We are no longer growing this rose. We maintain this listing for our customer's reference purposes.

You can find a similar rose in our David Austin Roses collection.

The double,deeply cupped light pink flowers are among the largest of any Austin rose and make wonderful arrangements. The strong fragrance marks this as one of the best. Named for a character in the popular English murder mystery series once shown on PBS stations. If you love very large fragrant rose blooms 'Brother Cadfael' is the rose for you. The giant truly globular, peony-shaped blooms are soft pink with darker pink centers. They are produced on a sturdy, bushy plant with flowers and leaves in proportion. In the heat of summer the blooms may be somewhat smaller.

Best Rose Ever

I cannot understand why this rose never became popular & why, oh why, David Austin discontinued it. There is no flower as large or spectacular, no rose so wonderfully scented. I am so frustrated that it's no longer available, as I finally have a place where i could plant a dozen of them. If it has any fault, it's that it blooms smaller in the heat & is a bit slow to re-bloom (after putting out a rose like this, who could blame it for wanting a little rest!). My efforts to take cuttings of mine have been unsuccessful & I'm down to just one. If you have one, enjoy it& be grateful!

Grows well in Pacific Northwest, large blooms and great fragrance.

Brother Cadfael does well in the Pacific Northwest; it is a tall, prolific bloomer. Color is bright pink, very pretty. Foliage is pretty and disease resistant. Love this rose.
