David Austin Roses

 

Today we have some images of David Austin roses, sent by their proud owner.

First is the hybrid musk climber, ‘Wollerton Old Hall’, introduced in 2011.  Pale apricot, fading to cream, this has one of the strongest fragrances in the range.  It’s named for Wollerton Old Hall in Shropshire, which has one of the most beautiful private gardens in England.

Second is another climber, ‘Claire Austin’.  Named for David Austin’s daughter, and introduced in 2007, the flowers begin as pale lemon, then fade to creamy white.  This, too, has a strong myrrh fragrance.  Claire also has a nursery for hardy plants, specialising in irises, peonies and hemerocallis.
