Finally, after lots of work preparing – scrubbing pots and planting – its here! Our annual rose sale! One of our most popular varieties are David Austin roses. David Austin has been developing his own roses for over 50 years in England.  He continues to successfully combine old rose form and fragrance with the color range and repeat blooming of modern roses.

He and his team start out with about 2500 seedlings each year, and extensively test them for 8 years. The result is a selection of four to six magnificent roses that meet their exacting standards for fragrance and performance.  You can expect these roses to perform for years on end in your garden.

David Austin roses, often called English roses are usually very heavily petaled, always have fragrance, and grow easily given the proper cultural conditions . Over the years they have bred roses to fit virtually every gardening need.  Compact varieties like Ambridge and Sophy’s Rose work well in large containers while larger more rambling varieties like Graham Thomas and The Wedgewood rose can be used as short climbers trailing along a fence or adorning an arbor. If you love to bring your flowers indoors, the Darcy Bussel needs to be in your garden. They have the longest vase life of all English roses and can last up to ten days to bring some color and fragrance to your home.

The Wedgewood Rose

This year, we listened to your requests and we have extended our selection of David Austin roses! We have a selection of 22 different varieties including the yellow blooming Teasing Georgia, crimson Darcy Bussell, and fragrant Clair Austin. These roses will go quickly, so make sure you reserve yours today!

If you enjoy the look and fragrance of old fashion roses, be sure to look at our David Austin selections for 2013 here at Autumn Hill Nursery.
