage matures, Alexander Mackenzie takes on a dark green sheen that provides the perfect backdrop for deep red blooms. His very double 3” blooms with 45 petals emit the aroma of raspberries that will delight the senses.

Alexander Mackenzie is a fun, happy rose baby. I can’t wait to see him mature. These blooms, while small, are the longest lasting of all my roses and a vigorous repeat bloomer.

Vigorous and Pretty

Planted this late April 2023 in central Maine. It has been an interesting growing season here and very wet spring. This rose, though still small has tripled in size in just a few short months and already prolifically putting out many full size hot pink blooms that hold their shape well. They are gorgeous bouquet cut stem quality, although I won't cut just yet due to it's still small size (it's put on lots of growth, but I did just plant it this year after all). Lovely light fruity/raspberry rose scent. I am so pleased with it. Very easy keeper and hardy. Great beginner rose. Note: I did fertilize with an all purpose fertilizer exactly one month post planting after I noticed it putting out leaf buds and shoots, signifying roots were established. Highly recommend!

Takes time to take off, but now looking great!

This rose was a tiny thing that did almost nothing for several seasons in my garden. Stayed about 12 inches, with few, tiny blooms. Suddenly, it's showing itself and has rapidly matured into a short climber that is trained on an obelisk now. Don't be discouraged if your rose doesn't seem to do much at first. It looks great after having time to mature. I would add a photo, but do not see an option for that.


I planted this rose in the perfect spot and it has grown quite big in the year l have had it. It only bloomed once though in the Spring and that was it. The rose next to it, Abraham Derby, planted later, puts it to shame. If it does the same next year l am going to dig it up as it is in a prime spot for roses.
