Benjamin Britten® (own root) 1.5 grade
Rosa English Rose

More brillant in color than many of the Austins, this bright cerise-red blend has quickly gained a notable place among English rose lovers. The fragrant full cupped flowers keep their intense tones from opening to finishing, showing a nice contrast to the green of the leaves. Very vigorous.

Carding Mill® (own root)
Rosa English Rose

Carding Mill (Auswest) has flowers of beautifully mixed shades of pink, apricot and yellow, overall, giving the impression of rich apricot. At the bud stage, when the petals are just starting to unfurl, the inside of the petals are a very rich, deep apricot as opposed to the paler, soft yellow undersides. When fully open the center of the flower is well filled with petals, their closeness giving the impression of a rich, apricot - pink. Around the center, the loose ring of petals curl in slightly and so show their pale apricot yellow undersides. It will quickly make a lovely, bushy, rounded shrub with quite straight stems, the many flowers nodding just slightly. There is a strong and beautiful myrrh fragrance. 40-80 petals (David Austin 2004)

Darcey Bussell™ (own root)
Rosa English Rose

Darcey Bussell is one of the best and most healthy red roses 'we have bred to date' according to David Austin. Its beautiful flowers are produced freely and with excellent continuity. When young, their outer petals form a perfect ring around an inner cup; gradually opening out to form a perfect rosette. The colour is a deep rich crimson that takes on a tinge of mauve just before the petals drop. It has a pleasing, fruity fragrance with hints of green notes.
This rose, with its short, bushy growth, is an excellent shrub for the front of the border or for planting in formal rose beds. It will make an excellent plant for a large pot. It is our first fully double crimson to be released since the best selling William Shakespeare 2000 and is perfect for gardeners who would prefer a more compact shrub.
Darcey Bussell is the highly acclaimed ballerina. She was appointed principal at the Royal Ballet at the age of 20 and has danced in the title role of many ballets around the world. She has been honoured with many awards including the OBE in 1995.

Lichfield Angel™ (own root) 1.5 grade
Rosa English Rose

Lichfield Angel has flowers which start as charming peachy pink cups, gradually opening to form neatly cupped rosettes. Each bloom has a perfect ring of creamy-apricot waxy petals enclosing numerous smaller petals. Eventually the petals turn back to form a large, domed, creamy-white flower. The overall effect in the mass in sunshine is almost pure white.
Lichfield Angel will form a vigorous, rounded shrub which, with its blooms nodding attractively on the branch, will make a fine sight.
It is very useful in a border, as it blends well with all other colours and will act as an intermediary between pinks and yellows.
The fragrance is generally light but has strong elements of clove at one stage.
Lichfield Angel is a limestone sculptured panel, from the 8th century, which was recently discovered in Lichfield Cathedral. It depicts the Archangel Gabriel and still bears the remnants of Saxon paint.
